Russell was recommended by the bartender at our hotel, picked us up, and took us on a guided tour of Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. I had never snorkeled before and it was incredible -- beautiful area to explore and he was a great guide. He was funny, patient and very knowledgeable. We felt safe and well taken care... More

I wasted time at another dive operation and should have gone here first. While this shop is a little smaller than some of the major operators along the beach in San Pedro, the service was top-notch and there were no 'cattle boats'. I'm a dive instructor on another Caribbean island so I am very picky about who I will dive... More

We took about 10 dives with this group and Russ was an awesome divemaster/guide. He gave perfect instructions and checked on the group throughout the dives. And Shorty was superb at driving the boat. Would definitely use them again.

We did two great adventures with these guys: scuba and snorkeling adventure around Belize's spectacular reef and an all day fishing day (which included cooking the fish we caught on our own private beach). The staff is friendly, fun and ensures the utmost in safety. We would absolutely hang with Chet, Russell, Brian and Martin anytime and look forward to... More

Italy bound doesn't know what he is talking about. I have been all over the world diving. Belize is world class. Reef Adventures is a small and personal dive shop. I love it when we are the only people in the boat. They take care of big groups and small groups. Let Italy bound go away, and that will make... More

Thank you, Bradley, for the nice comments about your past diving experiences with Ched, Orlando and the Reef Adventures team. The small, personal attention is what many of our clients rave about - that and all the cool stuff there is to see, from lionfish to turtles. We are so glad you've enjoyed your trips with us and hope to... More

Spent a week diving (5 days of 2 tank boat dives) on San Pedro with Reef Adventures. We have had over 100 dives (I know that is nothing compared to many) and greatly looked forward to diving in Belize. Unfortunately, Belize diving does not come close to the diving in other areas of the Caribbean. Most marine life is scarce... More

Thank you for diving with Reef Adventures and for taking time to provide feedback. We’ve heard similar comments from other divers in the past about the “lack of color” on the Belize Barrier Reef. This is due to the type of algae that grow on our reef – it is a different color, not as bright as some other places... More

We went to Ambergris Caye for a "mancation" with 10 guys and went scuba diving 3 days among other things. We had everything set up in advance with Reef Adventures and met Ched and he and his team were great. He is very personable and his team takes great care of getting you ready for each dive. The dives were... More

We arrived in Belize for the first time with our 2 grown children. We wanted them to experience the wonders of scuba diving and what a great place to learn. The dive instructor was wonderful. Padi Certified. The kids (adults) both came out with the same love we have. Shortly after we took our first 2 tank dive together with... More

While my wife and I were vacationing in Ambergris Caye we were recommended to use Reef Adventures for any diving, fishing or snorkeling adventure. We stopped by that afternoon and met the owner, Ched and then signed-up for a snorkeling excursion the next day. His rates were lower than the resorts and we had the benefit of his personal attention.... More

I had planned a trip for my son and I to fish for a few hours just inside the reef. He's 9 and I did not want to look him in to a full or half day affair. After being scammed by a young man on the island who took our deposit money and didn't pick us up, I promptly... More
