Worst dive I've ever had. Eight to ten foot seas, saw nothing. Dive master rude and unsafe. Asked for more weight but was dragged down by the guide. Terrible day!! Nearly everyone on board got sick

I would recommend this dive shop but for advanced open water certified people only!! Before signing up make sure you know what you already doing because the main ones, blue hole and whale shark diving is for more experienced divers. They also seem to have a few problems with getting the right size equipment on the boat at times and... More

We checked in for our scheduled whale shark dive and it was quit disorganized. Our boat captain did a great job making our 1.5 hour journey as smooth as possible. Kurt our dm was arrogant and scolding about any mistakes he thought divers were making even to a visiting instructor and rescue diver. So much so that a couple of... More

PROS- Offer the most hyped dives in Belize: The Blue Hole; and chances to dive with Whale Sharks. Friendly receptionist (Brian) and ship Capitan (Bash). Helpful Capitan assistant (Max) Made special stop at Half Moon Caye to use their restrooms, and pee stops upon passenger's requests. SeaHorse provided free transportation from the hotel we were staying at. CONS - Ship... More

Loved snorkeling on Silk Caye and Laughing Bird Caye with the guides from Sea Horse Dive Shop! The guides were friendly, welcoming, patient, and knowledgeable. The boat and equipment were great too!

Bottom line, we think it was too rough to go out that day but they did. The swells 6-8 feet according to the rangers. The wind about 20 mph according to all the weather we saw. You could not see the 3 level trawler below the swells next to us when it went between swells. All the snorkelers got sick.... More

We're experienced divers and this was the worst dive shop we've used, but there aren't a lot of options in Placencia. We did a whale shark dive and did see one, but the Divemasters were unprofessional. They treated us like amateur divers, one of them literally grabbing my BCD at one point and taking air out of it because he... More

I have booked trips with multiple dive shops and this is one of the best experiences I have had. They are a small dive shop which allows them to give you personal service. We had dives and snorkels in our group and both groups had a great experience. They took the time to point fish out and coral. I would... More

Prior to the dive email communication was great, however from there it got worse. Kirk the dive instructor was rude and had so much attitude. Considering that we were the least experienced and least qualified divers, you would think that he would keep an extra eye out for us, but no. Myself and my partner were the only ones with... More

Whaleshark dive with Seahorse on May 18th. Most memorable dive of my life. Saw four whalesharks up close and personal. Great videos and pics. Only had enough time for one dive day here, and it was a one shot deal for me to see the whalesharks. Very professional outfit with great boats and gear. They even changed the dive time... More
