We did the full day snorkeling tour with our 8 and 11 year olds and another family of four. It was the 8 of us and another couple. This was a great amount in comparison to some packed boats we saw coming from the cruise ships.

This trip had a lot of parts. Hol Chan reef, Shark Ray Alley, looking for manatee, 2.5 hours at Caye Caulker, then feeding terrapin and looking for dolphins. Melvin, Brian and Eric provided us an amazing day.

We might have just had great luck but we did see two manatee and that was just incredible. Our 8 year old got a little nervous after the first stop and went back to the boat. Amazingly our guides worked with her and got her back out in the water for the manatees and she got to see them. I was so grateful for that and she ended up saying this was her favorite part of her trip.

The time on Caye Caulker was unexpected (to me at least) but it was a great addition to the day and we got to explore the town for a few hours. The Lazy Iguana restaurant had great food and swimming spot. I wished we had brought googles for the kids for this part (or the snorkel gear from the boat).

After the island we stopped to look at the sea horses which is done from a dock (and not in the water) but then we headed out to look for dolphins. We were in luck. There were a few out playing and we swam with them swimming in the area for at least 30 minutes. Again the guides helped our daughter with bringing out a ring to hold on and helped her spot them in the water while we were all looking too.

Our guides were Melvin, Eric and Brian and we highly recommend this group for your snorkeling.

We were hooked up with Amigos through our friend Chip at Palapa Tours. We were picked up by boat at our dock at 5:30am, and taken over to Amigos. We got our dive gear arranged, had a basic buffet breakfast and off to the boat. It's a long ride out to the Blue hole (approx 3 hours each way) so you get the opportunity to meet some new folks. The ride can be a bit bumpy, but the boat is large enough to handle it. The crew was attentive and professional. They explained everything thoroughly and there were no surprises. There are three dives we went on and they went according to plan. Jorge, our dive master, handled our group of eight quite well. We recommend Amigos!

We dove with Amigos Del Mar 3 days (6 dives) and couldn't have been more happy with our choice. Extremely professional and organized and focused on safety. The shop is located right at the water taxi pier, and all our dives were within a 5-10 minute boat ride. Went back to the shop for our interval time for fruit, cookies and water. DMs Tony and Shamir, Renee on the boat and Kyle in the office - all very professional and top notch.

These people are amazing! They are one of the most thorough dive shops I’ve ever been diving with. They have high standards for safety.
We did the blue hole trip. It was exactly what I wanted. A unique sight, then at the next dive sharks and beautiful coral, a little time on a beautiful little island before our 3rd dive.

Great people!!!
