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 "
