Amazing service - worked around my birthday schedule, to send me off on one of the best birthdays of my life. Fantastically fun captain - Bibi… and a wonderful, proud local guide... singing bouncing in the water and enjoying the see… it's a team not to miss. Small, but skilled - you'll avoid the large crowd and get down to... More

Shemar was a great tour guide. We had some trouble at the ruins, the river was too high to drive over. But Shemar too, it all in stride and got us to the next adventure of the day. Cave tubing was fabulous, we were late and the last tour of the day. Our guide, Douglas was very informative and helpful... More

We booked two tours at this company. Nice people that do as they say. They do trust their customers. We could take out the gear and pay later. The tours are about the same as others. People (captains) are trustworthy guys and the gear (snorkeling set and boats) look well maintained.

We toured with Bernard 10 years ago and had such a good time that we booked him for fishing on our return trip. This is a family-run operation and they do an excellent job. Bernard and his son took us fishing a couple of days. Although it was windy and the fish weren't biting, they tried different options and locations,... More

This was the highlight of our trip. Everyone at Ocean Motion was relaxed and confident and the whole experience was perfect. We did the full day snorkel trip. Silk Caye was beautiful, lunch was superb, the sharks were a little scary!!!

Wanted to create our own day trip and the owner was very accommodating for me and my friend. Great conversation with our guides, one was her son, Shamir. Manuel had great knowledge of the ruins and when at Blue Creek, we swan up the river in the cave to two water falls. Then we stopped at the cultural festival in... More

It is a family owned and operator tour company that has been in business for 15 plus years. All of the family members are licensed, insured and knowledgeable. For... More

Sonny and Allan took 4 of us out to the Silk Cayes. Had a great time, saw lots. Never hurried. Calm, restful trip with a great lunch.

I have gone with these guys twice to Laughing Bird Key. Sonny is the best. Very accommodating to inexperienced snorklers. Highly recommend

We have been in Placencia over two weeks and had time to check pricing from all the tour operators in the area, Ocean Motion has the best prices and it's family owned and operated. We had a great time on our snorkel trip to Laughing Bird Caye, Sonny and Leo were very professional. I did not have much snorkel experience... More
