Start this unique Roatan Excursion with a scenic ride from your Roatan Coxen Hole or Mahogany Bay cruise pier to the famous Pristine Bay Resort.You will get checked in with the dive center staff and after filling out the paperwork, you will head to the dock and individual boat capacities that range from 8 to 30 people plus at least two staff members. You can just sit back and relax as you travel to sites that are actually quite close. You may bring your own dive gear or you may choose to get the gear at the dive center - see the pricing options. The dive shop offers top of the line brands of regulators, fins, masks, BCD's and more. If there are any in your group that would like to go along but not go out on the boat, take a look at our Roatan Pristine Bay Resort Day Pass Excursion

Most Roatan SCUBA Diving Excursions are at the west end of the island. But your virtually untouched dive sites are located on the central-north shore typically not visited by other dive excursions. In fact, many of these sites went undiscovered until the dive shop opened up in 2012 and are almost all within 15 minutes from the dock. The topography is extremely varied with slopes, ridges, walls, and sand patches.
The boat captain and dive master will determine the 2 best locations of the day. In between the first and second dive, the surface interval will be on the boat where bottle water and a snack will be served. The snack is typically cookies, fresh fruit or cake. If there are any member of your group or family that would like to go along on the boat with you and snorkel while you are diving, please look at our Roatan Pristine Bay Snorkeling and Resort Break Excursion.
See the sites in further detail below. Your dive master will assist you with your gear and then lead the group into the water to explore. When your two tank diving adventure comes to an end, the dive excursion boat will return to the resort where you can relax on the beach, dip in the pool, lounge in a chair and just enjoy the resort for approximately 2 hours. There is 2 restaurants that you may purchase food and drinks at before you return back to your Roatan Coxen Hole or Mahogany Bay cruise pier. There will be taxis waiting outside the resort for the return trip.

Following the maze, upward to the top of the reef, you will find schools of chub, wrasses, and most notably black surgeons. Makes for a nice safety stop all the way back to the boat.
