My husband and I did the padi certification course with seahorse and we had a pretty good time.The crew was fun and seemed experienced although the facility is not kept up with and they need new TVs for watching the movie portion! At the end of the course, none of us had left a tip for the instructor because frankly... 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

I've dived with Splash Dive Center three times now for a total of seven weeks, the last time for two weeks in August. Splash continues to impress. Last time I just missed the arrival of their newest dive boat, the Princess Taia, so I was eager to give it a go. The PT is a 46-foot Newton designed specifically for... More
