Roatan Underwater Photography Shootout
DIVE, DIVE, DIVE! SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT!
If you are a scuba diver, snorkeler, kayaker, stand up paddleboarder, photographer, videographer or nature enthusiast, this trip was made for you! Whether you are shooting with a GoPro or all-in-one up to a mirrorless or full DSLR with strobes and underwater housing, this trip offers something for you, with an incredible amount of convenience!
Situated on Roatan’s south shore, Coco View Resort is perched on the edge of the world’s second largest coral reef. The resort is tucked behind extensive shallow coral formations and protected by a barrier reef wall, which plunges to a depth of 110 feet. Coco View’s house reef is always enjoyable to explore due to the many creatures who make the reef their home.
If you’re looking to explore a sunken wreck, the Prince Albert and DC3 airplane are a short swim out from the resort. With so much to enjoy right at the house reef, it’s no wonder that unlimited shore diving is popular 24 hours a day. This location is a paradise for snorkelers as well.
Photographers, videographers and guests will have access to 5 clinics to improve your underwater captures. Take your diving and photography to the next level with quick clinics in between your dives. Your photography clinics will be taught by National Geographic TV, BBC Television, Discovery Channel, Sci-Fi Channel, Aggressor/Dancer Fleet photographer, videographer, and drone pilot Tim Blanton. * Private, tailored sessions are available for additional costs.
