He was very patient and went out of... More

Buzz pointed out various marine life during the trip and... More

Unfortunately the reef appears to suffer from over fishing although you can see nurse sharks, turtles and remoras. All the dive sites are just a few minutes from the pier. Normal... More

If you want to dive and feel safe doing it at Ambergris Caye - this is the place. Very professionally run establishment that will take care of dive equipment problems and give you a great experience. I would recommend this place to new divers especially. I am an advanced diver and liked it.

Once again Elbert and his staff made our diving experience in Ambergris very enjoyable as much as unforgettable - They accommodated their schedule to ours so we were able to dive as we had planned - Thanks White Sands - we'll be back for sure in years to come.. Jorge & Silvia
