The staff of Hammerhead dive center picked me up at the airport upon arrival. Sylivia, Jordy, and Eric made me feel very welcome! The center is located right on the coast near fantasy island and little French key & the dive sites are only minutes away. I did my advance open water certification with Eric, who was incredibly patient & helped me feel comfortable getting back into the water. The dive sites in French harbor are beautiful & had a lot of fun with Eric and jordy on the boat! It was a fantastic start to my time in Roatan.

I spent a week staying and diving with Hammerheads Dive Center. To say it was amazing is an understatement! Words can't describe how this dive center manages to treat their customers like a family, and make them feel at home (and that we all really want to move there)! I went with a group of 12 travelers and we all felt the exact same leaving the trip. You can find great dive locations all over the world, but the type of personal relationships the people working at this dive shop create, is very hard to find. For our first part of the trip we had Divemaster Carlos with us, who not only led us on amazing dives, pointing out the small life us untrained eyes would not have seen, but he then cooked for us, spent nights hanging out with us and made it all very enjoyable for everyone. This type of personal touch was seen in all the staff at Hammerheads Dive center. The amazing Sylvia who organized everything for our trip, and made sure we were all happy, to Chris, one of the instructors. Thank you so much to Sylvia, Carlos, Chris, Boogie (Boat Captain!), and the ladies who help kept our space clean. You gave us an unforgettable trip. As a travel agent, this will be my #1 recommendation for any future clients looking to dive in Roatan for both the diving and relationships to build.

This is, by far, my favorite place - here's why... We were met at the airport, with open arms, from one of the nicest people I've ever met - Sylvia. Without skipping a beat she had transportation already arranged with her driver - Johan and was easily able to accommodate myself and the eleven others travelling with me. After only a short ride by car we arrived at the beach house where we were met with a helpful staff, a well manicured property, and a beautiful view. The place was very clean, our rooms were excellent and fit our needs exactly. The purpose of our trip focused mainly on scuba diving and this is where the fun really began, our local guide (and instructor) Chris had excellent knowledge on both marine life, the local topography and was a great person to spend our holiday with. We were also diving with two dive masters Jacob and Carlos. Jacob was an amazing diver and great personality, he was always right where you needed him and floated along as if he was born in the sea - also and excellent hunter (lion fish - an invasive species). I teamed up with him after some training to join the hunt... A memory I'll never forget. Carlos was someone with amazing dive master skills, a great personality, and the guy that you want on every kind of vacation. Not only was he exemplary in his diving skills and able to work with every level of skill in our dive team from novice to professional but also a fantastic guide and host. He is a fantastic cook and always made sure everyone was well taken care of. He kept us on track, ensuring that we were well fed and always had a smile on his face. Truly someone I hope to see again! Sylvia - our beautiful host, had everything organized and made sure we always felt at home. Also, she brought us to some exciting local spots where we had lots of fun, great food, and lots of drinks - she wouldn't rest until she new everyone was happy. She is truly a great leader and great person to spend time with. I can't wait to go back! I loved everything about this trip and give it my highest recommendation!

Outstanding service both on and off the dive boat, uncompromising quality meals, and supreme relationship-building! I spent 7 nights at the Hammerhead Dive Center in April 2018 with a crew of divers from my training facility in Ontario, Canada. I was particularly impressed by the staff's ability to balance professionalism with the development of true relationships with each of the individual divers. Hammerhead's convenient full-service approach made for a very memorable time. I was fortunate enough to spend my first 4 days with Hammerhead's all-in-one staff member Carlos. Carlos served many roles, from head-chef, to divemaster, to fish-identification teacher and finally to friend. Carlos was an exceptional chef - from explaining traditional Honduras dishes to hunting, spearing, cleaning and allowing us the opportunity to enjoy a freshly caught lion-fish! He spent extra time cleaning and drying the fins for us to take home as a very unique souvenir! As a divemaster, Carlos was extremely professional, and spent a lot of time with his group during the briefing, ensuring all divers were comfortable and ready to search for different types of coral. It was a unique experience, given so much focus is generally given to sea creatures, that we tend to forget about the beauty of the reef itself. At the end of the day, when all diving and cooking duties were complete, Carlos ensured he spent time getting to know every individual on an intimate level. He truly made the experience one-of-a-kind for the group, and it was sad for everyone to see him go before our trip was over. Group members were heard saying after - "I miss that guy" "He was the best". While his food, and professional divemaster qualities were first-rate...it's the lasting impression and positive impact he left on our team that made him a stand-out staff member at Hammerhead. Thank you for making us feel like one big family! If you are looking for a place to dive, where you can walk away with new friends, Hammerhead Dive Center earns my highest recommendation.

Last week I was a guest on the Carnival Miracle, and dove with Hammerhead Dive Center based on their TripAdvisor reviews and location. Now after diving with them, I know I made the best possible decision, and here's why: - Booking was quick, easy, and flexible, and handled via email - They were very accommodating to my specific needs (wanted excellent dive sites, unrushed dives, whilst not taking up my whole day at port. - Excellent location away from other dive shops on French Cay. This meant the dive sites were empty making for an excellent dive experience. - Only 20 minutes from Mahogany Bay. - I was the only person diving that day, so had whole boat to myself. - Captain and dive guide were excellent and tailored the dives to me. - Dove the world famous Mary's Place, which is probably the most beautiful reef I've even visited, a very difficult feat to accomplish. - When diving was over, they got me back to Mahogany Bay with plenty of time to hang at the beach with my family and grab a late lunch. I highly recommend this dive shop. If you'll be in Roatan on a cruise ship check this shop out. Other dives on the ship complained the ships vendor was rushed, and far too crowded, took the whole day, all on average reefs. Meanwhile, I paid $10 more and got my own boat and the best reef in Roatan all to myself.
