Comments We dove here as part of a group. Hotel, resort and dive dock are superb. One of the best beaches on Ambergris Caye. Dock is amazing. Dive shop and facilities are close to shore with docking for multiple boats. There is snorkeling off the dock and a gorgeous palapa at the end for relaxing out of the sun and catching the breeze. Gift shop was well stocked and the staff helpful. Dive dock was convenient to the resort but strangely you could NOT walk from the dock to the resort without walking on the sand. Multiple dive boats of varying sizes and types. Larger boats were roomy and had plenty of cover from the sun. Rental gear appeared to be in good condition. Staff was able to help with minor equipment repairs. Dive crews were helpful but seemed a bit lax on some things (didn't consistently check Nitrox, etc). I saw at least one diver on another boat having beer for lunch and diving afterwards. Dives were guided in small groups and ascent was as a group. Almost never went beyond 55 minutes. Tons of sharks - both nurse and reef. Many turtles. Good number of groupers. There was a TON of bleached coral noted. Very sad. Overall good experience but could be more careful regarding rules and regs.
