Guanaja, Honduras Sep 5-12, 2015
Join MadisonScuba on our trip to beautiful Guanaja, “the other Bay Island of Honduras” for a week of fantastic diving at G&G’s Clearwater Paradise Resort. The tropical climate of Guanaja yields an average air temperature of 85 degrees with a water temperature in the mid-80’s and visibility ranging from 70-80’. The island’s 45 plus dive sites are known for healthy reefs, pinnacles, volcanic caverns, and shipwrecks.
Guanaja is for travelers, not vacationers. If you want nightly entertainment, zip-line tours, buffets, shopping and lots going on, Guanaja is not for you. If you want seclusion, quiet, a relaxing but friendly atmosphere, with hammock time, fabulous pristine diving and snorkeling, and fabulous food, come to Guanaja.
The diver price is $1,775.00 per person/double occupancy. Ask us about non-diver or the single supplemental charge. Once at the resort, G&G’s operates on a “cash only” basis.

Diving and more
At G&G’s divers aren’t limited to 40 minutes dives. You’ll be in the water as long as the dive profile and your air consumption allows. Due to the way the reef comes up to the surface, most of your dives can be an hour plus. We will take advantage of that during most dives. Dives lasting over an hour are not uncommon.
Rental dive gear is available from MadisonScuba at our special weekly rate or the resort. By renting from MadisonScuba, you will know exactly what you will be getting, that it is well maintained, and that it fits. Plus – no weight belts.
There will be several instructors on this trip, so let us know if you want to earn your Boat, Deep, and/or Night and Limited Viz Specialties. Completion of the academic portion(s) at the shop before we leave gives you more in-water time to complete your two dives (three for Deep more than 60’) in Guanaja.
For those looking to explore the island, arrangements can be made for birdwatching, kayaking, hiking to waterfalls, fishing or island tours.
The fine points
This trip is limited to 12 people. MadisonScuba takes small groups on our dive trips to make the trip more personable and to give people the opportunity to get to know each other. We will have a pre-trip and post-trip get-together.
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. Contact Tilly or Wes for trip insurance options. It is also strongly recommended that all divers have diver medical insurance.
If you’re ready to commit to an awesome dive vacation, mail or drop off your deposit of $500 per person at the shop to reserve your place. If you pay by VISA or MasterCard, please add 3%. Your balance is due June 1. Any cancellations are subject to loss of deposit and other fees.
