Below are a few key pieces of information that you should know.
Our dive trips leave at 8:30 am, 10.30am and 2:00 pm each day.
We ask that you arrive 30 minutes before the boat leaves so we have time to fit your gear and complete any necessary paperwork.
Roatan is in the Central American Time Zone, which is one hour ahead of Eastern Time and “cruise ship time” during the months of October to May. We operate in local time, so please plan accordingly or you will miss the boat.
If you are driving in, please allow sufficient time for traffic, particularly during high season.
If you are diving, please bring your certification card, or we can’t take you diving. If you are PADI-certified we can look up your certification online.
If possible, please book in advance. In order to offer Valet service, we take a maximum of six divers on the boat at a time and we do get fully-booked, particularly during high season.
Our rental equipment is extremely well-maintained. You may find it easier and more economical to use our equipment even if you have your own gear.
Thanks for taking the time to review this information, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
