Help Replace Dive Boat for Seemore Adventures

Seemore Adventures  is the only locally owned dive shop in Hopkins, Belize since 2010. It is the dive shop where “the crew treats you like family”.

On the night of February 23rd, Seemore Adventures’ dive boat, LADY BOO, was stolen. The boat, a 26’ skiff with center console, two rows of seats, small dive deck, tank racks and seats at the front, had just been completely restored to new condition and put back in the water along with two 1 year old Yamaha 40hp engines, canopy and various equipment.

The replacement value for the LADY BOO, its contents, and a trailer to ensure safe storage in the future is $30,239.

Seemore Adventures is a resilient team and they are working to recover the loss, but any help would make the process much faster and would be immensely appreciated by the owner, his family and the whole crew.

Please check out Seemore Adventures' reviews on trip advisor  and see how their business is an asset to the Hopkins Community.

Below some pictures of Lady Boo before it was completely restored. Unfortunately we do not have better pictures of the restored boat, as it was stolen only a day after it was put back in the water.
