Pros: It was easy to sign up and book online through their website. When I called with some questions the guy on the phone was very nice and accommodating. They were really quick and organized when it came to getting out of the water back into the boat after the dive. Not easy in 8-10 ft swells. They did seem... More

We spent a week in Placencia and we had planned to dive every day until we realized how expensive gas was.The diving was a lot more expensive than we had anticipated but Brian Jr worked out a deal with us since it was a group of us. We were staying on Placencia Caye making this dive shop our choice since... More

Seahorse was one of the choices when I was in Placencia, they have cheaper price then some other, however, the stuff are so friendly and funny, but I really suggest to dive with them only if you get used to dive, the new divers might not like it especially if they are looking for a luxury trip.

Larry, divemaster, was great. Two tank dive, with lunch between dives. Wall dive with nurse sharks, eels and especially Larry catching a lion fish and feeding it to a nurse shark, incredible. All crew great and super basic lunch with amazing fishballs and rice with bread pudding! Last short snorkeling with rays, loggerheads and nurse sharks a lifetime memory. Thank... More

I have been diving for a long time, and most often in the Caribbean. Very rarely am I asked for my dive card, and never am I asked about my experience. I was really impressed with Seahorse, and their professionalism for diving. We had scheduled a 110 foot dive into the “shark hole”, along with a couple of smaller dives... More

Seahorse Dive Shop made my first ocean diving experience wonderful! They were willing to pick us up, even though we were staying in Maya Beach. My husband and I booked two dives with Seahorse, once to Laughing Bird Caye and once to Silk Caye. We were originally scheduled to visit Silk Caye on our first trip, but due to an... More

The Seahorse staff did a great job of looking after us. I was beyond sad that I was unable to see the Whale Sharks. They were there, we were there, and the conditions were favourable, but the minimum number of paying divers was not met and we were unable to accomplish our goal for coming to Belize. Sadly this was... More

I did and did not like these guys. I went out to Silk Caye with this shop. They have plenty of gear and take you out to the various places for snorkeling or diving and you get lunch too. My guide that took us out snorkeling was good in the fact he would point things out and tell you what... More

We had a great experience with Seahorse. Every dive was a full day, 2-tank adventure. Boat rides are a bit long, but well worth it. I saw some of the most amazing sea life I've ever seen, and the instructors are very laid back and helpful. They want you to have a good time! Best of all, we went whale... More
