We are planning at trip to AC in a few weeks and were told the resort we are staying in uses Ambergris Divers. We can't find any info on them anywhere. Has anyone out there used them? What size are their boats? Easy on/off access? How many people per boat? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

I *think* (don't quote me on this) that Ambergris Divers is a new outfit. I can find out for sure, and the contact info,if you want. If it's who I think it is, he used to work for another diving outfit, and just opened his own.

If you find the contact info and could forward it on, I would greatly appreciate it. I just feel a little strange using a dive company until I check it out first. Look forward to (and *really* appreciate) your help!

Jill, We used Ambergris Divers during our stay over Christmas. They are excellent. They a are well financed new operation with new boats and equipment, the largest being a 45' custom built boat that they just received when we were there. A door opens in the side for entry/exit as it uses three 200 h.p. outboard motors. I believe the head guy Roberto used to work for Aquadives. We also stayed at Banana Beach, but booked directly as I'm not too fond of paying the extra 5%. Ambergris's dock is ashort walk from B.B., but they pick you up at the dock anyway. I would definately use them again.

Jill, They use a smaller boat for trips to the local reef holds 6-8 people I believe, we only had 5 when we went. The larger boat holds probably 20 or so, we had 12 on a trip to the Blue Hole. It also has a head. They bring snorkelers on the Blue Hole trips and also the night dives, so there wasn't a big crowd diving.
