My sister and I booked the open water dive certification class with the online component. We completed all the coursework online prior to arriving at the dive school so we were ready to jump right in the water. Zain was our instructor and he was absolutely amazing. In fact ALL of the staff from Megan to Zain and all of the drivers, boat captains were wonderful! They picked us up and drove us back to our accommodation before and after our dives. This was really helpful as we only had one golf cart for my family and our accommodation was on the far southern end of the island.

The dive experience was unforgettable. Zain was such an amazing teacher and really spent his time with my sister and I walking us through each step and making sure we were comfortable the entire time. Safety was a top priority with this organization and I could not imagine a better group of people to learn to dive from. I am completely hooked now and hope to return and go diving with them again!

We came to take a diving course and to dive in the Great Blue Hole.
This week turned out to be the best vacation we had in a long time - the lessons were fun, we saw so many animals, and felt safe right from the begninning.
The positive and fun and professional approach of our instructor, Zain, made the whole thing great, and we never really felt like we're learning, but more like doing things with a new friend (that felt like we've known him in forever).

The pre- and post-communication with the team was quick, clear and efficient, and that made the whole experience easy to plan, and to be exactly what we expected it to be.

We took the theoretical part in advance, as recommended by the team, because we asked to plan our week in Belize in a manner that will allow us both to complete the training, to get prepared for a deeper dive (that's a different certification) and to dive the Great Blue Hole. And all worked as planned!

I wish you had more branches around the world, it's always a great feeling to know you are in the hands of professionals when planning dives.

The excellent experience began over email when Megan, Christine, and Alexa read each question I had (there were many!) and offered customer packages and solutions to meet my needs.

When we arrived in town, my friend took a refresher divers course while I did a one-tank dive. We both had excellent experiences.

My friend took the refresher course with Andy who is committed to diver safety and education. I went on a dive with Eric, who is very knowledgeable about the reef, and is very good at making divers feel comfortable. We are doing a 2-tank dive with the team tomorrow, and I know whenever I’m back in Belize, I will be coming back to Scuba School.

Scuba School Belize was amazing place to get certified this summer. They have great instructors and have amazing service. They have a great atmosphere in the shop, they make you feel safe and make sure you are having fun. They are very knowledgeable in their profession and help you if you dont understand what they have taught. I would highly recommend this shop for your scuba certification needs or any of the other fun things they over! They were amazing!!!

When I got my Open Water certification a year ago, my first dive was in Cancun and I ended up getting the bends. Scuba School and Family Dive Center took safety very, very seriously. They are sure to very thoroughly brief you on the conditions and environment of the dive. They are sure to plan out the dive very well. They don't ask you to switch regulators underwater if you run low like some of the other dive shops I've been. They start doing their 3 minute stop at around 800 psi, the most conservative I've ever seen. They're also ethical and do not feed sea animals. All in all it was an excellent experience. I dove with Erick and my friend got her Open Water with Zain. Both great guys. This is probably one of the best scuba shops I've been due to their professionalism. Highly recommended.
