Established in 1987, Amigos Del Mar is a SSI and SDI resort facility which specializes in full-service diving, instruction, snorkeling, and fishing expeditions and is ideally situated in the heart of San Pedro Town. Our boats provide a convenient complimentary pick-up service at most of the island's major hotel docking establishments. We provide local diving expeditions on a daily basis starting with two dives at 9 am and two afternoon dives commencing at 1 pm. Night dives are also available upon request. In addition to the local diving excursions, trips to Belize's renowned offshore atolls including Turneffe, "The Elbow", Turneffe North, and The Great Blue Hole situated at Lighthouse Reef are also available. All offshore packages are full day excursions which consist of three dives and include continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks.

I was recommend by a different dive shop to dive the Big Blue Hole with Amigos Del Mar and let me tell you that with these guys you get high quality professionals that know what they are doing. The whole crew is very detail oriented in giving out instructions, punctual, and patient. I really appreciate the patience that they demonstrate... More

We did the 3 dive trip starting with the Blue Hole. We were on the big boat with about 17 divers. Boat was well equipped and comfortable. Ocean was a bit rough but the big boat made it do-able. Good instructions before dive. Good dive master/leader. I must say the Blue Hole seems to mostly be about bragging rights -... More

After reading tons of reviews, my boyfriend and I were skeptical about booking a trip with Amigos del Mar because of their PADI cert status. It was my first dive after being certified a month prior and we didn't want to take any chances. However, the island only has about three tour groups that go to the blue hole and... More

3 dives in one trip (one in the famous blue hole), a Belizean lunch on a gorgeous island, and a fun crew! I wouldn't have wanted to go with anyone else! Very safe diving, but also made everything lots of fun!

As an experienced diver I hate dive boats with day trippers on - sorry ,I'm a dive snob !!! Still not a bad day and boat reasonable . Rather an expensive day trip - $300 US dollars each plus park fees on top and that is with our own dive gear . Blue Hole - ok , deep but preferred... More

I dive 4 days with the outfit. Nothing but friendly, professional people. Apparently one of the oldest on the island. They even pick up at a nearby dock where I was staying and delivered me back. They have water, juice, tea and coffee as well as orange slices and watermelon. Since you return to the shop in between dives, it... More

Took a day trip out to blue hole and this review is based on just that experience. The crew was great and work hard to ensure a good time had by all. However, boat was crowded, and it was a mix of divers and snorkels which always has its challenges. Lots of newbs too which often leads to dives catering... More

As other reviewers have noted, Amigos del Mar has one of the biggest and best-appointed dive boats, which is important if you are going on a long day trip, such as the 5-hour round trip to Lighthouse Reef. The shop and the boat were well-staffed with friendly and professional captains/mates and divemasters/guides. Rental equipment was a step-up from what I... More

I have never done a review on this site but was so impressed with the service and overall attitude by everyone at Amigos Del Mar that I wanted to let others know. We were worried about the weather when we arrived but Kyle worked with us to insure that we scheduled everything and we could cancel with 24 hours notice... More

A friend and I went for the blue hole dive and enjoyed it very much. The big diveboat was more than spacious for the amount of people that were going and the ride wasnt too rough. All the 3 divesites are amazing and each different from the others. Our divemaster (george Jr. if i remember correctly) was very attentive and... More
