This was my fourth year of diving with Native Sons. I am continually impressed with the quality of dive masters, level of expertise, helpfulness of the crew members, equipment, but mostly the general warmth of the people. These folks are genuinely committed to providing the best diving experience possible. The two new dive masters, Heidi and Hannah, are great additions... More

Came down for a 9 day trip and stay in one of their cottages our back. The house out back is nice with hot water, great for showers after a dive! Staff is kind and helpful. I finished my certs for open water and they went above and beyond to properly fit me and make sure I was comfortable with... More

The staff and dive masters here treated everyone with the utmost respect and patience. I got my open water certification here, and was pretty nervous at first, but with the help of the instructors I caught on quickly and now am officially certified. Diving here was for sure a highlight of my life, and I'm extremely motivated to continue with... More

Pleasant dive company, we saw large groups enjoying beginner dive school as well as old timers, everyone was happy. Spoke to many people that had been coming for several years and it has become a home away from home!!

We've dove with Native Sons 3 out of the 5 times we've vacationed on Roatan and can say that out of all the places we've dove on the island (and we've dove with 3 other outfits in those 5 times) as well as other places we've dove in the world, that it is the best dive shop we've encountered. 1st...

Native Sons Dive shop... just a few steps across the street and you are at the water & their dive boat in Half Moon Bay. Very nice dive boat. The dive team members were a great group! Very helpful and accommodating to our group of 4. We took our 2 open water certified teenage boys for their first ocean dive... More

The folks there are professional, knowledgeable, and fun. I completed my Open Water Certification with instructor Alex and it was a pleasure to learn from her. They made us feel welcome in Roatan and the diving was amazing. Highly recommended!

This is a very well run and well located diveshop - it is in West End, but not in it's busy center, although really just 2 minutes walk from it. It is in the middle of Half Moon bay, in the garden at Chillies Hotel. I liked very much calm and professional organisation, which was just opposite to my experience... More

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
