FEATURED DESTINATION: ROATAN
If you’re looking for a quick and easy getaway, with something for the whole family, look no further than the island escape of Roatan. Once home to over 5,000 known pirates, Roatan is situated just off the coast of Honduras. True pirate enthusiasts might find some sunken bounty in the world-famous wrecks.
 
Here are a few things divers enjoy about this easy escape:

  • Kid friendly—Various resorts offer kids programs to keep the young ones entertained while parents enjoy the diving.
 
  • Shark dives—a popular highlight of a trip to Roatan is one of their popular shark dives. If this is a bucket list item for you, this is a great place to check it off.
 
  • Friendly people—Divers come home raving about the hospitality of Roatan. With a strong focus on tourism on the island, locals are well accustomed to taking care of guests during their stay on the island.
 
  • Mellow diving—with very little current and consistently good visibility, this is a great place for new divers to wet their fins with easy to navigate conditions.
 
If Roatan is on your bucket list, call our travel specialists at 303-220-8282 for more information. Or join One World Dive & Travel for a swashbuckling adventure aboard the Roatan Aggressor in 2021!
TRAVEL TIP OF THE MONTH
Checking out of a hotel or resort is one of the most likely times to lose something. Have a routine for checking out and give yourself plenty of time. Make sure to double check in bathrooms, under beds, between sheets, and through closets and drawers.

Rather have an instructor help evaluate your skills to make sure you're actually doing it correctly? Then our Scuba Refreshers are the choice for you!

SCUBA REFRESHERS ~ If it’s been longer than 2 years since your last dive, then you’ll need a SCUBA REFRESHER. In this four hour class, instructors will share practical tips from their personal experience of diving and jump in the water with you to make sure you are comfortable setting up your gear, controlling your buoyancy and review your emergency skills. The class is offered three times each month, and is often required by a resort if you haven't been diving in a year. If you have been out of the water for longer than 10 years, you will need to schedule this class privately.
