I just want to say thank you Fagan for being patient for a non-swimmer like me on our snorkeling trip to Silk Caye. You are so passionate with what you do , make sure you had pointed out all the different fishes and corals . You always reminded me safety first so you were beside me during the trip. Janine... More

Splash and Arthur did a great job of reassuring my recently certified boyfriend, yet keeping my interest level with my advanced certifications during our two dives with them. We appreciated the diverse marine life that we saw under water and enjoyed our lunch on the small island between dives. The highlight of our dives was seeing a pod of 50+... More

Our hotel arranged for Splash Dive Shop to take my wife and I on a snorkeling excursion. From the moment they picked us up until they dropped us off we had a great time. Tony, our guide, was great and very knowledgeable about the fish. Our scuba certification wasn't done in time for this trip unfortunately, but when we return... More

First of all, let me say that if you are an experienced diver, then the trip we went on with Splash Dive (to Silk Caye) would probably not be for you. The reason for this is that it was over an hour to get to the dive site, and the 2 dive sites we went on were mediocre. This is... More

Did a three tank dive to Glovers reef with Splash. There were 12 divers on the trip and they split us up into 4 groups each with a dive master. The staff were knowledgeable and organized. The dive briefings were ok, not as much details as I've seen with some smaller groups. My equipment all worked fine. I was a... More

Went out of their way to make it possible for my wife to scuba. Very patient in teaching, always felt safe as a novice diver. Ask for Moses if you can; he is better than great.

We took two trips from their dock in Placencia. They picked us up from the Maya Beach as part of the fee. The first trip was to Silk Caye and the other was to Laughing Bird Caye. Both were great for different reasons - both sites were beautiful. On both trips they cooked a yummy chicken bbq meal for lunch.... More

Despite some adverse weather conditions, we had a great snorkeling trip to Laughing Bird Caye. Fagan was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and patient. And lunch was great!

We were impressed by the premises at first view and then the tour began with well kept boats and excited courteous guides and crew. What we saw in the water was breathtaking and the fact they took the time to teach my 8 year old how to snorkel so he could join in really touched me. I can't forget the... More
