Diving on Roatan with RDC .....
At Roatan Dive Center our morning dives leave at 8.30am for a 2 Tank dive and we ensure an adequate surface interval between dives and in the afternoon we offer a single-tank trip at 2.00pm.
We offer dedicated Night dives upon request.
As part of our uniqueness, we offer a full valet service, where we do the work and you just dive! Onboard are Full Scuba Tanks all in hydro test, DAN Oxygen & DAN First Aid kit and a dive spares kit, purified water, and fresh fruit all on board. Gear storage is available throughout your stay for convenience. We dive in small groups and provide a knowledgeable and experienced Dive Professional to guide the dive, coupled with depths and profiles for experienced and beginner divers.
Dive times are flexible (generally 45 to 60 minutes) depending on variables like air consumption, actually planned and previous dive profiles and most sites and dive profiles allow the divers to ascend close to the boat at around the 45-50 minute mark, meaning the whole group is not affected if someone gets low on air.
Most dive sites offer a stationary entry and return to the dive site mooring line, on others we drift and do a live drop. We select our dive sites based on conditions and our diver’s interests. There is no set weekly dive site schedule so, feel free to tell us what type of dives you like and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. We are ideally located on the South Shore of the island, in an idyllic corner of the Dixon Cove at the Casa Nikte Boutique Hotel, just minutes from Roatan's Top Dive sites. Coupled with fully paved road access all the way from the main road to the large car park right outside the Dive Center. On Staff we have some of the Most Qualified and Experienced Professionals found anywhere in the Bay Islands, making your dive experience or Scuba Training even more enjoyable. Roatan Dive Center is a full-service Dive Center and both the Dive Center & Resort are open to resort guests and the general public every day. Enjoy our small personalized groups and professional dive service.
