Location: ROATAN "MARCH MADNESS" March 19-26, 2022 TURTLES & EELS & RAYS & MORE
Dates: Mar 19-26, 2022  PLUS the possibility of the week after Mar 16- Apr 2, 2022 OR 3-4 days prior to the trip and/or after the trip. (Since extra days eliminates the ability to rent a room we are limited to the number of rooms that can arrive early or stay late and the reservation must be for 3-4 days if staying at the same hotel for your extra days. EMAIL Trips@SingleDivers.com for help)
Resort: Las Rocas Resort & Dive Center
Dive operator: Wet and Wild Divers
Water Temp: low 80's
Air Temp: 80 - 86F
Current: Mild
Visibility: 60 to 90 feet
Experience Level: Novice to Moderate depending on the sites

Known For:  Roatan’s spectacular dive and snorkel sites lie along the largest barrier reef system in this hemisphere.

Las Rocas is a small, intimate resort nestled into the soft white sands of West Bay, Roatan’s most beautiful beach. Our unique location puts Roatan Marine Park and all of its treasures literally just steps from your door, yet secluded from the usual beach noise and traffic. Everything you need for a perfect Roatan vacation is right here.




Initially we planned to do 2 weeks to maximize the are since it is $750 to $1100 depending on where you are coming from and which week you choose.


  1. Mar 19-26, 2022 will be the PRIMARY WEEK. We have a limited number of rooms but the most rooms for this week and air is fairly reasonable.
  2. We can offer the week after Mar 26 - Apr 2 as an additional week BUT WE CAN'T OFFER the earlier week we had hoped to offer. Mar 26-Apr 2 has much better air from most places.

What if I need extra nights?

  1. We have an Extremely limited number of rooms avail for early arrivals or late departures. This is extremely high season and so rooms must be rented for a min of 3-4 days before or after the trip if you do not do Sat to Sat. I have a very small number of these avail on a first come first served basis BUT ALL ARE DOUBLE OCCUPANCY ONLY TO MAXIMIZE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WE CAN HELP.
  2. We are close enough to other resorts that if you can not get one of our 'extra rooms' then you can try elsewhere.
  3. NOTE: AS WE OPEN THIS TRIP WE WILL BE FIGURING OUT WHO IS SERIOUSLY GOING AND WHO WOULD WANT 1 or 2 weeks and/or would want the main week plus 3-4 days extra to cut airfare?
  4. Hotel rooms will be expensive at our resort for the extra nights ...basically the pkg price / number of nights to over $200 per extra nite. (I can not hold rooms if we won't use them so must drop them very soon so need your help to figure out what we are doing or not doing
  5. We have an extremely limited number of single/private rooms available for the trip regardless of the week(s) chosen. You must sign up early to get them as they will go fast.


 SO PLEASE HELP US KNOW WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO DO via trips@singledivers.com?

Travel & Transfer Details:
Getting to Roatan is very easy thanks to the Roatan international airport, named Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport that has regular scheduled service from Houston, Atlanta, Miami and New York. Primary routings are MIA to RTB on AA or DFW to RTB on AA or IAH to RTB on United Airlines


Please check online or with your travel agent for pricing and schedule information. After you make your reservation, please include your flight arrival/departure information in the booking template. Airport pickup and transfer service is arranged based on this. If you would like SingleDivers.com to research and/or book your airfare ticket for you, we will be happy to do so for a $30 research & booking fee.

Please note that A U.S. passport valid for at least 3-months from the date of entry is required to enter Honduras. Though not required by law, some travelers have reported difficulty departing Honduras using a passport with less than three months of validity beyond the date of departure. A visa is not required, but tourists must provide evidence of return or onward travel. U.S. citizens are encouraged to carry a photocopy of their U.S. passports with them at all times, so that if questioned by local officials proof of identity and U.S. citizenship are readily available. For other global citizens, please review Honduras visa requirements posted on the Internet.

If you miss any Flights to (RTB) Roatan you MAY be able to catch a flight the next day but MANY run full and ONLY ONCE A WEEK so you may have to wait several days if not a week to get to the island! If you choose to self-insure that is fine but you also choose to accept all losses accordingly as SD.com nor any vendors will be responsible for losses due to non-insurance.

We recommend:
Dive Assure please reference SingleDivers.com via the drop down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS.
Click here for Dive Assure for either a 'one time' policy OR ! an annual policy that is either BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage OR JUST TRIP INSURANCE. They offer annual plans as well as one time policies. They are not the cheapest but they are the most hassle free when filing a claim.



Diving & Itinerary:
Our weekly itinerary will consist of 5 days of 3 tank dives starting on Sunday and ending on Thursday. We will also schedule a FREE BOAT night dive for those interested as well as other diving "must see's" such as the shark dive, other special diving islands etc. Stay tuned for more details!

Diving in Roatan offers something for all skill levels with 60-90 ft of vis, mild currents, walls and water temps in the low to mid 80's this time of year.

While OUR personal Roatan Single's Week Experience may vary due to weather and conditions, the outline below will give you a good feel for the exciting week in store for us! KEEP CHECKING BACK AS MANY ACTIVITIES ARE STILL BEING LINED UP FOR THESE TWO AMAZING WEEKS OF FUN IN THE SUN AND CRITTERS IN THE SEA!!!

Experience Required & Training/Workshops:

  • Minimum Certification / Experience: Roatan diving is open to ALL levels of certification OW and up, at any experience level. Great for beginners and old pros alike!
  • Certification in Paradise - Ask us about different certifications available on this trip. Its always nice to get certified in Paradise. Let us help you do this! Email TRIPS@SINGLEDIVERS.COM to request more information.
  • Advanced Open Water - includes several 'advanced dives' such as navigation, night, and deep plus several choices of your own including photography, peak buoyancy, etc. Email TRIPS@SINGLEDIVERS.COM to request more information.
  • Nitrox - includes book work, classroom instruction and sometimes the manual. Some classes include the use of a nitrox compatible computer and the gas itself. Some classes will give you a reduced rental rate for the computer and use of the gas if you take the class during the trip. Email TRIPS@SINGLEDIVERS.COM to request more information.
  • Solo Certification - This cert will enable you to dive independently of a human dive buddy by training you to dive with a mechanical dive buddy aka a pony bottle or stage bottle. - Ask about the 'enhanced solo skills' where the instructor will challenge you with several additional skills that will complement your solo cert skills enabling you to be even MORE independent and self sufficient in the water. Email TRIPS@SINGLEDIVERS.COM to request more information.

PRICES: Prices for classes in Paradise are always more expensive than doing them at home. Sometimes SingleDivers.com has instructors on our trips who are happy to teach AND usually offer a member discount to anyone interested in taking a class. The more that take a class the more feasible a discount becomes.
Insurance, Documentation & T&C's:
Trip Insurance is STRONGLY SUGGESTED and/ is NOT required on this trip! TRIP insurance is RELATIVELY inexpensive. Even if you have insurance that you think covers your tripit is CHEAP (approx $100-$200) to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are covered for your investment in your dive trip. If you opt to not get trip insurance you are responsible for all losses related to your trip including not going for any reason. If diving a LIVEABOARD please consider the liveaboard rider offer by DiveAssure.com.

PRO TIP: The two primary suppliers of dive insurance DiveAssure.com and DAN are inexpensive enough to carry both. This way you will have the best coverage internationally, the best coverage domestically, primary insurance, secondary insurance and if a claim is denied on one policy you can submit it on the other. No matter what happens...YOU ARE COVERED!!! ... PRICELESS!!!

We recommend:

Dive Assure: for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy for BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage! Please use THIS LINK and/or reference SingleDivers.com via the drop-down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. (If you can not find the drop down, do not reference anyone and email info@singledivers.com your policy info and we will do it for you via our Dive Assure company representative.

All SingleDivers.com trips require necessary documentation to facilitate booking your trip and/or making it a better experience for you. Once you complete your documents online our automated system will take the information from your last trip with us and fill out your new trip forms for you. You then add any missing information and/or change anything that is no longer current. You will find the forms you need to complete under MY TRIPS which you will find under TRIPS in the main menu across the top of the site. Since each trip requires a unique set of docs, please choose the correct trip from your "My Trips" drop down and then complete the forms required for that trip. Some trips will also ask you to complete the resort or liveaboard's forms as well.

The AIR AUTHORIZATION FORM is only required when you are having SingleDivers.com book air for you but this includes air that is part of the trip pkg price.

Not all of our forms are online as they are either infrequently used or being phased out. If you need a form that is not in our online directory, send an email to trips@singledivers.com  and ask for the form you need.

All SingleDivers.com trips require:

  • You complete the necessary documentation as referenced above for each trip you sign up to take with us.

NOTE THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO AIRFARE UNLESS SIGNING UP WITHIN 45 DAYS OF DEPARTURE.  *Remember the Forms can be edited at any time up to 30 days prior to departure with updates such as insurance purchase/renewal, change of address, even preferences for rooming and diving so there is no reason to delay your initial Forms submissions.  This enables us to meet the reporting deadlines imposed by our suppliers.
  • SingleDivers.com LLC reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
  • You read all the trip details before booking and commit to being responsible for post trip booking follow up by use of our TRIP PM, FORUM DISCUSSIONS  and in some cases emails. You commit to ask us how to use these tools if uncertain and commit to keeping your premier membership dues current and email on file current so we can contact you. Our tools require your dues and email to be current to work. Any delays/expenses/issues due to lack of trip information will be borne by the trip goer and NOT SingleDivers.com as we regularly and routinely use these tools to communicate extensively with you. If you are not hearing from us it means you are not using the tools we have in place. Email trips@singledivers.com for help.
  • You have read the EXPERIENCE REQUIRED & TRAINING/WORKSHOPS information in the online trip details to ensure that you are able to safely and comfortably meet the requirements of the trip. Please contact to further discuss any questions you have about attending one of our trips. We often accept students who would not otherwise meet the stated trip requirements because they are taking a class that will then enable them to meet the trip specifications and they will be diving with an instructor or dive master during the dives.
  • We require Dive Insurance for all dives and trips as stated above and we STRONGLY recommend trip insurance for all dives and trips but in some cases require it due to vendor specific mandates. Please see the online trip details under INSURANCE to see if the trip has optional or mandatory trip insurance requirements.
