Management & Staff

Local team, global experience

Ambergris Divers is locally owned and managed by husband and wife team, Roberto and Karen Canul, building this dive shop over the past decade and a half into one of the leading scuba centers in Ambergris Caye, Belize.  Part of this success is credited to their selected staff, with the highest training standards and the strongest passion for not only diving, but also for sharing the underwater Belizean wonders with people from all walks of life.  For the team at Ambergris Divers, it’s not just a job.  It’s an island lifestyle… and we’re family.

Roberto Canul, Head Instructor, Operations and Co-Management

A PADI instructor since 1998, Roberto originally grew up on the shores of Corozal Town in northern Belize.  After moving to the island of Ambergris Caye, his career started at sea a couple decades ago, and also enjoying some time in hospitality management.  In the hospitality and tourism sector, he embraced the value of personalized customer service, translating into Ambergris Divers’ everyday culture, as he directs and oversees all the instruction and tour operations Ambergris Divers offers.

“We make everyone who dives with us fall in love with Belize under the sea, just as I did growing up…”

Karen Waight Canul, Marketing and Management

A local island girl growing up across the street from where Ambergris Divers is located today, Karen has diving in her blood – literally.  Her father being one of the first instructors in all of Belize, having had to travel to Jamaica to acquire his dive certification and teaching status back in 1968.  As a girl, Karen would take the leftover air from divers returning from trips and dive under the very pier where Ambergris Divers operates currently.  Naturally, one of her first jobs was at a dive center.

Today Karen’s behind the scenes work overseeing its locations, the main hub in the center of San Pedro Town, a booking desk at the pier at Caribbean Villas, and a sub-shop at the Sunbreeze Hotel and Sunbreeze Suites; catering to a door to door service which translates into your unique dive vacation with Ambergris Divers.
