After Diving this all this past week, even during Christmas, Bananarama really accomodated us very well. My 2 daughters did a starter dive DSD 15 and 18 years old and loved it. Marco was great with them! I worked on my Advanced and almost completed it but the weather got in the way. Martin was my instructor/leader the whole week.... More

This is my second time back to the dive centre. My first was off season in May. Fantastic weather and a quiet time to visit. I had my own personal PADI instructor- Ms. Zoe Lopez. When it was time for fun dives a few others would join here and there. I return again in off season December. And again, personal... More

I was apprehensive about doing my cert dives in Roatan. I should not have been at all. Bananarama was a great place for a newbie like me. They were incredibly patient and could not have been more accommodating. I felt at home from the first dive. The entire staff was first class and the equipment and boats were top notch.... More

I honestly don't even know where to begin when describing my experience with Bananarama Dive Center. I just returned from Roatan last night, and am already planning my next trip down there! I've been a certified diver since I was 12, and have been lucky enough to dive all over the world since then (the Great Barrier Reef included). Diving... More

My fiance and I came to Roatan so that I could become a certified PADI diver and to enjoy the island. We stayed at Bananarama Resort and signed up with the Dive Center. I cannot fully explain what a wonderful job they did. All the dive masters / instructors are top of the line. I was in a two person... More

My husband and I can't say enough about the awesome people at the Bananarama Dive Center. This was my husband's 7th and my 4th time to dive with Marco and his crew. We get the best service and the best diving of anywhere we've been. Marco finally delivered on his promise to find me a seahorse. We found 4 and... More

Had an excellent time last week diving with BDC. Fiona and Mark? were my dive masters. Loved the walls, wreck and diversity of dives. Dive Center was very eco conscious and safety conscious as well. Liked payment options and discounts with extra dives. Really liked the stops at the beach in between dives, allowing for you to do an 8... More

Wife and myself got our OW certification here. Craig was a great instructor. Very patient and thorough. Took us on amazing locations diving. Even the Captains, I think one of them was Michael, where great. Always with a smile. Can't wait to go back. Only reason we stopped diving was because we had to leave.

My brother and I spent a week at the Bananarama Dive Resort. We took a refresher course with Fiona (as it had been a few years since we dove and we are novices). We were in very good hands. She did a great job prepping us for our week of diving. We had the opportunity to dive with Fiona, Marco,... More

I want to thank Marco, Lanita and Zoe for an excellent week of diving....again. You really gave me some memorable dives. You are all awesome and I look forward to seeing you this winter.
