NO HURRICANE DAMAGE IN ROATAN
Many guests have inquired whether Roatan suffered any damage from 2017 Hurricanes Irma, Harvey or Jose. Roatan experienced NO HURRICANES this year and hasn't had a major hurricane in 20 years. In fact, the last major Hurricane Mitch in 1998 that passed by was weakened enough that no lives were lost on Roatan and only minimal damage. Roatan is out of the path of major hurricanes and most hit land prior to arriving. In the last 165 years, only six Category 3 or higher hurricanes have hit Roatan. The hurricane activity in the Caribbean is September of each year and that is also one of our slowest months.
Island Diving Center is located in West End near the entrance and also at Grand Roatan Resort in West Bay. Our 5 Star dive shop is designed for the beginner to advanced scuba diver who wants a no hassle, no stress, care free, ultimate roatan scuba diving dream vacation on an island paradise. Come to Roatan, Honduras, and let Island Diving pamper you. For beginners, our Scuba School is a safe and fun place to learn and the perfect place to hone your your skills as an advancing diver. Roatan is the diving destination in the Caribbean and elsewhere. Roatan is a lush, green island and is part of a group of islands called "The Bay Islands." It is home to the 2nd largest pristine reef in the world, almost unlimited underwater visibility, warm seas, great culinary delights, a slow and easy way of life, and friendly people. It is located below the hurricane belt for added safety and peace of mind. We offer smaller scuba diving groups specializing in guided, personalized scuba diving, eco-travel, and scuba instruction.
For certified divers, Island Diving Center in Roatan can offer you your very own personal diving leader, or your personal PADI scuba instructor in your continuing scuba diving education. Island Diving Center offers PADI certified recreational scuba diving courses ranging from Scuba Diver to Master Diver, and professional scuba diving courses such as Divemaster and DSD Leader internships.
For those who want to learn how to scuba dive, we keep the number of students in our classes small so your training is personalized and at a pace you are comfortable with. Or, for those who want to learn how to scuba dive one-on-one with an instructor without any other students present, Island Diving Center can fulfill this desire as well. If you are not sure if you want to take a full course, then we can take you on a half day Discover Scuba Experience, where under the control and guidance of our expert staff, we will introduce you to Roatan's magical underwater habitat.......an experience of a lifetime! Although there is a minimum age limit to scuba dive, you are never to old to learn! We teach "low impact" techniques and philosophies during every program and make every trip an educational experience.
For snorkeling or free diving (APNEA) enthusiasts, Roatan is the place to visit. A quick snorkel out to the reef and enjoy our underwater wonderland with no restrictions other than your own personal limitations!
Safety, customer satisfaction, care and comfort are our primary concerns and goals. The biggest compliment you can give us is to recommend us to your family and friends!

From just laying on the beach sipping cold refreshing drinks and eating delicious food, to zip line tree canopy tours, horseback riding, paddle boarding, and deep sea fishing, just to name a few. We will pick you up at the airport, take you to your lodging, arrange for all the things you wish to do while on your vacation, take you everywhere you want to go on the island during your vacation, and return you to the airport for the sad trip home.
