Established in 1987, Amigos Del Mar is a SSI and SDI resort facility which specializes in full-service diving, instruction, snorkeling, and fishing expeditions and is ideally situated in the heart of San Pedro Town. Our boats provide a convenient complimentary pick-up service at most of the island's major hotel docking establishments. We provide local diving expeditions on a daily basis starting with two dives at 9 am and two afternoon dives commencing at 1 pm. Night dives are also available upon request. In addition to the local diving excursions, trips to Belize's renowned offshore atolls including Turneffe, "The Elbow", Turneffe North, and The Great Blue Hole situated at Lighthouse Reef are also available. All offshore packages are full day excursions which consist of three dives and include continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks.

My husband and I purchased the snorkeling excursion through Amigos Del Mar. Our guide was Louis and our captain was Erik. We have previously snorkeled in Maui, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, etc. This excursion was by far the best experience we've ever had. Louis, our guide, was fantastic. He snorkeled as well and led us to nurse sharks, sting rays, &... More

I have not gone out with this group. Perhaps they are wonderful to their customers. The guide certainly thought his customers were more important than my safety when he took his boat to Iguana Reef, our hotel in Caye Caulker, to show them the sea horses. I was swimming next to the sea horse ranch net, which is supposed to... More

If you are a more experienced diver and appreciate a little more autonomy, Amigos Del Mar gives it to you. They don't check you every 15 min but make it your responsibility to monitor your own depth and oxygen consumption. As it should be. They have a knack for finding amazing dive spots. This trip, they took us to a... More

We booked with Amigos del Mar to travel to the Blue Hole - however we were unfortunate enough to suffer an engine failure on the route. The crew were really friendly and offered the choice to head back or stay and dive a site nearer - at Turneffe atol. We were told a partial refund would be given due to... More

Had a good day travelling to the Blue Hole and diving/snorkeling. Also we went to Half Moon Key. Boat was great and fast. A little expensive when you add in the park fee (US$40 each) plus tip, but quite an experience. My only criticism is that, despite their name, I found them not very friendly at all. Ambergris Caye is... More

Saw some hatching blue-footed booby birds, crabs, pelicans etc. Well equipped boat, clean. Sun deck, plenty of space. After each dive there was fruits/sandwiches for everyone, well appreciated! Lunch included. The staff... More

I was recommend by a different dive shop to dive the Big Blue Hole with Amigos Del Mar and let me tell you that with these guys you get high quality professionals that know what they are doing. The whole crew is very detail oriented in giving out instructions, punctual, and patient. I really appreciate the patience that they demonstrate... More
