We spent just a day with Barefoot Divers when our cruise ship was in port. Just 10 minutes from Mahogany Bay, the diving was excellent, the operation very organized and friendly. It was just two of us along with our divemaster and a divemaster-in-training, which meant nearly an hour for each dive! Although the day started out rainy, we were... More

The dive staff was also just amazing: India was our Dive Master and Jason our driver. India was really great at planning responsible dives (ie. doing the deeper dive earlier in the day, paying attention to reminding us of the necessary safety stops); and how Jason was always able to put us right at the determined dive spot even when...

My husband and I completed 9 dives in 5 days with Barefoot Divers. Our diving experience prior to coming here was 28 dives in various places such as Belize, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta-we are not expert divers, but we have experienced several dive operators in various countries. With Barefoot Divers, we experienced top notch service and expertise the entire time. Each... More

We arrived to a lot of people standing around. We spent about 45 minutes just trying to get equipment. There were a lot of people working but it seemed that one didn't know what the other was doing. That being said, we had some decent dives and our guides were okay. I would have given them a lower rating, but... More

The Dive Operation here is very professional. My husband had a diving incident requiring a trip to the hospital. The divemaster and Stephanie drove us in the car to the hospital and were unbelievable supportive and helpful in managing the incident. I would never have expected such service in Honduras as we had there. They truly saved his life.

We have dived 5 times with Barefoot Divers and always enjoy the prospect of more diving with them. Mary and all the team look after you well and provide a great valet diving experience. You feel like you are on a big family dive trip. Their location gives access to some of the best dive sites around Roatan.

This is a well run operation. The dive boats are spacious and clean. The shop is well organized and spotless. You are greeted with a fresh towel and watermelon or fruit after every dive while returning to the pier. A hot water shower is waiting for you to rinse off during your surface interval. You can order food from the... More

The dive masters take extremely good care of the divers and equipment. They exercise safety on each dive. It is valet diving so divers just basically need to show up. The boats are small so the dive groups are as well. No more than six (experienced) divers per one dive guide. The dive shop also ensures that divers do not... More

My husband and 22 year old daughter had done two dives with this shop when they were in port on a cruise ship. We decided to return for a week of diving while staying at the resort. It is a great shop ( & resort!). We each have about 90-100 dives. The shop is well run, organized, rents well maintained... More

This was my second visit to Bare Foot. The first was to prepare for my PADI IE in 2012 when I stayed for 10 days and took the IE over on Utila.
