I had an amazing and unforgettable experience taking the PADI Open Water Scuba Diver course at Dive Pangea. Chrissie was incredibly thoughtful and generous with her time as we frequently had to adjust to weather changes and covid precautions. She is a wonderful human all around, an awesome PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, and offered local tips to make our vacation more enjoyable. My rock star instructor Anthony, a native of Roatan, is a methodical teacher with incredible patience and persistent care. His teaching is coupled by his vast knowledge of the sea and his gift for spotting sea life like no one can. I had never gone snorkeling or scuba diving before I visited Roatan and have a fear of the sea. What Anthony and Chrissie helped me accomplish was truly moving and life changing 🌊💙. They went out of their way and worked on a cold rainy Christmas day to help me complete as many dives as we can in the course. It truly is such a special treat to be around people who deeply love what they do and it really shows. I stayed at Camp Bay Lodge for a week and walked over to Dive Pangea every day for my PADI course. The hotel, the pristine beach, the restaurant and the dive facility nearby all made for an exquisite and relaxing vacation. I feel so lucky to have crossed paths with Chrissie and Anthony and I’m excited to return to Roatan as a PADI certified Open Water Scuba Diver for more dives and possible advanced courses with them. 💙🌊🐋🤿💫

I logged 14 dives with Dive Pangea Roatan in November, 2020, including a night dive, a wall dive, and the Roatan Marine Park lionfish certification program. So many things to love about Dive Pangea: 1. They don't rush your dives. My biggest resort dive pet peeve is dive masters who rush their customers through their dives or set a pace that guarantees customers will burn through their air quickly. Not so with Pangea. Chrissie, Anthony and Richie all set the same relaxed pace. They let you go slow, enjoy the dive, notice the small critters, and enjoy the experience. If you can milk your tank for more than an hour, no problem. They won't pressure to surface before you're ready. 2. Integrity. They ran the boat even though I was the only customer. A lot of shops reserve the right to cancel if they don't sell a minimum number of seats. Dive Pangea went out every day the weather permitted, and they had only one other paying customer only one of the days. I doubt they made money on my dives, but they had committed to provide the service and they fulfilled their commitment. 3. Esley (pronounced like the Isley brothers), the boat captain. Friendly and knowledgeable. Knows local waters and conditions extremely well. Quick to understand how much help divers want (or don't want) with their gear. Maintains perfect distance for drift dives--far enough to allow safe surfacing, close enough for prompt retrieval. Exceptionally alert to all phases of the dive operation. 4. Commitment to preserving the reef. Chrissie works closely with the Roatan Marine Park and promotes practices to protect the reef and prevent her customers from damaging it. 5. Outstanding communication and flexibility. Our vacation coincided with some bad weather that affected dive conditions and their facilities. They kept us up to date, made good decisions to cancel when warranted, adapted to the changing circumstances, selected sites my wife could snorkel while I dove, and generally did everything to make sure we had the best experience possible. 6. Just really nice people. Chrissie and her husband Brian are great people to deal with and to be with. We arrived as customers, departed as friends.

We completed our open water dives with Dive Pangea for certification the week of March 7th shortly before the borders were closed to shut out the coronavirus (more on that in a minute...). This being our second time out with Chrissie and her staff, we knew we were in for another great experience and we were not disappointed. From Chrissie’s calm and capable instruction to the support from her dive family/staff, to the first-rate equipment and the amazing reef in their backyard, we couldn’t ask for anything more perfect. Staying right next door at Camp Bay Lodge always seals the deal. We dove with two other small groups on different days, both of them returning customers as well. We will definitely return to Roatan and Dive Pangea is a huge reason why. As for the Roatan shutdown, we had already moved on to another part of the island, but Chrissie and her husband Brian reached out to make sure we were okay and had access to information and support. Every encounter we had with the locals (including the efforts of the Governor, Dino Silvestri) from that point on was incredible. Their concern for our situation in the midst of their own worries really cemented my impression of Roatan as a great community with a lot of heart and support for both visitors and islanders. I wish the best for everyone now and in the future once we can get past this; they deserve it!

We visited the week of February 22-29, and had a great experience with this dive operation. Chrissie and crew were friendly, knowledgeable, laid back and great at what they do. The dive sites were close by and offered a nice, wide variety of topography and sea life. Particularly spectacular was Dolphin’s Den, and we were all so grateful to have seen two seahorses within that single dive! The south side of the island is also accessible by a nice boat ride and offers other beautiful sites. Unfortunately, the weather gods denied us dives on our last two days. But, at the end of our last dive, Chrissie and driver, Isley, were gracious to take the time to follow a pod of dolphins through the bay. We took beautiful video and photos of these magnificent creatures as they played with us and our boat. That experience alone was worth the trip. If you are looking for a smaller, private laid back professional dive operation, look up Dive Pangea Roatan!

It was such a pleasure hosting you and your group this week, thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review! Despite Mother Nature throwing a wrench in our last 2 days of diving, it was definitely still a memorable week, especially with the big school of dolphins putting on a show for us! We are looking forward to hosting you guys for another spectacular week again very soon!
