Comments Our travel agent who specializes in dive travel suggested staying at the Sunbreeze hotel (very nice) and diving with Hugh Parkey's (not so nice). We pre-paid for 10 dives, and wanted to use them. The first day it was windy and we were told no diving. Their dive boat was on the mainland for repairs, so I suspect a broken boat was also a problem. They had only one boat. The second day we were told no diving due to rough conditions. We asked for a refund but were told no refunds. They got their boat back, but did not want to take us diving. I called the travel agent to complain so she got on them, and they finally took us out for a dive inside the reef, but it was like pulling teeth to get them to go out.

We booked a trip to the Blue Hole with Amigos Del Mar, and they were great. The trip was phenomenal--don't miss it. Amigos del Mar is great. Lots of boats, dedicated dive crew, good briefings etc.
