These folks will take very good care of you. They are knowledgeable and friendly. They seem to know the ideal spots at the right time for seeing the best species under water. Very good choice and the most honest I've found in several visits.

We didn't have high hopes of seeing the whale sharks as they had not been spotted all year. We rearranged our schedule when we got there. The night before we we supposed to go out, we were told they saw one that day so the boat will go out! They were moving so fast, we ended up not diving with... More

Catch and Eat Fishing tour. We were picked up by Kenny, and driven to the marine, where we were met by the staff and welcomed to the adventure. (SUN SCREEN WARNING THIS IS A FULL DAY) Off we went to the sea on calm waters in a 23' skiff, to fish the day away and then snorkel the reef. There... More

If you love the ocean; this place must be on your list of destinations! Our guides were outstanding and the water was some of the best in the world. Cannot wait to get back for more adventures!

Best diving I have ever done. Great visibility. Warm water. Great sea life and colors .There are a lot of swim throughs. There is so much to see at a shallow depth ( 40-65 feet).

Took a tour with Jaguar Reef/Almond Beach. Guides were fantastic! This tour was an easier boat ride, half day, compared to the Barrier Reef snorkel we did. Here we saw tons of brilliantly colored fish and corals and a nurse shark. Water here is crystal clear and comfortably shallow. We don't have anything to compare to, but even other experienced...

I had a great time snorkeling in the world's second largest reef! The waters were kind of choppy getting out there but once we got the crystal blue waters it was calm. We were given instructions and then let out of the boat into clear waters with great visibility. A ton of colorful fish darting around, rays, groups of barracuda,... More

We were there on a too chilly day and the ocean chop was a rough ride. WE found one place on the reef though with warmer waters and needed to stay in that environment

Lots of wildlife, large fish, turtles, eagle rays. Several sites to dive around the reef. Not as colorful coral as some places but a very nice dive nonetheless.

Spent our first week in Belize on Glovers Reef. As I understand it Becky and her son Warren were kind of raised on the reef and definitely have that laid back Island attitude. They don't really talk much but that is OK once you understand its just their way. I felt a little Island fever the 2nd day as there... More
