What can I say, I have been spoiled by places in Bali and Honduras that offer resort style diving (fresh towels, hot coffee, and juices between dives) at budget prices. But as far as Caye Caulker goes, this place is the only one I trust. Average cost is a whopping $90 per dive, so even though u may be successfully... More

AMAZING! boat was awesome, instructor was very good, very knowledgeable and very safety conscious. These people are ultimate pros. this was our first time in open water and the seas were a little rough but Walter made us feel safe and carried out all of our skills tests. cannot speak highly enough of this company.

These folks have good equipment, great boat, and are quite professional. They were also helpful in getting me on a boat during high season. Not as good for single divers as I was buddied with someone after entry and that person was more interested in showing things to my friend so probably would help to get buddied pre-dive. Also less...

I dove with these guys for four days. The reservation went smooth with one phone call and couple of emails(they have a top-free number for you to call). Both dive boats are newton 46 which are spacious and well equipped. I had my own gear and I just packed my gear after the dives, and they would take it to... More

I can not say enough good things about these guys. After spending a week on the Caye, I see why these guys are the best operation. I walked around and saw some of the boats from other outfits....no bueno. They are the best equipped by far. They are running two different big (48 ft?) Newton boats and they limit their... More

I have been diving since 1988, and have rarely come across a more professional dive operation. Their two dive boats, the Meara and Mennipe are state of the art. Big enough for large groups, but still comfortable. Each has a salon area to protect the divers from the elements, but also a roof area for sunning or relaxing. Both of... More

My partner and I hadn't dived for 14 years and we therefore carried out some refresher sessions with a local club before leaving UK. We explained to BDS on arrival that we wanted to take things slowly and they were absolutely fine with that - at no stage was there any implied pressure to get in and get down. The... More

Great boats and equipment. I did not dive with any other operations but talked to a few and was not impressed. The guides were approachable and friendly put you on the spot and provided a reference for direction. what more could you ask for? they handle all the grunt work to. Made for a great week of diving. You might... More

Our first day on the island we did a quick tour of all the dive shops, and quickly realized there were basically two choices; BDS, and everybody else. Yes, they are a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for, and cheapest is NEVER what I'm looking for in a dive outfitter. We brought our own gear, but... More
