The Jackson family has been the pioneers of scuba diving not only in Roatan but as well in Honduras for over 40 years and now the family tradition carries on in the safe hands of Rino.

We are a boutique dive shop with two of the most experienced instructors/divemasters on the island who love to dive and have fun priding ourselves on our quality to offer a complete diving adventure, be it from macro photography or just getting started.

Our groups are small (max. 6 divers; courses max. 4 divers), we love specialty diving and our diversity of locations in our fast modern boat makes us different.

We offer a complete valet service; so you just turn up and enjoy your time with us. Call in, have a coffee and a chat. We have parking.
