we were there in April 2012 and the operation was a mess. new management who were too lose and unorganized. old time dive masters (2) were good, but rest of staff untrained and manager's wife should never lead a dive! wonderful rooms and location and pretty good food. I hope they get the operation under control.

Apparently there is has been another change in management, since everything was running very smoothly when we were there in April 2013. Manager Paul welcomed our input. Divemasters, boat crews and wait staff were very competent and helpful. Based on our experience, we definitely recommend Blackbird Caye.
