We used Splash Dive Center in November 2014. The staff there is fantastic. Everyone is friendly and worked to make sure we had a fun/safe time. Marco was our dive master. He did an outstanding job explaining what we were doing, where we were going, and pointing out fish underwater. The boat was very clean and well equipped. I can't... More

We worked with the Splash Dive shop after were were unsuccessful in planning dives from our resort in Hopkins. Splash seems to have boats that go out daily, unlike those in Hopkins (at least in the off season). Crew was experienced and very helpful, and there was a good ratio of master divers to patrons. The day also included a... More

This is a well run, clean, professional and safe operation. There were four divers scheduled for our trip but two canceled and my dive buddy became ill so I went diving and it was just me, the captain, the dive master and our chef. Most dive shops wouldn't have taken out just one diver on a dive given the number... More

We were supposed to go to the Blue Hole but because it is "dead" season in Belize and they needed at least 6 people for the trip to make it financially feasible (3 hours each way), we couldn't. Instead we did Silk Cay. The dive master, captain and "chef" were all absolutely professional, safe and fun.

We spent four days diving with Splash and had an excellent time. The food and service are amazing, the boat is great, and the diving top notch. We also completed our advanced and Nitrox ratings with Nedia - this was an absolute highlight. She is one of the best instructors I've had anywhere for anything. Thanks Splash, and PS go... More

Went out to Silk Caye today with Splash - the crew was fantastic, friendly, professional and the trip had a bonus snorkelling stop at the end. Which was spectacular because we were swimming with countless stingrays, nurse sharks and even a sea turtle!! Then on the way back we got to see dolphins! They stopped the boat and we just... More

We spent two days in Belize with Splash. One day at Laughing Bird Caye and one day at the Silk Cayes. Both trips exceeded out expectations. The customer service was 5⭐️'S!!! And Marco (our guide) was the best. We will share our wonderful experience with everyone from the States. Great job Splash!!!!

I have previously dived with Splash Dive Center in Placencia, Belize many times and have had many wonderful moments, but this time around it was truly a great experience even from the moment of leaving the dock. A new much larger and spacier dive boat took us promptly to our destination, and even though the sea was a bit choppy,... More
