Scuba Roatan prides itself on providing professional service sprinkled with a generous amount of personal attention. Scuba Roatan is a new dive shop by name here in West End, however, it's definitely not new to the diving scene in Roatan. Owner Rino Jackson is a second generation local divemaster/instructor with over 7000 dives on the reef and still gets excited each and every time he heads out into the blue. Scuba Roatan is a small shop that specializes in small groups and a family friendly atmosphere with completely customized service.

Ask for Bill

We had a great time doing an introduction dive with Bill. He explained everything clearly and made sure we felt confident before our dive.

Scuba Roatan had a driver waiting, friendly and safe by the cruise ship. Took us to the their shop where we were met by the shop owner, dive instructor and dive masters. Only 5 people in our group. No rush, 2 dives, both over 1 hour long each! Great reefs and local knowledge. Dive sites are within 5 minutes of... More

I dove with Rino and the boys back in March while visiting Roatan for the first time. The team was very professional and there were many divers that were regulars, coming back year after year, clearly dedicated to this shop. I did over 11 dives (night dive with Bill was excellent ) and did not do the same dive site... More

This was our second year to dive with Scuba Roatan. The diving was fantastic and the crew was extremely friendly and helpful. The owner of the operation, Rino, was there to meet and greet us everyday as we prepared for the dives. We had two DM's during the week. Bill (a fellow Texan) was great. Our daughter was certified last... More

A locally owned dive shop and if not the best prices on the island, defintiely competitive. We got our PADI open water certification with them and this will be our go to dive shop on Roatan as long as we're living in Honduras.

My wife and I were vacationing in Roatan and decided to get SCUBA certified. Some of the people renting the condos around us recommended Scuba Roatan so we decided to check it out. Our instructor, Bill, was great! He was very knowledgeable and patient. My wife had a hard time with some of the skills but Bill was willing to... More

I did about 6 fun dives with Scuba Roatan this year, coming back after getting my Advanced Open Water with them last year. This year, my son (18 y.o.) got his Open Water with them. Hannah was a great instructor for him and Ander was fantastic to dive with, helping me with my buoyancy issues. My son was immediately spoiled,... More
