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.

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

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...

Loved our time learning how to scuba! We did the discover scuba class and got a personal trainer! They were running a deal and it was well worth our money! If you are wanting to try scuba diving but not wanting to spend money or time on the certification...Discover Scuba is a great option!

A marvellous experience! We went for a full day trip with three snorkeling stops, one of them being The Blue Hole. Our guide Maverick made our day. He was professional and had a great sense of humour. Additionally, their service and attention to customers were honest and real, without being exaggerated (something that is hard to find here in San... More

Amigos Del Mar was highly recommended to us by several hotels and locals. They have the largest dive boat on the island which is very nice to have during the rough ride out to the Blue Hole. The staff, Maverick, Juan, Edgar, and George are a jovial group who will make you feel safe during the dive and will have... More

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!
