Great diving center. The prices are cheaper then the rest, their equipment is excellent, the staff is very well known where to take you and what to show you, let alone that they are extremely professional and are capable to handle in and out of water problems. Even though i was scared they assured me its all good and took... More

I am a 65 year old diver who completed my paid open water certification 2/2014. I went on an all-day trip with Blue Sea Belize today. I had a wonderful experience. The groups were divided in such a way that those with less experience were not with the more advanced divers. I felt very well card for, especially in the... More

Forward note Big Fish Dive Centre has been renamed to Blue Sea Dive centre, which I assume is because it was barred from PADI in 2012. It only re-opened in early December. We wanted to do our Advanced Open water PADI course. We were greeted by a lady who said they could do it, and asked for a 100% upfront... More

they organize both diving and snorkling day tour including breakfast and lung. Very well organized (i.e. speed boat, trained staff, great spot, good food)! a little bit expensive but anyway in line with other diving centers.

Dive instructor died at the Blue Hole the day I was there. Not safe, poorly run, shoddy equipment...choose another with higher ratings for this wonderful island on which to dive, Cay Caulker, Belize. There are several good ones.

We booked a padi dive at 9 am which never happened. We were then gently asked to come back at 10 then 1pm and so on waiting for the "teacher to come by plane" who finally arrived a 5pm... Big fish made us loose a whole day, they are clearly unprofessional and very cheap in their approach of diving. The... More

Booked a trip to the blue hole with them, was assured that they were 100% going, but after paying in full (make sure to request a receipt), & turning up at the dock early the following morning we were met by a local guy who looked like he'd just stumbled out of the reggae bar & told us that the...

Big fish diving will book diving to the blue hole, but the boat and equipment is all aqua scuba, so any reviews here not having a good blue hole experience for these reasons it is not actually with big fish. We found big fish helpful, and the equipment we tried on in their shop to get measurements for aqua scuba... More
