Fantastic tour guides! We all enjoyed our snorkeling trips. If you plan a trip you must use Lil Alfonse Snorkeling, Alfonse and Adolfo take good care of you.

My husband and I went on a tour today with Alphonse and it was amazing. He knew SO much about the different kinds of fish and coral. He pointed out things we would have missed and made sure to find us a sea turtle. We called last minute and he took the tour out just for us even though he... More

What more can be said about Alphonse that hasn't already been said? He is amazing! This snorkel trip was the highlight of our 8 day vacation to Belize (4 days in San Ignacio and 4 days in San Pedro). I was traveling with my 2 boys (13, 10), mother and 8 year old nephew. Alphonse picked us up on the... More

Wish I could rate this tour company 10 stars! Alphonso was an awesome tour guide, very knowledgeable and provided quality snorkeling. The trip advisor reviews helped me decide with this tour. Alphonso was very pleasant and informative, no stress, no drama, respectful of all the sea creatures and preserving their existence. There was NO roughness or harm done to the... More

Excellent tour guide - he was very informative about local sea life and was very entertaining as a guide. We felt safe at all times even when swimming with the sharks!! Would recommend Lil Alphonse snorkeling to friends and family! Hope you can get a chance to take one of his tours.

We used Lil Alphonse for a trip to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. They did a great job. Their love for the sea animals is obvious. He took time to explain everything we saw. They were especially good with the children on our tour.At Shark Ray Alley, it was sort of obvious that our tour was better than others,... More

Fantastic way to experience Hol Chan. I've snorkeled (badly) all over the world, in Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, in Sri Lanka, in Europe, in Africa, and this was the best by far, mainly because of the instruction provided beforehand. I thought I knew how to snorkel - I definitely didn't. And this completely changed the snorkeling experience for... More

I would first like to say that Alphonse and the guides that take people to Hol Chan have been doing so for years. Because the guides feed the marine life on a regular basis, the animals act more like pets. The guides, because of this close relationship, are able to touch and hold the sharks and sting rays. These are... More

I was in Belize in March 2015 and used Lil Alphonse for our snorkeling tour to shark ray alley and Hol chan. We took a boat early in the morning, which was great because there were not a lot of other people in the water. The sea life was so beautiful and alive. I've snorkels in other locations and this...
