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 went to Belize for vacation and I wanted to try out diving. I was nervous and also having allergy issues. I came to Amigo's because a local gave me the recommendation and I am so happy I chose them. Alonzo was my instructor and Hector was our boat driver and they both made me feel so comfortable. Alonzo is... More

We weren't sure if it would be worth it to snorkel at the Blue Hole, but we had a fantastic experience with Amigos Del Mar. They seemed to take safety very seriously, which we appreciated. The ride is very bumpy, so if you are prone to any motion sickness or have a weak stomach, take meds the night before and... More

Horrid experience and customer service! They cancelled our day to the Blue hole at 3 pm the day before! Manager and owner would not call me, staff said it was due to other divers canceling at the last minute, which is clearly not our fault. This was a special birthday trip and we had the landed to spend over $500... More

The main purpose of our trip to Belize was to snorkel the Great Blue Hole. It's about a 2.5 hour boat ride from Ambergris Caye to Lighthouse Reef where the GBH is located, and there are 3 stops for both diving and snorkelling. It's pretty much a 12 hour excursion. The boat, the crew, and the guides were all 1st... More

Completed our open water dives in February with Antonio. He was excellent! All staff at Amigos treated us very well. Brian was along to support our youngest who couldn't dive yet. She did bubble makers. Brian was extremely helpful and our daughter found a deeper love for the sea (thanks to Antonio and Brian). We are very happy to have... More

Our Family completed our open water PADI certification with Amigos. We had a great experience and was able to dive for three days under the $450 dollar fee and still got in 4 dives. We had a great instructor who took us all by our own pace to complete all parts of our training. Belize is a beautiful place to... More

This was by far one of the best dive shops we've used. We dove at the Blue Hole and two other locations. It was an all day trip but well worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. From getting our gear, to getting us in and out of the water, everything was super smooth. They provided a light... More

We booked both the full day Blue Hole / Half Moon Caye / Aquarium and half day Hol Chan / Shark Ray Alley snorkeling trips through Amigos del Mar. We decided to book with them based solely on the size of their boat traveling to the Blue Hole (biggest on island) and were pleasantly surprised with their staff and other... More

Well I must say that this was one of the top 3 dives I have ever been on! Palau being number 1 on my list but this was a very close 2nd. The crew was fantastic! The boat is the biggest and best on the island and super comfortable. Very informative dive masters and great at their job! The food... More

We were diving with Amigos Del Mar on February 2017. All stuff was professional and helpful. The conditions was rough couple of fist days, but our captain was very experienced and able to go through big waves nicely, safely and without trouble (which I can’t say about others boats around). Since this is bigger dive shop, it gave us more... More
