We booked a two tank dive with Subway Watersports several weeks before our cruise on the Carnival Liberty. After researching local dive ops, we selected Subway due to price, nitrox availability, and provided transportation.

Booking was easy, and communications with Subway staff was fast and efficient. They answered e-mails promptly and were helpful with requested information.

Upon arrival at Mahogany Bay in Roatan, we had a short walk down the hill from the cruise terminal and were met by one of the Subway staff. She was initially surprised to see us, as apparently we weren't on her pickup list. I showed her our confirmation e-mail, and she assured us that there was no problem with our reservation. We also met two other divers from the Liberty. After a short wait for another diver (who ultimately never showed), we were driven about 20 minutes to the dive shop.

Once at the dive shop, we were introduced to our divemaster Selvin and boat captain Bruce. We analyzed our nitrox tanks and soon were underway aboard the Lady Rose.

Our dive sites selected for the day were "Turquoise Shannon" and "Sponge Wall." Our surface interval was spent back at the dive shop, where we could purchase drinks or snacks. Of the two sites, I think "Sponge Wall" was by far the best. Not only was "Sponge Wall" the best of our Roatan dives, but the best out of all of our dives on our cruise.

Subway staff was very cognizant of our time, and ensured that we got back to the cruise terminal on time. Even given this, though, we still "dove our tanks" and we not limited by any pre-determined time schedule.

We will definitely use Subway Watersports the next time we are in Roatan.

My daughter and I dove with Subway only one day on a recent diving trip to Roatan. While most of our diving was in West End, we had rented a car and found Subway while out exploring the island one day and were so impressed with the location and facility we booked a 2 tank dive for the following day.

The location is wonderful - located ½ way along the island on the North shore, it is well removed from other dive operators so, unlike West End diving, we were the only boat in the area and so didn't need to worry about running into other groups under water - which is something we experienced on every dive from West End (not that that was a problem, it was just nice to be diving out of the crowd).

The shore staff were great, the dock, rental gear and facilities excellent. The dive master & DMT's were friendly and professional. As a diver for many years (I certified long before most dive masters I've met in the past few years were born), one thing I really appreciated was that we were able to dive under our own direction. Prior to the dive, the dive master gave us a good briefing and outlined where we would dive, but once in the water let us work our own way along the wall at our own pace with the master and DMT's remaining in contact, but not actively leading. The only stipulations were that we turn once our air reached a certain point and didn't exceed our maximum bottom time. Any divers who used their air faster, were accompanied to the boat allowing the rest to continue to dive at their own pace.

The dive boat was well equipped and set up with capability for 2 simultaneous re-entries and the crew helpful and friendly.

A good day with great diving. On another trip I'd think very hard about basing in Turquoise Bay for the duration.

We had a wonderful time at Subways. Everybody was very kind and helpful. Even though the weather was awful during our course, we had a lot of fun and diving is still wonderful, also with rain and wind!
Thank you guys again for everything

This was a very good dive experience. Nelson was our dive master and was absolutely amazing. His attention to detail and our enjoyment was spot on. We saw some great sites and felt very comfortable with his leadership. Subway would be a great choice for the beginner to the expert. Can't wait to go back!

I have never reviewed anything in my life, but after my excursion with subway watersports I had to write this. My family was picked up outside the cruise terminal by Holly, a certified dive master and incredibly sweet person. An air conditioned van ride later we arrived at an awesome dive shop and great resort. My son and wife did a skills course and one tank dive, while I did a two tank dive. Only one other cruiser from the carnival liberty was on my drive boat. Amazing dive, great guide, and the one on one time to see the coral and fish made this dive trip the best of my over 10 years of diving.

Thank Coxdiesel
