Thrilling views as you swing from the mast of a repurposed sailboat into the heart of Half Moon Bay and the tropical paradise that is Roatan.

The beloved iSoar (so named by its creator when a local bar owner said it was an "eyesore ruining my sunsets") is a repurposed sailboat anchored to the floor of Half Moon Bay which ropes, swings and platforms for leaping into the ocean.

Designed and built by the engineering maestro Karl (of the Roatan Institute of Deapsea Exploration) it has become an iconic part of West End and an essential experience for anyone visiting the island. It can be a bit tricky to get the timing right on the swing as you rock the boat back and forth for maximum distance, but any local can show you the ropes.

To get there simply swim out to the boat. The shortest distance is from Karl's / RIDE's dock on the northeast side of the bay. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
