Hi,
In my opinion dont dive with any operator on Cay Caulker, cowboys who will take anyone no matter what certification level, to 40m at the Blue Hole.
I suggest West end divers or Reef Gliders (also in West End) as I know the managers at both (I live on Utila).
Now Utila I can highly recommend, well I live and work here. boat trips in the afternoon are a maximum of 20 minutes for two tank trips, its also cheaper than Roatan or Belize.
Let me know if you want more info!

I just got back from a trip to Playa Del Carmen while I was there I took a trip to Belize to dive The Blue Hole It had been my dream for so long the owner of the Dive Operation I was using in Playa Del Carmen organised a trip for me and came along too.

I stayed in San Pedro and dived with Amigos Del Mar it was a long boat ride out to the site and a very early start but well worth the effort.
Amigos Del Mar was well run and the guides very very safety concious.
The Blue Hole is a deep dive but the way it was executed with the guides I have to say it was a very easy dive. While doing our safety stop 8 Carribean Reef Sharks came out to play it was awsome.
The reef a Half Moon Quay was stunning I have never seen a reef like it with the amazing coarl formations it was like diving in a beautifull garden.
For 8 years I have dreamed of diving Belize it lived upto my expectations and was well worth the long journey from Playa Del Carmen.
The little town of San Pedro has to be seen to be believed, I was on a budget so stayed in a cheap hotel but that was clean and comfortable you can of course stay up market if you want to.
We got the boat from Corozal and the taxi driver waiting at the dock took us to a hotel that met with our requirements.
I found the people in Belize really friendly and helpfull they could not do enough to help me.

My only regret of the whole stay was I could not stay longer but I will definately go back.

I have just enjoyed a fabulous holiday in the Caribbean around the islands of Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines with a new adventure holiday combining sailing on a catamaran and enjoying scuba diving on remote reefs wherever the boat took us. This was an amazing experience to discover both sailing and diving in remote places in the Caribbean

The crew of the caribbbean based Fab Safaris were really welcoming and friendly enjoying tranquil meals in the middle of the caribbean sea with few people about.

I really recommend this type of holiday if you enjoy scuba diving or sailing.

Grenada is a wonderful place to dive if you like wrecks. There are so many to choose from, including the Bianca C, which isnt far off shore at all..
