Anthony’s Key Roatan, Honduras, Oct 24 – 31, 2015
This Trip is Sold Out!
Join MadisonScuba on our trip to beautiful Roatan for a week of fantastic diving led by JoAnn. We will be staying at Anthony’s Key Resort for hassle-free diving. Reached by a brief boat ride from the resort’s main grounds, the tiny islet that is its namesake features private bungalows and spectacular ocean vistas. The average temperature in Roatan is around 85 degrees with a tropical climate. Water temperature is mid-80’s with visibility ranging from 70-80’.
For the wreck lovers, there are a couple wreck dives available, the Aguila and the Odessey. Both of these dives are intermediate to advanced dives. There are also shark and dolphin add-on dives available. All boat trips to get to the reef are typically 5-30 minutes with surface intervals spent back at the Resort. How awesome is that?

The fine points
Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended. In the event of a hurricane, this insurance will cover your costs if the trip has to be cancelled because of a storm or even in the event of losing days of diving due to high winds/waves and the port is closed. Contact JoAnn for trip insurance options. It is also strongly recommended that all divers have diver medical insurance.
