We are conveniently located in Sandy Bay, just a ten minute drive to both the Coxen Hole cruise ship port and West End town. Roatan is home to one of the largest and diverse barrier reefs in the world and we dive some of the finest, least-visited dive sites on the island. At Blue Island Divers, we guarantee small groups and professional, personal attention. We specialize in fun dives (including wreck and night dives), all levels of SSI and PADI courses, snorkeling, boat/snorkel tours, and fishing trips. Our dedicated staff is here to help you customize your trip to make your stay as relaxed and care-free as possible. Enjoy use of our quiet beach complete with lounge chairs and hammocks, clean restrooms/changing areas, a garden oasis fresh-water shower, and of course ice cold drinks! Enjoy lunch at The Salty Mango, a small bar and grill located on property, serving a variety of delicious, home cooked dishes. We even have beachfront accommodations available for rent by the night or week. Whether you are taking a SSI or PADI course with one of our fantastic Instructors, exploring the amazing underwater world with our fun, adventerous Divemasters , snorkeling our incredible reef, fishing the blue waters, or just relaxing on the beach, you are sure to have a memorable time at Blue Island Divers. less
