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.

Wow- what a tremendous experience diving one of my most desired destinations. My daughter and I arrived on Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas for one day only and I had made arrangements to dive with Scuba Roatan weeks ahead- we were excited and ready to go. I did not want to do the "cattle call" dive excursion with the... More

I arranged a two tank dive with Scuba Roatan on the day we were in port on a cruise hoping they would be better than than the operator the cruise lines use, Anthony's Key who I had a bad experience with. They were easy to deal with by email and were prompt replying to questions and making arrangements about equipment... More

I returned to Scuba Roatan in May 2015 based on my excellent experience scuba diving with them in June 2014. Things were a little different this time - my friends and I were free diving, not scuba diving. Scuba Roatan differentiated itself by first taking us out (not all shops would) and also ensuring we had a wonderful experience. I... More

My boyfriend and I spent a few days diving with SCUBA Roatan. He did his advanced course while I came along for fun. We absolutely loved it. Reno (owner) was kind, welcoming and generous and the rest of the staff were a pleasure to get to know. Even after we had finished diving, the staff was always friendly and great... More

What a fantastic dive experience! My girlfriend and I took the open water PADI course and had Chip as our instructor. Not only was he a great teacher, but he was super fun and made us feel really comfortable and safe throughout our training. His passion for diving and the marine life in Roatan is great; he is super-knowledgeable about... More

I was looking for a native owned dive shop that could provide small dive groups and give special attention to my 11 year old PADI certified son. I really lucked out finding this place. The service, equipment and people were excellent. Rino (pronounced Reno) stayed close to my son on our dives and gave him the undivded attention and guidance... More

Need I say more?! This dive shop showed us a Caribbean Reef Shark, possibly the most rare creature on the reef, a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience! It was a great honor and thrill to catch a glimpse of this amazing creature in its natural habitat for a brief moment. It was a juvenile, having a scuffle with a school of large... More

I had an incredible experience with Scuba Roatan for my Open Water diving certification. I received prompt emails from Amanda for the booking and was continuously pleased with the personal attention and feedback I got while diving. Every person in the shop made me feel welcome and excited to be there and it was such a great atmosphere to learn!... More

Reserved dives with Amanda through emails. Which she replied to promptly. Amanda advised she would have a taxi waiting outside the Coxen Hole cruise port and to bring cash to pay for the dives no deposit required. I had a group of five certified divers and a group of four doing the Discover Scuba course. The groups consisted of late... More

This past week was the best diving experience I have ever had due to the crew at Scuba Roatan. Our dive masters were Chip,Suzanne and Bill. They showed true interest in us as clients and individuals and in making the dives safe, interesting and variable. They have an eagle eye attentiveness to each diver under their watch. Always something new... More
