Backscatter Roatan Expedition: January 11-18 2014

Join Backscatter CEO Jim Decker as he takes you to the beautiful reefs of Honduras, at the CoCo View Resort on Roatan January 11-18th, 2014. We'll enjoy a week of diving, photo instruction, and fun as we take advantage of CoCo View's state of the art dive operation and exceptional house reef.

CoCo View Resort is on one of the most respected snorkeling and diving destinations in the Caribbean and is the most returned to dive resort in the world.

Situated on Roatan's south shore, CoCo View Resort is perched on the edge of the coral reef and has developed a reputation for spectacular and convenient diving. Ride a dive boat to one of Roatan's best dive sites or explore the pristine coral walls and 140' wreck in their famous "Front Yard" - offering exceptional and unlimited shore diving and snorkeling , only a few fin kicks from the resort.

The house reef features an easily accesible wreck, perfect for exploring in the afternoon.

You'll be more than comfortable in one of the resort's air-conditioned oceanfront rooms or over-the-water bungalows or cabanas. Pull up a hammock on your private deck at the edge of Roatan's spectacular underwater realm and enjoy the tropical sun and cooling sea breezes as you relax and unwind.

In the evenings, we'll compare notes on underwater photographic and video techniques through informal critiques. Jim will be available for any gear support questions throughout the trip. Add on a shark dive for even greater excitement. This is an amazing learning opportunity, at an affordable price!

In addition to regular afternoon and night dives, we'll also have on hand Nightsea equipment for fluorescent diving. This is a great chance to try out this exciting twist on night diving, as it will allow you to photograph familiar subjects in a completely different way.
