I took the Discover course with my teenage son and daughter. This was our 2nd dive in Roatan but first with West Bay Divers. Since we stayed at the Grand Roatan it was very convenient for us to dive with WBD. The staff is working out of a temporary space due to the construction at Grand Roatan. Not ideal but they're making the best of it. Bastiaan was our instructor he was great fun and made it easy for us to get prepared for our dive. A photographer Ceci came along and took photos which turned out great. We took a short boat ride after completing our walkthrough of all the dive basics near the resort. Unfortunately, we didn't run across any turtles or rays on our trip but it was still a good experience. Thanks to the GM Wayne for responding to my emails at all hours of day.

We just returned from Roatan, where my husband and I were only planning to do a discovery dive (we’ve never dove before). We were paired up with Gabriela (Gaby) for the discovery dives, and she was so knowledgeable, patient and friendly, that we ended up changing our minds and got certified because it was so much fun! I can’t say enough great things about Gaby - she was incredible to work with it, we ended doing six dives with Gaby and the crew at West Bay Divers, they are exceptional! Kudos also go out to Alex and Anthony, the friendliest crew you can have on the boat! We can’t wait to go back and see them again soon.

Spent 3 days diving with Roger, Alonzo, Hazel, and I believe Andrew. We did discovery dives with 3 family members not yet certified from the beach and additional dives and snorkeling on 2 other days. The crew was awesome and made for a great time for all! We enjoyed their company and they made the younger divers feel totally at ease! Would definitely book with y’all again!!!!

My girlfriend and I dived twice with Bastiaan while on vacation in Roatan. It was two fantastic dives where Bastiaan guided us to the best spots. He was great at giving us directions and taught us what we needed to know. Great communication skills and helped us spot things during the dive. I highly recommend asking for him if you are in Roatan. Enjoy 😊

Highly recommended. Husband just finished his Advanced Open Water with Roger. I have mine but wanted to dive so I got to amble along behind and get some time with the reef while they did the certification exercises. He chose a wreck dive as one of the specialties so we got to dive the El Aguila wreck and finished off with a very successful night dive (2 octopus and the string of pearls the highlights). Roger was great, tailored instruction to my husband’s skill set, and was excellent at finding ‘all the things’. Our older son got his open water with WBD early 2021 so we’re 2 for 2! A solid experience from initial communication to final sign off. The shop has great parking and the added bonus of Beachers Restaurant at beach side for a post-dive snack.
