July 2017 Finds

July was full of all sorts of amazing finds here at Tobri Divers! We have been really fortunate with our Macro finds. The South side of Roatan is definitely more popular for nudibranchs and flatworms than the North side. We've also been very lucky with the amount of nurse shark sightings we've had. They seem to be around way more this time of year. One of the seaslugs that keeps popping up on our radar these days is the very beautiful Painted Elysia (Thuridilla Picta)  Elysia is a genus of sea slugs,  marinegastropod molluscs in the family  Plakobranchidae. These animals are colorful sea slugs, and they can superficially resemble nudibranchs, but are not very closely related to them. Instead they are sacoglossans, commonly known as sap-sucking slugs. Come visit us for a chance to see one of these amazing creatures.

Dive Pro Stay-cation

We had our first official staycation at Tobri Divers Resort. We've decided to give some of the scuba instructors on the island the opportunity to dive the South side of the island and experience what it's like to be an overnight guest here. Goes without saying it was a HUGE success. What else can you expect when you put 10 proffesionals underwater together to explore. We found amazing things, some known and some yet to be identified. One things is for sure that this needs to happen at least once a month. One of the instuctors said something that I have to share and this is something that anyone living on an island can relate to. He said: that people always ask him where he will go on holiday if he already lives on a tropical island. And he turned and looked at me and said: Well I'm on holiday right now." Try something new, break that routine and explore! If you have a love for scuba diving and whether you are living on Roatan or not come check out Tobri Divers for a unique diving experience and relaxing surroundings.
