Loved diving with Native Sons! The dive master team was professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. They were attentive but encouraged diver independence. It's a well organized shop. We got out to interesting and varied dive locations. Would definitely recommend Native Sons, whether you're just learning or experienced or just getting back into scuba diving!

People ask me why I come back to Roatan each and every year, well it is beautiful, and of course there is Native Son's dive shop. They are knowledgeable, but more importantly they make it fun from the beginning to the end, making sure that everyone is welcome and relaxed. My girlfriend was having some issues, but Alex, Eddie and... More

Loved every minute of my PADI course. Roatan is a beautiful setting and the diving was incredible. Green Turtles, Sting Rays and a ton of other fish. Highly recommended. Alex was a great teacher!

My wife and I scheduled our Roatan trip to get our PADI OpenWater certification. After looking at dive shops around Roatan, Native Sons won our business based on their responsiveness to inquiries, schedule flexibility, and price. Upon getting to Native Sons, we met our dive instructor Eddie, who was ready for us at the scheduled time. Eddie was a great... More

This was probably the most laid back diving experience we have ever had. We arrived on our first day to "check-in" as we usually have to do with other shops to fill out reams of paper work and pay up front. They looked at us like we had 3 heads and said, no just show up before our first dive... More

My husband and I just spent 6 weeks in Roatan at Chillies Hotel diving with Native Sons. Alvin and Mich run a great shop, always mindful of the environment, divers ability and safety. We have dove with them now for the last 4 years. The staff have helped us improve our diving and we are always learning more. I wouldn't... More

Native Sons is the best! I have done about 70 dives with them over a 4 year period, and wouldn’t consider diving with anyone else while in Roatan. The location is perfect, a short distance from restaurants and stores, and right across the street from Sundowners palapa bar (A great place to watch the sunset after a day of diving).... More

I always enjoy diving with Native Sons and consider Alvin, Mish and Eddie to be friends. It's not only about great equipment, great boats, great dive spots and capable staff, but to me it's about the friendliness and patience that they always show you. I've been to other businesses, and there are a lot of good ones, but I always... More
