We had an amazing time on this tour. It was a little slow going because we were waiting on people from the cruise ship and then they had to get everyone checked in, but we got to wait in the shade on the dock so it wasn't too bad. We started the tour with Stacy giving us information about Belize, the water, mangroves, etc. as we made our way to Caye Caulker. Once there we placed our food order and then made our way out to the reef. The guides, Stacy and Clayton, made sure everyone was good and Stacy did a fantastic job of pointing out the sea life and coral. She drew out a moray eel, found brittle starfish for us to hold ,and even found a conch we could look at. From there we moved on to the sharks and sting rays. Stacy and Clayton again made sure everyone was safe and could interact with the animals. The boat Captain Alex even showed people how to feed the birds that were above us. The sting rays and sharks were a very cool and memorable experience! We then went back to the caye for lunch before heading back. We stopped and fed some tarpin on our way which was cool as well. Captain Alex made for a very smooth ride and stopped to show us some dolphins on the way back. Would highly recommend this tour.

We did a semi-private tour to Hol Chan with James and Clayton from Splash Waves tour. What an amazing day we had! They picked us up at our island resort with a quick stop in Cay Caulker before we headed out to the reef. This was the most amazing snorkeling I've ever done. The water is pristine, the coral is healthy and colorful and the fish are everywhere! It's special to be able to snorkel in this protected area and Clayton was very informative. My only complaint is that I wanted to stay longer!

The entire team was amazing ! Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they are doing and it shows. I myself can’t swim (I know) and they made it so easy for me to get around and ensured I didn’t miss out on one thing. The tour is such an adventure but also a learning experience! They took their time and showed us everything they could ! they stopped and showed us a mantatee and even a crocodile. This will forever be an unforgettable memory . If In belieze you definitely

Booked a trip through trip advisor, only to be told by the Tour Operator from Splash Wave Tours on San Pedro Belize, that I would have to pay an additional $212.00 because they did not have enough people for trip. Now it’s considered private. Well I get notified less than 24 hours, and your only given 24 hours to cancel. So you loose your refund. BE WARE THiS DOES NOT HAPPEN TO YOU.

Best snorkeling ever! We took a half-day tour to Hol Chan Marine reserve. We were picked up at our resort and taken to San Pedro where we switched to a comfortable boat with very friendly and helpful guides. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable as my husband and I are timid but enthusiastic snorklers. They gave us extra attention and kept us safe pointing out the greatest variety of sea life we have ever seen on a tour. A wonderful day!

Experience was fun. We were able to see a lot of sea life while snorkeling and swam with the sharks and sting rays. Boat doesn't have covering, so be prepared with sunscreen. The crew was friendly and informative. The youngest crew-member (don't remember his name) was rude to one of the guest and told her to "put away her stomach" after she came out of the water. Everyone else was nice and very informative. Would recommend the tour.

We booked an excursion through shoreexcursioneer.com and were taken via boat operated by splash wave tours. It was a little bit of a wait to get going because another party that booked the same tour was late to arrive. Once on the water and headed to the reef, everything was better than expected. The reef was amazing and the staff ( Stacey, Philip, and Felipe) were pleasant and helpful. Stacey was an excellent guide, doing a fabulous job of pointing out sea life. Pictures don't do it justice as you felt like you were in a Disney movie. It was a great day!

Rescheduled after we finally reached them. Kept trying to contact on the day we were rescheduled to by them to make sure we hadn’t been forgotten. After the time we were supposed to be picked up and other tours with other companies had commenced for the day, Splash Wave cancelled again and offered to reschedule us after we fly home. Poor communication, unreliable, seems to only be interested in cruise ship customers by the dates they cancelled. Didn’t offer any other options.

TL;DR: They cancelled our trip without notifying us, and yelled at us.

We booked this tour and paid a week in advance. The night before the tour was scheduled we had not heard from them, so we attempted to contact them to make sure they were still picking us in the morning.
When we finally got a hold of someone they told us that they would check to see if our tour was still happening because they have a minimum number of guests needed in order to do the tour. Hours went by with no response, so we called again. The woman on the phone would not stop interrupting me. I could not say a single sentence without being interrupted. I actually begged her to stop yelling at me and let me ask my question. She just kept yelling at me "there is a minimum".
5 hours later they finally let us know that they were cancelling our tour. We let them know that we wouldn't be able to cancel on TripAdvisor for our refund without a fee because it was less than 24 hours before the tour, they responded that it was our fault because we were the ones that chose to book through TripAdvisor.

We booked Hol Chan and Shark Alley but was not taken to Hol Chan.
When I realized we were not going to Hol Chan, I asked them to call our hotel.They did not and basically said that we are not going to Hol Chan because it is too far and the snorkeling is the same over here.

Mark, our guide was fantastic but the boat captain needed a course on friendliness and how NOT to be on your device at all times. The captain of the boat was the owners son, who I would assume would put in 1000% into his business. Not so much....his attitude was as if he did not even want to deal with us.

Mark was great and really did a good job showing us around and we did ultimately enjoy the excursion.

However, I would not use them again and they switched around our tour without being honest with us. It was only when I questioned the Hol Chan wrist band did they say we were not going there!

I despise rude people. James was way too busy on his device to be friendly or even help my 11 year old back on the boat as she was struggling.

If you do go out with them, question them.
