Comments Diving was excellent with large critters in abundance. Large nurse sharks and huge grouper were all over the reefs. Many nice green morays and turtles to video. There were several spotted eagle rays and some "jagged tail stingrays" the size of eagle rays. At least that was the name given them by the dive guides.

The water was very comfortable being in the 82-84 deg. F. range and I did not wear a wet suit on any of the dives including night dives.

The Amigos del Mar dive guides were super helpful on board and in the water. Dive boats were well maintained. Back-roll entry was the best method of entry since diving was done on the windward side of Ambergris Caye and the dive boats did not have dive platforms low to the water at the stern.

The dive guides and boat captains were most helpful with photography and video equipment and treated it very gently.

The dive guides and boat captains went out of their way to see that the divers enjoyed every dive beginning with helping during suiting up and getting back into the boats.

This was the best diving we have had in twenty (20) years of diving and we will return to dive again in Belize very shortly. On a scale of 1-100 with 100 being best, Belize was a 100 for best diving compared to a 1 for the dead-sea-like Fiji diving that we did in March of this year.

When will we return to dive the Caribbean? This month. And Fiji? When the Caribbean dries up.

The Sunbreeze Hotel was clean, comfortable and nice and the food excellent both at the hotel and the neighboring restaurants. The staff was most helpful. The people of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye were very helpful and friendly.

This is truly an excellent dive destination as it took us only about two (2) hours from Houston to Belize City on a Continental 757 plus a thirty (30) minute prop plane ride to Ambergris Caye. The Sunbreeze Hotel is less than one-half block from the San Pedro, Ambergris Caye airport.
