The best part about bananarama was the dive sites are about 5 minutes away. Marco was extremely helpful and we... More

My first trip in October 2015, I went down to get my open water certification, but had not finished my online work. How nice was it of... More

Got certified by Lanita, very patient and knowledgeable. Did quite a few more dives with Zoe - she is awesome. Great diving experience for a first-timer. The night dive was an amazing experience. All the staff at the dive shop were great. Can't wait to go back.

Our second stay in west bay and we wanted to dive with the company that got us certified 2 years ago! Lanita was our first divemaster and she is wonderful. Throughout, safe, fun, and you can really tell she loves diving and exploring. I told her I was nervous from past experiences, and she checked on me throughout the dive... More

Mariela was extremely helpful in giving us information about the Advanced Open Water course by email and booking us before our trip. Our instructor Frank was amazing and... More
