Scuba Diving in Roatán, Honduras - March 2020 (4K)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
On our March 2020 trip to Roatán, we were joined by our niece who successfully completed her Open Water certification. We also hosted a family of four Open Water divers, who are good friends of ours from back home.
 
Unfortunately, the diving conditions were not great with extremely high winds, waves and surge. The visibility was the worst that we have ever seen with a lot of particulate in the water and generally poor lighting. Macro conditions were also suboptimal due to the strong surge.
 
To make matters worse, I lost a full day of diving to food poisoning and then came down with a bad case of Dengue Fever, two weeks after getting home. At least it wasn't Covid-19!
 
Please also note the special message at the end of this video. Our reefs are currently under threat of overfishing due to the Covid-19 lockdown. The Roatán Marine Park is working closely with local dive shops and the Honduran Navy to step up marine patrols but their resources are limited. If you want to help protect the natural beauty of our reefs, please consider making a donation to the Roatán Marine Park at www.roatanmarinepark.org.
 
Thanks to Danny and Mia at Barefoot Divers and Rino at Jackson's Dive Centrer for the great dives!
