Prayed to be thrown to the Sharks!!!

First boat trip ever where I prayed to be thrown to the Sharks! 6-8 foot swells and divers in full gear thrown off their seats to the bottom of the boat! Have done this twice... read more

The underwater part of the trip was absolutely amazing, but the Shop, the staff, the treatment, and the equipment were really disappointing. Terrible dive center (don't think they are certified), the boat was not appropriate for diving equipment, it was just a regular boat, most of the equipment didn't function properly (my inflation mechanism of the BCD wasn't working properly),...

The underwater part of the experience is great, but this shop can't take credit for what the ocean provides. They provide nothing! The building was in shambles, the boat was a joke. We almost swamped in a grossly overcrowded boat that was not designed for the job. I will never dive with them again.

First let me say the sharks were amazing and the photos turned out great. BUT THE SHOP IS NOT TO BE USED, TRUSTED OR PURCHASED FROM. They don't have proper equipment, what they do have is poorly maintained, the staff doesn't help with ANYTHING(preparing gear, getting on and off the boat, underwater equipment failures, proper planning of the dive ratios,...

Let the sharks be the least of your worries!! The dive shop and boat ride out to the site should be your worry! No safety straps to hold your tanks in place and the captain if you would call it that was going way to fast for the conditions of the water....very high waves at one point a wall of... More

The sharks will be awesome, just make sure you and your buddy do your own safety checks because no one in the dive shop seems to view you as anything but a potential $50 DVD sale. The two of us felt way more comfortable 70 feet down swimming among sharks than during the boat ride out of the site, probably... More

I was truly amazed with the sharks, they put on a good show. I saw them gathering the moment I started to descend. The visibility exceeded 100 feet. Our small party arrived early due to scheduling on the cruise we were on. Instead of a welcome and make yourself at home, we got, "what are you doing here so early?... More

Diving with sharks at Roatan has been one of the best things I have done in my life, to have more than 20 sharks at your side is a dream come true. I just think that the people from the dive center (there is only one dive center in Roatan that does it, you can book it at any diveshop,... More

This is a must do for a diver in Roatan. I went with three of my friends and with some of us being new divers they made us feel very comfortable. The dive itself was great and so were the sharks. Very up close and personal. It was super cool!! We all had a great time.
