There are lots of dive shops. This is the only one with a first class shop, new equipment, large boats, plenty of guides, and a week long schedule of different dives. They might be a little more expensive than other scuba outfitters, but it's worth it.

The kit, food and staff were some of the best I have experienced doing Scuba BUT for 1 day of diving, with 3 dives, it cost $325 USD which is crazy. It left a bit of a sour taste, but I did have a great day.

I did my 2 day open water class with BDS. Ilya was an awesome instructor. He was extremely patient and made sure we were all comfortable and knowledgeable in the water. They take diver safety seriously and the gear is in great condition. All the DMs are super knowledgeable about the dives sites and take the time to brief everyone... More

This dive service was very well run. We dove (4 other divers) with them for 5 days. The boats left on time. The dive masters and boat captains were knowledgeable and helpful dealing with divers of all levels. I was happy that they had two DMs in the water, so the group could be split in two. This made it... More

I did 3 dive days with BDS. Everyone was very professional and helpful. Special thanks to Ilya, Walter, Pablo, Eugene and Giovanni. As a relatively new diver they were patient with me and wanted to make sure I had a great and safe experience. The dive locations were fabulous.

I originally found BDS on line before my first trip to Caye Caulker. I just took a chance on doing my diving certification with them. On arriving at BDS, I found the staff extremely helpful, the dive lessons fantastic and the entire way I was treated top notch. Their facilities and dive equipment were the best I'd ever seen (I...

We have been diving all over the Caribbean and with some amazing dive operators. BDS definitely lives up to our high standards. The service is great. Chip and CJ took good care of us in the front office. Boat operations are top notch. The larger boat, Maera, is very comfortable for the longer trips of 6+ hours. Sea Drops is... More

I just finished my Open Water Certification with BDS, Belize Diving Services. From the contact emails, to the instructors, from CJ and Danny, to Chip and especially my instructor for the 4 dives, Walter, this company was above and beyond professional. Every step of the way I was treated with respect and courtesy. While on board, each instructor was attentive... More
