After over 40 years of marriage I finally persuaded my husband that I wouldn't die if I tried scuba diving. Perhaps he finally agreed because I wore him down. Perhaps he wanted our 14-year-old grandson to have a companion on his first diving experience. Perhaps it was the professional appearance of Hopkins Underwater Adventures. Whatever it was, I can finally... More

Dive Masters were great. Went to scuba and get my open water dives to complete my certification. After our first dive, one of the boat engines failed. We almost had to end our day there, but the staff quickly searched for an alternative and found another dive boat willing to take us out. Unfortunately, I did not get to complete... More

I did my first open water dive with Declan. He was a very patient and knowledgeable and I would recommend him for anyone just learning how to dive. Lucie was my dive buddy on my first dive after certification and really helped build my confidence. The entire crew was very professional and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed. I did... More

We took our two adult sons (19 and 22) to Belize for their first diving experience. Our oldest son certified 4 years ago and our youngest just last fall, both certified in lakes. Declan did a refresher course in the pool for our oldest boy so he was ready to go. Our youngest forgot his dive card and Lucie went... More

My girl friend and I were in Hopkins to get engaged and while we were there we looked at Hopkins Underwater Adventures for doing our check out dives. Needless to say we think we found the best group of guys ever to go out diving with in Belize!! Declan and his crew ran a top notch operation and I can't... More

We just got back from Belize and had a great time. A big part of it was the diving. I am a diver but my girlfriend is not. She (very) reluctantly agreed to take their Discover SCUBA class. Declan is one of the best instructors I have met. He took my girlfriend from "I'm not sure I'm getting in the... More

Declan and Lucie run a nice shop and good trips. We did a 2 tank and also a 3 tank dive. The 3 tank was to Glover's reef. No moorings or anchoring, so all dives were technically drift dives; no current on our dives, though. Good briefings and well run dives. Dive master Ralph does a great job, keeping it... More

First I was impressed with the boat and dive crew. As a Dive Master myself I watch how dive leads and boat crews interact with the divers on the trip. These guys did a great job gathering info on what experience levels they had on board and what were everyone's expectations from the trip. They put safety at the forefront... More

Went to Glover's reef with a boat of snorkelers and divers. They tried to accomodate both groups and actually moved everyone around to different sites. Not sure but you may get to more dive sites if you don't bring any snorkelers - but fantastic for groups w/ both people. Entire crew was friendly and talkative if you initiated conversation. Great...

Thank you so much for the great review. I would like to take this opportunity to address your comment about having extra air at the end of dive. At Glover's we always do 3 different locations, no matter if we have divers only or snorkelers as well. The sites are chosen based on current and visibility conditions and we always... More

Declan and Lucie were great! My husband and I had to have a refresher since it's been quite a while since our last dive. Declan was very helpful and patient with us (which I needed). And a couple days later our dive to Turneffe Atoll was awesome! The crew was great and very knowledgeable. Ralph was our dive master and... More
