If you want to explore the best of Roatan's underwater sites then the Roatan Certified 2-tank Scuba Dive at Mary's Place and Shipwreck Excursion is the one for you. Board a boat with a maximum capacity of 16 divers, making this an intimate excursion. The dive groups will be limited to 8 divers per divemaster, making safety a priority. First, you will dive one of Roatan's most renowned reefs, Mary's Place, then depending on the weather conditions, your second dive will be at either the wreck of Prince Albert or Mr. Bud.
Once your cruise ship has docked in Roatan you will meet your guide at a convenient location right outside of your Roatan pier. Board you comfortable transportation and enjoy the quick 10-minute drive south to French Cay. You may choose to bring along your own Scuba Equipment or rent it on site.
Once aboard your boat, you will only have a short ride to the first dive site, famous Mary's Place. This site normally has fantastic visibility with an average temperature of 81-85°F (27-29°C). The maximum depth is 100 feet. Depending on your air consumption, you will spend up to an hour exploring the amazing walls and breathe taking crevices that make Mary's Place so famous. Hard corals, black coral, sponges of all kinds and gorgonia decorate the walls. Keep your eyes open for seahorses, juvenile spotted drums, anemones, fire worms and lionfish!
Next, you will head a short distance away to complete your second immersion of the trip, either Prince Albert or Mr. Bud. Prince Albert was an Island Freighter that in 1987 was sunk intentionally by Coco View Resort to create an artificial reef and wreck dive site. The tank sits upright in 60 feet of water. With a length of 137 feet, there is plenty of wrecks to explore. Keep an eye out in the blue for passing Eagle Rays! The wreck of Mr. Bud is equally as fascinating. Once a cargo and Shrimp boat, Mr. Bud has been sunk since 1995. The wreck sits upright in 60 feet of water. This 75-foot long boat sits in a sandy channel between two large coral heads and along the ledge of a wall, making it a visually interesting dive. Large sponges as well as hard and soft coral have attached and grown along the wreck, making it an inviting home for all sorts of marine life.
Upon your return to land after your two fantastic and memorable dives, you will have two options: you can head directly to Frenchy's 44, a local bar and restaurant to refresh yourself with food and drinks, or you can choose to pay an additional $20.00 to visit Little French Key, a close by island. The additional fee gets you to the island and entrance. On Little French Key you can purchase food and drinks at the restaurant or snorkel, kayak, or paddleboard along with other beach activities. You must decide before your dives what time you would like your guide to return to transport you back to the cruise ship pier so that they know when to pick you up. Once aboard the transportation, you will be brought right back at your Roatan cruise ship pier.
