Comments Other than our camera troubles (which were our fault) I LOVED Ambergis Caye. We actually ended up leaving Captain Morgans and staying in San Pedro because we liked the town so much. Real laid back and everyone was so FRIENDLY. Dove with Ambergris Caye Divers at first but switched to Amigos del Mar due to too many people on the boats with my father and I the only ones with any experience. on Amigos del Mars' boats we only had 8 divers and the two divemasters would seperate the newbies so the rest of us didn't get bored. They were VERY attentive and made sure we saw everything. The Blue Hole was worth it just for the experience (deep, dark and cold) and the two wall sites we dove afterwards were mind blowing in vis and abundance of life. Dad and I, being old Florida crackers, just dove in our T-shirts. While we looked silly, other than at the Blue Hole site we were comfortable. I thought the food was great, too-everywhere we went. This is probably because I like things spicy and they had no trouble accomadating that request. Highly recommended. One negative thing-why are the flights so expensive?
