I'll admit it, I read but never write. But I just have to for these guys, they were so friendly and knowledgable!! 5 girls ranging wildly in ability. We did a snorkel trip to Hol Chan.

Craig builds confidence in new divers through his expertise and careful guidance. BAD is the perfect place to discover scuba!

Craig worked with my son on the Resort Course. It was his first experience with diving and it was an excellent one. They are very safety conscious...They canceled the second dive when it got too rough...Gio....George....Avi were all terrific...Tracey was great in the shop.... I love Belize!!!!!!!
