With the on premise POOL we can offer classes and trips from FREE TRY DIVES, to PADI Open Water certification, all the way to Dive Master.

It was a great experience diving three days. I was picked up and returned each day. Staff are very nice and helpful. I loved that it was a smaller boat and that the dive groups were small. The largest group was with 5 plus the dive master and my last dive was just me. Amazing water and only 10 minutes... More

My wife and I had the pleasure to visit the reef with the help of the Gongora family. You would be hard pressed to find a more welcoming, friendly and professional crew anywhere. We are anxious to repeat our experience! Pierre ( Pete ) and Angela Quebec City Canada

I really enjoyed my experience with Scuba School and receiving my Advanced Open Water certification PADI. The staff and instructors were professional, knowledgeable and helpful and the size of class was small. They picked me up and dropped off from my hotel and provided appropriate gears. They always responded to my questions via email or phone promptly and helped me... More

My adult family (67-25) and I had the good fortune to book with Scuba School and Family Dive Center Belize over the Thanksgiving holidays. Their focus on safety was reassuring and their diving skills impressive and the patience of instructors admirable. It was a dream come true to dive with my adult children and extended family, and Scuba School made... More

I chose Scuba School because of their commitment to safety and booked 4 days of diving for my daughter. She was going to dive without us most days, so wanted to be certain she would have the best experience and be safe in the open waters and without parents. Scuba School staff were great to work with and made her... More

Getting my "Open Water certification" with Scuba School Belize was an amazing experience. I couldn't recommend them any higher. I'm a Mountain Guide, on the worlds tallest mountains, and I really appreciate the knowledge, emphasis on safety and teaching techniques I had the privilege to encounter at Scuba School Belize. After my certification I did a few more dives with... More

Absolutely amazing diving. The staff are fantastic. They worked with my brother and me to make the schedule of dives best for us. We dove with Jimmer each day and he took great care of us, fit the dives to our skills and interests very well. Definitely recommend very highly. Plan to be back as soon as I can.

We had a great time at Scuba School Belize. They're very warm, fun, and generally awesome people. They are great instructors and really help you nail the basic skills necessary for the OW certification. Highly recommend getting certified here if you are looking to get the certification done in Belize.

Before arriving, I emailed a few dive shops to organize my trip. Scuba school has instant messaging and helped me in real time. All of their advice was tailored to my personal/my family's needs and situation. They sent me follow up emails and called my hotel when I arrived (when I was without a personal phone). They made everything so... More
