Wow! If you get a chance, do this dive!

Here on Roatan with a family of ten. All but one of us did this dive. About 17 six to twelve foot reef sharks and one large grouper joined us. Quite an experience! We always... read more

The price may seem a little high for this single dive but it is worth every penny. We were sad that our resort confused our reservation for the day we originally booked but it ended up being the biggest blessing. The first group had 18 divers in total, was very crowded, hard to get into and out of the water... More

Absolutely loved the shark dive. Staff extremely professional and safety minded. Excellent predive briefing. An absolute must if you are a diver and in the Roatan area!!

We spent a week diving on Roatan with Sun Divers in West End (highly recommended, a 5* outfit!). At our request they booked us this shark dive experience but warned us that we should expect a 'rough and ready' approach to diving. We were not disappointed. No paperwork. No checking of dive logs or experience. A very curt and to... More

We were looking for a unique adventure in roatan, this dive is only ran by one group out of coxen hole and must be booked with your favorite dive operator, the only down fall is the boat ride out on a small boat in your full gear but it's short and worth it and no go pros any other camera... More

Somehow one shop has the monopoly on the shark dive in Roatan. All shops must contract through them. Our group had enough to get a full boat on our own. Our dive shop, as part of the deal sent two of their divemasters. And it is a good thing they did. The initial briefing was good, but the Waihuka dive... More

Awesome shark dive, lots of photo opps, extremely well handled. The team took good care of us, and was obviously loved by LuLu, the resident Black Grouper.

Here on Roatan with a family of ten. All but one of us did this dive. About 17 six to twelve foot reef sharks and one large grouper joined us. Quite an experience! We always felt completely at ease with the sharks and they felt the same way about us. The staff was professional, if not exactly friendly. The boat... More

There are a lot of negative reviews of this dive and operation and I'm compelled to disagree with them. I read them all before diving, to the point that the negative reviews resulted in my girlfriend deciding not to do the dive. I've told her she missed out on a great experience and the next time we are back in... More

Great and exciting shark dive in Roatan. Not deep, 75 feet or 22 m, not easy because of the strong current but divemasters are trained enough to keep you safe. Not relax ed! There where 10-12 sharks, 8-12feet (3-4m) not aggressive But very fast. Must do

I have read all the winging and whining reviews and I totally disagree with them. For my Buddy and I it was our third dive trip to Roatan but the first Shark Dive. I can tell you that some dive shops don't always fully explain how the Shark Dive works, only one shop does it and your safety is the... More
