Chris and his crew made diving effortless. The crew assisted with the gear and fortunately I was paired up with Chris the dive master. Chris was very attentive and made me feel relaxed (I can get anxious at times). We went to the Fowl Caye area which is a wonderland of tropical fish and reef with beautiful colors. Very clear...

We spent 2 weeks there in July, and it was heavenly. It was hot, but the water was cool and perfect for snorkeling. We saw dolphins and LOTS of birds. The shops had beautiful hand crafted products, a must buy. It was affordable and comfortable.

Dove with Great Guana Cay Dive. Troy, Maria and their staff were outstanding. Not only are they friendly and knowledgeable about the area, they showed great concern about taking care of the reefs and marine life in the area.

Great place to visit for the day or to stay for a week. Not much has changed over the last 15 years. Known for Nippers and Grabbers!
