I did my open water referral dives with Eddie. He was a great teacher, and everyone at Native Sons was super helpful. They have $30 dives if you're staying at Hotel Chillies, and they have dives at 8:30am, 11am, and 2pm.

You would need to contact Native Sons directly. We went to Roatan in June of 2014 and we had to dive with another shop because the staff from Native Sons was on holiday.
