My family and I had a great experience doing the resort scuba certification with Raul. He was patient and well-versed in diving. His instructions were clear and my three teenage sons felt very comfortable with him. He was sweet and personable and we had a lot of fun when he took us out on three different dives. We were guests... More

I just returned from Belize and had a wonderful experience with White Sands. The crew was fantastic, friendly, fun and helped ensure we were comfortable with everything (it had been 10 years since last diving.) Elbert was very responsive to emails before we arrived in Belize. Once there, his guys took great care of us! We stayed at Las Terrazas... More

This was my first time diving in open water since receiving my PADI certification and I couldn't have picked a better shop or had a better dive master for this experience! Chino and the rest of the guys were extremely helpful and a ton of fun to be around. My boyfriend and I will definitely be coming back to have... More

The whole staff was great - friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating to all our needs and requests. Chino led our scuba dives, while Buzz took great care of the snorkelers. Highly recommend the Mexico Rocks snorkel trip.

Fantastic.We took three excursions with these guys during our week on Belize and all were great. Snorkeling, diving, fishing and beach BBQ. All wonderful and the staff was outstanding. The owner Elbert could not have been more accommodating with information and help with my diving (I am certified but had not been diving for over 10 years). His team was... More

The whole staff was extremely nice and helpful every step of the way. My group had Raul as our tour guide and Raul was very understanding of the different levels among the group. He led us to amazing spots and we also dove with sharks and rays. All in all it was a great experience and I would recommend it... More

My husband loves to dive and I am certified but not an avid diver. It had been awhile since my last dive and this was only my 3rd dive overall. Chino took really great care of me and made sure I was comfortable at every moment. He was really patient with me and ensured that all divers had fun. I... More
