Liveaboard Diving in Honduras

The Bay Islands of Honduras feature lush coral, impressive sponges, iridescent fish, large manta rays, and elusive whale sharks.

Liveaboard diving on the underwater mountain range of Roatan, Utila, Guanaja offers scuba divers dramatic walls, vibrant reefs and cracks and crevices to explore in depths ranging for 5m to 60m. This area is famous for whale sharks, dolphins, and rare black coral. 

The Cayman Trench, off the coast of Roatan, has created amazing canyons, trenches, walls and reefs for scuba divers to enjoy. There are a limited number of Honduras liveaboards operating in the area, making this a more unique liveaboard dive destination.

Mary's Place is one of Roatan's most spectacular dive sites. A deep crack formed by volcanic activity, this dive site offers stunning coral overhangs, large sea fans and sponges creating a haven for seahorses, lobster, octopus and schools of multi-colored fish. Liveaboard diving near Utila offers sheer walls and drop-offs on the north side, and healthy, vibrant reefs on the south side. The Black Hills dive site, located on the southeast end of the island, is a colorful, effervescent seamount. Between 10 - 50m, scuba divers will see tropical fish by the hundreds including barracuda, horse eyed jack, and Creole wrasses. Encrusted with beautiful corals, this dive is a very rich, vivid experience.

Guanaja is the most remote of the Bay Islands and includes shallow reefs, wrecks, volcanic outcroppings and wall dives. Take a Honduras diving cruise to Mestizo Reef, featuring two life size head-and-shoulder statues of Christopher Columbus and local chief, Lempira. There is also a shipwreck, Spanish cannons and a 16th century bell to explore among a large variety of fish and thriving coral life. This dive is the perfect underwater photography opportunity!

You can dive the Honduras Bay Islands all year long. The pleasant, tropical climate experiences little fluctuation in temperature. The average temperature is 29.4° C. Humidity is highest from May to September. Water temperature varies between 27-31° C. Dive visibility ranges from 24m-45m but can diminish slightly during the rainy season which runs from October to January.

The time spent diving in Honduras was a trip of a lifetime. We've talked about the Aggressor, the diving, the staff/crew, and the food countless times since returning from our trip. We had never been on a liveaboard and now that is the ONLY way we want to dive moving forward. We are beyond excited to have found this incredible company. Thank you so much to all the stunning staff/crew of Roatan Aggressor!

I was very impressed with the life underwater. With so many divers visiting that area, I wondered if that impact would show. I think Honduras is managing their jewel very well.
