Just spent a week in Roatan. By some stroke of luck, I ended up diving and kayaking with Subway Watersports next to Turquoise Bay Resort. I have been kayaking and diving in over 10 countries in the last 5 years, and my experience with Subway was one of the best!
The location: Awesome. Only 5 – 15 minutes to over a dozen dive sites. They are all so different, absolutely beautiful and unpopulated – in fact, we were the only divers in the area as far as the eye could see. Huge bonus, as it’s no fun when there are loads of groups around.
The boats: Very clean, lively/fun with music and a comfortable set up. The only complaint I have was the diesel fumes that came out of the back. But Honduras is a 3rd world country, what can I expect?
The staff: I want to mention a few names that made my experience especially enjoyable. First, the manager Kimberly is a complete sweetheart. She is very patient, kind and helpful. She seemed to really care not only about me and my wellbeing, but all of the guests that came in to dive. I felt like I was a part of the group at Subway, and as a solo traveler that is a delight. Her office assistant was smiling and helpful as well.
My divemaster was Osmen. His energy and demeanor was consistently positive. He communicated to the group well about where we were going, what we needed to do and what creatures we should look out for. I noticed he, too, tuned into the individual needs of the guests and really made it fun for everyone. We had a lot of fun lionfish hunting and he took us to great places all over the reef.
Third, the dive master interns at the resort were a pleasure to dive and spend time with. I especially enjoyed spending time with Rhami. He is very present, kind, professional and attentive. I know he is going to be an excellent dive master one day! A huge bonus was his ability to take us out on kayaks. He always made me feel safe while out on the open water. We discovered new places and had a great time doing it! I can only imagine all of the future guests who will be pleased to spend some of their precious vacation time alongside Rhami.
My only regret is that I didn’t dive more! Thank you Subway, I hope to return someday.
