"Dear Ken. Our time at Turneffe Island Resort (TIR) could not have been better. Thank you for arranging a perfect group trip. It was a wonderful escape from the real world. We learned so much from the knowledgeable, experienced Island Dreams divers we met. The food, the diving, and the staff exceeded our expectations. The property is beautiful and well kept. The staff members were always there to offer assistance. TIR did a great job coordinating transportation (boat and van) and arranging the required testing. Thank you again."

"Once on island it was an incredible, unexpected experience. Room was amazing. Service and food beyond comparison. Little touches like coffee basket being delivered to room each morning. Diving operation was equally impressive. Initial briefing was one of the best I had heard. After two years of no diving, the boat crew was very helpful in getting my gear, and weights, in proper order. I would never, ever have gone to Turneffe Island during these time had it not been for Island Dreams setting up the trip. Thanks, Ken, for hanging in there. Hope to see you next year if not sooner."

"Thanks again for setting up the trip and glad I was able to join in the fun. Turneffe Island Resort was great - very well organized arrival and check in. Food was amazing and the staff went overboard to make sure we were enjoying the food, bar, and resort. Dive crew was as top notch as the other departments. Smaller boats were comfortable and the dive guide did a good job of helping us get the most out of our dives. Departure COVID testing process was smooth. Island Dreams did an excellent job with the booking, payment process, and pre-arrival preparation. Truly appreciate your perseverance through the last 18 months. Will continue to book my dive trips with Ken, Tina, and Island Dreams."

"Hi Ken. We were very impressed with Turneffe Island Resort. We have never seen a better maintained dive resort - not a spot of rust nor board needing paint! Rooms were beautiful mahogany and very spacious. Loved the outdoor shower and screened porch. Operations are well managed and service is 5-star! Staff is well trained, professional and friendly. And thanks again Ken for another wonderful Island Dreams trip! We appreciate the time you spend vetting and organizing such a trip. It was great seeing and diving with you again."

"As always Islands Dreams did an outstanding job of organizing and leading this trip. Ken kept us updated on everything regarding Covid requirements to pickup procedures and suggesting rain jackets. We were a very well informed group of divers. Turneffe Island Resort was fantastic. Very well set up for diving and the rooms were wonderful, spacious with plenty of storage space and each came with a screened in porch. The food was exceptional and they bent over backwards to please all guests. I would go back there in a heartbeat. The diving was really good with lots of critters and fish, sharks and even dolphins came to play. Thank you once again Ken for a fantastic dive adventure. "

"Turneffe Island Resort is one of the best dive resorts I have been to in the most recent years as a diver - maybe the best in the Caribbean. Everything about the resort is first-class, from the accommodations, the food and staff service, as well as the dive service. And, best of all, the diving is as good as it gets in this part of the world. Our boat captain and dive guide were both extremely experienced and made sure we had a great dive, every trip out. We were able to locate and enjoy watching amazing sea life, every dive. As a bonus, our boat captain rounded up several pods of dolphins for us to watch from below! Island Dreams did a great job of making arrangements that left us with virtually nothing to be concerned about. Navigating this world of Covid is difficult, but our travel to and enjoyment of Turneffe Island Resort was seamless. I would go again!"

"Thanks again for a most enjoyabe trip. Terrific resort. The service was friendly and fantastic, and everything the chef made was so good. The grounds were immaculate. The rooms were spacious and attractive,and there was a nice breeze blowing through the screened-in porch. We had a lot of fun with our knowledgeable dive guide and boat captain. The reef does not have the variety you find in the Pacific or Indonesia but the dives were still fun and relaxing."

"Thank you for organizing and leading the tour. We both enjoyed it. Turneffe Island Resort (TIR) has many challenges, being 30 miles offshore and completely off the grid. But they deliver a well organized, quality, full service experience for to their guests. Few mainland based resorts do as well as TIR. The rooms were well large, fully equipped and thoughtfully designed. Every room had a mosquito screen protected outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Morning coffee service was provided to the rooms. The food was plentiful and excellent. The diving boats were substantial, with 200 HP outboards for fast, exciting trips to the dive sites which were all close at hand. The dive shop took care of all our dive gear except for fins. All divers needed to do was step on the boat. All diving was outside the atoll's reefs with varied and abundant fish life. Marco, our divemaster, was excellent at finding critters. The week we were there the winds were up, reducing visibility a bit and making return to the dive boats a bit challenging. But Henry (our boat driver) was great, lifting all of our dive gear out of the water for us, making climbing the ladder much easier."
