We needed a bigger boat!

While the crew was effective and knowledgeable, the boat we went on a two hour ride on to the blue hole was not covered and was too small to take the waves. There was no Bimini... read more

I normally try to keep my reviews brief, but thought it was important to write a thorough review in this case. We went on a dive on 18/09/11 to The Blue Hole with Big Fish. Firstly, let me say it is amazing and definitely worth the effort. After reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor we were quite reluctant, but Big... More

Dive trip to Lighthouse Reef Atoll and the Blue Hole costs $180 US, and requires at least 8 divers, which is understandable given it's distance. I signed up for a dive trip to the Blue Hole with Big Fish because they were the only shop that had some other divers listed and could possibly do a trip before I left... More

The big boat, all of the equipment and the crew were working well and very professional, when I dove with them in 2009 and 2010. The other reviewers poor review must be largely because the smaller boat was taken and I am surprised to here of the bad staff review. Perhaps the big boat couldn't be taken that trip, also... More

We are traveling C.A. and only added Belize to the list for one reason - to dive the Blue Hole.   We basically had only 2 options as other Caye Caulker diver operators were not offering the Blue Hole (presumably as it is not profitable due to the 2 hr boat ride). I had read Trip Advisor's review of Frenchies... More

While the crew was effective and knowledgeable, the boat we went on a two hour ride on to the blue hole was not covered and was too small to take the waves. There was no Bimini top or cover at all and most of the divers ended up with severe sunburns. What we did not understand was why we didn't... More

The Big FIsh divers were just great! I spent 9 days there and dived 14 times! The Dive Master's, Elias, Omar, Cass, George, Arnando and TIko were so much fun, professional and really made the whole trip worthwhile. I even dived the Blue Hole twice I loved it so much! I highly recommend diving with Big Fish to anyone!

Israel was our instructor at Big Fish Dive, and he did an amazing job teaching me and 3 teens how to dive. He was very thorough and made sure we understood the importance of following the safety precautions. We all got certified and then we went out to the Blue Hole. In all dives we did with Israel and Big... More
