We dove with the dive shop out of Mesa, AZ - we had pretty much the whole boat and dove four days out of five - great dives despite incoming squalls. They knew how to time the dives. Came up in a nasty storm on day one - they dragged everyone out of the water in rough seas and no... More

We booked through the Norwegian Jewel to use credit provided by our travel agent and to take advantage of a direct pick up from the ship which anchors far away from the main port. This is a pricey dive (we took a substantially cheaper--$40pp less--independent dive in Roatán with Coconut Tree Divers) and we were annoyed that the "with equipment"... More

I recently returned from a week long dive trip to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, diving with this operation, whom I highly recommend to anyone seeking a great dive experience. We could have gone to the same dive sites with other dive operations, but the overall experience may not have been as wonderful. It was Israel and his staff at Hugh... More

Very friendly dive shop staff and crew. Boat crew was very conservative and safe. Once they were comfortable with our dive skills, they relaxed to let us have more freedom as long as we stayed within the parameters they set. Great about pointing out marine life. Great dive briefings. Boat was clean, fast, and well serviced. Dive sites were within... More

Very friendly and easy going but high focus on safety and giving you and easy and good dive. They were conservative on dive times but did a good job of pointing out marine life and giving us a variety of sites and experiences. They also were good at trying to get us to areas that dolphins had been seen in... More

Great experience diving with these guys 2 years in a row! Their boat met us at the Norwegian Jewel while we were on a cruise so we did not have to go in to Belize City. Then had snacks between dives and rum punch back at the shop when diving was done. Over and above service!

We were a large group of divers on some pretty rough seas the first few days of our trip and the dive crew was amazing, getting people in and out of the boats, taking cameras and fins off for us and getting us all safely back on the boat. Pablo, Philipee, Mike and the rest of the crew, you made... More

We were able to book the same day during low season. Snorkeling included the barrier reef (largest live reef in the world) and "shark and ray alley." The trip was about 2 hours and we saw plenty of fish, eels, and turtles. In Shark Ray Alley we saw Nursing Sharks and Southern Stingrays. I would highly recommend this adventure to... More

A large group of us traveled to the island with the priority being diving. The dive shop was recommended to us and I can definitely see why. Everyone from the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The dive masters were very polite and encouraged safety on every dive. The trip was a blast and we made some lasting friendships in...

We just returned from a week in San Pedro in which we took 25 people (18 divers) to HP Belize Dive Connection... To put it simply, we had an INCREDIBLE week! We would definitely look at returning to dive with them again and would highly reccomend them to anyone traveling to Belize! We did 11 dives total and loved every... More
