Belize Diving services is, for the most part, owned and operated by Chip and Dani Peterson; apparently there must be a law that says a Belizean citizen must have an ownership interest in any company based on Belizean soil; therefore, Pablo is that person. Pablo also runs the front desk even though Pablo is computer illiterate. One of Pablo's irritating little habits is padding the bill with duplicate services and overages, so check your bill carefully before paying. Notwithstanding Pablo, we have been fully satisfied with Belize Diving Services, and as such, are repeat customers. This is a professionally run company with diver safety first and foremost; all of the dive boats and equipment are top-notch and the boat crews are well-trained in diver safety and equipment maintenance, plus the crews are always friendly and helpful. There is a breakfast at BDS before leaving in the morning on the early departures, and the prepared lunch on board the dive boat is plentiful and tasty. The dive locations are mostly in the vicinity of Caye Caulker with some trips scheduled farther afield depending on the requests of the customers; to their credit, BDS does offer trips as north as the San Pedro area and the Blue Hole; however, BDS does not get as far south as Placentia for whale shark diving, which in any case would be an unbearably long day trip. And, if there is ever a problem of any kind, talk to Chip; he will do his best to sort it out to your satisfaction.
