Meet Your Mentors


At Roatan Divers, we have created a dive team with years of experience from around the world. With some of the most diverse and experienced PADI Instructors in the area, our team knows what it takes to mold our candidates into future Divemasters.

Our Senior Instructors, Alex and Natalia, are largely in charge of the PADI Divemaster program, but rest assured you will work with all of our instructors during your internship. You will also learn from our manager, Russ, to learn more about working in the industry and how dive operations work. Our instructors have taught all over the world, and believe that true experience comes from working in different dive centers, dive environments and cultures. Multilingual, knowledgeable and caring, there’s no better team to introduce you to the wonderful world of Roatan scuba diving!


We speak: English, Spanish, Swedish, Japanese, German, French, Danish, Norwegian, Basque and Catalan.
