Diving and the treasures to be found below the surface of the Caribbean Sea have been Roatan's main attraction for a long time. Caves and crevices, thousand-foot walls, wrecks, an airplane, abundant sea life, turtles, sharks, rays and the largest number of sponges in the Caribbean all make Roatan and the Bay Islands one of the most desirable diving destinations in the world

Barefoot Divers is located on Roatan’s south shore, just minutes away from Mary’s Place, one of Roatan’s most famous dive sites, with stunning volcanic-formed crevices and overhangs . Many of the other sites in our area feature dramatic reef walls that start in the shallows and drop off far beyond recreational dive limits.  The south shore offers vibrant reefs (nourished from nutrients brought by the easterly currents), and incredible biodiversity (from macro to pelagics)

Refreshers are a great way to tune up your scuba diving skills, which can get rusty quickly when you’re not diving regularly. To ensure that all divers as well as the dive lead have a safe and comfortable diving experience, certified divers who have been out of the water for twelve months or more should take a refresher course before participating in recreational dives 

Refreshers are a 2-hour confined water session focusing on refreshing basic in-water dive skills; with PADI ReActivate, basic dive theory is reviewed in advance via PADI eLearning (purchased separately from the PADI website) 


Barefoot Divers is certified by the PADI organization as a 5-Star Platinum Dive Resort and Instructor Development Center (IDC), the highest level of recognition attainable by the largest certifying agency in the world. This is awarded to progressive dive centers that excel in providing a full range of diver education programs, equipment selection, and experience opportunities and that actively promote aquatic environmental awareness

Brick Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands

Barefoot Cay is one pearl in a necklace of cays off the south shore of Roatan in the Bay Islands. The resort is positioned perfectly for the trade winds to create a tropical breeze over the entire Cay

Centrally located between Roatan's more touristed West side and less-populated East end, our locale provides the perfect jumping-off point for exploring and experiencing the island; ask our front desk staff to assist with arranging taxi service, or a rental car if you'd prefer to venture out on your own

Our step-on pontoon passenger ferry is available 24 hours a day to transit guests across the narrow 85' channel that separates the Cay from the Barefoot Divers building on the Roatan shore, so guests have convenient access to the island of Roatan and all areas of the resort
