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

I have been diving around the world, but Splash is the best and most professional I have ever seen. My GF and I stayed in Hopkins (about an hour north) for our vacation, but the dive shops around there were closed or could not generate enough interest to make a trip worthwhile. Our hotel contacted Patricia at Splash and set... More

I could just cut & paste the same review from year to year... a children's charity called Bookbag Santa (www.bookbagsanta.com) brings a group of 20- 50 people and up to 3 tons of school supplies to Belize every summer, and Placencia is always our base. Splash is not only the best dive/tour operation in Belize, they are the only one... More

These guys are fantabulous in all ways!!!! Thanks to Patty, Rodrigo, Nedia, "Mattie", "Hercules", "Nathan", Doyle, Bertie, "Rookie Tomas", Freddi, Captain Edward etc. The refresher was perfect and set me up for a great week of diving in the beautiful blue waters of Belize. Love the eco-tourism aspect and the "lion-hunt" was so fascinating and important - even if I... More

I just returned from spending the majority of August in Belize and must say Splash Dive Center made it an experience of a lifetime! Nicest dive center in perhaps the whole country! Patty and Ralph run a tight operation and are extremely accommodating.The facilities, vessels, and equipment are all high quality. The staff are knowledgable and friendly with a great... More
