Discover Roatan | Rusty Shipwreck Tour

After our Garifuna experience, our tour guide took us to the Rusty Shipwreck.
The boat behind us reminds me of the ship in the movie, The Pirate's of the Carribean.
We have to take a local small boat to get to our destination.
Roatan is one of the few places where you can see a real shipwreck.
Two wrecks grounded close together within the confines of Dixon Cove are Dixon Cove Wrecks. According to our tour guide, both wrecks have been decaying there since the 1970s. 
There are a few mysterious stories about these ships. Some claim one ship, with a cargo of lumber, ran aground in a storm. The second ship came to assist, and also ended up on the reef. Others say the cargo was marble. One version maintains one was a Cayman-owned vessel run aground intentionally for insurance. Rumors persist that the ships were involved in the Nicaraguan revolution, then abandoned. Longtime residents report that the wrecks were two separate incidents. One did carry lumber; the other carried paint. Both ships caught fire and were abandoned.
What a very fascinating piece of history.
Here's our ship waiting for us to get on board...:)

I also like to visit such places where you have completed their visit with your family members because the scenes of the ships are horrible, drowning in the sea. Assignment writing services

The idea behind wakeboarding is not new; rather, it was created by fusing three different sports disciplines: water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing. A boat pulls the wakeboard along behind it. Tahoe kayak
