WHERE IS ROATAN: The Bay Islands of Honduras are nestled in the southwest corner of the Caribbean, about 30 miles north of Honduras. The outstanding coral reef system is part of the second largest barrier reef in the world which includes the islands of Roatan, Utila and Cayo Cochinos.

ROATAN AGGRESSOR INCLUDES: All staterooms are air-conditioned and fitted with private bathrooms and showers. Breakfast (cooked to order), buffet lunch and an elegant meal at dinner with tableside service are served in addition to fresh mid- morning and mid- afternoon snacks. Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are complimentary while onboard. The yacht is equipped with 110 volt/USB outlets and hairdryers in each stateroom. Linens are changed mid-week and fresh towels are placed in each stateroom as needed. Filled tanks, weights and weight belts are included.

Guests aboard the ROATAN AGGRESSOR™ will experience the best diving in the Bay Islands of Honduras which is both easy and exciting.  The Bay Islands are world-renowned for their sheer walls, mystical wrecks, massive barrel sponges and captivating macro critters. These waters are also home to larger marine species, such as Whale Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Bottlenose Dolphin. The region has fantastic critter diving with subjects like Electric Rays, Longsnout Seahorses, ferocious looking Spoon-nose Eels, Rough Box Crabs, Yellowheaded Jawfish, Sailfin Blennies and even Southern Stargazers.

Information regarding Jr. Divers:

Parent or Guardian will be solely responsible for Jr. Diver on board and off board and must accompany Jr. Divers on all dives.  We highly recommend diver insurance for both Parent/Guardian and Jr. Divers.

A PADI Jr. Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 40ft/12M. (IMPORTANT: This may limit joining most of the dives for the guided dive trips because they will be deeper than 40ft/12M)

A 12 to 14-year-old Jr. Open Water Diver is qualified to dive to 60ft/12M only when accompanied by a certified diver of legal age. Your certification automatically upgrades on your 15th birthday at which time you can apply to PADI for an adult certification card.

The Jr. Advanced Open Water course extends your depth qualification to 70Ft/21M for ages 12 -14.

Age 15 qualifies for adult certification card.
