I am a beginning swimmer so I initally was nervous about snorkeling. Our guide Adolfo was so very patient with me. He allowed me to hold on to life ring so that I'd feel secure and helped guide me along the way. Because he was so patient I was able to truly enjoy the snorkeling. He was very informative. Would...

If you are passionate about snorkeling, then this is the dude you want. If you are not passionate about snorkeling, you will be after going on an excursion with Alphonse. His passion for and knowledge of the fish, creatures and corals is unprecedented. Do a private tour if you can afford it. We did three. One to Mexico Rocks and... More

I did a 2pm afternoon excursion with Alphonse. Great group, and awesome time doing Shark Alley and Hol Chan. Alphonse is a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. I really enjoyed the tour and the being on the boat, seeing the nurse sharks in the afternoon was pretty epic. They picked me up and dropped me off at the place I was... More

Lil Alphonse is fantastic. My second time in Belize, I decided to check out Lil Alphonse due all the great reviews. And now I know why he's rated so highly. This guy really knows his stuff. Not just the local waters and reefs, but people too. He knows how to talk to people and give them what they need. We... More

We went on a 1/2 trip from our hotel at Pelican Reef to the Reserve and Shark Alley From the moment we stepped on the boat Alphonse took time to explain what we were going to do and how we were going to go about it. He took time with everyone before they got into the water and made sure... More
