Cruise Ship Shore Excursions

Enjoy personalized service and exceptional diving and snorkeling at Barefoot Divers for your port call in Roatan. We’re the only PADI 5 Star IDC dive center on the same shore as the cruise ship docks at Mahogany Bay and the Port of Roatan dock in Coxen Hole. By taxi, our dive center is less than 10 minutes from Mahogany Bay and about 20-25 minutes from the Port of Roatan. If you’d like to try diving for the first time, we offer the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience for guests aged 10 and up (PADI medical questionnaire required).  Non-divers can enjoy colorful snorkeling, rent kayaks, standup paddleboards or a pedalboat, or indulge in our luxurious spa services.

Shore Excursion for Certified Divers

Our shore excursion is $110 per person and includes:

•  2 one-tank boat dives. Our boats leave the dock at 8:30am, 10:30am and 2pm, so you can select the dive times that work best with your port times
•  Rental equipment including BCD, regulator, wetsuit, mask, fins, snorkel, tank, and weights
•  Valet diving service – we will set up your BCD and regulator for you, change it over between dives and disassemble and rinse it when the dives are done. Just bring your personal gear on board and go diving!

If you’d prefer to do just one of the dives, the cost is $60 including gear.  Barefoot Divers will take care of all your Roatan diving needs. All you need to bring is your certification card!

You’ll also enjoy:

•  Towels, fresh fruit, and water on board the dive boats
•  Private hot-water showers and change facilities
