Great location, great service, fantastic boats and diving done properly. It was fantastic to meet Michele (Mish) and Alvin, the owners. Alvin is a local legend, one of... More

They are extremely professional and are so familiar with all the different dive sites, so we always had fantastic and very varied dives. Initially I was so nervous about diving but Alvin... More

I went Night Diving with Alex at Native Sons and it was like entering a magical fairy land with strings of pearls all around us glowing in the dark. This can only be seen to be believed! We saw all kinds of creatures including turtles, squid, and a lion fish!

Loved diving with Native Sons! The dive master team was professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. They were attentive but encouraged diver independence. It's a well organized shop. We got out to interesting and varied dive locations. Would definitely recommend Native Sons, whether you're just learning or experienced or just getting back into scuba diving!

People ask me why I come back to Roatan each and every year, well it is beautiful, and of course there is Native Son's dive shop. They are knowledgeable, but more importantly they make it fun from the beginning to the end, making sure that everyone is welcome and relaxed. My girlfriend was having some issues, but Alex, Eddie and... More
