#219376 - 05/09/05 09:40 PM First Time Diving on Caye Caulker - Is Frenchies a Good Pick?
BostonBelizean Offline
Hi folks -

My wife and I will be completing our open water cert. from Caye Caulker later this month - looking for the best (reasonably priced) dive operator on Caulker. Would that be Frenchies or otherwise?

Thanks in advance for your kind consideration, and please feel free to send discrete feedback directly to me rather than publicly posting, if you'd like:

last year, i dove with frenchies and belize diving services, and by far, the professionalism and friendliness of belize diving services blew frenchie's away. if fact, i found several of the employees at frenchies to be down right rude!! go with belize diving services!! you'll be very happy!!

i found Belize diving services dull. When another diver convinced me to try Frenchies,it saved my dive trip.

My personal pick is Paradise Down, located in the same building as the Oceanside on front street. They are PADI, have a great staff and really nice boat. I've gone with others but keep returning to Paradise Down.

dull? .... the people? the dives? it's up to you if you want to translate professionalism and safety consciousness as dullness i suppose. i can't comment on frenchies though as i have never done any diving with them.

I found professionalism and safety consciousness in both dive shops and heard the same about Paradise Down. I didn't mistake that and it is not right to insult me. I notice scubalady says that she didn't dive at Frenchies but still says that Beize Dive service is much better.
She is just the kind of overbearing and uniformed diver who should dive only with belize diving from here on.

We dove with Frenchies last year and found them to be quite curtious and helpful.

I would avoid Paradise Down: They had a very bad, near fatal boat accident in March. It was an accident (captain's error), but the thing that really irked me was the lack of response from the owner of the dive outfit: He never apologised for anything that went wrong - even though 2 people were airlifted off the island, one with an arm torn to shreds by the prop - long story short: he is an unapologetic fool who doesn't deserve anyone's business.
Frenchies seemed like te best bet.
