Alfonse sure knows the waters and most importantly respects the ocean and its inhabitants! He guides you every step of the way from the correct way to don a mask to pointing out and detailing the type of fish we saw. I was glad to pay for his service. If anything, we were a little disappointed that we returned at... More

My husband and I are here in Belize celebrating our 20th anniversary. Over those years we have visited more than 10 carribean countries and have snorkeled in each one. We have never before experienced such an amazing tour. Our guides reverence and love for the sea life was apparent in all he did. His knowledge of the fish was outstanding!... More

My friend and I decided that we would book with alfonse without much thought and before we had reached San Pedro. Although he may be $5USD more than some of the advertised tours on the island, you can be sure he is worth the money and more. While others snorkelled in silence he pointed out everything and his enthusiasm really... More

Alphonse was the friendliest and most knowledgeable guide you could ask for. He truly enjoyed God's beauty as much as we did. He was patient and instructed us well. He went into the water with us and pointed out many creatures by name. You could tell he respected nature and felt blessed by his surroundings. Our night snorkel with him... More

My sister and I had an amazing experience snorkeling with Alphonse. If you're in San Pedro definitely schedule a trip with him. If you've never snorkeled before he is great at explaining everything and making you comfortable in the water in no time. If you're experienced he'll help you get the most out of your trip by pointing out all... More

We booked a trip with Lil Alphonse through email. He was prompt in getting back with me and securing a spot. He told me his wife would meet us at the airport. When we arrived to the airport she was there waiting. Lil Alphonse took me and my wife to the Hol Chan reserve. Lil Alphonse took the time to... More

Had a wonderful trip with Alphonse. He took the right amount of time for basic instruction, which was helpful for my daughter and niece, who were both beginners. However, he was also quick to ensure that we spent the majority of our time in the water. Had an amazing knowledge of the wildlife and reef ecosystem and was excellent about... More

We booked two snorkling trips to Hol Chan. This was the best by far. We saw a great variety of fish, sea turtles, nurse sharks, barracuda, sting rays, etc. and were able to interact with the sting rays and sharks. The kids had a great time. Great care was given to our experience, even making sure our goggles were fitted... More

Lil Alphonse was amazing! Everything was explained. He was incredibly patient with our kids - ages 7 and 10. He spent a lot of time with us. Nothing was hurried. We saw other tour boats come and go while we were still out there with Alphonse showing us all kinds of things we would have otherwise missed. Highly recommend this... More
