Owner description: Scuba Roatan prides itself on providing professional service sprinkled with a generous amount of personal attention. Scuba Roatan is a new dive shop by name here in West End, however, it's definitely not new to the diving scene in Roatan. Owner Rino Jackson is a second generation local divemaster/instructor with over 7000 dives on the reef and still gets excited each and every time he heads out into the blue. Scuba Roatan is a small shop that specializes in small groups and a family friendly atmosphere with completely customized service.

I chose them based on their low key profile and website - I was looking to finish my open water cert and didn't want to get in with a big group and slow anyone down. This was perfect, in fact for three days (off-season) I had one-on-one attention for five dives. Chip and Ander were patient yet pushed my limits... More

Some friends and I chose Scuba Roatan, partly because of positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. After emailing back and forth we felt confident that they could address my friends' concerns as new divers and provide a great dive experience for me with a more advanced profile. BINGO - they nailed it! Dive group sizes were small but even so,... More

WoW. We felt like we were at home half way around the world! First-rate diving experience @ SCUBA Roatan. Owners Rino and Amanda made us feel so welcomed from the very first email. They arranged a great driver to get us to/from the cruise terminal--super nice guy! My husband arranged two tank dives for my birthday. We got in early... More

I arrived Roatan by cruise ship. Amanda arranged an on time and friendly ride from the cruise terminal. Amanda and Rino, the shop owners welcomed us like family. The shop is small and laid back. We had 3 divers on the boat. They carry a maximum of 6 divers. The dive master, Ander, was great. When we finished the dives... More

I had a couple amazing dives!!! I have recently gotten back into diving and am pretty inexperienced, I was lucky to arrive on a pretty slow time of year and was provided VIP service. I had a one on one experience with a young dive master that took his time to teach me and point out every thing on the... More

My husband and I chose Scuba Roatan based on its proximity to our lodging AND the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. I am so glad we did! We enjoyed our whole week of diving, especially the canyons and swim-throughs. They really cater to your needs and provide the type of diving you enjoy, but with safety in mind. Thank you... More

A buddy and I traveled to Roatan on Navigator of the Seas and had the opportunity for a two tank dive. After searching for recommended dive shops, we chose Scuba Roatan - lucky us! The people are helpful and VERY friendly. They took the two of us to a couple of spots where we had GREAT dives, but equally important... More

My first dives in Roatan were great thanks to this awesome dive centre. I went on two dives over two days with Chip as the dive master and both were fantastic! I had to do a refresher course for the first dive since it had been a while since my last dive, but it was quick and we went out... More

We had a fantastic diving experience with Scuba Roatan. We have been to Roatan before but diving with Scuba Roatan was the best. They really put their customers first. The crew is first rate!! I am a diving diva. I like that they hauled my equipment to and from the boat and set it up. All I had to do... More
