There were 4 of us plus Johnny and Edgar. Edgar was in the water with us the entire time showing us around the reef. We saw rays, eels, turtles and lobster which unfortunately were out of season. Swimming with the sharks and rays at Shark Alley was good and we never felt any danger. We have been on other snorkel trips in other locations with large groups and just felt like we were being herded around. Johnny and Edgar made it very personnel and assisted our wives with their gear we had brought our own. We were picked up and dropped off at the dock of our hotel which was convenient.

Spectacular day! Top notch professional service. Highly recommend for families. We are a family of 4 with a special needs child. Our guide Johnny was so amazing we booked a second snorkeling trip. The snorkeling was the best we have ever done. Stingrays, turtles, barracuda, sharks, and more. The crew was extremely knowledgeable. If you like snorkeling then book in with Grumpy and Happy. Unbelizable experience.

If you are into snorkeling, you have to go to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. It is definitely the best snorkeling spot in the Caribbean. This is easy to arrange if you are staying on Ambergris Cay, not so easy if you are on a cruise ship that stops in Belize City. Belize City is too far from Hol Chan to do a day-trip boat trip. However, it is very easy to do through Grumpy and Happy. They will arrange a Tropic Air flight from Belize City to Ambergris and will pick you up and take you on a wonderful private snorkeling trip to Hol Chan. The biggest worry is getting off the cruise ship in time to make the plane. Don't worry- a couple of things are in your favor: One, although Belize is a tender port, Royal Caribbean (at least) does not use their own tenders. The Belize tender is big enough to hold all of the ship excursion people plus everyone lined up to get on the first boat. Second, the Tropic Air airport is really close to the port and third, it is extremely small airport with just a single small house. There is no security screening and no lines. We arrived at 9:20 and easily made the 9:30 flight. Also, Tropic Air is fine with changing the flight times. We came back on a 2 o'clock flight, with plenty of time to make it to the port. Although it is pricey, you need to do this trip. It is totally worth it.

Our snorkeling trip was wonderful. Communications for booking were prompt and to the point. We ended up asking to modify our timing and they were very flexible, understanding and accommodating where they could be. Very nice to be picked up and delivered to our resort's dock. The boat was comfortable, Johnny was kind and knowledgeable, provided water and fruit after our first snorkel and helped our tween be more comfortable as she was a bit tenuous about snorkeling with the sharks. Snorkeling on the reef was excellent, Johnny's guidance helped us see much more than we would have had we done it without his watchful attuned eyes. Good outfit!

We hired a private snorkeling trip through Grumpy and Happy for a friends birthday while staying in Ambergris Caye. The trip was an amazing experience! We met our guide Victor who showed up at the dock promptly at 8:30am. We made a quick stop to pay for our entry into Hol Chan Marine Reserve and then were off. First stop was at Hol Chan. We were the first ones there as most of the other guides and group trips start at 9:00. Having the place to ourselves, Victor was able to guide our group of six and point out the many species of fish and other marine life. We saw a large moray eel, which was probably the highlight. But also many other cool things to see here as well! After about an hour of snorkeling, we were onto our next stop, shark ray alley. This was the highlight of the entire week for most of us having the the opportunity to swim with nurse sharks! Victor "wrangled" up the largest of the nurse sharks he called Big Bertha! He put Big Bertha on her stomach and into a sleep/trance so we could see it up close and even touch it. What a cool experience! There was lots of other nice coral to see here as well as a number of rays and numerous species of fish. After about another hour of snorkeling, we had an enjoyable ride back getting to see the south end of Ambergris Caye, while enjoying the turquoise blue water. Doing a private trip with your own private guide is the only way to go. I would highly recommend planning your snorkel adventure though Happy and Grumpy! They were easy to work with, communicated effectively and often, and checked in after our trip to ensure we had a great time. Will use them again if we go back for sure!
