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

My friends and I started out with the Discover SCUBA class in the pool at Las Terrazas. They made us feel SO comfortable our first time diving and learning how to use the equipment.

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

Ambergris Caye Belize should be one of the "must visit" destinations on any diver's list. On Ambergris Caye there are many fine dive shops and it would be hard to go wrong picking one. However, there is just something special about White Sands. The shop is a little north of "the bridge" but that shouldn't stop you from booking with... More

I had a great time with Whitesands. They were friendly, approachable, helpful and explained every part of our trip; where we were going, what we'd see, why we followed certain procedure. My overall impression was how lovely they were. Buzz was a great snorkel guide and had a genuine respect for the sea, the environment, the wildlife laws of Belize... More
