Blue Oceans

FREE Digital Environmental Awareness Course 

TOGETHER WE CAN PROTECT OUR OCEANS

" We want everyone to be aware of the environmental problems our oceans are suffering day by day. The Mission Deep Blue movement supports the conservation and sustainable use of aquatic environments, including oceans, seas, coasts, and waterways and their magnificent diversity of plant and animal species." 

Blue Oceans

RESPONSIBLE DIVER CODE

We‘re all responsible for protecting our aquatic resources. With our Responsible Diver Code, we want to make everyone aware of the environmental problems from the start. We want them to think critically, and take positive action whenever they travel and dive.

At Roatan Dive Center SSI # 750430 we expect all our divers to be constantly aware of the environment 

when diving, under the water good buoyancy is imperative, do not touch the coral reef or tease or harass the marine life

And expect the same from others you dive with and we expect it from our Dive Professionals. 

Only use a swim-through if you can do so without touching anything
Don’t swim or snorkel too close to the reef
Don’t touch or break corals
Use labeled entrances/exits for the water
Don’t disturb the sand, since it reduces visibility and smothers corals
Don’t hunt or bother animals
Don’t touch animals unless properly trained
Don’t feed animals
Don’t take souvenirs from the sea - broken coral pieces or empty snail shells still serve as useful habitat
Only place a reef hook where it will not damage or disturb the reef
Do not disturb animals or habitat to improve your photo opportunity  

“We have created a well-researched, holistic program that is available to any diver. This program teaches readers about issues facing our ocean, and how even their individual contributions can help”, says Guido Waetzig, CEO, SSI International GmbH.

“We must start with ourselves to make things better. We must be role models and pass along our commitment to others. We must open the eyes of our families, friends, and acquaintances and encourage them to become “marine ambassadors“ as well. Education and training are the first steps”, says Guido Waetzig.

With Blue Oceans, SSI encourages its training centers and their customers to think about environmental challenges and to take positive actions that benefit the environment. The program will launch with three main topics, and more will be regularly added to keep customers informed and engaged.

What Our Scuba Diving Guests Say About Us..... 

We have an excellent time with this dive center. It is conveniently located right next to Fosters West Bay where we stayed. We literally walked down the steps into the dive shop and were greeted by friendly staff who took care of all our needs.

It was valet diving at its best. They took care of everything including dive planning loading our equipment taking excellent care of us throughout the dive and taking care of all the equipment afterward. Rates were quite reasonable. Dives were excellent.

Most of all the friendly staff made us feel like family. It is a definite do over and I would recommend this to anybody.

As a five-star PADI center, they had new equipment and excellent service.

" I did my Advanced Diver certification with Gary & Mary a few years ago, I dive with them every time I am back in Roatan. They are extremely professional, the dive shop is absolutely wonderful and they are great people. I can't say enough wonderful things about them, from service to friendliness they have it all. Roatan Dive Center is my ONLY choice when visiting this lovely island. "

Diving in Roatan is Heaven!

Wow! I can't say enough great things about Roatan Dive Center! First off let me start by saying we were all beginner divers. I had an American friend who lived in Honduras for 17 years he told us we must dive Roatan. He said he recommended Gary Miller at Roatan Dive Center. I Facebook messaged Gary and he responded promptly. We all 5 did the discovery dive program because none of us were certified. Mary and her staff took us out and did training right in front of the dive shop. They were friendly and professional. I struggled to learn a bit but the team was patient and got us comfortable under the water. We went out and dove and boy did they take us to paradise. I was in love. We ended up diving 5 more times. Mary was a complete angel and made sure nervous me was perfect every time. The team always chose the perfect dive spots for the conditions. Their boats are small and so are the groups. We were so spoiled every time. I'm already planning my next trip. Best tour I have ever done.

"Amazing staff + amazing dive sites = Top notch dive center
Recently spent 10 days on Roatan with the goal of getting my open water certification with my girlfriend. Reached out to the shop by email before arrival, Gary was very prompt with replies and got everything arranged for us to get started with the course before landing on the island. Unfortunately, the weather gods did not play in our favor and we were met with strong winds and poor visibility the first few days. I was eager to get started diving, but Gary suggested we wait it out to be sure we enjoyed the experience, he even let us join on the dive boat to snorkel a wind-protected dive site while we were waiting to start classes. After the weather cleared we spent the next few days learning SCUBA. Mary (divemaster) and Al (captain) became a second family during our time spent at Roatan Dive Center. Both incredibly friendly, passionate and knowledgeable about the sport. Our SSI instructor Ernesto was fantastic, he really made the training experience very enjoyable. A truly passionate professional and by the end of our trip we were out sharing a few drinks together. Gary was also very helpful in arranging transportation from our hotel to the airport and offering up local insight to improve our first time Roatan visit. I can't wait for a return trip to dive with Roatan Dive Center. I am not one to leave reviews often, but I was compelled to share how amazing my experience was with the shop. 
Thanks, Gary, Mary, Ernesto, Al and Christoph for the wonderful memories. - Alex and Adriana "
