I used the recently opened office in Hopkins and was really pleased. The girl working there was friendly and catered to all needs. I was then taken out to meet the main boat that sailed from placencia to conduct my diving. The staff on board where great guys and made sure we got the most from our trip. The food... More

Had 2 diving experiences prior. Not PADI certified, but enjoy diving. This location is PADI certified, I did the introduction package with them. But all the divers went on the same trip. 2 dives and lunch for about 140 USD! Took a boat out to an island, for those who weren't diving they could hang out on the island and... More

I dove 2 days with Splash. Owner- Patricia is very professional & kind. Splash leaves early (compared to the other dive shops), so they're usually first in the water & first back to Placencia. That was great for me. Day 1 was 2 tanks at Silk Caye. My wife came along as a snorkeler & stayed at the Caye while... More

Splash Dive Shop was a great place to dive with. We did 6 dives with them and everyone was great. There are other choices but once you see their operation it will be hard not to give them a try. The equipment is first class the scheduling is easy and accommodating. We have several hundred dives in our logbook and... More

This was my first dive "trip", and I couldn't be more satisfied with Splash Dive Shop. While I have no experience with other dive shops to compare with, I can't think of anything that was missing or inadequate. The whole feel of the operation was quite professional, yet very warm and friendly. And although I brought my own gear (even... More

Spent three weeks scuba diving with Splash. Dives included a night dive, lionfish hunt, and several reef and wall dives. Splash is a highly professional operation. They are extremely safety conscious and take very good care of their customers. They would also take small groups of divers and not require full boats. Each dive was accompanied by multiple guides.

Splash was a pleasant surprise on our trip to Placencia. They picked us up from our rental cottage and brought us back at the end of the day. That alone is service worth 5 stars, but it didn't stop there. The dive shop and equipment were new and well maintained, most modern building in Placencia. the crew was fabulous and... More
