We threw a pretty good challenge at these folks with the large group we took from DiVentures. Kevin and his staff, though, met the challenge and exceeded our expectations. The divemasters and boat captains were friendly, entertaining and very helpful with our full range of experience, from open water checkout dives to divers with hundreds of dives in their logs. Briefings were thorough and safe diving practices addressed before every dive. I like that.
We even had a few divers who, due to various circumstances, needed a little more attention and Kevin himself insisted upon taking them and being their private divemaster on a couple of occasions. Very impressive. Dive sites were chosen by divemasters and captains based on conditions and experience levels and they were open to suggestions from the divers. We even did one site twice because we enjoyed it so much.
Location is hard to beat as, with more than 40 divers, Sunbreeze is one of the few places that could accommodate us. Being able to walk off the resort into the dive shop and onto the pier was both welcome and wonderful. They even had some special guests from the US Embassy in Belize out for a day (courtesy of a Belize Coast Guard boat and crew) and I had the pleasure of diving with them. When I asked the security team how they chose Hugh Parkey's, they told me safety and experience were key and that this was one of the few operations approved for US diplomats. Pretty hard to beat that kind of ranking.
Groups of this size can be hard to manage but Hugh Parkey's handled us with great aplomb, making the trip safe, enjoyable and memorable for us all. Highly recommended.
