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. This time it was as a PADI IDC Staff Instructor helping Course Director Gary Miller with his OWSI class of students in March 2014 for two weeks. Almost... More

They are organized, professional, and fun in a classy sorta way. I took my IDC there. The bus picks you up in West End at 7:00 AM. Then there's lots of classroom and underwater instruction too detailed and numerous to mention here. But if you are looking for a great setting, great instruction, great food, and professional SCUBA instruction…this is... More

We soon realized that I had screwed up our reservation and we were not sure we could get it done. Erika Macauley to the rescue! She immediately got on the phone worked diligently to get us a dive instructor (Matt) and... More

This company is great! Our master diver was Tex and he was terrific! I'm a newly certified diver and due to his calm demeanor I felt less nervous and safe. We were suppose to the only ones on the dive ( we paid extra for this bc of my nervousness) however another gentleman ended up accompanying us. After the dive,... More

When I was researching my options for IDC (Instructor Development Course) to become a scuba instructor I had options to go just about anywhere where Star Alliance flies and after several weeks of research I've decided to do it with Gary Miller at Barefoot Divers. I've spent 3 weeks with Barefoot Divers mentored by Course Director Gary Miller. It was... More

Dive with ease with Barefoot Divers! Complete equipment setup and clean afterwards. Your job is to get on the boat, suit up with gear, and dive! They do the rest. Super friendly, energetic staff! Delicious food between dives as well.
