Dive Boat Fleet

Modern, Comfortable, and Safe Roatan Dive Boats

As a diver AKR, you'll appreciate the comfort and convenience of diving on our modern fleet of seven Pro 42' Custom Dive Boats, two Newton 46' Dive Specials, and four Pro 48' Custom Dive Boats. Along with a few fellow divers, you'll be whisked away to 35 different dive sites just 5 to 30 minutes away. Unrivaled in the Caribbean region, our fleet is comfortable, safe, and convenient!

Pro 42' Custom Dive Boats

With 44 customized tank racks and a walk-through transom, the Pro 42s can accommodate 15 divers and two crew members. The Pro 42s have a deep-V in the front and are fast, sea-worthy, and versatile. They can tackle rough seas and, at the same time, reach remote shallow reefs. Each boat has dry storage, a freshwater rinse tank for cameras, a water cooler, and a covered area.

Pro 48' Custom Dive Boats

The Pro 48s can comfortably accommodate 24 divers and two crew members. The Pro 48s have 64 customized tank racks, a walk-through transom, and opening steps to the bow. An additional 100 square feet on the fly-bridge and added dry storage compartments create plenty of space to gear up and walk around the boat. Each boat has a freshwater rinse tank for cameras, a water cooler, and a covered area.
