The first impression is maintained for the whole diving day: BDS is so organised as never seen before. As usual you compiled the document for personal diving experience and insurance. Afterwards they ask you equipment sizes and finally you agree timing for the day of the diving. When you arrive, let's say the day after , everything is on the... More

I'm travelling with 4 friends and we wanted to do out SDI open water qualification and I was recommended by a friend that BDS was good. They certainly didn't disappoint. They were extremely helpful, insightful and a good laugh. The training was done well and the subsequent dive we were among nurse sharks, loggerhead turtles, eels and many tropical fish.... More

When we were planning to be there the local dive shop was unavailable. Marcia did magic and arranged Belize Master Adventures out of San Pedro to take care of us and it was superb. We got the best dives of our lives.

I did a dive refresher with BDS and 2 dives to Turneffe Atoll. My friend and I had a great experience with the company. The equipment is great condition, the dive masters set up your gear for you, and the boat we took had sufficient seating in and out of the sun. Most importantly, I felt safe and confident in...

Read the reviews and was expecting a great service from this dive operator, and the locations are amazing however the service is non existent like you're bothering them when you ask them something there are so many better operators Choose elsewhere

I had heard bds were "the" company to dive with in caye caulker. I can't tell you how right this is. Their helpful manager cj booked everything for me via email. Their team of dive instructors are professional, helpful, fun and generally bloody fantastic. Their boats are the best and biggest of all the companies on the island which was... More

We both went out to the Great Blue Hole with BDS, my husband dove and I snorkeled. He had wanted to go with this company because they are the only technical dive shop (they teach diving, instructors, cave diving, etc.) on Caye Caulker. They also have a nicer boat compared to other companies. The 2.5 hour boat ride out to... More

I have been diving for more than 50 years--800 to 900 dives and am 72-yo. I made 11 dives and prices were reasonable. From beginning to end they were organized, professional, safe, accommodating, flexible, fun, punctual and relaxed. Equipment was new and in great shape. Two boats are kept in good shape and are built for divers into and out... More

This was one of the best dive companies I have used. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating from the first email I sent them trying book. When we arrived at the centre the staff were even friendly in person! The boat and crew were fabulous and I felt 100% safe diving with them. Such a fabulous experience and would recommend... More

From their boats (a super fast Hunter 46) to the shop, the dock and, most importantly, the guides, this is the place in Belize. I'm a seasoned diver and can be a little "funny" about safety and environmental impact. These get high marks in both areas. The reefs they dive are pristine and they work hard to help keep them...
