Wreck Dives

Wreck diving in Roatan

Roatan’s wrecks are well located on both sides of the island, allowing you to enjoy diving on them all year-round. They are all within recreational diving limits, resting on sandy bottoms and close to reef walls, meaning you almost get three types of dives in one! El Aguila is a 225-foot cargo ship, sunk in 1997 and our favorite due to the large amount of marine life in and around this wreck and the healthy reef system right next to it. The bigger Odyssey was sunk in 2002; this 300-foot freighter has a larger superstructure that makes for impressive viewing and great NITROX diving. Advanced Open Water certification is required to visit both of these wrecks, due to their depths. On the Southside, the soft-coral-adorned Prince Albert and the most recently sunk Mr. Bud are both excellent for macro life lovers and they both rest in shallower depths, allowing for longer exploration.

 

Diver’s tip: Carry a torch to look inside the wreck through openings and windows.
