In Roatan now with a large group. Several folks wanted to do some diving at all different levels. We talked to three shops total in West Bay. Marco was by far the most experienced, knowledgable and intelligent person we met. When trusting your life to another human, these are important qualities. We dive Friday...

First, it's extremely important to realize that while they share a name, the dive center is separate from the hotel. Marco and his crew at the dive shop run a top notch operation. We did over 20 dives during a 6 day visit with 4 different dive masters and all were amazing. I felt like we were taken care of... More

Family dove with Bananarama three times while on vacation. Easy booking, friendly staff, convenient location. No pressure, they run a tab for your dives and you just come back to settle your bill before you leave. Highly recommend.

My family and I got our open water certification over Christmas at the Bananarama and it was a fabulous experience. Our instructor, Craig, was just awesome. And so, so patient! I’d recommend the dive shop to anyone looking to get certified. Not to mention the fact that the water and sea life in Roatan is just incredible. We enjoyed our... More

Marcos is the dive master who runs the shop. Martin was the five master for our trip of 6 people. It was easy, fun, professional, and Martin pointed out all kinds of fish. I recommend these guys and will come back!

Daughter and I were able to do 2 dives each with Bananarama Dive Center. Very easy to schedule dives, extremely safety conscious and very knowledgeable. Patrick was our dive master and he was so great to work with.

My husband and I dove here and loved Zoe, Craig and Patrick. I'm a fairly new diver and Zoe was constantly checking to make sure I was ok. I did my first wall dive with Patrick and he was great. The best part about bananarama was the dive sites are about 5 minutes away. Marco was extremely helpful and we... More
