spooky channel

The spooky channel will help you experience eerie things underwater. The underwater crevasse and dim light make it a perfect spot for a spooky corner. The depth of the channel is close to 10-storey, but the things start getting into you when you hit the 60 ft margin below the water.

The dive starts at Sandy Bay known for its murky lagoon. The activities that you can enjoy on this site include snorkelling, first dive, marine biology, night dive, and this site is also best suited for underwater photography. Once you go for diving you will definitely come across lobsters, octopus, groupers, shrimps, and rays.

This place is a better boat dive compared to the shore dive. The underwater currents are a thing of concern in the spooky channel as the out current has the capability to drive you out to the sea from underwater.

This place is worth the dive because of its outstanding marine life with the gorgeous reef. The place is a hidden treasure as it has the ability to surprise you every time you dive in. Though it is a channel, still it gives you a feel of cavern diving. Before going for the dive, it is advisable that you attend the orientation provided at the dive shop. It will help with important tips on how to deal with the underwater current. This dive site is said to have strong current underwater.

You will also enjoy the company of coral heads that are only 12 ft. wide at the surface, but on the top, it is about 50 ft. wide. Snorkeling is also a good option to spend the whole day in and surround the channel. But if you are thinking of diving in deep, then it is best to consult the dive masters as they will be in a better position to guide you about the best conditions for the dive.

The width of the site is 15 meters and its depth is 30 meters. People who are going for snorkelling will come across several parrotfish in the channel itself. The outer reef is house to all kinds of marine life that is commonly seen on the north shore of Roatan. Generally, the inner reef is being used for snorkelling.

The expert divers have repeatedly warned of the inner currents because at times it is really bad. The main chamber stands steady at 95 feet where the divers can swim through the pillars and explore things on their own. These pillars will lead your way out without any complications.

The spooky nature of the channel is due to the fact that the light slowly gets dimmer as you dive in and the walls of the reef start getting closer. Towards the mouth of this channel, you will find amazing marine scenery that is in its best form and somehow even better than the fish life.

The dive can be enjoyed the most if you are aware of the right times for the dive. Even night dive will give you a perfect picture of the marine life.
