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 can really recommend this dive shop! The staff is friendly, the equipment great and the dive masters are well educated. The prices are fair for two dives and we could even wish where to go. We will come back for sure the next time!

Very informative boat captain. Dive masters were great. Especially helping my wife with her dive. She felt very comfortable and well cared for under the water.

We took two trips with ADM, on our 7 day trip to Belize. The crews and dive masters made these trips special. The lunch provided was delicious and the diving? Completely amazing. They gave very precise instructions and took all necessary precautions for our safety. We hired a private dive master for blue hole trip, as was advised by the... More

We visited Ambergris Caye in late May for several days of diving. We scheduled a trip to the Blue Hole with Amigos del Mar through another dive shop. They picked us from the pier at 5:30 am and then took us to their shop where a light breakfast was available while boarding the large boat. The ride to Lighthouse Atoll... More

I was in Ambergris Caye for a week's diving with Ramon's Village Resort. I spent one day with Amigos del Mar for a Blue Hole dive and two wall dives. Ramon's did not have enough divers interested in the Blue Hole to send out their boat. However, they arranged our going with Amigos. Amigos operation is good with the appropriate... More

Dont ever use them. Booked a trip to Blue Hole and they don't watch for your safety as divers. Oxygen tank problem. They have bad attitude. People working at the shop has bad attitude. That itself should alert you how this company works. Is this what you are looking for? A miserable experience for $500 ?? And you came all... More

I opted to spend the day with Amigos Del Mar all day dive and snorkel trip. The crew and guides were awesome! We were fed well and refreshments were always available -- great comfort being on the water all day! We had a great lunch while at Half Moon Caye as well. The equipment was in good shape and I...

This dive center is correct, prices are normal. The divemasters do their job but not more, do not expect an improved dive experience thanks to them.

We dove with Amigos for the blue hole and 2 dives at lighthouse atoll. All of the dives were spectacular (the 2nd was my favourite but the hole is awesome and full of reef sharks which was great) and we were divided into our groups by experience so we were able to stay down longer and do more technical diving....
