Roatan is known for exciting swim-throughs to the coral wall and lots of sea horses, while Utila is known for whale sharks, although of course they are never guaranteed. In between the islands, you'll dive amazing sea mounts covered in coral and fish. This is a great trip for both experienced and new divers, and it's possible to complete PADI open water or junior open water certification on board.
Come experience diving with a friendly and fun group of gay and lesbian parents, "guncles", fun aunts, and our friends and guests, both LGBT and straight. We are happy to match you with an adult roommate if traveling solo (each cabin has two beds).

Information regarding Jr. Divers:
Parent or Guardian will be solely responsible for Jr. Diver on board and off board and must accompany Jr. Divers on all dives. We highly recommend DAN diver insurance for both Parent/Guardian and Jr. Divers.
A PADI Jr. Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 40ft/12M. (IMPORTANT: This may limit joining most of the dives for the guided dive trips because they will be deeper than 40ft/12M)
A 12 to 14-year-old Jr. Open Water Diver is qualified to dive to 60ft/12M only when accompanied by a certified diver of legal age. Your certification automatically upgrades on your 15th birthday at which time you can apply to PADI for an adult certification card.
The Jr. Advanced Open Water course extends your depth qualification to 70Ft/21M for ages 12-14.
Age 15 qualifies for adult certification card.
There are direct flights to and from Roatan (RTB) on Saturdays on American Airlines, United Airlines, and Delta Airlines.
Connecting service to Roatan is also available on Avianca (formerly TACA) Airlines, a Star Alliance partner airline.
