Day By Day Itinerary
June 18th: Please book your flights to arrive on this day in Roatan. You will be met at the airport by resort staff and transported by shuttle directly to the resort. There, a small welcome reception and drinks await you after which you can settle into your rooms and both the Zen and AKR staff can help you with any last minute travel or dive needs.
June 19th: Our day starts at 8:30 am with a dive safety briefing and a short checkout dive as applicable, followed by a three tank dive day. The boat almost always comes back to shore between each dive and lunch is served between dives two and three at the shore-side restaurant. Diving usually ends relatively early so you have time to sneak in another shore dive, or enjoy the resort pool, bar, or spa.
June 20th: Another 3 tank dive day but today after dive 2 we will be taken to Maya Key for a special island lunch. We will hit our dive 3 on the way back to the resort where we have the rest of the afternoon for relaxation.
June 21st: Another 3 tank dive day, OR a shark dive early in the morning instead of dives 1 & 2. The shark dive is conditions dependent and may happen on any day of the trip that is most suitable for safe and comfortable conditions since the site is a bit further from shore than the ones we typically travel to. And all of this topped off by a night dive!
June 22nd: More diving (you came for that right?) Today’s three tank dive sees us finish on the key instead of the usual shoreside restaurant for a fun Island Fiesta BBQ!
June 23rd: One last full day of diving (3 tanks + unlimited shore diving) and one last night dive!
June 24th: Last dive day! One morning dive and then the rest of the day is yours to spend relaxing by the pool, snorkeling or maybe even indulging in a spa treatment! During the day, we’ll make our way over to the on site clinic for a pre-departure covid test (bring your passports and cash).
June 25th: Check-out day – after breakfast, the resort will ferry you and your luggage back to the airport in time for your flight home. This is the time to cash out your tabs, tip the dive and resort staff, and start planning the vacation from the vacation that you’ll surely need!
