Kirk made those not so comfortable in the water feel safe and they completely enjoyed themselves- they were so glad they did it. He... More

Craig (the operator) was the most knowledgeable individuals in the Belize diving market. Just... More

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

We dove 6 days with BAD (Belize Academy of Diving) in January and had a great experience. Craig and Tracey were great. We were the only ones there diving every day and they made sure to mix the dive sites up and make sure everyone's needs were met. You want to go 60', 100' no worries, We dove the first... More
