Did I make that title long enough? Or this review?? It's hard to highlight just one thing when talking about these guys, but Island Diving is a top quality PADI dive shop. I visited Roatan in September for a week, where I earned my Open Water and Advanced Open Water certifications (9 dives total). I visited them again for another... More

I spent a week in Roatan diving with Island Diving Center. Travis & his whole team are great - super friendly, knowledgeable, and safe. Our group was staying in a house in between West End and West Bay and they came and picked us up every morning. I really enjoyed spending time with every divemaster and my mom also had... More

We were in Roatan 10/15-10/22 and had booked the apartment of one of the dive masters, Bill, for IDC and decided to check them out. The decision was spot on, as were the reviews we had read. Their equipment is excellent, as are their staff and dives. We snorkeled, and they made sure they catered as much to us as... More

I went online and found island dive center for a very reasonable price and they had the best reviews. My fiance and sons friends decided to book 2 snorkelling... More

The owners of this dive shop are very nice and accommodating. Extremely professional and if you are an experienced diver on a cruise that doesn't want to be herded around like cattle, this is the place to book off-ship! The day we went there were 2 couples from our cruise ship (including us), two dive masters in training and one... More

We were looking to avoid the big cattle dive boats and so glad we found these guys. Friendly, professional and VIP service. Everyone at Island Dive Center loves what they do and it really shows! Thanks for an amazing week of diving, Dan Edwards

Our cruise stopped for the day in Roatan and our cab driver took us to the West End Island Drive Center for a possible dive/snorkel. I recognized the PADI shop as credible and went inside to check it out. Met Sean and staff and felt very comfortable. We immediately set up the dive and snorkel for my non diver wife.... More

We live in Honduras, have been to Roatan at least 10 times, and have been diving all over the island. Travis and his crew at Island Diving Center are at the top of all the shops. Not saying others are bad at all (we love the folks at Octopus Dive School), but the communication, flexibility, and training that the crew... More

I booked 2 dives through email correspondence with the dive shop owner, Travis Morin. He and his staff were friendly, professional, and honest. From emails to personal interaction they were great communicators. The shop is about a 20 minute ride from my NCL Cruise Ship Dock. Travis arranged transport for me. Both dives went well. Viviana was a great dive... More

We started with the idea of just doing an easy shore diving as I've been suffering from sinusitis that prevented proper equalization. We did as many as we could at the end. The dive center just open in West Bay and was so conveniently located closed to our resort. The equipment was in perfect condition (the bcd was super trimmable!)... More
