North East: Subway Watersports

Subway Watersports is our 5-Star PADI Instructor Development Center and Dive Shop. Nestled in a lush and remote curve of the North Eastern coastline of Roatan within Turquoise Bay Dive & Beach Resort, it is an ideal location for dive groups and individual divers looking to log serious dive hours.

Subway Watersports can accommodate up to 50 divers on ten boats carrying 5 to 20 divers each. We offer 3 dives per day leaving at 8:45 am, 10:45 am, and 1:45 pm as well as an extended two-tank morning dive, with the option to return to the shop between tanks. We also offer one- or two-night dives each week with more available upon request.

The Turquoise Bay dive shop also hosts Divemaster interns and monthly Instructor Development Courses.

Besides scuba diving, we offer kayaking tours, snorkeling, fishing, water-skiing, tubing, banana boat, knee-boarding, wakeboarding and horseback riding.

Turquoise Bay is located a short distance away from Punta Gorda, where the Afro-Indigenous Garifuna first settled, offering the opportunity to experience Garifuna culture including Punta music and dance, and traditional foods such as coconut bread, machuca (mashed plantain and plantain soup), and Guifity – a popular rum, root, and herb drink not for the faint of heart!

Open every day from 8 am to 4 pm.
