My wife and I were looking for a dive shop that would cater to both diving and snorkeling and after checking out the options on Caye Caulker we landed on Frenchie's Dive Shop. The crew were experienced, fun and helpful, the DM's were safe and followed proper procedures and limits, the captain was exactly where he was supposed to be at the end of the dives and knew the reefs well. There were nice snacks and drinks in between dives and a little extra rum punch at the end of the day for the rides back. My wife was snorkeling with a few others while the rest of us went on our dives and one of the DM's led the snorkel group and pointed out a lot of cool stuff. Frenchie's is a great shop if you don't want to pay top dollar but still want a full service dive shop to show you the best of the sites without sacrificing dive safety and protocol. Highly recommended!

My wife and I, together with our friend, recently spent several weeks on Caye Caulker, mainly to dive. The dive sitesaround the island are incredibly beautiful, with a rich and diverse set of marine life and lovely reefs. We tried a couple other dive operators, who were very good, but we settled on Frenchies for the majority of our trips, including two to the Blue Hole, an overnight trip to Half Moon, and a night dive.

Frenchies are a really great operation, and we felt very comfortable and relaxed diving with them. The owner is really friendly and helpful. The desk staff, including Snake, were also extremely helpful and friendly. The divemasters we went with - Ed, Armando, Jose, Carlos and Mike - were all extremely professional and knowledgeable. They all provided excellent dive briefings prior to each of the dives, and conducted the dives in a highly organised and engaged way. We took two trips to the Blue Hole, one as part of a large day group, and another as part of a wonderful overnight trip to Half Moon Caye. This overnight trip is highly recommended, you get to do six dives (including the Blue Hole), and spend the night on an absolutely idyllic island, the only other inhabitants being the Rangers, the hermit crabs, the geckos and the redfooted Boobies! Our divemaster Ed caught and cerviched and barbacued some fresh fush for us, and we had a wonderful nIght eating and drinking under the stars beside the ocean. We really enjoyed diving the Blue Hole with Ed during our overnight trip as it was just the three of us and Ed first thing in the morning. We arrived before any other dive boat, and saw lots of large reef sharks during the whole dive, and the whole experience was much more relaxed and slightly less frenetic than when doing it as part of a much larger group of divers. The dives around Half Moon Island are particularly spectacular and highly recommended.

The rental gear at Frenchies was good, the food on the day trips was excellent, and all of their boats are well equiped and reasonably comfortable. I personally would recommend trying to ensure that you get onto their large boat for the trip out to the Blue Hole, as it's a fairly long trip and the larger boat is more comfortable. Highly recommend Frenchies if you are interested in doing some diving around Caye Caulker, wonderful service all round!

As a snorkeler, not a scuba diver, this all day trip out to the Blue Hole was too much. We had full confidence in our excellent captain through some very heavy seas and the stops in calm waters for diving were worthwhile. But as snorkelers we could not take advantage of the spectacular Blue Hole and we would have been better off with the closer and less expensive half day trip around the reef. On the half day trip you are on a sail boat and see wonderful sea life from the several stops throughout the trip. Let the scuba divers enjoy the Blue Hole and you can spend time on a sail boat with some rum punch at the end of a fun relaxing day.

To everyone coming to Caye Caulker and wanting to dive, I'd definitely choose Frenchie's. They really make your diving experience amazing. Definitely recommend to go to the Blue Hole with them, it's worth it!
