I met my Captain, Justin and then along with two others took a 4-seater to Roatan. The whole journey was about 15 minutes and cost $90 but I had a great time and as the plane took off over the ocean I saw a school of maybe 30 dolphins beneath me.

We walked on the beach that connects the West Bay to the West End... which we weren't maybe supposed to do, but it was daylight, and we were in a group, and it ...
... my only problem was using up too much air. Despite feeling pretty chilled, I didn't quite get the hang of the rhythm and had to swap tanks with one of the assistants.
The next day, we actually did some real dives off the reef at 14m, we did the same drills as the day before, which went very smoothly for the whole group, but we got to actually dive around and see some amazing marine life. We saw a box fish (it genuinely ...
