As cruise ship employees, we see a lot of places and interact with a lot of tourism professionals. My friend and I went on a diving excursion with Hugh Parkey's team and they were wonderful! All of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Not only did I feel very safe with the quality of the dive equipment and the expertise... More

The crew was very efficient and accommodating with switching tanks and handling our equipment. The dive masters were very attentive. They used rather large underwater etch-a-sketch-like devices and located and identified lots of different species for us, including a nurse shark (my first). On our second dive, we were going to spear a lionfish to feed to a green moray... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Sunbreeze Hotel a couple of years ago and had a great time diving with HPDC. We went back to dive with HPDC because of... More

Most importantly, I am the ONLY person on this trip that did a full 3 minute safety stop on both of our dives. For most of the dive we swam in circles below the boat. 2nd, our dive sites were just feet apart, therefore covering same territory. Not what I expected for Belize and and "award winning" dive company. I... More

We were supposed to go to an atoll with this company on our day docked in Berliz but as there were only five of us diving we were disappointed to discover the night before that it essentially wasn't worth their while to do the long trip with only us. Our disappointment was somewhat diluted by the $50 partial refund and... More

Had 2 outstanding dives with Hugh Parkey's Dive Connection. Boat picked us right up from the ship, no cruise ship tender to deal with. Quick sign up at "their island" sign the paperwork, some folks got gear that needed it and we were off. Big boat, 20 divers but they split us into 3 groups with our own dive masters... More

We were picked up by the dive crew from our ship (Carnival Splendor). Each member of the crew introduced themselves to each person on the excursion. We were then taken to the dive shop where we were fitted with equipment. On the trip out to the first dive site, we assembled the equipment and the crew offered help if/when needed.... More

Said I was going to write 2 yrs ago when we visited, sorry. Excellent dive experience . Can't say enough. I'm certified my son did beginner course again. These guys were great. Guided tours through reefs wow. Did evening shark feeding also. That was interesting. Especially when Morey eels arrived. Sorry I don't remember dive team members names in June... More

I would strongly recommend anyone visiting Belize to scuba to... More
