    Great place to Dive. We hadn’t dove in 3 years since we got our dive qualification but Lorenzo gave us a good hands-on review and kept a close eye on us. The owner, Randy, a West coast USA expat was great to deal with through email and answered immediately no matter what time of day. Use their shuttle for cheaper and hassle-free transportation from the cruise port on the other side of the island. The taxi hustlers at the pier were not overly reliable and a bit sleazy. The coral was magnificent and the little town was really quaint, filled with interesting little restaurants and bars and the beach was small and intimate. Thanks Randy and Lorenzo.

    I was lucky to have Vivi and Portia for my open water and advanced open water certifications. Vivi is the perfect instructor for someone new into diving - she was patient, assuring, pushed me to believe in myself and made the learning adventurous. Portia trained me for my AOW and I could not be more thankful to have gotten her as my second instructor. She gave me the knowledge I need to continue to hone the skills that will make diving safe and fascinating. She explained things well and made me feel capable of going further. Greg was kind enough to snap some pictures of me and Vivi during my open water training. Rodger joined us on some dives/boat rides out and was also helpful in offering tips and advice. In general, the staff are wonderful and made me feel comfortable learning this challenging sport. I highly recommend the IDC and will continue to give them my business in the future.

    Perfect Shop for a one-day cruise-port trip. Ted was an attentive guide. My wife and I are newly certified divers, fall 2021. On a cruise, we looked at shops for our Roatan stop only the day before. Island Diving Center got back quick. We are so glad we found it and got to have a perfect day diving. For English-speaking international travelers / cruisers who want a trustworthy shop with great equipment and very fair pricing, stop wasting your time searching and go with Island Diving Center. They handled the equipment, boating, dive timing, and other details very professionally - we never felt surprised or unsafe and we asked a lot of questions, since we are new. Their website had clear information about price and features. We got a ride to and from the cruise port for just a little extra fee. Paid a PayPal deposit and the balance in cash on site after the dive. Did two dives. Base price $50 per dive, per person, plus a park fee and our port transfer, got our costs to about $240. Then just a tip: don't forget to tip professionals who are dedicated to good support and service. We dove with Ted, who was fantastic. Skilled and knowledgable - high PADI standards - and yet once he was comfortable with our skill level, he took us around great parts of the reef and let us just enjoy ourselves. He managed the depth and timing and details. We just had a blast. I don't know how all groups work at Island Diving Center but we were quickly greeted by friendly English-speaking folks. They got us equipment and set us out by the pool until the morning dive group circled back. The shop is part of a West End resort - pretty new and not commercial like Anthony's Key seems to be. Ted took us out on the boat after asking some questions to figure out what we wanted to do. It was only our second dive after open water training so we were glad he wanted to know a lot about our preparation and interests. He and the boat driver knew the sites inside and out. We had one other frequent diver on the boat with us. We saw so much sea life and beauty. We did two long, full dives. Then they watched the time and got us back to our ship with plenty of time to spare. We cannot recommend Island Diving Center enough and will certainly choose them again when we come back. Roatan is a treasure.

    I visited Island dive center while on a cruise ship with my son this last week (March 2 2020) My son did his 1&2 open water certification with them. I can’t express enough how great these people are, From the contacts through emails to the one on one training my son received. All the people that work here are top notch. I will definitely be returning in the future. And Highly recommend them to anyone visiting Roatan! Thanks Guys for awesome experience.
