Since the first moment I have dived in Roatan, this wreck has been my favourite dive site. “El Aguila” means eagle in Spanish and it is home to a very large amount of sea life.

This 65m long wreck is unique in its complexity! I loved the pass-throughs and the coral formations that were present all over it. Also, the black corals, gorgonians, and sponges that inhabited the colourful reef were amazing. Some beautiful resident green moray eels lived inside some of the holes of the ship. The sandy paths around the big cargo ship were full of garden eels that were moving sinuously.

What I enjoyed the most about this place were the large groups of groupers that inhibited the area around the wreck. It was very nice to do the safety stop completely surrounded by the company of these groupers! Occasionally some spotted eagle rays were passing by creating a unique atmosphere!
