Listen up. As a diver we all have experienced the large boats, the lousy equipment, the herd mentality, the waiting, the crowd in the water and the wide spread in ability, safety and sand in our faces. Unique Dive Adventures restores diving to why we love it. Exceptional attention to detail, great communication, professional, very fun. Enrique is the perfect guide and dive master. Beyond outstanding knowledge of the sport and the Belize reef, he is so courteous, flexible, a great cook, slows it all down so you really enjoy all that this great diving location has to offer. HIs boat is perfect. Barnaby assists with the same level of fun attitude, professionalism and safety. The diversity of the reef is famous and a definite bucket list place. But to really enjoy it all as it should be this is your best choice. It will change forever how you think about picking a dive operator.

I cannot say enough about Unique Dives. Sarah helps coordinates your trips... Anything you can imagine..completely customizable, gets back to you promptly on any questions and has great suggestions. We did three trips with them in a week and each was different and amazing! They pick you right up on your dock on your time schedule.
The first day we did an outing to Mexico Rocks. Fairly quick to get too and nice shallow snorkel. Each time we went The guys were amazing with everybody. In our big family group we had all levels of snorkelers and several ages...from 6-16 in kids. They took a lot of time watching over the kids, helping them in the water and pointing out all the different creatures.
They packed snacks and drinks and thought of everything.
Second snorkel was Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan. Shark/Ray is really amazing with tons of docile nurse sharks and stingrays. They feed them right off the boat. It's unreal to be on the water with them.
Hol chan is a protected reef marine area and is deeper than Mexico rocks. The water is still crystal clear and the fish are huge. Friendly grouper, huge tarpins, rays and green turtles are just a few things to see there.
Again, our guides were wonderful with the kids and the adults...pointing out everything...giving us the names of all the coral and sea life.
The last day we were with them we did a longer outing. Just my husband and myself. Went to the mangrove area where all the fish come to lay their eggs. Baby fish, lobsters, barracuda all hide in the mangroves until big enough to fend for themselves and move onto the reef...really cool!! Did some fishing and then had a fabulous lunch of grilled fresh-caught snapper, chicken, tortillas...to die for...we had a wonderful lazy day snorkeling, sunning and taking in the beauty of Belize.
I cannot say enough how much I loved our time with Enrique and crew...the trips were well priced, well planned, never rushed...JUST HEAVEN. If you're planning a trip to Ambergris please let them take you out!!
I also know they dive and do custom diving trips. I can only imagine those are as well done as our days were.

I booked Enrique for six of us which quickly grew to nine. No problem, the boat held all of us comfortably. We had some new snorklers but again no problem. Enrique is calming, reassuring and attentive to the inexperienced. Kept things organized in the water and gave a great tour of Ho Chan showing everyone all the marine life. On to Shark Ray Alley where we could swim around freely behind the reef and play with the sharks and rays. Then some pretty solid rum punch while we motored to Caye Caulker for lunch, shopping and sight seeing. A nice easy cruise back to San Pedro finished a full day on the water. A really fun day for those of us who have spent some time here as well as the newbies.

Plan to spend the day with Enrique and crew. Experience doesn't mater. He was very flexible and made our sea adventure very memorable. We had hoped to dive but my fiancé and I have not been diving in many years so we were reluctant. We felt no pressure from Enrique. We snorkled and had a great time. He was very knowledgable and we were able to take our time. A little fishing and a BBQ. Then back to another spot for some more time in the water. It was a great day!

My new wife and I took a trip down to San Pedro last week and Enrique & Unique Dive Adventures were our first "outting". During the initial conversations I had with Enrique and his wife online, we were presented with a few different options for a full day trip and we decided on the Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley experience. They let us know that they would pick us up from our dock and gave us the flexibility to pick the time which we wanted to start.

Once on the boat Enrique let us know where we were going to be going and double checked with us to make sure that's where we still wanted to go, which it was. Once the tour started, he fitted us for our gear (masks & fins) and gave us an overview of what we were going to see and needed to do. He personally went into the water with us, showed us the area, fish, etc... He had great knowledge of the area and the animals living in the areas and helped us gain a better understanding of what we were seeing.

After our first snorkeling location we set off to our 2nd location and during this time my wife got a little sea sick and he made an extra effort to ensure that she was being taken care of and offering extra attention to her and her needs (we were very impressed by the genuine concern!) Once she was feeling better, she got back in the water and he swam around with a life jacket just to make sure that she was ok while swimming... again genuine concern about her and her experience!

Other things to point out about our trip:
- They went out before our trip to go fishing and catch fresh fish for us.
- They went lobster hunting for us to add to our AMAZING BBQ lunch
- Enrique took a underwater camera along for our adventure, took pictures for us, and created a image CD for us... free of charge.

Overall our experience with Unique Dive Adventures was OUTSTANDING! My wife and I highly recommend them if you are looking for a personal experience on your snorkeling trip. Their genuine care about your experience is 2nd to none - we will be going back!!!
