Roatan is famous for SCUBA. It is also home to an excellent freediving community.

Sean Naficy took these pictures of me one day as we were diving off the Grand Roatan Resort beach.

Check out his girlfriend’s Instagram @samunderthesea for more freediving pics.

Coral reefs and underwater freediver in Roatan, Honduras

I like freediving because it feels like freedom. Fitting, then, that this picture was taken on the 4th of July

Freediving Location in Roatan

We entered the beach right off the Grand Roatan Resort, where I stayed for a few days. I wrote about the resort and SCUBA diving in my notes and photos here: Roatan, Honduras: Pictures and Notes

The circled area had good depths as the coral reef wall dropped off.
