We had an absolutely amazing time with splash!! My husband and I have both been snorkeling a few times, but my last experience was not great so I was a little bit nervous.

Our family vacation to Belize was made even that much more amazing because of the friendly, professional & caring staff. It's so evident when you go out on an excursion with them that they love what they do, they love where they live & they love sharing the experiences of Belize with others. We snorkeled (even got a little taste... More

I booked a 2 dive/snorkel trip, a trip where they drop off the snorkelers on a tiny Island to snorkel and then take the divers to a dive site nearby. After they dropped off my wife and 2 1/2 year old toddler, they took me and 3 other divers to the nearby dive site, the Silk Caye North Wall. We... More

We did a joint 2 dive and snorkel trip to Silk Caye. The boat ride is an hr of bumpy spots each way, but beautiful, and you come to a tiny tiny island with a few palm trees and picnic tables and a bathroom shack. The snorkeling was great with lots of little colorful fish and interesting sea creatures. But... More

Snorkel trip was fantastic - Benjy was our guide, took great care of us, looked out for us and the kids and was encouraging and kind. Boat was solid, timing was all good, family felt safe and taken care of.

A bit more expensive but definitely worth the price! Especially as a new Diver, it was great to have such good quality and professionalism to make the whole experience relaxing! I'd definitely recommend the Silk Caye dive with them, because it includes not only two great dives but an amazing snorkel!

We chose the Silk Caye snorkeling trip. The boat ride was an hour long and the views were magnificent from the boat. Once on Silk Caye we were given a guided snorkeling trip around the island in which the guide pointed out many fish, coral reef plant life, and other creatures that we would have missed had we gone into...

Patty and her group did an exceptional job in picking up our group of 30 on different days and times at the airport, coordinating adventures for us, ferrying us out of harms way when Hurricane Earl came calling, getting us back to our hotel, and many various trips back to the airport. Even fixed breakfast for us when we were... More

This dive shop is more expensive then most in the area, but that is because they are the best. We went to get PADI open water certified. Julio our instructor was awesome! He did regular knowledge reviews with us and made sure we knew our open water skills backwards and forwards. When it came to exam time, we were well... More

Splash is a two headed beast: the docile snorkelers and the rough and ready divers. Putting the two on the same boat is a mistake. The divers dominated. The divers were given our seats at the table so they could have a prep meeting. We were told we would switch back later but that never happened. If we wanted to... More

I think we may have been more upset about this guests experience with Splash than they were! To start with, our employee policy is no smoking and all of our dive masters and instructors know our policy - the individual the guest identified is no longer with us and he knows why. We are trying very hard to be the... More
