The five of us became certified this week after completing the e-learner PADI course. We spent 1/2 day in the pool, then ended up doing 6 dives over the week. We felt very safe and in very good hands with Raul. He took the safety of our family very seriously and continued to review skills throughout the dives. We would... More

I signed up for my first dive experience, as a gift to my husband, it was his birthday, and he loves to dive, so, I thought what the heck! Sam was our instructor, and he did an amazing job preparing us for our dive. We headed out, I reluctantly did the over the edge drop in, the rest is history!... More

the staff working the shop was friendly. however unfortunately the dive master i was with (can't recall his name ) was a mean spirited man. I wrote an amazing review for the resort (las terrazas), that the dive shop is located by, however ant seem to do the same for the dive shop. It seemed to me if you are... More

I love these reviews they keep me sharp. I’m very sure no one at our shop would ever tell a diver to show up at 9am. We depart at 9 and ask our divers who have not been diving with us previously to be here at 8 and after that they can arrive at 8:30 for our 9 o’clock departure,... More

I spent two weeks in the area and decided to get my open water diver certification with white sands. Had the best time doing so - Carlos, my instructor, was absolutely wonderful and I felt very safe the whole time. The whole team is great and I had such a good time with them! Now at the end of our... 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.

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
