We just dived with Splash Dive Center in Placencia, Belize and had the time of our lives. The boats are well maintained, the crew is knowledgeable. They took us go reefs where the flora and fauna were healthy and the water clear. The crew takes care of our gear after we set up the first day, even rinsing and hanging the gear to dry every afternoon.
We cannot say enough good about this dive center. The shop is clean and well maintained.
For a great dive vacation, you will want to go diving with Splash.

Booked a snorkeling trip in July 2013 to Laughingbird Caye. This island is incredible. Has to be the most beautiful place I have ever seen. Splash responded to our last minute scheduling email the night before, which was much appreciated. We did have a problem with pickup in the morning, but it was quickly and calmly resolved. Patty the owner was very helpful and friendly, and the guide we had (Rico) was knowledgeable and attentive. More importantly, he was quick to let us go off and explore on our own when we told him we were happy to just float around and relax. I could envision a US guide sticking rigidly to the itinerary, but Rico said "We are here to do what you want; it is your vacation". Definitely the right attitude. We had a great lunch of salad, coconut rice, Belizian chicken, and watermelon on the island. Plenty of food and water. Splash has a good fleet of boats and seems to schedule them very efficiently. Our group was very small and we never felt rushed. The Splash vans are very nice and roomy. Much better than others we have had. We paid about $80US for the day (6-7 hours total). The snorkeling equipment wasn't quite as nice as other gear we have used in the past, but definitely adequate. Overall, we had a great experience, and it was an excellent value. Thanks, Patty!

Splash dive center is an amazing shop! They are very professional and experienced. The trip i took was to silk key and i loved it! They not only took you to 2 dive sites but they also gave us a delicious lunch and gave us tge opportunity to snorkle with sharks, turtles, and rays! I felt very safe while i was amoung the crew and while diving they prepared me well for the dive it was a long training session but it was well worth it! You must go to splash dive center in placencia it was an amazing experience that i wont forget with wonderful friendly people your missing out if you dont try diving with splash

I did my DM with Splash a few years ago. Already before my arrival I was met by hospitality and professionalism. Throughout my stay this these guiding principles made time very enjoyable. I can highly recommend Splash and Placencia to anyone considering a DM.
