The resort I will be staying at uses Ambergris Divers for their dive operation. Does anyone have experience, good or bad, with Ambergris Divers they will share?

Thanks

lots of comments - have you done a "search" - upper right?.

And you can book anyone on island - nearly all will come pick you up on your dock.

Our experience was not too good. We had not done any diving before. The resort dive went well and enjoyed it a lot. The next day we went for a 1 tank dive and were put in a boat with 5 PADI certified divers and taked outside the reef. There was only 1 dive master for all of us and things didn't go too well. I don't think that we will us them again but it might have been an isolated case with them and they might be great. Take it for what it is worth.

D-I-T-T-O both lines...

Having said that, I found them about #3 of many, many....you could do a lot worse.
#1. Amigos del Mar
#2. Protech (sorry P2)

Having dove with Brion and Junior at Protech, and also with Roberto before he was with Ambergris Divers, I was surprised to hear that you were unsatisfied. All three individuals were exceptional dive masters. I haven't dove with Amigos so I have no comment. There are many good
dive shops on the island. Bottom Time is a great dive shop, and Rudy Duran is a great dive master. BT also does beach barbeques and snorkle trips. Look under "goods and services" for contact information. Have fun!

I used Amigos del Mar during Thanksgiving week and they were great. I highly recommend them.

Geez, I leave for a while and somebody uses my moniker / pseudonym …

Where you at in Idaho?

I don’t think it really matters that much what dive op you use, the diving at Ambergris Caye is mediocre at best…

I dove with blue hole back in october and had a ball! Robby and brian are awesome they will show you all kinds of neat marine life underwater and watch you very closely. They are very friendly. They also operate deep penetration adventure tours.
catchy name eh?

Idaho_diver, sorry to use the same "moniker/pseudonym." I had no idea I was moving in on your turf. I will let you keep the creepy blinking eye thing all to yourself. Who knows maybe I'll create a new name.

I live in Rexburg, where are you from?

I hope the diving is a bit better than mediocre. It has to better than diving in Idaho. I use to teach scuba in Hawaii and ever since I can't get very excited to dive in a cold river or lake. I would rather fly fish in cold water than dive in cold water.
