My husband and I got our open water certification at this shop. It is extremely well run and organised and full of patient instructors. I struggled a lot during the first day of the course (confined water part) and wasn't even sure if I could continue. I felt extremely claustrophobic and uncomfortable. But Christina, an instructor at the shop, encouraged... More

My girlfriend and I took the open water diving certification with BDS and it went great. Cal was our instructor and he really took good care of us. He gave us great instructions before we jumped into the water so we can repeat the same exercises when we were there. Everyone had to go through and Cal made sure we... More

As you experienced, we like to make sure our student divers feel comfortable with every aspect of diving before becoming certified and going out on their own. Cal is an incredible dive instructor,...

We did our last diving in Malaysia 2 years ago so we are not that experienced open water divers. We started with a review of most important things. We learned even new things from Walter our instructor. Next day they (Walter, Ilya and Edgar (?) took us with their great boat to 2 awesome dive sites: Spanish Bay and Dolphin... More

We hope the Blue Hole dive was just as great as Spanish Bay and Dolphin Point! Our crew is great at what they do; it’s our goal to always ensure customer safety, comfort, and fun during all stages of a dive. Walter, Ilya, Edgar, and Pablo are incredible crewmembers of BDS, and they’re constantly looking for ways to accommodate divers.... More

BDS takes diving to the level I wish everyone in Caye Caulker would adhere to. I've dove them all with 30 years diving in Belize and over 15 in Caye Caulker. BDS has great staff, they care about your personal dive experience, they are both knowledgeable and fun. The boats are well maintained with good safety gear. GREAT ladders so... More

Thanks for the great review! We always like to hear from veteran divers, especially with so much time spent in Belize. As you experienced, water can get rough outside the reef, and we’re happy to have such an accommodating boat and ladders as well. We’re always looking for ways to make our diver’s experience as easy, relaxing, and fun as... More

I completed the SDI Open Water Certification with BDS last week. While not the cheapest choice on the island, BDS made every penny worth it. I got an instructor (Ilya) all to myself even though other students were being certified at the same time. He was incredibly patient, making sure to answer all of my questions and ensuring I felt...

What an amazing experience- where do I begin? For starters, diving with BDS for the week made our visit to Caye Caulker unforgettable. From the start, CJ graciously answered ALL of my questions through many emails. It was such a nice feeling walking up to the dive shop where they were expecting us and have Lexi call us by name....
