My family of four chose Bananarama to complete our diving certification Open Water courses. I emailed with Marco extensively prior to our trip, and felt confident we would be in good hands. Upon arrival on Roatan, we had a medical emergency with one of our larger group (10 people, only 4 diving) and had to re-schedule our dives. Marco was... More

We keep coming back because of the great staff. The boats and the gear are getting a little tired, but Marco and crew continue to make it work. Staff are all super friendly, they love diving and they want their guests to have the best and safest experience possible. The only thing that would make this experience better is if... More

We dove with this group for 3days They Patrick, out divemaster, kept things interesting and safe. After receiving our Lionfish Hunting license, he took us to a reef to practice our spear skills. Marco, the owner/manager keeps his equipment in excellent condition and schedules dive trips on his 3 dive boats.

Thanks to Bananarama dive centre staff for another great visit. Small groups, great guiding, excellent captains make this a super dive resort. We love the variety of diving, and the willingness of this group to cater to our personal dive style. Thanks for finding all sorts of tiny things for us, including juvenile sea horses, tiny sea hares, and daytime... More

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.
