We had a last minute change in plans with another (bigger) shop on Caye Caulker, and we lucked into booking with Black Durgon. Simeon and Al took us out for a quick refresher dive and then a lovely tour through a channel and along the reef. If you're looking for a custom plan, want to dive with a smaller group,... More

Had a good dive to Esmeralda. March dives include more wind and rougher Waters. They have a decent mid size dive boat which was comfortable during the rough water outside the reef. Got us down quickly, dealt with gear issues promptly, was very attentive to us. Had a crew of 2 to set up gear, get you in the water... More

I am a none certified diver, was given a very good course both on land and in the water. The staff were very professional and I was able to dive twice about 45 minutes each dive. I would highly recommend Black Durgon Jeff and Toni

We made it out to the Blue Hole and did two reef dives, which were great but on the way to the Blue Hole one of the motors broke down and that's where the trouble began. Reason it broke down: we hit something. We were told that we hit a big fish, but I suspect that we hit a big... More

In both dives we saw a lot of nursesharks up close, as well as some turtles and a green moray eel. Simeon took some nice GoPro photos during the dive which we could download... More

+ Good gear, good briefing. Relatively small group (6 people). - DM is grabbing, throwing, pushing nurse sharks around. Totally lacks respect of marine life. Not recommended.
