Comments Belize Diving Services (BDS) is located next to the Iguana Inn (very nice hotel with pool) on Caye Caulker. BDS is a first rate operation. Starting with the office that is air conditioned with a bar service for post dive beers, everything went smoothly. They run a big Newton boat to the local reefs. The DMs were young local guys who were friendly and helpful. I dove two days. Day 1 was a trip to north Turneffe reef. There was nothing special about the reef; we followed the wall and spotted a couple of little animals. There were not many larger fish. Day 2 was to San Pedro reef. The swells were huge, making entry back onto the boat quite a challenge. Again, not much to see other than lots of nurse sharks. Overall, the reefs seemed overfished.
