► Do you take cruise ship guests?
Answer: Yes of course we take cruise ship guests diving. It depends a little on the number of resorts guests we have and on how many cruise ship guests want to come join us. We are a small boutique resort and we would like to keep the number of divers small as well.

How much does it cost ? $45 per dive or $80 for 2 dives and that includes equipment rental. Of course we also offer "Try Scuba" for people who are not certified and would like to experience the sensation of scuba diving in the wonderful underwater world of Roatan!
Transfers from and to the Cruise ship terminal are $10 per person.

► Do you have DIN adaptors?
Yes we have 7 DIN adaptors at the resort but we also have a quite a few DIN tanks at Tobri, so you do not necessarily need to bring your own adaptor.
► When is rainy season on Roatan?
Rainy season starts in November and ends in January. That doesn't mean that we can't go diving! On the south side where Tobri is located we actually have less wind during those months and therefore the diving is more tranquil. Rainy season in the caribbean doesn't mean that it rains the whole day every day like it does in some monsoon areas in Asia. Usually there are enough sunny days to work on your tan.
► What type of equipment do you have?
We have Mares Rover Pro BCD's with integrated weights and Mares Regulators. We strive not to have any equipment older than 3 years in our shop.

There is no beach on the property but our neighbours at Las Palmas have a beach which is only a couple of minutes walk away.

SSI stands for Scuba Schools Internation and was founded in Colorado in 1970. THey are the second largest scuba diving certification organistation after PADI. Your SSI certification card will be valid in all dive shops around the world. The training is very similar to other scuba certification orgnisations since SSI is also a member of the World Recreational Scuba Training Counsil. If you have your Open water certification from SSI, it is no problem to continue your advanced open water course with another organisation.
► Is there good macro life at Tobri Divers?
Yes there is! The south side and especially some of the dive sites near our Dive centre are very good for macro life / photography. Just have a look at the pictures we have been posting on our facebook or instagram page. There are a lot of different nudibranchs, sea slugs and other small life to be discovered.
