This is a great wreck dive. We were able to do a twin thru of the interior, which was awesome! We had an eagle ray swim by just as we were descending onto the wreck and I was able to get a great pic. See pic below.

This wreck is spread out over a large area. Not safe for swimming into the wreck, there is nice reef near the wreck to check out. One of two wreck dives that we visited during our week at Anthony's Key Resort.

This is a great wreck dive for beginners as there is plenty of area to explore at a moderate depth. The current can be fast moving at times but you seldom stay at the wreck the whole dive as there is a nice reef to explore close by.

This was my second time diving the wreck and I enjoyed it again. I recommend going early as it can be busy and not all divers are hospitable. This time I had groups of divers pushing past me, kicking their fins in my face, shining the flashlights in my eyes. There is no excuse for such behaviour as it is... More

Did deep water for advanced at this site mind blowing with 6 dives under my belt we hit 105 feet and played for a few minutes. Pretty busy spot tho. But it's Roatan doesn't get a whole lot better from what I here

Very big ship and a huge coral wall on the way down. The floor is around 105'. Watch your air as you can watch grouper, garden eel, green moray eel, etc forever. Visibility was about 80' when went but still nice. Water temp great as always! KENT at Mayan Divers makes it all better!

Easy wreck dive with several swim throughs into wheel house, cargo areas, etc. Easy to linger too long so watch your bottom time! Lots of Garden Eels at 110 feet on the sandy bottom. Ship was sunk intentionally and then was further "wrecked" by a passing storm. We went with Anthony's Key Dive Operation - Top Notch!

This is one of those wreck dives you have to do when in Roatan. Large ship, lots of interesting marine life. Saw Garden eels, 5 foot Grouper, shrimp, and more.

Easily my favorite wreck off Roatan. 100+ ft sitting on a sandy bottom in the middle of a field of garden eels sits El Aquila. There is one black grouper that always hangs out with me on this dive.
