Booked a trip to the blue hole with them, was assured that they were 100% going, but after paying in full (make sure to request a receipt), & turning up at the dock early the following morning we were met by a local guy who looked like he'd just stumbled out of the reggae bar & told us that the...

Big fish diving will book diving to the blue hole, but the boat and equipment is all aqua scuba, so any reviews here not having a good blue hole experience for these reasons it is not actually with big fish. We found big fish helpful, and the equipment we tried on in their shop to get measurements for aqua scuba... More

This is the most unreliable dive center I now of and the first time in my life that I left a dive center without even diving once. First the guy said he will take me and group out for a night dive the next evening and I agreed, since I thought it looks a bit crap here but fine a... More

These guys are unorganized. For a dive we got our wet suit and fins here, then went by boat across the split to get gas. Then to San Pedro to get the BCD and air. After this we went for the two dives. What was a 9-1p trip turned out to be 9-5p trip. The equipment is crap. 5 out... More

I dived with these guys a few times while in Caye Caulker including the Great Blue Hole. Our dive master was very professional and I felt safe and well looked after throughout the whole experience. The dive gear was also in good condition. Big Fish seemed to be the most price competitive.

Saved usd 40 by diving with these guys to Esmerelda. on hind sight, not worth it. On the second dive the dive master couldn't find the planned dive site, so the dive we did wasn't the dive he out lined in the dive plan. Also, worst of all one of the 5 divers ran out of air while down there... More

We stayed on Caye Caulker for a week in February and the diving with big fish was the best on our trip. What made the difference was, that the crew was so nice and friendly. But of course I can just judge the Divemaster we dove with. Seeing other reviews gives the idea they may have some black Sheep. We... More

Well first things first, relative to the negative reviews I've read below... YOU ARE IN BELIZE. This is not the U.S.. Also, there are drugs on Caye Caulker, and yes you may witness a drug deal here and there, but that doesn't mean the islanders are sketchy or unreliable just because they are different than you. I did 3 dives... More

We booked a fishing/ snorkeling trip with Big Fish Dive shop and had a great time. Great fishing, good snorkeling and a good price. Our guide, Charlie was helpful and flexible about our itinerary and even brought us to see the rays. amazing time

My husband had an agreement to go diving to Blue Hole, like 13 other people, with Big Fish on Jan 2nd. Evening before they all had to meet to do their payment and choose their gear. We all waited for over and hour for the dive master. Nobody showed up, there was only one guy sitting behind the desk, just... More
