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.

Learning to dive at Scuba Roatan was an amazing experience. From their friendly staff to their great teaching skills; getting certfied at their location was a blast! I strongly recommend anyone visiting the island to join their family and learn about the magical world of scuba diving! PS. Susan was an awesome teacher ;-)

Arranged for two non-certified (discovery) dives with the shop. While others wanted steep deposits to reserve a dive, working with Amanda, it took only two e-mails. Best pricing I was quoted by 5 shops. Arranged for a driver to meet the cruise ship at a very reasonable cost, half of what others quoted. Driver was waiting as promised, couldn't have... More

although we had poor weather, my 3 teenage sons and i had (2) amazing dives with the group at Scuba Roatan. I scheduled our dives with Amanda over a month ago. We were on a cruiseship so our time frame was tight. Amanda arranged for our pick up and drop off at the terminal without a hitch. My boys were... More

Our day will not soon be forgotten. Unfortunately we didn't have the best weather, but went out to scuba anyway. Almost all of our group got horribly sea sick, had to cut the dive early, but the second time we went out was great. The reef was beautiful, the fish plentiful and the dive shop staff fantastic despite our weak... More

A storm came in while we were getting ready to dive and over half of our group got seasick, including me. We ended up back on shore and the owner went out and got Ginger Ale for all of the sick ones. The storm abated and the rest got to dive. Not exactly what we had planned but the staff... More

We had a stop on a cruise we took last week for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We found Scuba Roatan on trip advisor and decided to try them out. My husband was taking my 12 year old son for his first diving adventure and they did not disappoint. It was small and intimate, which was great! With it being my son's... More

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
