Blue Channel Shallow and Deep Dive Sites Roatan
Blue Channel dive site is a great dive site in Roatan for snokelers and divers alike. There are shallow areas for snorkelers to explore for hours as well as the deeper sloping sand patch covered with coral patches for divers of all levels. A number of moray eels live around this area and are fun to observe under a rock or out for a swim. From the shallow buoy explore from the small opening as it wides out to a large cavern area. Be sure to look under ledges and around the coral for fireworms, large feather dusters and lobster. Some really cool crevices make for some long swim throughs about halfway through the dive on your left. Be careful as you choose these and follow your divemaster or instructors lead on which channels to enter. Good buoyancy control is needed to navigate these in a slow controlled manner to avoid scrapes with the coral. You can end the dive back at the shallow buoy or continue on to the deeper areas and to the wall. From the deep buoy explore the canyon and swim throughs and then make your way to the wall and drift dive along the top of the wall.
