A Roatan flash back!

Photography by Roatan Ocean Adventures

When I saw this picture of the squid it gave me a Roatan flash back! One of the things I love about Roatan is having an aquarium at my doorstep. I remember the first time I went snorkeling in Half Moon Bay Beach, West End. My girlfriend and I each bought a mask and snorkel and jumped in not really knowing what to expect. Just a few feet in and we were in awe. Big and small fish with bright, colorful stripes and polka dots and all kinds of patterns swimming along weaving in and out of this amazing Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Coral of all different shapes and colors. We had discovered a whole new world! At one point I came face to face with a small school of squid and we had a moment. We looked at each other and then somehow they all slowly turned with the same movement without taking their eyes off of me.
So shortly afterwards I started the open water dive course and then the advanced dive course and then rescue diving. I dove every chance I got, before work, after work or on my lunch break. When you ask most divers which dive site here on Roatan is their favorite many will claim they don’t have a favorite site, that every time is a new and unique experience. Well even though they do have a point, I do have two favorite dive sites: Mary’s Place and Spooky Channel. I don’t want to spoil your experience if you are planning to dive in Roatan so I won’t explain why I love these two sites but if you have a chance to check them out, I highly recommend them. And if you have not yet discovered the coral reef in Roatan through snorkeling or diving, what are you waiting for?! There is a whole new world waiting for you to see and explore the wonders of Roatan!
