Your dive staff is phenomenal!. We especially liked Shawn and Jerome. They knew their stuff and made us better divers.

Special thanks to Lucky who was an excellent dive guide and made us enjoy our diving much more. He was extremely knowledgeable and safe.

Never Dived Before


Never been under water before? Never blown any bubbles before?

The southern barrier reef has many shallow sand patches that allow new divers the opportunity to practice skills in a safe and calm environment whilst watching eagle rays, turtles and fish swim by – you may even be lucky enough to see some dolphins on one of your first dives. Still not sure if this is really for you? Try the Discover Scuba Diving course.


Here’s your chance to breathe underwater in a fun, convenient and safe way in a pool or pool-like body of water. This one-day course provides equipment orientation, shallow water exercises, basic level dive theory, and includes a real dive on the reef with an instructor. As soon as you complete the Discover Scuba Diving course with your instructor, you are on your way to an internationally recognized certification. That's because you will learn skills for the PADI Open Water Diver course during your Discover Scuba Diving adventure. If you and your instructor elect to practice these skills, they may be credited to the PADI Open Water Diver certification.

Here’s your chance – let’s dive in!

Know that you want to learn to dive but don’t have the time at home to do all the dives or maybe the water is just too cold…………..


The PADI Open Water Referral Course makes obtaining your dive certification convenient and fun. This course allows you to do your confined water dives and knowledge development sessions at home with one instructor and then do your 4 open water dives in a tropical ocean environment with a different instructor.  The actual certification dives you will do with Hamanasi will be out on Belize’s barrier reef where you can not only practice your dive skills but enjoy seeing our natural environment and loads of marine life as well.  Four dives, equipment and PADI certification is included in this course. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, ask about the PADI Junior Open Water Diver program.


Your entry ticket to the underwater world and a lifetime of intense adventure! The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular dive program in the world and is internationally recognized. You will learn about the fundamentals of scuba diving, including equipment and dive techniques. Your first dive experience will be in the pool or confined water to familiarize yourself with necessary skills, followed by four boat dives somewhere on our beautiful Belizean reef. This course takes 3 or 4 days. Advance home study is available – please enquire!

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification.
