I was recently certified and my friend was doing his open water certification with White Sands. The group was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful giving us hints on how to improve our efficiency in the water. My friends open water instruction was identical to what I had received in the states - which was very reassuring. Overall, a very good... More

So this review is hard because of conflicting factors. There was 3 of us going diving and one that really do not like big waves. If we made that clear or not can be argued. There are big waves on the way out to the site so the one afraid of that did get really scared and also vomited. For... More

Elbert G, Owner at White Sands Dive Shop, responded to this review

Abbe 81, I'm scratching my head over your review. It seems you had good things to say about us and the shop but are complaining for your friend who was scared, sea sick and didn't get a refund? We always give a refund if we notice or are asked, It's easy for us to do and good costumer relations, yes.... More

During our stay on Ambergris Caye I had the pleasure of diving with White Sands Dive Shop for a total of 7 dives and 1 snorkel trip. In addition, my fiancé enrolled to become Scuba certified. Where do I begin with the praises? It all started with their friendly boat Captain picking us up dockside from our resort. He was... More

We went out to sharkray alley with White Sands and the experience was amazing .... Henry was our guide and he was really really knowledgeable - great sighting of a rather large turtle, plenty of sharks and stingrays. Also went to the Reserve and toured the reefs - so much to see. The safety side was also paramount and we... More

These guys were great. They really worked with our group to help us fit a dive into our busy vacation schedules. The instructors were knowledgable and did great with the first time divers in our group. They even returned the money to one of our group members that ended up getting sick on dive day and could not make the... More

I have previously visited White Sands two years back and had a wonderful snorkeling experiences. A friend encouraged me to dive so I did the e Learning course with my pool sessions and Open Water Dives with White Sands. Not going to lie. I nearly quit and did not think I had diving in me. My instructor, JC, was unreal... More

I have been wanting to go diving for a while, but have never gotten around to it or the price was too expensive. I did the Discover Diving with Raul. We went to Las Terrazas pool to learn the basics. He was very patient with us. I had some anxiety and did a little freaking out. But Raul was a... More

I went snorkeling with White Sands 3 times in the week we were there. Went to Mexico Rocks once and Ho Chan/Shark Ray Alley twice. Henry guides the trips, he is incredibly knowledgeable. He know the reefs very well and is great with novice snorkelers and also for someone like me who has snorkeled many times. We saw green sea... More

Excellent tour guides. Henry was awesome. He took us on 2 snorkeling trips. He snorkeled with us and told us what type of fish we were seeing. He made it a fun day!
