First off, the dive shop is excellent, without a doubt; we dove with numerous return visitors to Roatan who were staying elsewhere in West Bay, but still insisted on diving with Bananarama. Marco runs a tight ship, and when he manages to schedule himself to lead a two-tank dive you won't regret having him along; he loves to schedule a... More

We had a wonderful experience with the dive shop and staff. We are middle aged/novice divers and had not dove since getting certified about a year ago. We took a refresher dive off the beach and it started a great vacation. We saw a 6' moray eel on just our refresher dive alone! Patrick was our main dive master. He... More

Chose Bananarama for my first try at scuba and was extremely pleased. Zoe was our dive master and I cannot recommend her enough! I was concerned about how it would go but Zoe was great with her 45 min pre-dive instruction and was so patient with me when I started having ear issues after 20 ft. The dive was spectacular...

We just got back from West Bay Beach and had a great time diving with Marco, Zoe and Rika. The dives were some of our best and all of the dives were about 60 minutes or more, I checked my log book and noted I have never dove with a group that was able to deliver such consistently great and...

We have dove all over the world. My husband and I are Adv OW, nitro certed. We decided to dive with Bananarama. They had 3 dives available daily, plus a night dive twice a week. The shop was well run. Equipment was in good condition and operated properly. Boats were small with the largest group being 8 people, which was... More

We visited in June and were excited to get back into diving after a long absence. They really worked with us to help us feel more comfortable using our skills, while seeing some amazing undersea life! Marcos was so enthusiastic and gave us specialized attention to grow our confidence. He loves to dive and wants to share it, it's obvious.... More

This was my second time diving with Bananarama Dive Center. I dove five days of two tank morning dives with them, along with my newly certified step daughter. Her boyfriend also was doing his Open Water Certification with them on this same trip and he did his last OW dive and his first couple of dives after being certified with... More

Great place that we enjoyed to the full extent! Great refresher diving course that rebuilt confidence in guys that had not been diving in a while. Thirsty Turtle has great staff and we loved the local vibe.

I used to not be a great diver. I say that in the past tense, because we just spent a week diving with Bananarama. When we got to Roatan, I had no self confidence when diving, and totally could not do a safety stop. However, now I can do a great safety stop, and I am so confident! We dove... More
