This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.
