Lionfish are very much on the “green” list on Roatan, so the Roatan Marine Park has created a Bay Islands Lionfish Spearing License workshop to teach you more about the lionfish invasion and how to spear them in an environmentally conscious way.
Guys, it's getting hot right now. And still. And you know what that means...special trips to the seamounts of Cayos Cochinos will be getting underway again!
The seamounts of Cayos Cochinos are located 29 km/18 miles off the western point of Roatan and are a part of a series of underwater mountains that rise up between Roatan and Cayos Cochinos. None of the mounts break the surface, with the diveable mounts peaking between 21m/70ft and 12m/40 feet in depth. With all the currents moving through that area and the nutrient-rich water swelling up from the depths, the coral at the seamounts is healthy and vibrant, and you have the opportunity to see lots of different schools of fishing hanging out off the reef as they feed.
When the weather is right for it, we run special two-tank charter trips to the seamounts of Cayos Cochinos. We do two fabulous dives and spend our surface interval fishing and looking for whalesharks and dolphins. As the currents can be strong, it's important to be an experienced and comfortable diver certified to 30m/100ft to ensure that you get the most out of your experience. So check out our video of the seamounts and see if this trip sounds fun to you!
Please contact us for more information regarding these special two-tank trips, and let us help you experience the best of the Bay Islands!
