Hamanasi Adventure Desk offers many adventure options while staying in Belize. We opted for a half day snorkel adventure which departs the property at 8:30am and returns by 1pm. We weren't resort guests at Hamanasi, but they picked us up from our hotel (Hopkins Bay) a mere 4 miles away. Boat was clean and spacious, staff was friendly and knowledgeable... More

We were booked with another dive shop and they had boat troubles last minute so we walked down the street and inquired with Hamanasi. We were able to get right on a boat leaving that morning. The experience was great. We rented gear, and it was all in great condition. Dive computers were included in the rental price (many places... More

I was in Belize 11 years ago, and came back for the purpose of diving. We did 7 tank dives in the week we were there. The dive staff was very nice and they accommodated us doing a specialty outer reef dive even though we didn't reach the necessary 8 people. The diving can speak for itself, it's one of... More

We stayed in Hamanasi Resort ( in Hopkins, Belize) for our 25th anniversary for 7nights and had 5 excursions. We chose 2 snorkels and one dive. Hamanasi is on the beach and is very private. The boats are at the dock and take guests out for either snorkeling or scuba. The snorkeling was great! We had 4 couples on the... More

My dive buddy and I chose Hamanasi Resort for our vacation because we wanted a mix of diving and inland adventures -- guided excursions to Mayan ruins, jungle nature hikes, canoeing on a tropical river, birding, etc. For such a blend, Hamanasi was spot-on. In fact, I'd give it a 5. The dive staff were tops in terms of safety... More

My boyfriend and I (certified divers; he open-water, and I advanced open-water) were staying at Jungle Jeanie's and were directed to ask at Hamanasi if we wanted to dive. We took a taxi the first morning to see the potential of going the next day. Unfortunately since we weren't guests we didn't receive any kind of warm welcome by the... More

My son and I did six dives with Dive Hamanasi over three days. Each of my two daughters did two dives--one day each. We're unanimous in the view that this is a great dive company. They limit the number of divers on the boat, they go to spectacular sites on the Southeast Reef with terrific animal life and the dives... More

Everyone was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Cdog, BigDaddy, Martin are the best! All 4 tanks were at the Southeast Reef. Equipment was like new. Boat was typical dive boat, well maintained. Safety was paramount. They only run a trip to Blue Hole when they have 8 divers to go, 2.5-3.0 hours out to the reef. They do daily runs... More

The dive staff really made us feel comfortable and made each trip a unique and fun experience. We did three two tank dive days. Each dive was different and we saw some amazing creatures!
