Dive Hamanasi is onsite at the Hamanasi Resort just outside of Hopkins, a small Garifuna fishing village on the mainland just south of Belize City. We did 10 dives with them while we were there in April 2014. Dive Hamanasi is a PADI 5 star shop with friendly and efficient staff. Rental gear is available. They run a pair of... More

My son and I were new to diving, but this group made us feel very comfortable. The guys are lots of fun and have lots of character. The equipment and boats were very well maintained. They are very conscious of safety which I appreciated having a 12 year old diver with me. I have no reservations recommending Dive Hamanasi to... More

They take their job seriously but keep you relaxed and are knowledgeable about all the sites. We never dove the same site twice in our 5 days of diving. They setup everything for you and break it down afterwards. Just show up check your equipment and dive.

I had heard that Belize had good diving, so my wife wanted to get her certfication so we decided to look around and see what was offered. We found Hamanasi and that they had a PADI 5 star gold palm certification peaked our interest. We looked into it and booked a vacation there. The dive staff is phenomenal. They have... More

We were staying at Hamanasi so naturally we dove with them as well. The dock is right near the main building, minutes from the treehouses. The boat leaves early for a full day of diving so get some rest. The boat crew and dive masters were safe, a lot of fun and skilled. We had divers of all experiences and... More

We spent four wonderful days scuba diving with Dive Hamansi located right on site at the amazing Hamanasi Resort. We were guests at the resort. The guests at the resort get first priority to sighing up for all reef excursions. We loved the valet diving. We dropped off our gear the night before at the resort’s Recreation Center and walk...
