Can anyone recommend a dive shop? We'll be staying at The Palms from 7/25 - 8/8.

I have been diving before but my daughter is newly certified.

baraboodish, we are staying at the Palms 8/5 - 8/19. Maybe we'll see you? We hope to be new divers by the time we arrive (We do our open water certification 4th of July weekend) and plan to use Amigos del Mar. They are hightly recommended by many boarders. See you in SP! 41 days and counting, mobunny cool

Amigos del Mar is theive shop I would use. The others are OK but Amigos is FABULOUS! Lots of attention to detail and safety; things for every level of diver...can't do any better in San Pedro

I have been diving numerous times on Ambergris Caye and always use Amigos del Mar. They are by far and away the best, most experienced, professional and fun shop on the island!

Protech is a good choice. Excellent rental equipment (all newer Scubapro), nice boats and friendly staff. They also have nitrox and provide dive computers with their rentals. all the guys there will take care of you.

Is there a BAD shop on the island? Amigos Del Mar is good, but they are also BIG. There are many small, independent operators on the island who don't always get their fare shake.
How about speaking up for the little guy?
I've used Hustler Eco Tours and Ched Chabral (Reef Adventures) since 1998.

We (family of 4 )dove with Ramon's this June for the 10 days we were there. Very wonderful experience even though the windy conditions made for less than favorable boat re-entrys!. Have fun!

Protech rules. They are really good. Ask for Roni.

I know Amigos is the most popular dive shop, but I have always stayed at The Palms and always used Ramon's for our diving. First, it's right next door andvery convenient. You can get a locker right there to store your gear so you don't have to schlep it around every day. Second, the staff are friendly and competent, always showing us a safe, good dive and catering to our needs. I'm going back in a few weeks and will be diving with Ramon's again. Our favorite divemaster is Palma, a friendly young man who really works to find interesting sea life and show us a good time.
