Had a wonderful time. The crew couldn't have been more accommodating and the food was delicious. Got to see whales and a gorgeous sunset.

The staff makes this a great adventure. We went on the 3.5-hour tour and the staff did a great job on the way out of talking with the kids and getting them ready for being in the water with the fish (and telling them how rare it would be to see a shark, etc.). They also did a good job... More

Everyone from Ocean Sports was so friendly and informative. Because we had a group of 5 it brought down our price to 125$/pp. Really enjoyed it and would certainly suggest them as a professional, reliable company.

Lots of fun from the moment of boarding the SeaSmoke. The crew was excellent - very informed, interesting and safety concious. We went out on a beautiful - couldn't be better type of morning, although the wind came up rather briskly around the time lunch was served. The snorkel spot was excellent - a nice variety of fish and a... More

A light breakfast on a beautiful catamaran, going to the best spot for a morning of snorkeling. What could be better? An informative talk (with pictures!) by one of the crew (very friendly, helpful and interactive) on the way. Having them in the water, pointing out creatures we would not have otherwise seen. Schools (I mean dozens and dozens) of... More

We have tried for two years now to simply rent a kayak from Ocean Sports, the first year it was 1:00 and we tried to rent a kayak and they tried to charge us $30 pp for 1 hour - which was when their "special" ended (@ 2:00). Second year, this year we walked down to the beach at 8:00... More

We're sorry you weren't able to rent a kayak when you visited our beach hut, but we do have a policy in place in which we will not rent kayaks, stand-up-paddleboards, or hydrobikes when the wind is blowing off shore.

If you want to have an incredible underwater experience I highly recommend going with Captain Doug Bach and his son James. The dive masters were fantastic- they know the reefs so well! We saw eels, sea turtles, white tip reef shark and got to hold and play with an octopus! Just absolutely fantastic and we stayed between 30-50 ft! Do... More

I have had several bad experiences on snorkel and dive boats and so approached the trip with skepticism. Check in, boarding were all efficient (lots of cattle-boat experiences can claim that, so I wasn't at ease just with that). But as the trip progressed, I relaxed. The breakfast was more varied than most. Staff was unobtrusive, yet very attentive. I... More

I have been snorkeling in Belize before at the second largest barrier reef, and this trip was equally amazing! The crew was friendly and informative. Also, we saw a large pod of dolphins on our return back. The included lunch was tasty, sandwiches, salad, chips and salsa topped off with chocolate chip cookies.
