Really had a great time with the Dive Masters at White Sands. We dove with Raul and he was spot on and got us going with no worries. The rest of the Dive Masters were on the same impressive level of doing a great job. Tim and Melinda

Juan Carlos and Henry were great tour guides! My grandmother and I had an amazing time. We saw turtles, eels, sharks, Caribbean rays, and spotted ray eagles.

White Sands is the best dive shop in the Caribbean! From the timely departures, fantastic staff, and great clean equipment. The staff really knows what they are doing. They made my girlfriends mother very comfortable in the water, and I cannot thank them enough for that! Also, Sam was great when we went scuba diving. He is very intuitive and... More

Just returned from our fabulous Belize trip. Had a great stay at Las Terrazas and it was enhanced by using Elbert and his team at White Sands. The shop was only a 2 minute walk from Las Terrazas on the beach. We are a family of 5 certified open water divers ( grandparents too!) and 2 "to be certified" divers.... More

When we go to Belize we are loyal to las Terrazas (you need to stay there too!)... Lucky for us the most amazing dive shop is connected to the property. I kid you not after a 7 year lapse in our visit -- some of the same people are still working here! We love all the guides, the owner and... More

We booked our Hol Chan and Shark/Stingray Alley tour through Elbert at the Dive Shop. Elbert is a wonderful soul who truly loves what he is doing! So glad we met him on our trip! Our guide was Henry and his understudy was Joe. They were a dynamic duo in keeping our group together. We had so much fun that... More

I went diving with these guys every Tuesday from March through June. We only went to the same place maybe twice during that time. There are so many dive spots within a 10 to 15 minute boat ride from the shop. I saw everything from sharks to turtles and a multitude of fish. Sam Nd Carlos will take great care... More

We did two snorkel trips with White Sands Dive Shop. They were both incredible! We did Hol Chan Marine Park and Mexico Rocks. Joe was our captain for the Hol Chan trip and Raul was our captain for the Mexico Rock trip. Both captains were wonderful! Henry was our guide for both trips. He was funny and informative. Henry would... More

We own a home on the island, 2 miles north, and I have been diving with Elbert and his team for many years. They are a cheerful team and, most importantly, extremely safety conscious! The equipment is good quality and well maintained and the boats, in my experience, are not overloaded (mostly max. 5-6 divers). They drive down on one... More
