The Island is a beautiful unspoiled destination with great snorkeling and friendly people. It has the 3rd largest barrier reef and is a UNESCO Bioshere Reserve. The infamous pirate Henry Morgan used Providencia as a base for raiding the Spanish empire, and rumors suggest that much of his treasure remains hidden on the island. Many parts of the island are named after Morgan. Forts and cannons dating back hundreds of years can be found scattered all over Santa Catalina Island. You will enjoy 4 days aboard the ship in Providnecia. This trip is for the fit adult who can withstand the rigors of offshore sailing. Rough weather and seasickness is a possibility. Physical exam required prior to sailing. All meals included with the exception of one meal on your own ashore in Portobelo and one meal on your own ashore in Providencia.
Isla Providencia Dive Week
Spend a week aboard Alliance at Isla Providencia and dive every day with the local dive masters. The diving here is amazing with lots of sharks and stingrays. Plus there are some great hikes to the mountain peaks. A trip to Providencia wouldn’t be complete without an evening at the infamous Rolands reggae beach bar, and a mixed lunch platter at El Divino Nino beach restaurant. The diving will be with the local dive company. They will pick you up at the ship every day and take you to the dive sites.
February 13 – 19
$1850 (not including the dive fees and 2 meals ashore)
Dive week in Guanaja Honduras
Isla Guanaja is one of the 3 Bay Islands located ~30 miles off the coast of Honduras. The other 2 are Roatan and Utila. Guanaja is the least visited of the 3 Bay Islands. The island’s warm, clear waters support an extensive coral reef that is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef and second only to the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. This reef system extends along the coast of four countries: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras. It begins near the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and continues south down the eastern coast of Belize extending past the north-east corner of Guatemala and ends near the Bay Islands of Honduras. The diving here is spectacular! You will be picked up at the ship every morning by the local dive master. They will take you to their favorite dive sites for 2 dives per day.
