The 240-foot Jado Trader was a refrigerator freighter scuttled in 1987 to form one of the richest artificial reefs in Roatan. She rests on a sandy bottom, completely intact and in waters between 80 and 110 feet, suitable for experienced divers. Today, the coral coverage is quite good, marine life is excellent and it is one of the most photo genetic wrecks in Honduras. Wreck divers can visit its cargo holds and bridge. A bit away from the wreck are two coral pinnacles starting at 20 feet beneath the surface, one even offering a splendid volcanic cave and chimney named Frisco's Jewel.
It is diving with silversides, groupers, jacks and sometimes you might find hammerheads visiting the wreck. There even is a resident green moray eel, who expects to be fed by divers, so don't be afraid if it comes very close.
