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.

I dove with Amigos a few times. I did the blue hole dive with them which was great. I also did the snorkeling trip to Hol Chan and a night dive. All were great. The guides were professional and helpful, the equipment was good, and the dives were amazing--some of the best I've done anywhere in the world. I thought... More

My brother and I dove with Amigos del Mar 2 days, including the great Blue Hole. We enjoyed as ever and definitely we would go back to Amigos del Mar if we ever go back to San Pedro. The staff at the office was really nice and flexible offering different options for us. The equipment and the boats were also... More

First class group. Went out for the 3rd time with Amigos Del Mar and they were great as always. Took my son out for his first dives and he had an awesome time. We were in the "resort dive" group and there was an 11 yo out with us for his first dive. I don't think our guide ever took... More

My husband recently completed our PADI Open Water certification and could not leave Belize without visiting the Blue Hole. After comparing prices with several other dive shops in San Pedro we ultimately went with Amigos and we certainly didn't regret it!! The price of US $330pp (including tax) included three dives, breakfast, lunch, and bottomless run punch for the ride... More

I'm not an expert, but I have 50+ dives around the world and this shop is the most professional and customer centered I've ever experienced. We got a deal on a two tank local dive and a 3 tank Blue Hole trip. We we greeted each morning with fruit, coffee, and water. The local was average, however the service on... More

I enjoyed my trip with the family out the Blue Hole with these guys. It's a long boat ride but it was comfortable and pleasant. As dive masters they are very attentive. They swap gear out. They pay very close attention to each of their divers before entering the water. I was nervous to dive the blue hole, but they... More

Amigo Del Mar has top notch equipment and their instructors for the most part are very good. A half day dive leaves at about 9:00am and you are done by 11:00am so it is not really a half day. The instructors who came with us to Shark Ray Alley seemed very bored and not interested in being with the snorklers.... More

My husband and I dove the Blue Hole for the first time and I was a little nervous about it. But Maverick talked with us a long time on the trip over and by the time I was there I wasn't nervous at all. Big shout out to Maverick! We enjoyed our experience would highly recommend diving with Amigos to... More

Everything was perfect with the owner, Changa Paz, visiting with us as we arrived, next our boat, Captain Edgar welcomed us to the very comfortable boat and introduced us to Alex, Carlos, Maverick and the rest of the crew. The next couple of hours was spent visiting and enjoying the... More

Primary objective in coming to Belize was to dive the Blue Hole. I am a novice diver, with only 20 dives prior to arriving in Belize. Earlier in our trip, we did more shallow dives with another dive shop who seemed to spend a lot of time criticizing and propagating rumors about other dive shops - especially saying bad things...
