Coming to AC Nov. 25th with 7 non-divers. Would like to get in a dive or two but am leary about diving without my buddy. Was down last year and dove many sites but don't recall Turneffe(?) dive site. After reading through some posts, I think I'd like to see it. Where is it and what are your thoughts on diving single?? Amigo del Mar is all over this board and sound like decent outfit. Where do they operate out of? Thanks!!

Getting conflicting info on the Pier Lounge's Chicken Drop event (one I don't want to miss this time around). Some places say 4:30, others say 7:00. Which is it??!

will gladly be your dive buddy on some days, I dive a few mornings a week. I dive with Amigo's Del Mar. The reason they are all over this board is they are the best. Very professional, knowledgeable, and fun to dive with. They even have fresh fruit after your dives. ALSO, YOU DO NOT REALLY NEED A DIVE BUDDY WITH AMIGO'S. I used to be a solo traveler several times here and they will pair you up with someone or if it is an odd amount of people you will be lucky enough to have the divemaster as your buddy!!!

As far as the chicken drop during busy season there are usually 2 a night on Wed and sometimes Fri that is why you see 2 different times. It is usually around 6pm though. Stop by their in the afternoon of the chicken drop and verify.

to answer your question on where they are...they are right in town, two doors down from Fido's and will pick you up/drop you off where you are staying.

Amigos del Mar has their dock, shop and operation out front of Lilly's hotel & restaurant/Cholo's bar, near the Mayan Princess Hotel.

I've been a single diver with them innumerable times.

Turneffe is out at the Atolls. Takes close to a couple of hours to get there and again to get back. It's an all day trip with 3 dives included.

I hope you enjoy the chicken drop. I've never been much into that.

Thanks for the info, I'll contact Amigo's when I get to AC. Ke, I may take you up on your offer to dive. I am an experienced diver, but just never had to dive solo.
Seashell, I'm not sure I'm into the chicken drop but it seems like the touristy thing to do, and how many places can you say you placed a bit on chicken s**t??

I never have a dive buddy and they pair me up or if it is an odd amount of people I am lucky to get one of the terrific divemasters!!!


TONY, RENE, ANDY, FELIPE, JUAN, SHMEL, JIM, EDDIE...THEY ARE ALL AWESOME!

Just PM me a day in advance so I get it and I will coordinate 2 dives that week. I am flexible. If I do not get back to you ask one of the above people above and they will know who to contact to reach me. No Sat or Sun for me normally, but will consider wink hahaha.

sorry, I did not know caps are yelling. I had my cap lock on, that is all so I rewrote it but left used caps on the people's names to stand out as they are important.
