Our guide Sonny did an excellent job of getting us out to the Caye and back, while keeping the boat ride as smooth as possible. The guiding was great and it was obvious that he has great respect for the reef.

I was blown away by how accommodating and willing to go the extra mile this company is. The couple who run the business are extremely nice. Not only did they set up tours for us -- they gave us a ride to the zip lining place 30 minutes away, they let us keep our bags in their office for a... More

We spent 2 months in Placencia and took a number of tours with Ocean Motion, every tour was professional run and met all expectations, Laverne, Bernard and the boys were wonderful and very accommodating. We will return next January and plan a number of tours with Ocean Motion.

My college professor and our class went snorkeling to Laughing Bird Caye and we had an awesome time. They made me feel safe on the boat going out to sea and they provided a cooler of water and fresh pineapple. A few of our masks were not in the best condition and kept filling with water. We tried to adjust... More

My husband booked a 1/2 day fishing trip with Bernard Sr. I went along for the ride and it was the best time of our vacation here. Bernard made sure my husband caught fish and I saw ocean life. Truly a wonderful time.

Darrell, the founder of this tour was our guide, and he was great - very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the rainforest. He knew just where to go to find the Howler Monkeys; we were very pleased with his easy-going style of commentary. Great tour- highly recommended.

Even though there were only two of us, they arranged a trip for us to Laughing Bird Caye. We saw more kinds of beautiful fish than we could easily count. "Mo"(Marie) and Sonny (local people who know the cayes) were great at pointing out things and explaining interesting facts about them. (Ocean Motion please keep "Mo" on staff, she's great!)... More

I went on two tours with Ocean Motion - the Monkey River Tour and Laughing Bird Caye. Bernard (owner) was my guide both days. He's got a GREAT eye for finding manatees on the Monkey River Tour. The Laughing Bird Caye trip was magnificent - Bernard cooked an incredible beach bbq while his son took us snorkeling through perfect waters... More
