I have dove with Splash a few times now and would recommend them to any one travelling to the Placencia area. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I have two minor downsides. The first being that they are some of the most expensive scuba diving I have ever done around the world. The second being their use of smaller... More

Locate in Placencia, Splash has the finest dive masters and staff of any Dive shop. You receive personal attention from the time you arrive at the office and private dock until you return. They provide the best available equipment and you can get scuba certified by great instructors and staff.

It starts with the great service and multiple answers to emails that I got from Ralph Capeling. We were so busy before we left on our trip that we had little time to do research and plan. Ralph was patient and thorough helping us get info on snorkel trips and scheduling us even though it was Christmas Day when he... More

Truly a 10 out of 10 day for our family of 16 ranging in age from 7 to 80. Due to the size of our group, we arranged for a private charter on one of Splash's larger boats. We had strong swimmers on board ready to snorkel. We had less than average swimmers on board eager to give snorkeling a... More

Excellent boat, captain and staff, beautiful wall and reef dives! We requested to hunt Lionfish and were able to remove 30 of them! Made an excellent dinner! Elroy, our Divemaster was terrific! Went at just the right pace, found so many Lionfish and pointed out lots more to see, Green morays, lobster, nurse sharks. All in all, two great dives!... More

These guys have the boats, the gear, and the know how to put you on the best spots on the reef safely and efficiently. This trip was something I'd wanted to do all my life and I was not disappointed. Day one, we didn't have a full boat, so we went to nearby Silk Caye. We dropped off Mary, our... More

We went on a Sunday for a snorkelling trip to Laughing Bird Caye. Snorkels and fins can be hired for $5 USD. My wife and I were disappointed with the vessel. There were 6 others going snorkelling and 4 diving. It was a small covered motor craft with seating for 4 outside in front of the engines. The front windows... More

I have snorkeled with this outfit twice, 2013 and December 2016. Both times we received excellent service by friendly staff. The food that was given to us during the lunch break was very good. The snorkeling around Silk Caye was very good, much better than in the Florida Keys. The service here is better than anything I received in the... More

We went out to Laughing Bird Caye for a day of snorkeling. We were a little disappointed at first because of the weather (it was overcast and super windy all day), but we quickly got over that because our guide, Marvin, was awesome, and the water was warm and there were still plenty of fish to see. The rides over... More
