Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Front Porch

The Front Porch dive is one of the finest North shore dives, due to the proximity of Anthony's Key (intro photo) to the reef. You are just a short swim away from the reef's edge, with an easy dock-side entry and exit. Along the short stretch of road between Half Moon Bay and Sandy Bay on the Northwest side of the island.

There is limited parking close to the dive shop. Under Construction! Unfortunately, it is not a simple walk from your car to the shore dive. You must first be ferried over to the key, and then take your gear to the second dive shop at far end of the key. Although this shore dive is mostly for the key guests, die-hard shore divers can make arrangements with the dive staff. Walk toward the water, and you'll find the dive shop right there on the dock. Be sure to check with dive shop for complete orientation instructions.

We were guests at Anthony's Key last week and we had a wonderful time. I used this site for open water checkouts for a new diver. The reef conditions are fantastic but it's a long hike out. The water is about 1 foot deep for around 100 feet, then it quickly drops to 3 feet deep for another 100 feet but you can snorkel or surface scuba until you get to open water there. Anthony's Key specializes in boat diving and lodging but this site is open nearly every afternoon. The DC3 dive is in the open channel, this site is not. The DC3 dive has very limited visibility while this site has fantastic vis. If you're on Roatan do this site and stay at Anthony's Key.

A better option here would be to get permission from AKR to swim from the dive shop dock to the plane (DC3?) buoy, this is in the boat channel between Anthony and Bailey Keys so a dive flag is a must. This is used by AKR as a night dive a few times a week.
