Best Value Cruise Ship Diving on Roatan

Shark Dive Special - Certified Divers Only !

Must have your Own Dive Equipment

and have proof of diving within the last 6 months

In Our " Shark Dive Package " we offer a dedicated Shark Dive on the South Shore of Roatan , and within 12+ minutes of the Cruise Ship Docks.


Cara Cara, which in Spanish means Face to Face, is the worldwide famous Shark Dive in Roatan. It is organized by Waihuka situated in the south side of the island. Here is where you will literally be “face to face” with 10-15 Caribbean Reef sharks, mainly all female.


The very expert staff will give you a very detailed briefing in the dive shop. After a 20 minutes boat ride you will arrive at the site of the shark encounter called “Marcos Place”. You will have a system of lines from the boat and a descending line too, as the site is often characterized by mild, strong current. You will descend on a flat plateau at the depth of 70 ft.  As you descend you will already see all the sharks swimming around in the area.


The dive starts in a stationary position, you will have a little wall behind you, that means the sharks will never come from behind you. The divemaster brings a bucket with fish that at the beginning will be close. If the current is not too strong you will have the possibility to swim with them and that makes you experience spectacular. Swimming around you will see large Barrel sponges, amazing soft corals, Black groupers, Green moray eel and schools of Horse eye jacks.


When your tour finish, your divemaster will ask you to go back into the initial position and he will open the bucket at a distant of 10 ft. And now the real show begins! All the sharks will fight to have the best bite. When the bucket is empty usually the sharks leave, and you will have the possibility to find in the same area where they fed them little tooth to take home as memory.


The Sharks can measure up to 10ft in length and their lifespan is believed to be around 25 years.

The max depth is 70ft and bottom time 30 - 35 minutes.


Please be aware ships time and Island time maybe different , all cruise ships keep the local time of the port they leave , so bare in mind that ships time and Roatan time are not the same , so we'd love to help you make the most of your excursion time.


We offer Port pick-up and return transport and 1 Single Shark Dive without dive gear rental, the dive itself is lead by a staff member at the Shark Dive Operation. The Shark dive facility has changing rooms and bathrooms.

The Shark Dive Operator requires a minimum of 4 divers on the day we will e:mail confirmation 24hrs prior to docking, if for any reason the Shark Dive is cancelled then we'll offer our 2 Tank Dive Package and refund the difference.    




All this for just $120.00 per person

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 "
