Solitude, wrecks, reefs, and endless marine wildlife on the remote end of the tropical island of Roatan.

In the 17th century Port Royal on the far eastern end of Roatan was home to over 2000 pirates, 500 homes, and untold barrels of rum (and treasure). All that remains now is some rubble and ruins on Fort Morgan Cay, and a idyllic series of cays and coves surrounded by beautiful protected reefs and wrecks perfect for diving, snorkeling, and exploring.

Getting there is the trickiest part as there is no direct road access. Your best bet is to book a boat from the west end of the island (such as a catamaran from Ecologic Adventures) and make a day-trip out of it. This will give you ample opportunity to explore the Gorge and the surrounding reef, wrecks, and wildlife.

As always practice the principles of leave no trace and take nothing with you.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
