Roatan Divers West End has been an enthusiastic member of Go Blue Bay Islands for the last three years. We love the passion that Roatan’s Go Blue representative, Manlio, has for the Bay Islands and for the betterment of the community and environment. So when we started Roatan Divers Sandy Bay, we of course had to invite Manlio in for a visit so that we could join the Go Blue movement up there, too!

As you guys know by now, Roatan Divers joined Go Blue Central America Geotourism recently, and completed our first environmental assessment last month. We discussed the things we were doing well on environmentally and things that could be improved on, and after the assessment we decided to grab the bull by the horns and implement what we could as soon as possible (before the results even came out!). We have our next assessment coming up in a week, and we're excited to show you some of the changes we've already implemented and to learn more ways that we can promote responsible tourism on Roatan.
