Roatan Diving - West End Wall

Located in Roatan near West Bay beach. West end wall is situated almost to the point after west bay, which is why it is a great dive site as the chance of spotting larger pelagic fishes is greater. It can be a deep dive down to the josie joe if your a tech diver as that is at 50m. Normally people just delight in the pillar coral sponges that are on this wall. Some big lobsters live here and they are common to spot. As with a lot of the diving in Roatan it is a drift dive and dropping in you normally drift towards the point.

Love Tunnels - thanks to http://www.globotreks.com/

This site is located north of San Pedro and the site got its name as a couple got married in the mouth of this huge tunnel. At a depth of 60ft we swim through the tunnel that comes out on the edge of the drop off at approx. 90ft, due to the unseen approach we have spotted many large pelagic cruising the drop-off, as we exit the tunnel.

Scuba at M&M Dive Site, San Pedro, Belize

Located north of San Pedro town lies M & M Caverns one of Ambergris Caye's best cavern dives. The underwater topography is deep spur and groove formations formed by the wave action over thousands of years. It is literally riddled with swim through and tunnels.

CYPRUS GARDENS South Ambergris Caye

This is an excellent site for all types of coral species, such as huge Pillar Corals, Elkhorn, Stag horn corals and very abundant with small reef fish and critters. Located in 50ft of water, this has long been one of my favourite sites for the sheer quality of the coral formations and the superb Macro photo opportunities. This site focuses on smaller marine life associated with coral reef and is sure to be a hit with visiting divers not to be missed.

HOL CHAN MARINE RESERVE PILLAR CORALS South Ambergris

Hol-Chan Marine Reserve 5 square miles of protected habitat, makes for some great diving. One of our favorites is Pillar Coral, a 60ft dive with some wonderful Pillar coral formations, great for photography as during this dive there are resident grouper and Snappers that will follow you throughout the dive. It's easy to position them around the Pillar corals giving the opportunity for some great pictures.

Hol Chan Cut Divesite

Cover Image- https://ambergriscaye.com/photogallery/150309.html

Another great site, this is a cut that allows passage through the Belize barrier reef to the open sea. Starting at 8ft and sloping down to a maximum of 25ft, this is an underwater wonderland with literally thousands of fish, including huge groupers and the biggest snappers you have ever seen.

Amigo's Wreck

This used to be of my favourite sites, and fantastic for photography, is the wreck of an old barge located in 70ft of water in front of Shark Alley. It was sunk by Amigo's Del Mar, a local dive operator and is named after them.

Not so much a dive site but a phenomenon where you can swim with rays and nurse sharks in 8ft of water.
Its south of Hol-Chan Marine reserve in zone D.

Texas

You go out to the point and depending on the current will drift either side. Or you can do this dive from the walls either side and go out towards the point. Look out for the Sargassum trigger fish here as they are pretty blue and not anywhere else on the island of Roatan so thats a great find. This site attracts more pelagic s like baracuda and jacks here as the currents and interest bring them in. So if it goes off its a great dive.

The worlds most amazing 12 foot deep dive. Fisherman would use this area to jettison dead small fish and the less edible guts from cleaning the fish and it (over time) attracted many many stingrays to this area. It has now turned into a commercial dive site. Further east is Stingray Sandbar at just 3 feet it offers those not holding a diving license nor liking swimming in depth to enjoy the same fantastic flying creatures.

At the foot of petit piton one of the iconic mountains that makes any tourist shot of St Lucia instantly recognizable is  the dive site called Supermans Flight - as in the film Superman he flies by this peak and this being a drift dive well you get the picture.

It's not a vertical wall no, more gentle and you can do a deep dive here I hit 30 m and decided that there was nothing to see more and wanted to extend my dive so joined the others at around 25 m for the first segment. It carries on with the same topography for the reminder of the dive.

Above the water you have gros and petit pitons and here under the water you have them too ! Rising from depths of about 60 ft we did a figure 8 around them and came back to our boat's mooring.
