We went with ADM under high recommendations from our friends. Although we felt the prices were a bit higher than other snorkeling shops around town, we felt the small price premium was worth it. The equipment was clean, the snorkeling guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and it was an overall very pleasant experience. During one of our snorkeling tours,... More

I had read all the terrible reviews about this company. Two times now I've stayed at the hotel in front of their dock. I've always booked with the most reputable company in San Pedro, obviously not this one... Through the dive operators I love and trust, here in San pedro, I booked a dive to the Turneffe Atolls, the destination... More

We booked a trip with Amigos Del Mar to dive the Blue Hole on November 26, 2014. We picked this date due to weather being forecast to deteriorate the following day. To our disappointment upon waking at 4:30 am for the ride to the dive boat the wind was blowing 25 mph. Realizing this would make for a miserable as... More

11-26-14. We decided to book a trip and due to weather forecast this day seemed the best for our week. Little did we know the bad weather came early. We woke up at 4:30 am to find the wind gusting to 30 mph. I checked the marine weather and it said to expect gust over 30 mph. Since I am... More

I own a dive shop and as a dive shop owner I can say that I really appreciated the organization of this team. We were picked up on the beach by our hotel and brought to the shop and dropped off back to our hotel afterwards as part of the dive experience. The gear was organized and well maintained. The...

I did the Blue Hole Trip with these guys. Like another reviewer, I ran low on air and the DM just gave me an ok sign (@ 500#). We continued diving over the next 5-10 minutes and weren't ascending so I kept getting in his face. He finally put me on his octopus and I ascended with him and rest... More

I booked with ADM to go to the great blue hole...big mistake! The food we were offered was disgusting and the drinks consisted of tang and water. The boat was very uncomfortable and slow and the deck was very slippery. Halfway there we had to turn around due to engine trouble and upon return we weren't offered any discount for... More

My husband and I went on a morning snorkeling trip to the Mexico rocks, which are reef bundles. The snorkeling was fun, with tons of sea life to see. Our snorkeling guide was awesome in pointing out sea creatures that we would have missed. It was a very fun morning and would do it again!

I rarely take the time to review, but had to after the incredible experience I had diving with Amigos Del Mar. I planned to dive two days, but weather ruled out the first. Luckily, the trip we were able to make was the dive at the Blue Hole. I had two outstanding dive masters, Edgar and Mike. I cannot say... More
