Ringing in the New Year in Roatan

We can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than on a dive trip.  It’s become a Rec Diving tradition and it never disappoints!  We had a week of exploring a super healthy reef with critters galore, and special encounters with sharks and dolphins.  It was a week of lots of laughs and adventures with two boat loads of awesome divers and snorkelers.  We had the pleasure of being part of so much fun and success as our dive buddies improved buoyancy control, advanced diver ratings and celebrated individual diving “firsts”.  Woohoo!  Check out a few of the trip pics below.  And don’t be left out next year when we head to Cayman Brac to dive and celebrate again!
