Roatan is home to the Mesoamerican Barrier reef, the 2nd largest reef system after the Australian Great Barrier Reef. The island is famous for the biggest variety of coral and sponges in the whole of the Caribbean as well as a variety of Caribbean marine life such as; rays, nurse sharks, reef squid, barracuda, jacks, angel fish, butterfly fish, schools of tangs, moray eels and a variety of macro life.
Due to it’s remote location and private mooring lines, Subway Watersports allows you to experience the freedom of being the only divers at your dive site.
Subway Watersports is also one of the few operators on the island that offers an alternate dive location on the south side of the island in case of bad weather. This enables our excursions to go ahead no matter what the weather!
The main attraction in Roatan is the spectacular coral reef, the Mesoamerica Barrier Reef, which is the second largest barrier reef in the world! Only a few minutes away by boat you will reach breathtaking pristine dive sites with drop offs, canyons, swim throughs and an amazing variety of coral and marine life. We have dive sites that suit all levels of experience and you will have time to do two 60-minute dives.
You will take a 30 to 40 minute drive from the ship’s dock to your starting point. The drive will take you along a very scenic route with spectacular lookouts over the reefs on the north shore of Roatan. The driver will stop for pictures on request.
Once at the dive shop, you will be introduced to your Divemaster guide and set up with whatever equipment you require. You will be given a break in between each dive to come back to the dive shop and use the facilities or grab a quick snack or drink.
After your dives, you will be given the option to head back to the cruise ship, or, relax and enjoy some time beside our swimming pool, grab a bite to eat or a drink at our bar and restaurant, or relax and enjoy some peace and quiet on our private white sandy beach!
The beach bar and on site bar & restaurant offer drinks, tropical cocktail, snacks and meals.
We charge US $95 per person, including bus transport from and to your cruise ship dock. That also includes tanks and weights.
Full equipment rental, including a BCD, regulator, wetsuit, mask, snorkel & fins, is $35 for the day.
Nitrox is $10 per tank.

I just wanted to convey our sincere thanks to you and your staff. We came in on the Carnival Legend and were so pleased to see Dennis waiting for us. After a wonderful drive across your beautiful island with some points of interest noted to us by Dennis, we arrived at your shop on the Turquoise Bay resort. What an exciting adventure.
Your staff at the shop was quick and professional and it wasn’t long before we were in the boat ready to go. Your staff even came up with a battery for my wife’s dive computer which had gone dead. We were concerned with time and wanted to go shopping so we chose to do only one dive. In a flash Kenroy had us heading towards our destination. Vanessa gave us a briefing and made sure we were all ready to go. We went to the Labyrinth. Vanessa and Jason the intern took us down and we had a great time winding through the shallow canyons. The coral formations and the fans were the most abundant and alive I have ever seen, and I have been diving 20 years.
Roatan is a true gem as is Subway Water Sports. Near the end of our dive we even got to see a large nurse shark resting in the coral. With the exception of having to dive so early because Carnival Cruise Lines scheduled our ship to make port at 6am, I don’t think I could have been happier. Your staff was completely at our disposal and everything we needed or wanted was literally there before we could ask. I know of no better referral than word of mouth and I will recommend your shop to anyone and everyone. I will also repeat my business as your customer. As soon as we can, my family will return and this time we are staying on the beautiful resort your dive shop is located on. I can not wait to see you all again.
