We are very experienced divers who have been diving for many years and at numerous locations around the world. And we consider White Sands to be in our top 2 dive shops we have ever dove with. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating, and they really try to make your diving experience a positive and memorable one. They are... More

No matter what kind of diver you are, the dive masters here will make sure you have a great time. They are experienced, competent and knowledgable. It was 8 years since my last dive and they knew what I needed to have fun going under again. They have a great attitude and I have never felt so safe.

Highest recommendations. The staff was excellent, courteous and helpful and went out of their way to take care of us. The dive masters were very experienced and accommodating and took great care of us. They even went out of their way to organize a relaxing fishing trip for us. My dive master Raul was the best and the rest of... More

I visited Belize and had never ever thought about diving. My companions had become PADI certified prior to our trip, and I was like, "What's the big deal about diving?". After my discovery lesson and subsequent first dive with my awesome Dive Master Raul, I was hooked. Raul taught me buoyancy skills on my first dive that I now know... More

We had an opportunity to go with this shop when planning our trip to Belize and The Great Blue Hole. Turns out my buddy wouldn't complete his check out dives in time to dive the blue hole with me. However, the White Sands team was able to work their magic and get us a dive trip to the Blue Hole... More

We were staying at the Belizean Shores Resort and could see the dive flag from the hotel and decided to take a walk to see what they had to offer. My boyfriend is a diver and usually requires visits to numerous dive shops before he decides who to dive with. This is the only dive shop we visited!!! My boyfriend... More

I initially found White Sands Dive Shop through the PADI website-the dive shop at my resort was not 5 star PADI certified and White Sands was...so I decided to go with them instead of the resort dive shop-and it was a great decision. Firstly, the dive shop picked me up and dropped me off from my hotel dock for no... More

Those travelers who have visited San Pedro on Ambergris Caye know that there are literally dive shops every 40 feet along the beach. My wife and I found White Sands through Trip Advisor recommendations. I am certified and my wife and a young friend of ours were getting certified. The crew at White Sands are great. Some dive shops make... More

Thank You for the review. We like our little dive shop also. Being North on the island gives us access to the less visited, more pristine dive sites. If I had a choice I would slide my little shop even more away from the town's hustle and bustle. Thanks again for the review. More
