We just came back from a trip to Placencia. We saw fliers in town for Roberts Grove sunset cruise "party boat", which was a 2-hour sunset cruise through the lagoon and included 2 drinks, all for $20 per person. However, it was low season and we learned that they were not offering this. We got hooked up with Ocean Motion... More

We went for a day of snorkeling including lunch. Our guide, Bernard, Sonny Leslie was very professional, entertaining and knowledgeable. It was a was experience as he took the time to teach us a lot about the reef ecosystem.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Our party included beginners and experienced snorkelers. Lunch was good because it included fresh fish that another tour party had just caught. The average rating was because of equipment failure.

So incredibly abysmal, I don't know where to start... The "tour van" was a broken down 1995 minivan with seatbelts that didn't work. The snorkeling gear that they assured us was in great shape was, in fact, mostly broken and non-functional, and none of the pieces that did work fit the children. My sons and I were able to go...

Sonny took us out to Laughing Bird Caye. He's a nice guy and happy to share us knowledge of the ocean with us. The snorkelling was good, but not great. I can't compare to anywhere else in Belize, but if you haven't done much diving or snorkeling, you'll live it. If you've been amazed before, you will think it's just... More

Full day snorkeling at Silk Caye and snorkel with nurse sharks. Sonny was a great guide, knowledgeable and friendly. The caye was beautiful, prisine sand, plenty of fish and the bluest calm water. Lunch was provided at Silk Caye cooked by Evan, fresh fish he had caught the day before, with beans and cheesy potatoes- delicious! The snorkel with nurse... More

Sonny was outstanding. Even a six year old can swim with the Sharks, Rays and turtles. Got turned down by the big company that had 20 people and served chicken. Had fresh caught fish on a six person boat without waiting for scuba divers. This is a much better experience than can be found by big companies. Seek the personal... More

I will separate my review into a review of the Ocean Motion people and a review of the Caye itself. Sonny drove the boat and was our snorkel guide. He was competent, knowledgable, and personable. The other Ocean Motion folks were friendly and efficient. The Caye itself is tiny and very pretty. It is a national park or whatever the... More

Along with 5 other women passengers, this was an amazing trip to this Marine Reserve. It was a guided tour and we walked right off the shore to start our snorkeling tour of the area. Our guide was OK, however, he seemed to lack in people skills in not telling us ahead of time, exactly where we were going, how... More
