Patojo's was an overall awesome experience. Low key, yet professional in every way. They only take out smaller groups and they will take you where ever you want to go. Patojo greeted us at the shop and gave us a short briefing before going out with Anthony and boat driver Dave. They got everything ready for us, all we had... More

When it comes to diving Ambergris, there are none higher than Patojo! High praise you might ask... well, when we were getting out of our taxi the person sharing the cab saw we were located close and said 'oh, I've been diving w him for 15 yrs.' Uhmm, me & my diving compadre thought. Then we bumped into to some... More

We have been diving with patojo for over 8yrs and 10 trips to San Pedro , they have become family to us. Patojo certified both my kids in open water and now advanced. They have been diving since they were 10 with him so they are very comfortable. The quality of service can not be matched by anyone. Antonio was... More

With little to advertise himself I stumbled upon Patojos while staying at Ocean Tide resort across the road. The entire operation was brilliant. Patojo strikes the delicate balance between first and foremost having a safe dive, yet still allowing enough room to explore and really have a fun dive. Too many other dive masters on the island seem to have... More

Patojo is a phenomenal instructor. He led me through my PADI open water diver certification and was very calm and patient throughout. There was no hurry, we moved at the pace I was comfortable with. He is very knowledgeable about diving and the island, Ambergris Caye, as a whole. I dived with him more than twice a day nearly every... More

Little background on myself as a diver - I've done ~130 dives in Caymans, Bonaire, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Panama, Jamaica, BVIs, Cozumel and now Belize. Did 14 dives there in six days. We used one other dive operator besides Patojo for the Blue Hole (and we liked Patojo way more). On Patojo - His operation is awesome, extremely low key... More

I dove with Patojo and Amigos Del Mar. Amigos was absolutely terrible (see review). Patojo was awesome!! He is super laid back but also on top of things. He dives because he loves it. I had a great time diving with him and would do my best to only dive with him on any future trip to San Pedro. Some... More

Patojo is the best. He is a real dive master. His knowledge of the reef and local conditions is unsurpassed. The best part.... it's like it's a secret. 5 two tank dives in 7 days and we were the only ones on the boat. It was June, but still only us on the boat. Patojo never cuts the dives short.... More

I was staying in the resort directly opposite Patojo's and it was recommended to me by the staff. I went because it was convenient, but I went back for more dives because Patojo and his guys (Alex) were brilliant and it was REALLY good value for money. I had not dived in a few years and the smaller groups (only... More

It was AWESOME!! When we got there I was first of all very scared, as it was my first time snorkeling (I am a bit claustrophobic about breathing on a tube) and I was also unsure if my snorkeling kit would work... not to worry.. they have an entire room full of equipment of every size and super clean. I... More
