We did not take a camera this time, but I did look around.  The boats are
small and fast but they didn't have tanks for the cameras. Most rides were
only a few minutes from their docks.  Their onshore facilities looked very
good and seperate rinse tank and photo support.

This resort seems to fly a bit under the radar, but it is an excellent
resort and dive facility.  All Barefoot Divers' dive masters are actually
instructors and if we had needed any extra classes, these guys have a great
set up for training with a class room and very capable instructors.  The
shore diving is limited because the resort is behind the reef.  However,
they have an great "warm up" dive site off their dock with some
obstacales and a small boat. Perfect for adjusting weights and checking out
the gear. Roatan diving is nice and this shop was as good as any we have
been with before.  Their boats can be wet if it is rough, which it was, but
they are fast and many sites are close by. They will also take you to your
requested site. I casually mentioned Calvin's Crack as a site we had
enjoyed on our last trip and the next day the seas were calmer and we went
up there and did the dive.  They also offered us a trip to the West Side
one day at no extra charge. We dove the west side and had lunch at a beach
bar. The resort van then picked us up and the captain and instructor took
our gear and the boat back againist the waves to the dock. We had two jr
divers with us (my daughter being one), both very capable. This did dictate
some of our dive profiles and depths. I don't feel we missed anything as
most eveything in Roatan can be found in <60 feet. Luc (our leader) and
Christian (our captain) were excellent. Luc was very good at spotting small
life, including pipe fish, sea horses, and Nec Crabs, which look like
weeds. Most surface intervals are on the dock since the sites are so close.
You can pick any of the three dive each day. They also do a night dive, but
we did not chose to do that one on this trip. 
Lastly, the dive resort is 5 star. Probably the best maintained property I
have ever stayed in and the service is excellent. The only complaint is
that breakfast is a little slow, but everything is made fresh. We just had
to come a little earlier than a buffet would require to get to the 8:30
dive. The Villas have a pretty complete kitchen as well, so it is easy to
go to the store and pick up a few items if you don't want to do the meal
plan. Also, they will gladly take you where you would like to go and you
can take a cab back.
We look forward to a return trip in the near future!
