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. Once we arrived the snorkeling was amazing, and our guide (Marcio) did an amazing job pointing out various creatures hiding in the reef.... More

We had a excellent time on all of our dives with Splash Dive Shop. Everyone there was very helpful and they worked with us to be sure we got all the diving in we wanted as well as seeing the whale sharks.

My wife and I went on a snorkel trip today to Laughing Bird Caye. I snorkeled while she was a beachcomber. We had an awesome time. The food was good, the staff was wonderful, and the scenery spectacular. A must do trip while in Placentia. Splash made a great trip for us!

My husband and I did our certification dives last May. We had a great time, but I was very intimidated by the rough water when we dove. Waves were 7' high and it was a choppy 1 hour ride before we could begin. Nedia was our instructor and she managed our trepidation very well. We had a great experience for... More

We prebooked with Splash both reef and Whale Shark dives. On the whole, all was ok, but no more. Some issues as follows : First we found the land based staff's attitude somewhat surly at times, especially on check in and miscellaneous enquiries during our stay, having to come forward and ask for assistance, sometimes received as if a minor...

My wife and I work in the dive industry, so when it comes to choosing a dive shop while we are on vacation we are very particular. We normally do our research beforehand, but never actually book trips with shops until we are at our destination and have felt everything out. After finding Spash's remote office at one of the...

Let me start with saying that the majority of the dive staff is great. They are well trained and conscientious of the client's needs. Unfortunately, Patty, the woman who runs the shop has little to no interest in good customer service. Any attempts to book online with this shop are futile. Several months before my trip, I contacted Splash about... More
