Stephanie, our Senior Manger of Product Design and Development, went on a 3 week long scuba diving adventure to Roatan, Honduras. The water and scenery looks breathtaking, I felt like I was on a beach after seeing all of her photos. See what Stephanie did on her vacation to Honduras!
“My husband & I recently visited Roatan, one of the 3 Bay Islands of Honduras. We heard about the island when we became certified scuba divers and fell in love with the sport. Roatan is an easy island to access and lies on the southern edge of the 2nd largest coral reef in the world (the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef). The island is surrounded by a coral reef with hundreds of dive sites. A lot of the dive sites were so close to the shore that it took just a short boat ride out to the edge of the reef. We saw some amazing species of fish. Huge grouper that were about 4 feet long, eels, sea turtles and a 7-8 foot nurse shark. ”
“This is a photo of the southwestern end of the island, a town named West Bay. West Bay is home to a lot of the resorts and restaurants on the island, and is the most popular destination for the cruise ships that dock on the island. The beach and water in West Bay was by far the most beautiful on the island. ”
“The island has a beautiful topography covered with lush forests, mangroves, and a mountain ridge that runs down the center of the 37 mile-long island. Our last day on the island was one of the best. Two of our new friends, from the island, gave us the grand tour. They drove us on a scenic tour of the entire island telling us about the history of the island along the way. We visited some beautiful areas, picked fresh mango, ate fruit off of trees and had a lot of laughs. We saw a small fishing towns as we passed through. The rest of the island is all mangroves and can only be reached by boat. This was the best way to end our trip!”
