The Roatan Marine Park (RMP) is a grass roots, community-based, non-profit organization located on the island of Roatan, 50 kilometers off the mainland coast of Honduras.
RMP was formed in January 2005 when a group of concerned dive operators and local businesses united in an effort to protect Roatan’s fragile coral reefs. Initially, it was RMP’s goal to run a patrol program within the Sandy Bay-West End Marine Reserve (SBWEMR), to prevent over exploitation through unsustainable fishing practices. Over time, RMP expanded the scope of their environmental efforts through the addition of other programs encompassing the entire island.
Blue Island Divers Resort is an active supporter and Silver Sponsor of the Roatan Marine Park.
For participating in all Blue Island Divers Resort dives or courses, guests are required to buy RMP’s daily tickets (us$3) or yearly bracelets (us$10). This way we can all contribute for the protection of Roatan’s beautiful reefs!
