My husband and I did 8 dives with Scuba School after getting certified in March 2019. The entire staff from the front counter to captain and dive masters were fantastic to deal with. Safety was a top priority along with making sure the divers had an enjoyable experience. They were very accommodating and let me reschedule one of my dives when I felt unwell. The groups were small with only 5 or 6 to one dive master. James was our dive master for the majority of our dives and he was enthusiastic, funny, and patient. I had issues with my personal mask during our dive and James helped to adjust it and then switched my mask with his when that didn’t help. We didn’t do any dives with MJ but he picked us up from our resort a few times. He ended up being a fantastic tour guide on our short drive to and from the dive shop. The dives sites were amazing with incredibly beautiful coral. We saw nurse & reef sharks, turtles, spotted rays, puffer fish, eels, and so much more. A special thank you to James and MJ for such a unbelizeable trip. We would definitely book with Scuba School again.

Hi Djones1, I just wanted to drop a huge thank you from all of us here at SSFDCB for your spectacular 5-star review and account of your amazing adventure with us last year. I cannot believe all of the marine life you were able to see, I am always blown away by what lies just below the surface on the barrier reef. Our team is over the moon that you and your husband had such a wonderful experience and you also felt that we provided a safe environment for you guys to explore the underwater world. At the end of the day, safety is always what is most important. Thank you so much for not only your kind words about our fantastic crew, but also for choosing to dive with us! We know there are plenty of other choices for your Belizean adventures and we are so grateful that you decided to dive with our family. We hope to have the privilege of diving with you guys again soon, your tanks are full and waiting! Kindest Regards, Lauren SSFDCB Management Team

My husband and I took our 13 and 11 year old boys to Belize to finish their open water certification. Yemin was AMAZING! He took great care of our boys and allowed them to have a fun experience while in a very safe environment. The team at Scuba School even set up a day for our two younger children and grandma to snorkel above where the rest of us were diving. Again, they took such good care of our young children and helped them feel safe during an amazing experience. The entire staff is professional, knowledgable and personable. They are a ton of fun! They place your safety as top priority. We will come back and dive with them every time.

Our two teenage girls completed their open water certification with Scuba School and we couldn't be happier that we chose them. Their instructor, Josh, was excellent -- very patient and caring and they way he managed our one daughter when she was struggling with her confidence due to fairly high waves after getting off the boat was a model of professionalism. My wife and I hadn't been diving for a number of years (although we did do a pool refresher before heading to Belize) and found that the staff as Scuba School was really patient with us as we got some of the rust off. They are very focused on safety and that was key to feeling very comfortable with them. You can't go wrong picking Scuba School for your diving needs in Ambergris Caye. Highly Recommended.

SUPER professional and funny dive team! I absolutely loved it. The spots they brought us were stunning and I always felt in good hands. Also I appreciated checking the dive equipment bevor every dive - as it unfortunately not common in all dive centres. I bought the Shark Package and it was a perfect choice for me. Not only did I see my favourit animal, a shark, every dive but also after these 10 dives I felt super secure. I lost all my fear and finnaly it felt natural to breathe underwater! :D The dive team is very supportive and funny which makes the dive experience unforgettable and just perfect! I will never forget it! I would always come back and I will ! THANK YOU! :)

My partner and I bought a fun-dive package from Scuba School (Coral Package). The entire staff of this organization is wonderful. I have been diving for over 10 years and the pre-dive briefings are among the best I have ever had. The equipment was in great shape and the dive masters were great and we had a great time. Additionally the rates are extremely competitive. Would highly recommend to people learning to dive or extremely experienced divers.
