No Crowds – Best Scuba Diving Experience
Located within the largest coral reef in the eastern hemisphere, the Bay Island of Roatan is consistently rated as a top Caribbean dive destination. Because of the island’s reputation as a diving hot spot, there are many diving opportunities — and almost as many dive resorts. Unfortunately many visitors to Roatan wind up in the tourist-oriented West End of the island and never learn of the relatively untouched beauty available while staying and diving at Mango Creek Lodge.
When you dive with Mango Creek, you avoid the crowds. There are at least 12 dive sites all within minutes of our lodge, with seldom another lodge using them.
Watch the marine life without worrying about other divers knocking your dive mask off your face. It is seldom we have more than four divers diving at Mango Creek, providing you the best opportunity of seeing the marine life all around without interference.
Roatan Island’s dive sites include spectacular walls, holes, and crevices that dot the magnificent reef system just minutes away from our dock. Hundreds of Caribbean fish and other water creatures populate our local waters: parrot fish, damselfish, tangs, puffers, jacks, rays, sharks, lobsters, and many more.
A day of SCUBA diving at Mango Creek
Your day starts off with a great homemade breakfast in the restaurant at Mango Creek Lodge. Then you have time to gear up and grab a water bottle before your day begins on the water.
A typical dive day includes two morning dives, followed by hearty lunch at the lodge and then an optional afternoon dive. If you wish you can exchange a day dive for a night dive. Just let the Dive Master know and he will be happy to accommodate your wants and needs for diving.
Your diving stay
Starting on the afternoon of your arrival, our dive guides work with you to tailor dives to your desires and experience level. If you want reef dive, wall dives, and small wreck dives all during the week, no problem. Just let us know.
In addition to diving, as you’re a guest of Mango Creek Lodge, throughout the week you have the freedom to relax around the grounds. Feel free take out a kayak, sailboat, or go snorkeling straight from your cabana’s deck.
It’s all part of the world class relaxing for which Mango Creek Lodge is famous.
Your dive safety is the highest priority at Mango Creek Lodge. During your dive, a qualified dive master or instructor is in the water with you at all times. We use the buddy system, conduct safety stops on every dive and include adequate intervals between dives. Our staff is trained in first aid and there is a local hyperbaric chamber.
