Excellent trip, highly recommended. Nick, our guide, did a great job, pointing out animals that we surely would have missed otherwise. Clear waters, very healthy coral ecosystem. My 13 year old daughter also highly recommends the tour for other kids. Her favorite animals this trip are nurse and lemon sharks, two kinds of sea turtles, spotted eel, barracudas, squids, huge...

My family of 20 really wanted to snorkel the Great Blue Hole and looked all through Hopkins for an adventure desk that could accommodate such a large group in only two days notice. Splash was definitely worth the money for the experience the group had as we found that the guides were mostly friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, my personal experience... More

It's 8am and we're on a boat for an hour and a half heading to the reef- but not just any reef- the second largest reef system in the world. Almost 'there' we see a private island, just enough beach to accommodate about 20 or so people, with a few tables,a grill, and a restroom. It's our private docking station.... More

Everything about this shop was excellent. Boats, equipment, and, especially, the dive masters. We made several dives and enjoyed the experience. We wouldn't change a thing.

Before we ever left for Belize we had signed up to dive Glover's Atoll with another dive shop. The night before they cancelled on us -- but Angel from Splash (located onsite at Almond Beach Resort) had been in communication with the other dive shop and had already made plans to accommodate our dive. They were able to do this... More

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
