We were diving off Roatan near Cocoview last Thursday morning. Nice relaxed dive at 70', not far from the Aggressor. Suddenly we all heard what we thought was a cruise-ship over us. A deep roar and cracking sound for about 20 seconds. I looked up wondering what made the noise. Assumed that it was a boat of some kind. Nothing visible. We finished the dive and the captain told us that it was an earthquake. First for me in over 3,000 dives!


I just described this experience from a dive I did in Puerto Rico a few years back. It is amazing...a very unique sound.

Welcome to the Club!!

I have had at least three earthquakes hit while underwater. All were in Vanuatu. One sounded like a huge cruise ship had passed nearby. The others were less obvious/strange.
