I've been going to Placencia for years, and I always dive with Splash. Ralph and Patty run a top-notch operation with well-maintained boats, excellent rental gear and expert guides who make customer service their top priority. This year I dived with them off and on for a total of three weeks in late June/July and saw a ton of turtles,... More

My girlfriend and I had the chance to dive with Splash, and it was great! I have been on a few dives before, and my girlfriend has just gone through the certification course in Austin...in a murky, 5 ft. visibility lake no less, so her feelings on scuba weren't so hot. The trip to the Silk Cayes with Splash turned... More

These people really want you to have a great experience. They will go as far as needed to find the best spots. Not too big a crowd and the dive masters are great! Go with Norman if you get a chance. He's kind of quiet but very interesting and very knowledgeable about the whole area. And after the dive go... More

Great briefings and information from the crew. Service was great, from morning coffee to the boat dives to the surface intervals and evening snacks upon the evening return. Patty, who runs the shop, is Honduran and knowledgeable about not only Belize but the greater Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. She was great. My only gripes are that the divemasters themselves were only...

Andrea was our awesome snorkeling guide. She was patient and competent with our three children and made their first sea snorkeling experience a happy and very memorable one. Our three year old had no qualms at swimming with nurse sharks. Thanks Andrea!

We went on a trip to Glover's reef atoll. The dive crew was incredibly fun and friendly. The boat was very nice, roomy, with two levels and well-organized equipment. Patrick, our dive-master, was the most chipper person and was so helpful. He pointed out tons of sea life and clearly has a passion for what he does. It was only... More

Thank you so much to Brian, Oralee, and James for taking my husband and me on an amazing set of dives off Silk Caye. You guys made me feel so safe and helped me get over some deep water fears. The prices at Splash were fair, and all the equipment was in great condition. The pre-dive cookies and coffee were... More

We intended to dive with Splash for 4 days but only got to dive for two of those days due to it being extremely windy/choppy. One of the days they cancelled another diver operator went out and I do really appreciate Splash choosing to lose out on money instead of having guests get beat up/injured due to bad conditions.

When booking our trip we wanted to have everything arranged in advance and Splash did that for us. They arranged our dive trips and land activities, even provided transportation to and from our room. The staff was friendly and professional. After three days of diving the big stand out for me was James the dive master. He is very attentive... More
