David Thomas Cal found the need of creating a dive center to accommodate diving at an affordable cost and high level standards while maintaining an emphasis on the fun in diving. BMA originally opened it’s doors in 2008 as Belize Down Under and then later in 2011 became San Pedro Mystical Adventures. In mid 2015 we found the need of making our adventures more magical yet keeping the mystical spiri

We were walking down the beach after a windsurfing experience didn't quite work out with another company. David approached us and offered a manatee snorkel/tarapin/bird/sea horse experience. What followed was one of our favorite days in San Pedro. He and Tyrell hooked us up with a unique, personalized experience. It truly felt like a trip among 4 friends. Very chill,... More

David is 3rd generation Belizean and knows every place, every fish and everything about the water and the reefs off Ambergris Caye. He was extremely helpful and patient getting our friend started on their first time experience. His boat and equipment are clean and well kept. His little shop blew away with the hurricane, but he can be found patiently... More

I can't say enough good things about my friend, David Cal and Magical Adventures. Over many trips to Ambergris Caye, I have used him as a Divemaster and tour guide, and he has never disappointed. Although his red "beach shack'' was damaged and dismantled after the August hurricane, you can still find him or Captain Rus on the dock between... More

We took our two 18 year olds snorkeling for their first time with Magical Adventures. David, our tour guide, was outstanding! He was incredibly knowledgeable about the various types of coral and the sea life. We saw all kinds of beautiful fish, a spiny lobster and and eel. We swam with sharks and sting rays against my better judgement and... More

My friend and I have been traveling the last 14 months and this was the greatest snorkel trip we went on. David and Tyrell didn't rush us and we had time to explore. No racing to keep up with the guide. They cater to small groups with personal service. I will be using them for all tours and highly recommend... More

Since the first talk with these guys I felt very confident. I told Mike that I can't swim very well and he started to talk to me catching all my interest and giving me confidence. The next day we went with Danny and Sean and they both are amazing guys, they really know what they are doing. I loved this... More

This place was right next door to our hotel. They have great prices and are very knowledgeable on the best places to snorkel. We went with them on two excursions and loved every minute. Danny was our guide and he was in the water with us on both excursions. Will definitely use them again next time we're in San Pedro.

We were told they would provide us with "reef fishing, snorkeling and give us rum punch and fruit". We got fishing and nothing else. Also one of the guides was using the 4th pole which was for us. They cleaned the fish and kept 5 of the them which not acceptable. Do NOT use this outfit. We even wrote the... More

David is both personable and professions; we were relaxed and confident during our tour. His genuine love and respect for this environment is contagious; we were amazed at the beauty of the world we saw, and left wanting to go again! We did another trip with friends who had already booked with a bigger company, and Magicals' trip was so... More
