I've been diving around the world for over 30 years and I can unequivocally state that Seahorse Dive Shop offers the best dive experiences I've had anywhere. Their equipment, knowledge of the reefs, and professional staff make this the best dive shop in Placencia. In addition, I've been bringing students here to dive and this is their first dive experience.... More

This was a solid dive experience with a pro shop. Low season so my partner and I were the only divers on the boat. DM Nick was solid and dependable and the boat captain did a great job of managing swell. If you're an experienced diver and boat person, you'll enjoy this. If, like the snorkelers on our boat, you...

We went out to the Silk Cayes to snorkel with this dive shop. Our snorkel guide was very informative and taught us about the Cayes before going into the water. During the first snorkel trip (about one hour), we circled the island as a group with the guide leading and teaching us about the various fish and coral we saw.... More

We had a fantastic experience with Seahorse Dive Shop! I contacted them during the planning stages of our trip to maximize our chances of seeing a Whale Shark and Brian advised me on the best time to come. Brian, the owner, was very professional and accommodating – not knowing what the season would be like, he penciled us in, 3... More

My husband and I planned our entire trip to Belize around getting to snorkel with whale sharks, so this snorkel trip came with high expectations. The first time we got in the water with the divers we saw nothing. However, our captains got some intel from a fisherman and broke from the group to go check out another spot. Before... More

I really didn't feel comfortable at all. I had just received my open water dive certificate a week earlier on Ambergris Caye, and let the shop know this and they reassured me I was in good hands. After a long boat ride out to the first dive site, I felt very rushed to get off the boat. As a single... More

This day trip was amazing. We'd do it again in a heartbeat! We booked this snorkeling tour through our hotel and transport was arranged and included in the price. A meal and water was also included in the price. We were expecting ham sandwiches or something, which would have been adequate. Unknown to us, Nick, the dive master, also runs... More

SCUBA diving with Seahorse Dive Shop was overall a great experience. The equipment is new and in great condition. The dive masters are so friendly and knowledgeable. For a group of beginner divers, they were super helpful.

Truly exceptional service, first rate in all respects! I am highly satisfied with the quality of the equipment and the expertise of the captain and dive masters on the trip. Everyone was of great help and went beyond any expectations I had prior to heading out with them. They provided the friendliest of service on deck and went out of... More
