Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are some answers to our most frequent questions from our guests...

Can we rent snorkel equipment for the week from you and how much do you charge?


Yes, it is $40 for the week per person for a full set of snorkel gear. including mask, fins, snorkel and snorkel vest if desired. $55 per person for All Access Pass which includes full use of paddleboards, kayaks and floats.




Can you help us book any dive we want to do?


Yes, if desired, any dive, snorkel or fishing trip you would like to do on the island, we can help you arrange the booking and transportation as needed for group and/or private tours. All tours are weather dependent.




Can you please tell me when your dive center was first set up in Roatan?


Our Dive Center was first established in 2007 on Roatan. Our Instructors and Divemasters have over 50 years combined experience diving.




Do you accept divers with NAUI or other organizations certification to dive?


Yes, we accept all equivalent Scuba Certifications including NAUI, SSI, BSAC, CMAS, DEA, ACUC, PDIC, SDI/TDI, and more. If you have forgotten or misplaced your card, we can look you up on the websites of PADI, NAUI or SSI currently.




Do you have Nitrox available?


Thank you for the question. We have Nitrox available mixing onsite upon request for a small additional fee per tank. We also have many Nitrox Instructors if you would like to be certified in this specialty.




Do you have to be certified to go on a group dive, or does completion of an introductory course like the the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience allow one to go on a group dive?


The Discover Scuba Diving course allows you to go on a private or group dive to a maximum of 40 ft.




Do you offer snorkel trips? Our kids just started snorkeling and want to see fish but still need a life jacket to rest when tired.


Yes, we organize snorkeling trips from boat or shore and provide all equipment including life vests for every guest and guides if desired. Just let us know when you are looking at arriving.




How large are your dive groups?


All groups are small, no more than 6 people per group with an Instructor or Divemaster and we believe the best diving happens in smaller, personalized dive groups. Smaller dive groups allow longer dive times and are more customized to your individual skill sets.




I don't know how to swim, can I enroll the open water diving certification course?


The Discover Scuba Diving allows you to try out diving without learning to swim as you are wearing a safety flotation device. If you would like to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is not until you can complete the swimming portion of the course. Our instructors are skilled at teaching easy swimming techniques prior to starting the course if you would like their assistance.
