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.

Great place to get in a deep dive with great viz, warm waters, and eel gardens. Highly suggest visiting this site when in Honduras.

Great viz, nice wreck with few good swim through. Eel garden, a few morays and tons of huge groupers. And a nearby reef for the second half of the dive.

Dive starts deep along the flanks of the ship. You continue across the decks, then up a coral encrusted canyon to the extraction point. Short dive, but what do you expect for 100+ feet?
