Comments Coconut Tree Divers is in the town of West End on Roatan. They are run by a husband and wife team that make you feel extremely welcome. The boat is spacious for divers and equipment and can accomodate up to 16 divers. There was a maximum of 10 divers when I was there. They also have a full service classroom and certify many levels of divers. The divemasters are very friendly and safety concious. They will give you a profile and time limit for the dive and ask that you stay within eyesight of the group. If you wander they will herd you back but they are not tapping on their tanks constantly to keep the group tight and bumping into each other. They also point out a lot of sea life during each dive, whether it be small or big. Diving was very comfortable and relaxed with this outfit. They are one of the best bargains on Roatan having charged $15 per dive, including equipment.

I stayed at Seagrape Plantation which is a short walk from Coconut Tree Divers. Accomodations were very clean and comfortable with a hammock hung on the front porch for afternoon naps. Everything in West End was in walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping along the main road. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip.
