Hands down this was the BEST PART OF THE TRIP! We booked a private tour with Jacob and Chris. First off these guys were AMAZING! We have done a lot of snorkeling tours around the world and none of them compare to this one. What we saw , what we learned, what experienced on this one was PRICELESS. These guys went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. We have read reviews, did our research and didn't want to get stuck on crowded commercial boats, Yes we paid a little more , but it was worth it. One of the best parts of this trip , besides seeing turtles ,manatees, sharks, stingrays, corals and all the fish , was that these guys treated us like FRIENDS and not just another number on the boat. We left the dock as strangers and arrived back like FAMILY. I caught my first fish, My wife caught her first lobster ! We were recommended a spot to get our seafood cooked up. Everything went PERFECT! We still talk about that experience and how it made memories for a lifetime. We will recommend these guys to everyone we meet. Looking forward to our next trip back to belize ! Thanks guys!! ( Jorge/Denise)

The Spearfishing Shack was the HIGHLIGHT of our Belize trip!!! It was worth every penny and the experience was PRICELESS. We saw manatees mating, 3 different species of turtles, tons of fishes, and beautiful hidden coral formations. Captain Jacob and Chris were very patient and took their time to educate us with everything we had seen, from marine life to the Belizean culture. This tour gave us unforgettable memories and the reviews speak for themselves! 5 STARS - HIGHLY RECOMMEND for couples, families, friends, and even solo travelers.

HERE'S THE SHORT AND SWEET: I will be back to Belize solely for the purpose of bringing my two brothers to experience a day out on Jacob's boat. It is very much a guided trip in that he knows these waters like the back of his hands. These guys will tailor the trip to your needs better than any of the other outfits on Caye Caulker. On the other hand, hanging out on Jacob's boat literally feels like you're out fishing with an old friend. After our hunt he told us where we could go to get our fish prepared for us. The two dinners worth of fish we ate absolutely blew our mind. The only thing I regret is not bringing the GoPro out to get some awesome footage of this crazy experience.

We did everything all the "crowded commercial boats" did but better and longer . Was with captain Jacob and his first mate shane for this adventure. Returned from my travels the other day and this tour really stuck with me ,So i had to give these boys a 5 star! Dont jump on the commercial everyday waste your money tours, try something different. Manatees, fish, Reef Shark!, turtles , nurse shark, fish and more fish...i even caught my own lobster and ate it that night. Look for this company or email them . they do alot of online bookings instead of the walk ins. Every Penny worth it ! Thanks again guys and will tell everyone about it!

Traveling with 4 @24 year olds, 16 year old son, husband and myself. Some wanted to see (and possibly swim with)manatees, some wanted to merely snorkel, some wanted to see some sharks (nurse...not dangerous), and some wanted to HUNT! Me, I’m happy with a great boat ride and learning about environment (history, eco concerns, etc) and snorkeling. In short, everyone got their needs met and more. Truly unique tour with Jacob and Shane. Learned a lot about islands and reef of Belize, swam with two manatees, one turtle, three nurse sharks (not baited, they just hung around which is much more authentic experience). Learned a lot about types of fish and spearfishing and had an overall exceptional day. Didn’t catch a lot but Jacob did and he shared:) Tour provided plenty of water and fruit. Everyone had a lot of questions about tour. I assured them that I got the vibe Jacob would get a feel for what we wanted and adjust as needed. That is exactly how it went and the beauty of a smaller tour. Highly recommend.
