Sofia has been guiding and teaching divers on Roatan since 2005. She is an excellent teacher: very patient and thorough, she builds confidence and really gets the best out of her students, especially kids. Sofia’s favorite dive site is West End Wall, where fish literally “rain” over divers. She also loves looking for small creatures like nudibranchs, tiny shrimp and juvenile fish. Outside of diving, she enjoys paddle-boarding and learning to play golf.
