I am a none certified diver, was given a very good course both on land and in the water. The staff were very professional and I was able to dive twice about 45 minutes each dive. I would highly recommend Black Durgon Jeff and Toni

We made it out to the Blue Hole and did two reef dives, which were great but on the way to the Blue Hole one of the motors broke down and that's where the trouble began. Reason it broke down: we hit something. We were told that we hit a big fish, but I suspect that we hit a big... More

Have been on Caye Caulker for 3 days and I wanted to do the Blue Hole. After asking informations to all the dive shop around the island, I finally decided to go with Black Durgon Diver.

Simeon organized a beautiful and safe dive for us at the divespots 'Esmeralda' and 'Tackle box'. With in between a 1-hour surface interval at San Pedro. In both dives we saw a lot of nursesharks up close, as well as some turtles and a green moray eel. Simeon took some nice GoPro photos during the dive which we could download... More

+ Good gear, good briefing. Relatively small group (6 people). - DM is grabbing, throwing, pushing nurse sharks around. Totally lacks respect of marine life. Not recommended.

Enjoyed the dives. No issues on my end. Did Esmerelda and Tackle Box. Enjoyed Sim and his first mate, both really personable and friendly. As a DM I did not require the attention and supervision some may require.

My cousin and I wanted to try scuba, and Belize has some beautiful reefs. My cousin happened to stop into the Black Durgon dive shop and met Cory, the owner. We instantly liked her and learned that she and her husband Simeon run the shop together. Being newbies, they made us feel super comfortable and let us go at our... More

After doing my homework on dive shops in Caye Caulker, I decided on Black Durgon. The other shops were not very cordial in their email responses and didn't seem to care if you dove with them or not. Simeon & Cori do very personal dive trips, not cattle boat dives. They came by our place and picked up our gear,... More
