To make your trip complete, make sure you snorkel with Lil Alfonse. His passion for the ocean is stunning. I have been on his tour several times where he has spent extra time with guests,[young, old and new snorkelers] that were scared and he has a special way of talking and reassuring them. Incredible!!! If you scuba dive and think... More

I encourage you to read all the other reviews and they're all true. I had a wonderful time and would do it again with Alphonse without hesitation. He is an amazing ambassador for Belize and snorkelling.

All together we went on 3 separate snorkel trips with Alphonse and 2 were accompanied by Adolpho. We had a blast everyday! Alphonse makes the experience from the moment he picks you up at your dock till he drops you off a fun, lively, and informational experience. He was the most proud person we met on the entire island, just... More

My husband & I had a fabulous snorkeling trip with Alphonse & Adolph - they were both just great! Alphonse was knowledgable and entertaining as well as helpful and patient and we saw and learned so much; not only about the fish & coral but the ecosystem too. We could tell that he has such passion for the creatures of... More

Went with a group of 9, including 4 over 50, 4 30-somethings, and 1 9 year old, and combined with another group of 10 on the boat. Alfonse was wonderfully welcoming to each of us, very friendly, constantly making sure we were ok, having fun, and listening and understanding all of his instruction. From the moment he picked us up,... More

It was cloudy and the water was murky but Alphonse made sure we got to see everything!!! I am a slow swimmer and needed a flotation device. He made sure to wave and pull me over everytime he saw a fish!! He is very informational! Definitely recommend his tour!

We had a great snorkel trip with lil Alfonse. They are very knowledgeable about the reef, it's animals, and how to get the most out of the snorkel equipment. Awesome to see so many sharks and rays up close, and the reef is stunning. Picked us up from hotel dock, and took us back. We had a great time, and... More

I was delighted with my snorkeling experience! I've been saved from drowning as a child and had fears to work on. Alphonse was incredibly informative and thorough in preparing us for the experience. He was most reassuring and acted the same in the water, very attentive. His respect for the creatures and his extensive knowledge of the various species of... More

Knowledgeable and friendly would recommend him for beginners or the more experienced snorkeler. Never have I had someone that took extra time and care of my personal mask, cleaning it so it wouldn't fog up, that lesson will follow me on to the next adventure. Being picked up and dropped off at the hotel was a plus. If I make... More
