The Roatan Marine Park (RMP) was established as a grass-roots conservation initiative in 1988 and has grown to become one of the best examples of a marine protected area in the Caribbean. Restrictions placed on the activities allowed within the RMP have facilitated recovery of previously damaged fish populations, and high abundances of a wide variety of fish with large biomass are now frequently encountered. Students will stay at Half Moon Bay Resort in air-conditioned dorm rooms of 6-12 people, which is an approximately 10 minute walk from the centre of West End; a sleepy tourist town where there are opportunities to purchase souvenirs and ice creams! All dive, snorkelling and classroom activities happen on site at Half Moon Bay Resort, and there is a fantastic swimming area just in front of the restaurant.
