Alex Watler

Boat Captain 

Alex, our captain with the music! Alex was born on the island and started driving boats when he was 6 years old! (At least now he’s tall enough to see over the helm). Alex's boat is "La Flaca", which means “The Skinny” due to its long sleek shape.

His favorite thing to see while we are out on the boat are Dolphins, and luckily we see them very often while travelling to our dive sites.

Edwin Melendez

Boat Captain & Divemaster

Edwin loves being on boats, and underneath them! Some days you will find Edwin searching for fish and small critters, and some days he will be dropping you off at your favourite dive spots! Edwin's Boat is La Reina - "The Queen".

Edwin became a divemaster because he wanted to lead dives and show people his amazing office - the Mesoamerican Reef. You will not be disappointed with Edwin as your Divemaster or Boat Captain.

Angel Chirinos

Boat Captain

Angel, our Captain of "El Guapo" which means "The Handsome" has driven some large vessels in his career! But none more beautiful than West Bay Divers biggest dive Yacht. 

Angel loves doing the day trips to the island Morat and Guanaja because we get to see a lot of our island, rainforest, reefs and lagoons. Book a private trip to meet our Captain Angel!

Meet Instructor Karim! He is a friendly and approachable Honduran diving instructor. Whether teaching a course or guiding fun dives, he is happy to share his love for the Honduran reef.

 

He knows every inch of the hundreds of dive sites around the island and is eager to share his love for the ocean with you.

Bastiaan is a world traveller who fell in love with Roatan because of the pristine diving around the bay islands. He started diving in murky waters in a dry suit, so imagine how happy he is to be diving the mesoamerican reef nearly every day.

 

This joy is spread to everyone on the boat along with great knowledge and awareness about the reef.

Ceci is a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and Underwater Photographer & Filmmaker from Argentina! She loves to take pictures & videos to share the amazing underwater world with people from around the world.

“I like to teach beginners because I get to show them the underwater world for the first time”.

 

Come and dive with Ceci so she can show you her love for the Caribbean turquoise water and the beauty of this island and its tropical vibes.
