I was so grateful that Brian was able to get me on a boat at the last minute! The boat was large and very comfortable. The dive master did a great Job briefing us on the first dive and off we went. Did not see much on the first dive, but on the second dive we got our money's worth!!!... More

We went to Placencia to dive with Whale Sharks, didn't see any but the crew at Seahorse made it a great dive trip anyway. My girlfriend and I did a couple dives with DM Max and Capt Shaun, it was a nice day of diving with a fantastic lunch during our deco time on a beautiful little sandy atoll. Then... More

We traveled to Placencia for only one reason, to see the whale sharks. We decided for sea horse diving, but already the communication by email was quite difficult. After sending emails, and giving Brian a reminding call twice, and couple of days later, we finally got a confirmation that we are booked on the trip. We got no information where... More

Brian Jr. is awesome and the boat crews were great too! dive masters were a mix bag....safety was not priority...communication was not effective...at the end we had a good time but they have room for improvement

My husband and I had wonderful experience with Brian in the office and on the boat (it was not too packed) and the diving itself was great, but unfortunately the divemasters were so rude/ambivalent it really tainted our whole experience. For being so expensive, I expect the divemasters to answer basic questions about safety or underwater life, but our divemaster... More

We booked in advance with Seahorse, prior to our planned Belize trip to dive with whale sharks. At first Brian was good about responding by email but there were two different times I tried to contact him via repeated emails and he never responded so I had to call. A bit frustrating since it was international but I was able... More

Joined Seahorse for a trip to Silk Cayes. The boat was fast and the trip (with dolphins) good. The dive guide was good at spotting wildlife including a turtle and did his bit for conservation by catching invasive lionfish. The lunch on the Island was good (although other companies' looked even tastier) and the snorkel at the end with sharks,... More

Having my own tour company, I can be very critical of others, and I found Seahorse to be nothing but professional! The gear is all in very good condition, the boat we went out on was very well maintained, and the guides were exactly what you want - they are there to help you have a great experience. The Silk...

I've been diving for 30 years but have not dove frequently of late, and my wife snorkels only. The Seahorse team did a terrific job of creating a trip that matched both our needs. We were paired up with two other couples that dove. We went out to Silk Caye. I did a refresher dive 1:1 with a dive instructor... More

We went to Silk Cayes. Devin was our snorkel guide and he was very knowledgeable and helpful to us, pointing out lots of species of fish and sea life. Lunch on the little island was delicious- lion fish, coleslaw, rice and beans and watermelon. We were lucky enough to see nurse sharks, a spotted ray and a sea turtle. Even... More
