(7)
Bay Islands Beach Resort is home of the famous Spooky Channel. The channel offers three unique shore diving opportunities: the inside reef for snorkelers to view the large coral heads and friendly parrot fish; the channel itself, which is a grand-canyon-like dive of 15 meters wide and 30 meters deep; and the outer reef that houses all the expected life of Roatan's North shore. Along the short stretch of road between Half Moon Bay and Sandy Bay on the Northwest side of the island.

Sandy Bay beach is the closest entry for the dive through the Little Channel. The reef wall is about 300 meters beyond the beach. This should be considered an advanced dive due to the distance of the kick-out. Take the main road North out of Coxen Hole to cross the island. As soon as you see the ocean again, you are at Sandy Bay!

Sunny Side B&B is another access point to the Spooky Channel. Although not a full service dive resort operation, it is the closest dock to the channel, with a spectacular beach for the non-divers in your group. Don't show up unannounced at this location; diving is generally for the guests of the B&B only. Along the short stretch of road between Half Moon Bay and Sandy Bay on the Northwest side of the island.

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.
