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.

We did the all day blue hole excursion and had a great experience. The staff was friendly and efficient, very safety conscientious and attentive. They served multiple snacks throughout the day so we never went hungry (although the lunch left a lot to be desired) Overall we had a great experience with this company!

I booked a trip through another dive operator and was told that I would be going with Amigos del Mar to the Blue Hole. After some issues with the other operator (affiliated with AdM), we decided to cancel the Blue Hole trip and called AdM. Their cancellation policy states that you must call before 3pm the day before. I called... More

Maverick was absolutely amazing! He made my first snorkeling experience one that I will remember for a lifetime. He was extremely knowledgable and knew the name of everything that I pointed to. I am already planning to come back just because of him, THANK YOU MAVERICK 😃

This is a great dive shop. It's basically got everything you would expect from a serious dive company. Their boats and equipment are great, and the guides are nice. They serve you food on the dive trip and are very safe. If you're looking to do the blue hole, this is the company to use.

My husband and I went to San Pedro for the last leg of our honeymoon, and we knew that we wanted to do a lot of snorkeling while we were there. Our first day in San Pedro, we walked the beach and ventured into all of the dive shops to get a feel for what they offered. We immediately had... More

We didn’t select Amigos on our own. We purchased a dive package through our hotel (Xanadu) and THEY chose Amigos. Our dive package included a 3-tank dive to Blue Hole, 3 2-tank dives, and a snorkel. Typically while we are on vacation we only do a few days of diving, making sure to hit the best dives the location has... More
