Clarks Cay Honduras

We’ve planned a trip to Guanaja, Honduras Clarks Cay for July 9-16, 2022.  

Space is very limited, we’re renting a whole island which accommodates 18 divers, we will be the only people there. It’s all inclusive with three dives a day, we can add a fourth if we want for $40. 
The island is beautiful with a lazy river, the cabanas are spread out and the island is ten acres in size.I’m including the website and a map of the island, it really is special and unique, I just came back from the sister island, Dunbar Rock, had a great time.

To get there you fly to Roatan then a ferry $95 return small plane around $195 or you can charter a plane, it will carry three people and your gear.

Price Deluxe oceanfront $1995 for double diver each.One bed Cabana $1895 with three share each or double diver $2480 each this has a living room and I think a kitchen.Standard Cabana $1895 each for double diver.Two bed Cabana $2480 each for four people.These are all quotes for sharing a room, the price will dramatically go up if you be a single and don’t want to share.All do not include 19% tax.$10 park fee. Nitrox is $120 if payed in advance.I have a lot of interest in this trip, as you can imagine, at the moment if you are fully vaccinated you just need to show proof and you can enter, they will do the out going PCR test for us at the hotel.$200 non refundable deposit secures your spot, if something really goes wrong insurance is your friend and they will let us rebook no problem.Flights are around $1000.Don’t hesitate to ask any questions that may arise.

Update as of March 18 – There are currently 7 spots left.
