My husband pretty much forced me to take the discovery dive class! I was VERY nervous! Craig was our instructor and was very patient and reassuring! I am pretty sure I would have given up if it weren't for him! It ended up being very cool and I feel like I checked an item off my bucket list! Everyone at... More

It was the low-season, so we were able to schedule dives the day before. Went on 3 dives with Marco and had a great time. Equipment in tip top shape. Just note that unless you pay cash, you'll be assessed a 16% card fee

There were a few times I thought she was going to back out. Zoe saved the day, her patience and professionalism put us both at ease. After we did our... More

After a 30 year hiatus from diving we took a refresher course with Zoe who made the transition back to the water fun and easy. Both Zoe and Lanita made sure that subsequent dives were tailored to our comfort level and interests. We would not hesitate to recommend them for their incredible enthusiasm and expertise!

This dive shop is nothing special, it was just fine for a few dives, but I would not call them as being the best or whatsoever. I did not feel especially safe or welcome. They work like a factory, and they are just money oriented. 8 divers per boat and per dive master seem to be the norm here, which... More

These folks are wonderful and the boat captains are top notch. Special kudos to Michael for extraordinary piloting in a very rare storm but all are expert. The... More

Because of the great experience I had with Zoe, I'll be back next year to get my open water certification. The entire experience with the Bananarama Dive Center was exceptional. I had a one-on-one experience with Zoe that made me feel comfortable and safe. Like many people, I have wanted to dive for years, but didn't know if I would... More
