On our last whale shark dive (didn't see any that day) the dive boat we are on didn't even have a ladder to get out of the water... More

We were here at the end of March 2014, we did all our tours and dives through them. Very professional, and such nice people, could not have been happier.

I have taken several tours with Splash now and they just keep getting better and better. The tour guides are well trained, friendly and go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a good time. I am looking forward to more great times as they expand their offerings.

We had a great day at silk caye! The snorkel guides were awesome (loved marico) and the water/critters were incredible. There was A LOT of confusion at the dive shop in the morning so we left about 45 mins late but otherwise a great experience.

We have been snorkeling all over the Caribbean, and this was by far the best. Even though the waters were rough during our trip the crew tried to minimize the beating of the 1 hour boat ride.
