Best snorkeling I've ever done! Our group of four went to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley with Alphonse. He was funny, kind, patient, knowledgeable, and incredibly passionate about snorkeling, sea life, and giving his customers a great experience. I would absolutely do this again (WILL do this again, I hope!). Next time, I hope to go to other snorkel sites with Alphonse. I recommend his snorkel trips highly!!

Four of us had a wonderful afternoon trip with Alfonse to Hol Chan and Shark Alley. He picked us up and dropped us off right at our rental’s dock. Some of us had little to no snorkel experience, and Alfonse gave good explanations and help with equipment and swimming technique. When we got in the water, his knowledge of the corals and the marine life made the trip exciting to all of us. We were lucky enough to have a pod of dolphin circle our boat, but that’s uncommon. this was a fantastic trip with a very personable guide.

My family of four (two of which are somewhat hard to please teenagers) went out with Lil Alphonse and Clive yesterday to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley for a couple hours of snorkeling and we all had a blast! Alphonse is very knowledgeable and even though he has likely been out thousands of times doing the same thing, he still got super excited every time he saw something swimming through and made sure everyone else saw it too. My teenagers can't stop talking about how much fun they had on the trip and wanted me to make sure to post a review so others knew how much fun it is.

Lil Alphonse did an amazing job. He took us over to Mexico Rocks for some snorkeling and saw some amazing fish, stingrays, turtles, eels and coral, but that wasn't what made it the best snorkel trip... the difference maker was Lil Alphonse himself! From the start he made sure we had a great experience, from mask fitting, to how to clean your goggles, and how to properly swim with flippers, etc. From there he jumped in to the water with us and shared his vast knowledge of all the different coral/fish by pointing them out and telling us about them as we went. This guy certainly knows his stuff. Thanks for an awesome time!

Lil Alfonse is AMAZING! Best snorkel guide we’ve had. Takes the time to help with masks and equipment. His knowledge is amazing too. Takes the time to help you truly have the best snorkel experience. Had some family members with who have never been to Belize and they were blown away by his knowledge and loved how he snorkeled with us and pointed out things constantly. It’s amazing what he can see. We’ve used him on multiple trips and I’m sure we will use him in the future! Thanks Lil Alfonse! And thanks for taking our picture! Turned out great :)
