Ever since a friend introduced Doreth to diving while still in college, he has had a real passion for marine life.
Previous employment initially started at the well-known resort Hamanasi, in his village, Hopkins, Stann Creek District. Here Doreth climbed from guide to dive master to dive instructor.
He moved on to Kanatik, then Off The Wall at Long Caye for seven years (where Phil met him in 2011), to being General Manager of Belize Underwater in Hopkins for five years.
Doreth’s older brother John was one of Slickrock’s original guides since the early 1990s and brought him out to Glover’s Reef when he was young. That same passion for marine life and the underwater world is still burning, and we are happy he’s joined the Slickrock family.
Alben is from Dangriga, Stann Creek District. He is a natural at sea, having vast experience as captain, fisherman, tour guide, and dive instructor.
Although Alben has been a captain since 2004, he started driving boats at the age of seven. His dad Junior (long-term friend of Slickrock) introduced him to the world of boating. Since then, he’s been to neighboring countries several times as a captain, in particular Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
In addition to being a boat captain, Alben has been a tour guide since 2014. His guiding experience has included working with Pelican Beach Resort, Thatch Caye, Blue Marlin Lodge, Reef’s End, as well as Isla Marisol Resort out at Glover’s Reef.
A friendly, humble persona, matched with passion for the marine life, he’s a great addition to the Slickrock team.
