Was vacationing with a non-certified diver so he took the "discover Scuba" course at the pool while I waited. We were both able to dive at Hol Chan then snorkel at Shark Ray alley. Our divemaster Raul was very friendly and made us both feel comfortable with the dive. He frequently got our attention to point out marine life that we may have missed otherwise. We saw a ton of eagle rays, an eel, and many beautiful fish, then swam with the nurse sharks on the snorkel. Only negative - The current was much stronger than I expected which made it hard to enjoy about 10 minutes in the middle of the dive because I was so focused on trying to swim forward. Lessons learned- get my bf certified so we can come back and do an open water dive with Raul and White Sands!

My husband and I took a 2 tank scuba dive with the White Sands Dive Shop and later in the afternoon went snorkeling. The dive master and snorkel guide were fantastic. Very friendly staff that try to ensure the best experiences. We were very happy with our experience and highly recommend them!

The Team consisting of Julie, Ernesto, Raul were absoultly the best. They are friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and honest. They informed me on best time and place for weather conditions and were very accurate after talking to other couples that went out that day with a different dive shop. The current and visibility were great at Mexico Rocks for a windy day. Had a great time and the other couples did not have same exprience on same day. Would like to tell the team great job and I'll definitely be back to the ideal setting they have for their dive shop. Very safe and clean operation. So, if your planning a dive or snorkel trip, stop in and talk with Julie. She will set you up with the best day and trip due to weather conditions.

Great dives, lots of sharks & exceptional fun watching Raul spear Lionfish! Also, so easy having the boat pick you up on your dock. The boat drivers were all very nice & great to talk to.

The service at White Sands Dive Shop is outstanding. I was in San Pedro for a week and had planned to do 5 days of scuba diving. Unfortunately, it was very windy most of the week, which meant we had to do a lot of last-minute adjustments and re-booking to our activities. White Sands helped us every step of the way. They gave us twice daily updates on the diving conditions, took us diving every chance we could, and helped us book last-minute mainland adventures when it was too windy to dive. I am so grateful to White Sands for their excellent service and kindness. I had an amazing vacation in Belize even though it didn't have as much diving as I had planned, and I owe that to White Sands for their flexibility and helpfulness.
