“Made the trip!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Let me start off by saying that my experience with dive shops is minimal, I finished my certification at Barefoot Divers. However, the service and the facilities at this place are top notch. A storm rolled in and cancelled all diving on the north side of the island. While initially incredibly bummed, Erika worked with us to set us up with their dive shop at Barefoot Cay and everything worked out brilliantly. Kelvin was our dive master and instructor for our open water and our fun dives. He was awesome. He showed us some great dive sites, pointed out some fish/coral that we never would have seen (scorpionfish looked just like coral) and was an all-around great guy on top of it. When we go back to Roatan, we will definitely be diving with Barefoot Divers. I would recommend going to Roatan just to dive with these guys. They really made our trip and made it incredibly hard to leave.

We enjoyed diving in the Roatan, the reef was in great shape and lots of free swimming ells. Loved the dive shop, dive masters and boat captains. They did everything for you! A great group of people!

“Excellent Dive Experience”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Everything about Barefoot Divers at Palmetto Bay was top notch. Erika was friendly, informative and responsive when we set up reservations before our trip and continued to give us excellent service throughout our stay. We rented all gear and everything was in great condition. We dove on 4 separate days and each time the boats left on schedule and the dive masters, boat captains and staff took great care of us. The dive sites were all very close to Palmetto Bay which was a great bonus and the staff was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw a variety of topography. The reef seemed in good condition with large schools of fish, walls of corals and a variety of sea life. We also had 3 newly certified divers in our group including my 15 and 18 year olds and the staff took extra care to make sure they were comfortable. This is definitely a wonderful experience for anyone looking for great diving.

A very nice dive shop with good boats and equipment. They are located within 15-20 minutes of some of the best dives on Roatan. The dive masters , boat captains, and staff were very friendly, knowledgable , and helpful. Thanks for the great experience!
