Everyone we encountered through the dive certification/experience was very helpful and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Would recommend for any person looking to get a start in SCUBA. From Mariela, to Andrea, Rolando, Mike, to Patrick, all were knowledgeable and very helpful through the entire week. We will be back

Our group split up for our day in port - those that were scuba certified went diving, and the rest of us hung out on the beach. Bananarama met us at the cruise port and shuttled us to their location, which was very convenient. The scuba divers had an amazing day - the outfitting and dive masters were great, and... More

We made 18 dives over 7 days (between two people). Our night Adventure Dive was very fun. Martin and Patrick were our dive masters, and they were very good. I'm fairly new to Scuba and they gave me tips that really improved my skills. The reefs here are unbelievable... Eagle rays, sea turtles, Moray eels, and a myriad of other... More

In Roatan now with a large group. Several folks wanted to do some diving at all different levels. We talked to three shops total in West Bay. Marco was by far the most experienced, knowledgable and intelligent person we met. When trusting your life to another human, these are important qualities. We dive Friday...

First, it's extremely important to realize that while they share a name, the dive center is separate from the hotel. Marco and his crew at the dive shop run a top notch operation. We did over 20 dives during a 6 day visit with 4 different dive masters and all were amazing. I felt like we were taken care of... More

Family dove with Bananarama three times while on vacation. Easy booking, friendly staff, convenient location. No pressure, they run a tab for your dives and you just come back to settle your bill before you leave. Highly recommend.

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and a friend of ours dove with Bananarama for 4 days. My boyfriend and I got our open water certifications and our friend completed her advanced open water certification. We were supposed to show up to work out our dive schedule with Bananarama the day we arrived but we arrived after 7 due to... More

My family and I got our open water certification over Christmas at the Bananarama and it was a fabulous experience. Our instructor, Craig, was just awesome. And so, so patient! I’d recommend the dive shop to anyone looking to get certified. Not to mention the fact that the water and sea life in Roatan is just incredible. We enjoyed our... More

Marcos is the dive master who runs the shop. Martin was the five master for our trip of 6 people. It was easy, fun, professional, and Martin pointed out all kinds of fish. I recommend these guys and will come back!
