Really liked how low key and yet professional BDS is. We signed up with them after reading our outdated Lonely Planet, and would do it again in a heartbeat. BDS had a proper dive boat that can accommodate up to 18 divers. On the first two trips out, the waves were really choppy (5-6 footers) and I was really glad... More

They have the best gear and the best boat on the island that's for sure. it wont be cheap thou... The guide we were diving with was a bit too fast in the water and left me a bit far off the group in the blue hole (a bit scary, had to swim really fast to catch up) but other... More

Lots of choices on Caye Caulker for diving, but after a week of diving with Belize Diving Services, I can't imagine anyone having a more professional and fun staff. No matter who was leading us on the dive that particular day, we had great dives with a lot of critters to see! Thanks BDS for a great week. I'll be... More

We came here having never dived before and we were pretty nervous about the whole thing. Walter and Pablo did an excellent job to make us feel comfortable with everything and going over each skill as slow and as many times as we needed. The entire staff at Belize Diving Services was professional but also had us laughing the whole... More

Good services, nice dives, staff friendly, big boat with shower. The prices are a little expensive but it is the same everywhere in Belize.

We spent a week diving with BDS earlier this month. My boyfriend and I are both new divers and I was careful to do a lot of research to determine which diving operation was the safest and most professional on the island. It was pretty clear that BDS stood out above the rest, and I was not disappointed! First of... More

I enjoyed a week of cave diving with friendly staff and a professional operation. Pablo did a great job on my Nitrox and O2 fills and the percentages were right on the mark. New Bauer air compressor using the Securus Filter System providing quality air/nitrox fills. The owner Chip Peterson was extremely helpful with cave related info. The shop had... More

I am normally not one to write reviews, but felt the need after getting home from a great trip and experience these guys have to offer. I came out to Caye Caulker, Belize from Oakland, CA nervous about doing my 3 days of in-water training to get PADI certified. They were very nice and informative about everything providing me with...

We aren't the kind if people who walk in and take the first thing they are offered. We shop around and usually will try and get a good deal or go somewhere cheaper. However after deliberating for 2 days we decided to pay the little bit extra and consort BDS, and every cent was worth it! They had excellent gear,... More
