“Fishing guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

First class operation. Our local property manager suggested we look at several, but not to overlook Quality Time. We were very impressed with their equipment, and more importantly, their staff. Marco is the owner and is very helpful, our guide Otto was outstanding, along with Chris and "little" Marco. On our next trip, we will certainly use them for our diving and fishing needs

Hi Shawn,

Thanks for the review. Roatan Sales and Rentals, our parent company offers the fishing charters. They have been doing so for years. On several occasions they have won the Roatan International Fishing Tournament outright. Chris has also won the fishing tournament in Guanaja. These guys know fishing. Otto, our main dive boat captain is also an avid fisherman and usually takes people out early in the morning when they choose to go on a fishing charter. Luckily we really know and love diving at QTD. We look forward to your son completing the PADI Open Water eLearning course at home and the rest of the course here in Roatan. He is going to love it. The course will be a one on one experience with a focus on his becoming a competent and confident diver. We hope the skies treat you well on your multiple flights captain.

Cheers from Roatan,

-marco

“The best dive operators we have ever used... by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

My husband, me and my stepdaughters have been diving throughout the Caribbean for the last 10 years and have never come across a better dive shop or a better dive master ever... Marco, Matthew and Otto need to name their business something even more superlative than Quality Time Diving because they are that amazing. From the moment we met them, they got us checked out quickly, arranged every dive at our convenience and took us to one amazing spot after another. I cannot mention all the special touches in one review, but let me mention a few of the highlights. The time Otto caught a tuna for us while we were diving and sent us back to our resort with fresh Sashimi? The time Matthew caught a lion fish for us and made fresh mango ceviche for our surface interval? The video Marco prepared for us before we even left Roatan and sent to us with so many special highlights of our dive vacation? The dives that just got better and better each day?

I cannot say enough positive things about QualityTime and truly feel that because of them, we had a vacation of a lifetime and met three new friends! I cannot recommend Quality Time Divers enough!

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We were going to call ourselves Super Hiper Mega but one of the grocery stores in town beat us to it. Really that is what is called. Weather permitting, why not catch a fish during the surface interval and eat it right then and there? Or, if we spear some lionfish, why not make some super fresh ceviche? We always joked about a gut truck coming around the various boats with food during the surface interval for divers to order and munch on. Since that is not happening and we tend to be the only boat in sight for many of the dive sites we visit we will continue fending for ourselves. I am glad you liked your video, it was fun making it. Rest assure that these three friends eagerly await your next visit. We will keep Ron's number on speed dial for all inquiries regarding the dive shop.

Cheers from QTD,

-marco

“Best dive crew, hands down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We just returned from a great vacation in Roatan and the highlight of the trip was our wonderful experience with QTD. At every step they created a perfectly tailored experience for us. From picking us up on our dock at whatever time we wanted all the way to cleaning, drying, and expertly packing up our dive gear for the long flight home. Friendly and knowledgable, you could not find a better dive operation. My husband did his Advance Certification and Marco made the process simple and easy and fit it in with the rest of our group's dives. Maybe if you're lucky they'll take you hunting for Lionfish and you will be rewarded with Matt's amazing fresh ceviche! We could not have been happier with the service! Thank you!

Hi Jacqueline,

Thanks for signing up and writing a review of your experience with Quality Time Divers. We absolutely enjoyed diving with you and your family. It is a special treat to do what we are pursuing here at QTD. That is largely in part because of the amazing folks we get to meet and dive with. I just wish the sand flies would of left you guys alone. I will make sure future guests are made more aware of how important it is to prepare to avoid the pesky little things. Max should receive his PADI Advanced Open Water card shortly if not already. He did awesome. Let us know where the next family dive destination will be and when you are headed back this way.

Cheers from Roatan,

“Quality, experienced and fun times!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Hats off to Marco and the fabulous, highly experienced team at Quality time, they sure do deliver.From the moment you enter their office( a/c anyone!) to returning from your dive to fresh towels and fruit, everything is done to ensure you are having a quality time. The equipment is all new, the boat is one of the easiest I have dived off and Captain Otto sure knows what he is doing!These guys are catering to the diver, meaning they dive when and where you want to go. Go dive with these guys if its a quality time you are after, you won't regret it.

Hello Chill-laxed,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are fortunate to have the ability to run the shop the way we would like to be treated while on vacation, like a VIP. Your friends ended up diving with us b/c another shop was too full and they ended up with the boat all to themselves with us. Many places say small groups, we like to say your group to a max of 6-8 divers. If the group is bigger, then we use two boats. We love that you got to visit Spencer Rose's Garden for the first time, an amazing dive site that few divers get to visit. We look forward to diving with you again.

Cheers from QTD,

-marco

“Hands down the best dive shop and best dive masters EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

My family and I have visited Roatan, Honduras a couple times now and we have always been more than pleased with Quality Time Divers and the dive masters that work there. They are kind, easy-going, safe, knowledgeable, and passionate about scuba diving, the ocean, and the marine life. My whole family including my boyfriend are all scuba divers (all 7 of us) and half of us were certified in Roatan by Marco. Marco is the man! He is extremely knowledgable of the ocean and he knows all the dive spots in Roatan very well and knows the best times to go. For example, me, my boyfriend, my dad, and my two brothers decided to try a night dive with Marco. It was my favorite dive I have ever done! We saw octopus, flounder, lobsters, shrimp, and what is known as "the string of pearls". It was incredible! Marco had us turn off our flashlights so we could witness this magical phenomenon " the string of pearls" which happens only in the Caribbean. Marco explained to us that they are luminescent ostracods. The male ostracods let down a string of pearls that, depending on the number of pearl drops, attract their female mate. It's almost like a mating morse code. You have to witness it for yourself! It happens at a specific time at night and Marco and the other dive masters at Quality Time Divers know all about it! Diving with Quality Time Divers is always fun and well worth your money. Marco and Auto had us fishing in between dives and we caught a ton of tuna that they cut up for us on the boat and they put lime and soy sauce on our ultra fresh sashimi!!! The amount of sashimi we had would have been well worth a hundred dollars at a restaurant. It was the most delicious fish we have ever had and it doesn't get any fresher than that!! Quality Time Divers is HANDS DOWN the BEST dive shop my family and I have ever been to. And we have visited and dove in many places including Playa del Carmen, Fiji, the Cook Islands, The Dominican Republic, Belize, and more! Quality Time Divers and Dive master Marco, has everywhere and everyone beat! You will not regret diving with them!!!

Hi Courtney,

Thanks for the review and for all the wonderful things your group did for the kids and the select schools in Roatan. We were lucky to have you. It was great seeing you guys all grown up, except for your dad. He is a kid at heart and we love him for it. Now that we can implement ideas about how and where to dive, guests are welcoming the changes and our concept is proving to be a winner. Before the night dive you were quite nervous and as it turns out, it ended up being your favorite. Being part of that transformation is one of the biggest reasons there are thousands of dive instructors out there. Thank you for rating us so highly. We shall continue working towards our vision and look forward to seeing you next year. Good luck with the 8 kids.

Cheers from QTD,

-marco
