Roatan Beginner SCUBA Diving by Boat Excursion is available for cruise ship passengers arriving at the Port of Roatan Coxen Hole and Mahogany Bay.

Your fun day starts right at the ship pier where the staff will pick you up and take you to the dive shop. The drive is approximately 30 minutes. Your instructor will get you checked in and then the adventure begins. The dive shop is a 5-star PADI-rated site and a National Geographic-ranked operator as well.

Your Discovery SCUBA Diving Excursion is also known as DSD, Beginners or Resort SCUBA - it gives you a feel of what diving is all about but does not involve hours of classroom or certification afterward. The first part of the day is a 30-minute theory course where you will learn the basics of how to dive, the equipment involved, and watch a video.

After your course, you will get into some shallow water with your instructor to practice the basic skills you will use for your real dive. Your instructor will be supervising you the entire day. Up next your guides will take you on a short boat ride to a reef where your dive will take place.

You will enjoy about 60 minutes of exploring the beautiful undersea world at a maximum depth of 40ft. After the dive, you are bound to be hooked! This dive may count toward future Open Water Diving certification.

Once the dive has come to an end, your guide will take you back to the Turquoise Bay beach resort where you can enjoy the facilities including a swimming pool, lounge chairs, fresh water shower, etc., and be able to relax. You are welcome to purchase food or beverages from the restaurant before you head back to the cruise terminal. If there is anyone in your group that would like to ride along to the beach, enjoy the resort facilities and wait for the divers to return, may purchase the add-on Beach Only - see the order form.

This is a must do! If you have ever thought of giving scuba a try, Discover scuba was amazing! Only negative was we ended up wasting over an hour to go back to the cruise port, waiting on some late arrivals to finish.

This was our first dive ever. Our dive instructor was great and answered all questions and concerns. Out dive master was wonderful and kept checking to make sure we were calm and doing ok. We saw tons of colorful fish and beautiful coral. I would definitely recommend this excursion for anyone wanting to learn to dive.

This was my favorite excursion by far. I have tried scuba diving before and completely freaked out. This instructor was super patient and gave very good instruction. Our family of 4 had an instructor all to ourselves. The reef was beautiful! We got a 30 min dive up to 40 feet. The rest of the time we relaxed on a beautiful beach.

We were short on time because we were waiting for another cruise ship to get in before we left the port area, so that was unfortunate to lose time like that, but when we got to the place where we were going to dive, they made sure we would still have a lot of time in the water. The expert diver was amazing. He walked us through it and while on the dive, he pointed out various fish and coral. Overall a great experience and the reef was beautiful.

We went in mid December, had a GREAT time! A little bit of a ride from the cruise port, but not a bad journey at all. The instructors were great, very friendly, went at a great learning pace and answered all of our questions! The reef was beautiful and there were so so many fish that we go to see up close! The only con I have is more of the other people on the excursion rather than the excursion itself. The rest of the group arrived a bit late and had not filled out any paperwork ahead of time so in waiting for them- we lost any after scuba beach time we would have had, which was really a shame because the beach resort area was beautiful.

What a fantastic introduction to Scuba diving!! We are a family of 5 ranging from 10 to 49 years old, and this was absolutely the highlight of our vacation!! My wife is a certified diver but this was the first time scuba diving for the rest of us (ages 10, 20, 21, and 49). Arturo and Darrel were absolutely amazing instructors, and were very informative and attentive. They made sure we all were comfortable with one step before we moved to the next, and took extra time as needed with whoever needed it. I was apprehensive having a 10 year old with no experience at all but both of the divemasters were watching him very closely throughout and he never had any trouble. One of my daughters had to surface for a few minutes and Darrel took her to the top and got her settled and then rejoined us. We never felt any pressure to do anything we weren't prepared to do and were absolutely thrilled with the service we got. The driver was easy to find when we got off our cruise boat (he called me by name when I approached) and they were prepared to take us back to the port as soon as we were ready after diving. This was our first experience with Shore Excursioneer and it was a great one. Will not hesitate to use them again.

At first, I was scared, but the Dive Instructor made it soo easy to understand and practice that I felt confidence when it was time to do it for real at open ocean. It was a magic experience, been able to see the underwater word and all the marine life. I´m glad, I booked this excursion.
