Did 7 dives with the Bananarama dive center and they were all great. I dove with Daniel and Lanita. Both were excellent guides. The shop was very organized. I brought my own equipment and they dried and stored it for me all week. My equipment was ready and bundled for me in the morning for the first dive. You load... More

Dive equipment was well used and a bit tired. I hadn't been diving in awhile and signed up for a refresher course but just ended up being thrown in with the discover scuba course.

Wife got sick on 2nd week of trip to Roatan. Got her to the clinic & got treatment to help get her home. It was a "bacterial deal", & they identified it, got us some drugs to get her home, & were MOST HELPFUL. S U P E R folks.

This was our first trip to Bananarama and Honduras. In short, it was FABULOUS! We started out meeting our cab driver after a short walk. His name was Stephen and he was great. He told us so much about the island and the culture we all really enjoyed him. When we got to the resort we were checked in by... More

We were pleased to spend two weeks diving at Bananarama again this year, mostly with Lanita and Marco. Their professionalism, passion and patience were noteworthy. Particularly enjoyed the trip up to Bears Den, with numerous cool swim throughs, West End Wall and Mary's Place! We had the privilege of doing our first ever night dive with Lanita and the timing...

Eighth year diving with Bananarama Dive Center and once again they didn't disappoint. Marco and the staff were up to the challenge. Taking on team Canada lion fishing team. The boat captains are skilled at their craft and are always there to help. Thanks for another great year! Thanks to Lynetta, Zoey, Katy and Marco..

My husband and I did an advanced dive course and then did another 10 dives while we were there. Our divemasters, Zoey and Daniel were awesome--super friendly, knowledgable, fun and wonderful instructors! Bananarama also had great food and service for between and after dives. Great prices and location.

We previously did a dive with Las Rocas because we were staying there... no complaints, but nothing special, nothing bad. They also offered a night dive but we were switching accommodations to stay at Rumors which is just a couple minutes walk from Bananarama so we thought we'd check out the dive shop there on the recommendation of the other...

I can't say enough about how great the staff at the dive center was, specifically my instructor Katy. I was on the fence about scuba diving because I'm generally scared of what lives the water. I figured that I would do a small dive from shore and could swim back if I hated it. I was very close to swimming... More

I have now completed two certifications through Banarama dive center. All staff that I encountered were helpful, friendly and organized. While they provide the expertise and confidence that can only be the product of thousands of dives, there is still an atmosphere of excitement and amazement on every trip. As an instructor, Zoe brings the great passion and enthusiasm that... More
