Visited from a cruise ship. The staff was very friendly. 2 tank dive. One deep and then chips, fruit and water before the shallow. I've been diving for decades and that shallow dive rated in the top 2 dives of my life. It was a beautiful sunny day, visibility was great and all the sea life came out to enjoy... More

This was booked as a cruise excursion and we really enjoyed the diving, the beautiful reefs and the overall operation. Very professional, boats were clean and well maintained. The dive master was very knowlegable and took very good care of us and our gear. This was not your usual cruise ship dive that is near the boat and not the... More

I just returned from spending a week staying at the Sunbreeze Hotel and diving with Belize Dive Connection. It was unusually windy during our stay, so we weren't able to get in as many dives as our group had hoped (and since we had paid for a dive package ahead of time, couldn't get our money back for dives we...

My husband and I took a Princess Cruise to the Western Caribbean. On our Belize stop, we had two snorkel options. We chose the longer experience in a group and were delighted. The dive boat from Hugh Parkey's Belize Dive Connection pulled up to the tender platform and loaded our excursion. They took us to a little island and began... More

Booked as excursion through Royal Caribbean, Liberty of the Seas. We were on-board the Pappa Joe, and taken 1st to Hugh Parkey's Belize Adventure Lodge on Spanish Look-Out Caye. Pros: -We were picked up early at the ship instead of tendering in. Cons: -Too many people! The boat was crowded with over 25 people. We broke up into three groups.... More

Most EXCELLENT. Did 5 days of diving, and each day was better than the last! Staff were EXCELLENT - Chris, our dive master, was the best. Soooo helpful, calm, professional, and way beyond knowledgeable about the dive sites. The shop was steps away from the hotel (Seabreeze), and they took care of EVERYTHING. This is the place to go if... More

Dive crew picked us up at the cruise ship, no tender required. Took us to their resort to fill out forms etc. and shortly we were on our way. "The General", boat crew, was very helpful, entertaining and all around welcoming. The dive crew was amazing, pointed out what they found & wrote names on slates. First dive was at... More

Everyone here on Ambergris Caye is so friendly. The shop staff and boat crew do what it takes to show you a good safe time. One day this week, we took the boat out to the Blue Hole. Very interesting, but now that I've done it I'm done with it. Two and one half hour boat ride each way. Good... More

We had booked this excursion through the cruise line since they picked us up from the ship and we didn't have to tender in to the city. There was 6 of us so the boat had plenty of room. Took us over to their dive shop where they picked up the gear and then we headed out to the reef.... More

Everyone at Hugh Parkey's made me feel safe. This was my first dive in the ocean and they were all really nice. We did this as an excursion through the Carnival Magic. The equipment was really nice. I brought my own mask but everything else we rented. They explained everything well and the dive master was nice. The only thing... More
