Comments Little about us, Caribbean divers, 500+ dives, Multiple locations, Always Private Charters Only.

Roatan: three dives a day, five days of diving. Private charter of a boat, Captain, Boat hand and Dive Master. (2400.00 - US)

Diving: This was some of the best diving I have every experienced. Quality Time Divers (Watch out for the counterfeit company) was one of the best operations I have ever worked with.

Gareth and Meghan were amazing! The whole time they worked on our schedule. Where we went, when we went was all up to us. Gareth taught me more about my diving and how to improve it in five days than any dive instructor has in 20+ years of diving. Simply amazing time. They even cleaned our gear for us after the day of diving. That is a first for me and I am a little picky about my equipment.

Lots of Micro life, shrimp, crabs, turtles, rays, lobsters. We did two ship wrecks and one drift dive on the end of the island. 15 total dives. One of the best dive experiences I have ever had.

Accommodations: Rented a condo from West Bay Lodge. The service was excellent, and the accommodations were acceptable. First day there was a little tricky as we did not have internet in the first condo they placed us in. We are business owners and internet is a must have for us. They made the correction the next day and all was great. Food at West Bay Lodge was very good not sure I would say excellent but better than average.

Island: Not a big fan of the island. Seemed very dirty and the dogs that needed food on the streets was very distressing for me. As a huge animal lover, it broke my heart. I understand we are visiting an island that has a huge variance between the haves and have-nots. The people are friendly, hardworking and very accommodating but the island needs major upgrades in Sewer and water systems. When it rains the smell of sewage is sometimes overwhelming. Over all the diving makes the visit worth the trip but I hope the government understands what a gem in the making they have and invest in the basic infrastructure.
