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

Friends we were traveling with, more experienced snorkelers, booked an excursion with Lil Alphonse. We had a 10 and 6-year old who never snorkeled and I only did once before. Both Alphonse and Adolpho were very helpful and accommodating. Alphonse is HIGH energy...a great personality. He must go out snorkeling 3x/day every day but whenever he sees something interesting, he... More

It's our favorite snorkel company. Alphonse makes sure you see EVERYTHING he is seeing. We've been all around the world and nobody compares to Alphonse.

He supplied good quality well fitted equipment and took the time to teach us everything we needed to know before he helped us into the water...great for the nubes in... More

Lil Alphonse was an excellent guide and was very knowledgable he made the snorkelling very exciting and showed and named all the fish that we saw. He was also made sure that everyone was set up before just taking off into the water. Highly recommend going out with him if you want to do any snorkelling in this area.

I have been travelling to Belize for 15 years and would not go snorkeling with anyone else. Alphonse has a knowledge of the reef and all marine life second to none. As others have mentioned, he takes all the time it requires to make sure each and every person's equipment has the correct fit and cleaned to perfection. He makes... More
