“Snorkel heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We saw nearly every fish displayed on our fish identification card, plus tons of gorgeous coral. There were parrotfish, wrasses, lobsters, crab, cowfish, butterfly fish, angel fish, nurse sharks, stingrays, and so much more. It was so amazing, we went twice. We booked 2 all day trips with Ocean Motion in Placencia. They had great prices and took small groups of snorkellers only (no divers, so we went in shallower water where the more colourful fish are)

“Dive trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Great diving- just a short distance from a nice wall dive. Saw turtles, barracuda and a huge Moorey Eel. Ate lunch on the island- could use a little cleaning up but overall a nice place to hang for an afternoon of diving!

“Fun experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Not great diving but okay... It is a protected area, and very small. Neat to see the boobies nesting :)

“Good snorkeling....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Once we got off of the island (our guide entered the water via rocky path...ouch), the snorkeling was good. Saw lots of schools of fish. Enjoyed lunch on the island and watching the gulls dive for their lunch.

“Snorkling via Robert's Grove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Went snorkeling with Robert's Grove guide, Doren. He did an awesome job and made us feel welcome. Laughing Bird Caye was beautiful and amazing and under the ocean was just as serene as the Caye. Def recommend going!
