Went to Roatan for a month in January with the purpose of learning how to scuba dive and relaxing. Started my open water cert the day I arrived with Martin as my instructor. He was great. Was certified in 3 days and then did 20+ more dives with them. They treated me like family. Marco runs a relaxed and happy... More

I dove at Bananarama dive shop Jan 10 to 28th 2017. The manager, Marco Perata and his staff are the most amazing group to be around. I took my rescue dive course with them, my instructor Andrea Pino was patient with me but made the course lots of fun and Dive master Patrick kept me on my toes while doing... More

Just did four dives at Bananarama, they were very laid back and let you decide what you want to do. The first dive was a refresher which was very helpful as my friend had not dove for a while. Patrick was very professional and clear in his presentation, putting us at ease. I then did three fun dives which were... More

We booked this as last minute and were generally satisfied with the experience. First of the four dives was a "fun" dive and there were about 8 people on a boat. The remaining four were part of the AOW and one other diver and I were one only ones with our guide and instructor Zoe and she was super great... More

I recently got my Advanced diving certification with Bananarama. The Dive Shop Manager, Marco, is so incredibly nice. He was helpful, accommodating, and even dealt with a slight bought of hypochondria I had the day I left. In addition, my diving instructor, despite being a little salty, was truly excellent and I feel like I came away a much better... More

Can't say enough about the great people at Bananarama. Marco, Lanita, Zoey and Patrick love diving and want everyone they dive with to feel the same. I came to their shop 3 years ago as a very nervous novice and only gave myself a 50/50 chance of obtaining my open water certification. Right from the get go they made me... More

My wife and son and I dived with Bananarama for a week and had a fantastic time! Marco was great, as was the staff, at making it a memorable and enjoyable week for the three of us. Our son had not dived in six years, so Marco made a point of getting him comfortable and he was right back to... More

I didn't bring swim fins and wanted to join kids snorkeling. Headed over and asked them if they'd rent me a set, an expat was at the desk and he was quite nice and gave me a great deal for a few days. If you leave your equipment don't fret.

My family of four chose Bananarama to complete our diving certification Open Water courses. I emailed with Marco extensively prior to our trip, and felt confident we would be in good hands. Upon arrival on Roatan, we had a medical emergency with one of our larger group (10 people, only 4 diving) and had to re-schedule our dives. Marco was... More

We keep coming back because of the great staff. The boats and the gear are getting a little tired, but Marco and crew continue to make it work. Staff are all super friendly, they love diving and they want their guests to have the best and safest experience possible. The only thing that would make this experience better is if... More
