We coordinated our entire trip through Seahorse. Brian at Seahorse was great. He was very responsive and had every thing set up for us from the moment we landed in Belize City. Logistically everything went very well and we were very happy with our accommodations at Chabil Del Mar. If you need to rent (Seahorse didn't charge us for equipment)... More

After looking at other reviews I thought that I would be getting a great day of diving with sea horse - it was certainly not as I was expecting or hoping. While waiting to get into the water both of us were at the end of the boat waiting for them to stop the boat - the fumes that filled... More

We spent one day with 2 dives to try to see Whales sharks. Unfortunately we haven't seen any, but you cannot order them, that's nature! We went out with a big, stinky boat, that was polluting the air so much, that it was almost impossible to find a corner to breath some fresh air. I have never been sick in... More

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
