We did one trip at Monkey river and four snorkeling days. We had every time a nice guide, a good time and a hot sun. We have been lucky, just everything (guest house, boat, islands, sea...) for all of us (four), no tourists around. We saw beautiful corals and many tropical fishes.

We had a great experience with Ocean Motion this past March. We were looking for a simple morning snorkel adventure, and that is what we got. Laverne's timely and courteous responses to my pre-trip emails were very helpful while planning our short stay in Placencia. Russell was a great tour guide. We boated to Laughing Bird Caye and he guided us around the north side the island, pointing out all the lobsters, corals, and other amazing sea life! We are returning to Belize in a year with students and we will book tours with Ocean Motion again; Laughing Bird Caye and the Monkey River trip!

Ocean Motion Tours is an excellent LOCAL family business. They are fun, friendly, knowledgeable, friendly and professional (did I say friendly twice?).We had a great time at Cockscomb Basin(Jaguar Preserve) with Bernard for a rainy day trip. We didn't see alot of wildlife, but it was still a good day. We did see toucans! Our other trip was out to Silk Cayes with James for snorkeling. He took us on a fantastic snorkeling trip. We were in the water with lemon sharks, nurse sharks, lots of reef fishes, loggerhead turtles and 3 types of rays (spotted eagle, rough tailed and southern). James made a fantastic BBQ lunch and we had an exhiliarating ride back to Placencia in 5 foot swells. James did an excellent job at the helm. A true waterman! Laverne was very helpful advising us on how best to use our short 8 days with changeable weather in Placencia. Ocean Motion is a perfect example of why we like to hire the locals.

My husband and I used Ocean Motion for three different tours while staying in Placencia April 2012. I can't say enough good things about them. It's run by the whole family and they are friendly, helpful and create a very relaxing atmosphere. We snorkeled twice with Bernard as our guide and both times he was in the water with us watching out for our safety and showing us things we would have missed otherwise. The trip to Silk Caye was amazing. We snorkeled around the whole Caye first, then Bernard made us a great lunch on the Caye and after relaxing there he took us out to deeper water where we saw loggerhead turtles, spotted rays, and a small shark. On our trip up Monkey River we saw several alligators and while hiking through the jungle we got to see Howler Monkeys. We are going back to Placencia next year and will definitely be using Ocean Motion and Bernard again. I highly recommend them because they don't feel commercial at all, it feels like your out with friends for the day.

We had a most excellent experience with Ocean Motion Tours. My family went on the day long Laughing Bird Caye snorkeling and beach adventure. This was a most worthwhile experience and one of the highlights of our vacation. Laverne was very helpful in making sure the tour was scheduled for the one and only day we had available. Her husband and sons were very good guides. Laughing Bird Caye is private and very beautiful. The snorkeling was great and Bernard was very helpful in pointing out fish and other aquatic life. When we were not snorkeling, we relaxed on a beautiful beach and watched the pelicans feed on the fish right in front of us. The lunch was very delicious. I would recommend Ocean Motion Tours without any reservation. It is a wonderful family operated business and it shows in how much they care.
