Explore Roatan’s famous reef with our 5-Star PADI IDC Dive Center, Barefoot Divers

Diving and the treasures to be found below the surface of the clear blue Caribbean Sea have been Roatan’s main attraction for a long time. Caves and crevices, thousand-foot walls, wrecks, an airplane, abundant sea life, turtles, sharks, rays and the largest number of sponges in the Caribbean all make Roatan and the Bay Islands one of the most desirable diving destinations in the world.To give our guests the best possible experience exploring Roatan’s amazing dive sites, we built our own high-end dive shop, Barefoot Divers, onsite at the resort. Our dive center is a PADI Certified 5-Star Instructor Development Center located at Barefoot Cay and offers guests good accessibility to Roatan’s premiere dive and snorkel sites. Barefoot Divers offers a full range of diving and training experiences and will take guests for dive trips to any of the superb dive sites surrounding Roatan. Dive gear can be rented and all levels of scuba instruction are available from Discover Scuba to Instructor. Try diving for the first time with a Discover Scuba Diving experience, or complete your full certification with the Open Water Diver course. You can also advance your education with a specialty certification or advanced course. See our 10 favorite Roatan dive sites!

A refresher should be completed for any  certified diving guest who has been out of the water for over twelve months, prior to joining the fun diving boats. A basic refresher is $85, and includes a confined water session and a dive.  If it’s been more than 3 years since the last dive, a full refresher is $150, or $110 with e-learning completed.  Please see our Barefoot Divers website for more information.
