Small is Good.

I am an experienced (I never say 'advanced') diver with 1000+ dives. I prefer to dive with a DM and a small group. Tylls offers exactly what I wanted/needed. I was in West End for over a month and dove about twice a week with them. They became friends and I enjoyed every dive. They took great pains to make sure dive conditions were safe and even when I was the only diver, we went diving. There are bigger dive shops in West End, but I doubt if there are any better.

just a review

K.. looks a bit odd to give all staight A's, but hear me out.
Owner Uwe dont messes around with his stuff, its good, well maintained and he as an ingeneer and instructor knows what its about. You can expect close to new regulators, same in bcd's and tanks, those 3 are for me most important. Altho i almost forgot the compressor here which is well.. do i need to repeat?
Uwe and that lovely danish girl Dorte provide next to the staff a very laid back time.. I got taken care of in a personal, friendly and almost family like way. And since ive been diving with plenty outfits in Roatan, mostly in west end but also in west bay and with some of the bigger resort, my opinion of there way of how they are operating is 3 kisses, cream and sugar on top..
Guests are always welcome in the shop, invited to come along to dinner or a drink, to be part of the ongoing scrabble, nick your neigbor (friendly version) and what not. Your not just diving, you are there guest;
I'm going back there and with 1500+ dives logged, that's a first.

The price? It's almost a joke, they will go up pretty soon im sure, so better take advantage of that cause shops like this are hard to find.

Safe diving,

Ron

Fiascos

The level of staff experience and dive leading varies from DM to DM (or instructor), but the professionalism and importance to safety does not. The shop is always welcoming and has an endless supply of coffee (which helps on the early mornings). The gear is well maintained and serviced regularly. The dive sites are excellent, with maps of many of them on the wall for you to see before you go. The shop owners are experienced and will always work with you to make your diving an enjoyable experience, making sure that both your program and your instructor are a good match. I looked at all the other shops before I chose to come to Tyll's. Being an instructor, I knew what to look for and I found everything and more here.

Good times...

Very laid back setup, but focus on quality and safety. Love the fact that it's small and personnal. Location could be better if it were on the beach, but the extra 20 steps is still very good! Plus the Turtle across the street is close and allows for quick drinks while chatting or playing cards after a nice day diving... Looking forward to go back!

pirate style

I wish they were on the waterside ! I think the shop isn't much to look at from the outside but when you are on the inside its a very laid back shop with an emphasis on safety and quality of diving.It's really friendly. Smaller groups and the full variety of diving Roatan can offer.
