“First & Last stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stopped here first to check out dive prices and Kevin was great. He just flat out gave a very reasonable price for dives & rental, and we were surprised and pretty much stopped searching then and there. The dive masters were very chilled out, and I was quite comfortable on all of our dives despite not having been in over a year. The frequency of daily dives was also outstanding.

“Fantastic diving experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Did several dives with Belize Dive Connection after getting my open water certification. They offered a much better experience than their competitor, at a lower price for the dives. The guides were highly knowledgeable, paid very good attention to safety, and were attentive to everyone in the small groups. The equipment was all high quality and in good working order, and everybody from the company was very friendly and helpful. All in all, an excellent diving experience and recommended to anyone looking for a dive shop in San Pedro.

“Amazing time diving the barrier reef with Belize Dive Connection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

I just returned home from an amazing vacation to Belize. I spent 7 days in San Pedro. The hotel recommended Hugh Parkey's Belize Dive Connection and they did not disappoint! This was my first time diving post PADI Open Water certification in July so I was a little nervous. The crew at HP took the best care of me and my friend. They were all very professional, friendly and accommodating. I did 6 dives and 3 snorkeling with HP and they were all fantastic. Dive masters Patrick and Israel took great of us. Israel also got me some great pictures with the sharks. I got to pet sharks, rays and turtles, we saw tons of beautiful fish and corals, eels, crabs and lobsters. I got to hold a shark in my arms a couple of times and that was an incredible experience. Patrick went out of his way to make sure we saw as much marine life as possible and I felt so safe and comfortable with him and the whole crew. They are all rockstars in my opinion and I highly recommend diving or snorkeling with them. I will definitely use them again next time I come back to San Pedro. Thank you guys!

“AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I spent 12 days in San Pedro for my honeymoon in October. I was certified but had never dove in the ocean before my trip to Belize and was too scared to dive our first trip out on the boat. When we went to the dive shop for the surface interval Tina and Kevin offered for Kevin to dive with just me so I could take my time and be comfortable with descending. I went on to do 11 dives through the shop and they even helped organize a trip for us to go to the Blue Hole through another dive shop, which was difficult to task since we were in Belize during the off season.

Thank you Kevin, Tina, Captin Avi, Patrick, Jerome and Isreal!!! You all made our honeymoon in Belize an unforgettable time.
