We are a family owned company, with its headquarters located in Mount Pleasant, Roatan, Honduras. We are a fuel wholesaler, retailer, and bunker supplier. We focus on service, quality and convenience, and we work hard for it!
At Bay Island Petroleum we are equipped with a gas station, plus a mini mart, an automobile servicing station, two fuel docks, a marina, three fuel barges, and four fuel-trucks for delivery services.
In 2011, we began to supply fuel to Roatan's automobiles, through the BIP Gas Station, and to vessels such as cruise ships, fishing boats, yachts, tanks and more at their fuel docks and at sea. Since then it provides quality gasoline and diesel fuel for commercial and marine use throughout the entire Bay Islands of Honduras.
As you pull into BIP locations it’s likely you’ll see fishing boats unloading their catch, loading supplies to head out to the fishing grounds, or undergoing maintenance. This is mainly because Honduran waters are known over the world for its high quality seafood. Our BIP family has been in the fishing industry since the 1960's, and we proudly carry on this tradition today.
Our BIP family is also devoted to protecting the beautiful island's natural resources, and therefore it operates fully Licensed by SERNA, Honduras' environmental protection agency.
