Great night dive with Stu. They do a night dive on Thursdays. Unfortunately the shrimp that produce the "String of Pearls" weren't out that night. Still a great dive. Lots of other marine life to see.

Third time diving with Stu and first with Vivi. The equipment is perfect and plenty of it. If you forget something, no worries. They are very helpful, even picked us up from our dock. If you want a place where you dont have to think at all and just relax and enjoy your dive - this is it. Shark dive,... More

My wife and I dove with a Marco Alvarado. It was an unusual situation. Suffice it to say, for this review, we used the Diving Center equipment, and it was first rate. The best, by far of the seven different places we have dived. We also had a chance to meet the owner, and some of his employees, and all... More

Had the pleasure of doing a bunch of dives with Island Diving when visiting Roatan. Every aspect of this center is very professional, from the equipment to the boat captains to the dive masters and the shop manager and owner. They are very accommodating and concerned for the safety of their guests. I like the relaxed atmosphere and welcoming feel... More

Great place, whether you're looking to get certified, or are already an experienced diver. Warm, friendly staff offer a wonderful concierge service, take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy the dive. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

They had a driver waiting at the port to pick me up... More

I have a large family of 12 scuba divers and the last two times we came to Roatan we dove with Island Diving Center. We've used their services for adventure dives, certifications, snorkeling, etc. and we have never been disappointed. All their staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and fun people and it always makes us sad to say goodbye to them... More

4 of us took the Discover Scuba class/dive. We were on the Norwegian Pearl cruise, but I made these arrangements directly with Island Diving based on other reviews from Trip Advisor. Travis was so great. He always responded to emails even tho it was the holidays. Our instructor was Stuart. Very funny and very professional. It was kind of scary... More
