My husband and I completed our in-water scuba certification here (after completing the online learning courses prior to leaving the U.S.). The staff was courteous, friendly and professional through all of our communication before arrival. While there, our instructor, Raoul, was perfect - he is an expert diver, enormously knowledgeable and very patient with new divers like us. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a trip to Belize and Ambergris Caye. I completed my PADI Open Water online course material before arriving in Belize, and then worked with White Sands Dive Shop to complete my Confined and Open Water Check dives. Elbert was excellent to work with online, as I planned my first trip to Belize, answering all my questions in... More

We took two snorkeling trips with White Sands. The trips were great and the guides were fantastic with our kids 7 and 4 (our little one only snorkeled briefly).

I came here to finish my Scuba Certification with my boyfriend and friend and appreciated the professionalism of this dive shop. The people here were friendly and informative and seemed confident and knowledgeable. The shop is well run and in a beautiful location (though I guess you could say that of all of Belize). The one thing that inspired me... More

In 26 years of diving, 23 years as an Instructor, I've worked with hundreds of dive shops around the world. Belize is amazing diving and I was here 10 years ago under different management. We had a great time then but this experience has been the single best dive shop experience I've ever had. Elbert, Efran, Jaun Carlos, Raul and... More

We stopped by the shop to get information on their operation. We were not prepared to dive that day. Carlos was very informative, knowledgable and a pleasant fellow to talk to. He gave us ideas for future diving and helpful local information. We will be diving with these guys next. Thanks Carlos.

I was doing my referral dive for open water certification. We checked out many dive shops and decided on White Sands as the people there were very patient and calming. We had a wonderful experience with everyone there. Dive masters, Raul, Juan Carlos and Sam were all very patient with us and so helpful. Jerry was so calming when I... More

I did my open water referral dive with white sands. I was nervous and going by myself. The whole staff was very helpful and encouraging. Raul was my instructor for both mornings and was very patient. We worked on the skills but had time to really enjoy the dives. I would definitely come back here.

I am a certified diver and my wife needed to do her referral dives. They allowed me to tag along and it worked out that another couple was doing the same. They made my wife's experience very comfortable and I got to do some exploring with my buddy. We were staying on the north end at X'tan Ha and they... More
