First trip to AC - arriving late Jan 19 for a week. My husband and his dive buddy will want to go to the Blue Hole and another site - does anyone have reccommendation for another interesting location and a dive shop?

If you're going that far out, I'd recommend Amigos Del Mar, In fact, I'd recommend them for any dives you do. Good people, lots of local experience and they've got the best dive boat on the island for long trips, IMO--a Pro 48. Good staff as well and a bunch of smaller boats for close-in reef diving. I'd also recommend them for a trip out to Turneffe. The Elbow and The Aquarium are really memorable dives for me. It's a long way out to the Blue Hole and Turneffe. If there are any seas at all, you'll be glad you're in a big, comfortable boat. For what it's worth, and this is my personal opinion, the Blue Hole's not that big a deal. There are a lot of other much more beautiful and interesting dives to make from AC.

I've done the above mentioned trip & yea, once you get to the hole, you can't even tell except for the "crust" around the top edge here & there. We did Aquarium, stopped at Lighthouse Reef,(which was a treat & 1/2)as well as Halfmoon Caye. Some great wall dives on this trip & some good snorkeling for those who don't dive. This included lunch. This is my opinion only and yes, there are some good dives closer in, but I wouldn't miss this trip if I were you and Amigos is the only company for me.

Thanks! We appreciate the info. Any other things (other than diving) that you would suggest for our 1 week trip to AC?
