Roatan and its world-renowned scuba diving attracted more than a million visitors last year. As far as Roatan resorts go, Turquoise Bay is the only dive resort in this lush and remote area of the island providing scuba divers and snorkelers with the opportunity to dive and snorkel uncrowded, pristine sites. The North side of Roatan offers scuba divers and snorkelers the unique opportunity to experience the largest variety of reef topography on the island. Roatan, in the Bay Islands of Honduras, is surrounded by the world’s second largest barrier reef that is one of the healthiest in the Caribbean due to the Roatan Marine Park and the local dive community encouraging conservative diving practices. Explore sloping plateaus perfect for spotting macro life, sheer walls with large soft corals and barrel sponges, wreck dives abundant with life, crevices, trenches, overhangs and cavern systems such as our two most popular dive sites Underground and Dolphin’s Den.
All of our scuba diving lessons and instructors are PADI qualified for your peace of mind.
Roatan’s water temperature ranges from 78 – 84 F with visibility consistent between 60-100 feet
Our on-site Dive Center is operated by Subway Watersports. They are an elite PADI 5 Star Instructor Development and National Geographic Dive Center. Subway Watersports opened for business in April 2001 and soon became well known for its quality and personal service. Our location at Turquoise Bay opened in March 2006. We offer valet diving, take out small groups of 6-12 divers per boat and a PADI Divemaster guides all dives. Experienced Scuba Instructors offer PADI scuba diving lessons from beginner to Instructor in private classes. In addition to diving we offer snorkel trips, fishing and day trips to the neighboring Bay Islands.

Subway Watersports is open 7 days a week. Our dive and snorkel boats leave daily at 8:45 am, 10:45 am and 2 pm. We offer one night boat dive per week (more on request). We scuba dive and snorkel mainly on the north shore of Roatan in the area between Sandy Bay and Punta Gorda. Our dive sites are close by so we come back to the dive shop for our surface intervals. When we go to some of the further dive sites we do a two tank dive in the morning and one tank in the afternoon. We are the only dive operator diving on this part of Roatan which means you will not see other scuba divers during your dive and have private unspoiled dive sites.
All-Inclusive dive packages include three boat dives per day. Should the sea conditions not allow us to dive on the Roatan North shore we will take our guests by bus to an alternate location on the South side of Roatan. When diving on the South side we are able to do two boat dives per day instead of three. This scenario may happen between December and March because of strong Northerly wind
