where to start ... these people are simply horrible in every way ....first they have no water , shade, rinse soap or other useful things on the (canoe) they call a boat . ok now they have that NO GOPRO policy because they would attract the sharks to close to the divers because of the magical sensor they have !...

Just got back from a trip to Roatan. While I enjoyed the dive be aware that this shop has a no "Go-Pro camera policy which they state is for safety. Now while I can see where they may not want people sticking them out on poles etc, holding it as a camera would normally be held should not be an... More

We were warned by our Roatan dive shop that this experience was 'rustic'. It was-- but we knew what we were getting in to. You get into your gear at the dock and they help you get into the dive boat. There were 14 of us and we were pretty crammed into the boat. No room to really move around... More

The dive itself is good. It was arough ride out to the dive spot. The sharks are obviously conditioned to come for the food. You spend 15 minutes watching them circle around. It's great for the first 5 minutes then it gets boring. After they feed the fish, they let you come out from the wall and look for teeth... More

The Waihuka dive center is the only operation that runs this Shark trip. The owners spent three years diving the site to 'prepare' it for the shark experience. It's more like a show -- you drop down 70 feet and then either kneel or stand in the sand and watch all of these large female caribbean reef sharks come in... More

The tanks leaked and there were no safety checks of any kind. The captain yelled at everyone on the boat who asked questions and was cruel to one diver who expressed some uncertainty about the dive ("get in or sit here and wait"). He did nothing to help the diver who lost her weight belt due to the rough waters... More

Our group had a great Black-Yip shark dive. We watched 15-17 Large reef sharks feed on dead fish while sitting on the bottom 10' away. Some of the lasger females were 10-12' in length. This is one Roatan attraction well worth the $$$. Highly reccommended. A+++ Cannot take a GoPro camera was the only negative..I guess they want to sell... More

We decided to take a morning away from Coco View and go dive with the Sharks. I am a huge Shark Lover and thought this would be a great time- AND I WAS RIGHT!!!!!

By the time you buy the video, it's a little pricey but still worth it. We were certainly not disappointd in the number and size of sharks. I've seen plenty of sharks while diving 1 or 2 at a time but this was my first "shark dive". I will have to say that it was pretty interesting seeing 15-20 sharks... More

You know, I had mixed feelings about this based on some of the reviews that I read. I finally decided that just because a few people may have had a bad experience does not mean everyone will. I have dove with sharks before at The Brother Islands in the Red Sea off of Egypt coast. I loved that alive feeling... More
