Picture of live coral on Roatan Island.

The dive locations listed below may have multiple site names.  A lot of the naming convention has to do with which resort is closest to the location.  Regardless of the name, a tourist diver will have no problems finding lots of different dive sites and different diving conditions.  The night dive locations listed below are popular sites since they are close to major resorts.  Most of the dive sites are marked with mooring buoys and are used on a "scheduled" basis to avoid several boats arriving on the site at the same time.  There are more dive sites than dive boats on the island and you will not find crowding at the sites.  See the description of the topology of the surrounding barrier reef on Roatan.
