“1st timer and I had blast! CA couple's in Roatan!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited Roatan on May 28-June 1st with my husband.
I've been to different tropical destinations from Hawaii, Dominican Rep, Costa Rica, Tahiti and Virgin Islands BUT one problem, I DO NOT know how to swim!!
Anyways, I'm interested in Stand up paddle boarding but I'm scared because I'm not swimmer.
I did my research on Tripadvisor (I'm also hotels reviewer) about West Bay and found Roatan Paddle sports. I messaged them on Facebook and received a reply ASAP. I wrote them my concerns about being a first timer and they assure me that I will be fine.
I also enjoyed browsing at the photos they post on FB. It's updated almost daily so I get a feel of different customers they work with so I really felt assured that I can do it!....
And I did it!!
I had the class with the famous Anita and she is such darling. I felt like my mom was teaching me how to do it and it is like holding my hand until I told her, "I think I'm okay now".
Dave, Delanoe and Anita are an awesome team. They do not treat you just like some customer but a family!
Did I mentioned they have new toys (brand new boards) that just arrived end of May? You will surely enjoy stand up paddle board with them.
***Check then out! They are located near Mayan hotel. Make sure you book with the "real" Anita crew since some of the activity vendors pretend to be working for Anita and Dave. Beware of those! ** They usually wear red shirts with SUP logo.
Thank you again SUP family.
Like I said , not only did I gained new friends in Roatan but a new family that I will be looking forward to see on my next visit to Roatan!
Now I can cross off Stand up paddle board on my bucket list!

“Great Service”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

It was fantastic to meet a fellow calgarian running a great business in Roatan.
They offered us great service, paddles for a long time with us, than allowed us to keep on going for as long as we wanted.
They also suggested a pizza place near the beach, and it was perfect!!!

When we arrived in Roatan at the Mayan Dave and Anita were the 1st people that we met. They are so sweet and nice (even though Dave cheers for the Flames and Stamps - boo). My husband has always wanted to try to paddle board so this was fantastic opportunity. Dave took my daughter Kendra and Bob out to show them how and they were gone for over an hour! Needless to say, we purchased a week long pass with Anita and Dave to use 2 boards at our leisure. Paddle boarding is fun and peaceful and what a place to do it! Couldn't ask for much better. But we really enjoyed learning about the island from these 2 and getting to know them. They are truly wonderful people and we would highly recommend if you are heading to Roatan westbay beach to stop in and see them. Best decision we made. BTW Dave and Anita just to let you guys know we just booked our 2nd trip back to Roatan for March/2015 so we can't wait to see you guys then. Hopefully Dave you have better taste in teams next time we see you! We will bring you some Oilers/Eskimos apparel!! Bob, Sheri and kids

“my trip to Xbalanque”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

all wonderful. Like paradise. This is a hidden treasure. I can not believe how wonderful the entire experience was.
The only negative is I should have worn more bug stuff.
