This place was on the west end of the island and took a while to get there. The roads are littered with potholes to the point that it is ridiculous to drive. We had a taxi from the port and was very nice. Once we got the dive shop we were kind of taken aback by the looks of the... More

Couldn't be more enthusiastic about a diveshop. They are lovely people who know the sites, safety guidelines and will make you feel like part of the community. Beautiful diving too!

I had a pleasure of spending the week diving at Native Sons last week. I did few fun dives, a night dive and my PADI Rescue course. I was paired up with Heidi, - shout out to Heidi! - who was a phenomenal scuba instructor. She prepped me for the course and was extremely competent in skills and instruction. Rescue... More

Thanks to these people we had the best family vacation ever! I contacted a few diving joints in West End, and Native Sons were the first, and friendliest of them all. We showed up one morning and within two hours they enabled us to dive all together: myself and my daughter (18) who were open-water certified a year ago, my... More

I started diving here with one of Native Sons instructors, Eddie, he open water certified me which was an amazing experience. I really grew to like diving in the short time it took me to become open water certified, all of the Native Sons staff made me feel very comfortable and at home while diving and learning. Now that I... More

I did my open water and advanced certification with Native Sons and after 4 years I came back to visit and they remembered me! They are some of the most personable and kind people I have ever met. The diving in Roatan is fantastic but Native Sons makes it even more enjoyable!

I did my open water course with Native Sons and had the best time. The instructor was super careful and patient, which made my first diving experience way easier than I thought (I was really nervous about it!)! I then did many dives with them and always felt safe. Each instructor was always happy to show us all the underworld... More

Great place. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Very clean and organized dive shop. With a great place to eat also on site. Right infront of hotel Chillies. Best place to stay and the price is really good also.

We really enjoyed our time diving with Native Sons. They were easy going but well organized. They gave good safety briefings and the dive masters were always pointing out cool stuff underwater. As a newer diver I felt very comfortable and safe and still had a blast underwater. We will definitely dive here again on return trips to Roatan!
