We had wanted to do a Monkey River tour, to see the Howler Monkeys, and decided to use Ocean Motion for our tour. We were very pleased with the whole process, from getting signed up, and throughout the whole day of sightseeing! Our boat driver was Bernard, who runs the company. He explained about the trees, and birds we were... More

The boat trip to Monkey River was fast but fun. We cruised down the river and saw birds and beautiful trees. Ralph was a great guide(one of the first tour guides down the river) and took us on a jungle walk to see medicinal trees and howler monkeys. Lunch in the little town was fine and on the way back...

Sonny, Evan and Linda took excellent care of us. My husband was very nervous and apprehensive about snorkeling so far out in the ocean. Sonny did a very good job of calming him down and reassuring him he was safe my husband was then able to relax and enjoy his time snorkeling. They prepared a shore lunch for us of... More

He dove down and picked up little creatures and taught us about them. Felt safe the whole time. Other guide stayed on beach... More

Went snorkeling and to the Mayan Ruins with Ocean Motion. These folks are great and super flexible - it rained quite a bit while I was in Placencia, so they worked with me to figure out which tours I should go on (that wouldn't be rained out) and were nice enough to allow me to switch tours once we knew...

My wife and I went to Silk Caye with Ocean Motion. The boat captain, Sonny and his brother Evan were pleasant and diligent. We brought our own masks and snorkels but borrowed fins from Ocean Motion. The gear we borrowed was up to date and well maintained, as was the boat. Silk Caye is pretty much a glorified sand bar... More

Our guide led us right off the beach of this Caye to snorkel a complete circle around this small Caye... More

While shopping in Placencia we came across Ocean Motion Tours. We rented a boat for $375 from 7-4pm (way cheaper than renting from the hotel). Our party included 2 families with young kids (10 total). Spent most of the day at Silk Cayes snorkeling while some of our party went fishing. Great place to snorkel and its beautiful. Our captain...
