We had 21 of us so we booked a private excursion with Wildside Adventures. Conrad was quick responding to my inquiries and helpful setting up our group with a day trip. We had to take a ferry from Harvest Caye (NCL private island) This had to be booked on ship & sells out quick-- so if you are doing this from Harvest Caye-- get those ferry tickets asap on first day of cruise. Our first stop to snorkel was Silk Caye which is a gorgeous little gem. The crew set us up & guided us around this small island! There were several boats there making it a little crowded at lunch time. Tables & picnic areas were taken, so our lunch was just put out on the coolers. Not a big deal really- just a bitt awkward for a large group. Turtle Alley with the nurse sharks, turtles & stingrays was amazing and a must see! Highly recommend Placencia Wildside Adventures- they did a great job with our large group !

While in Placencia for several weeks this winter, I took quite a few day long snorkeling trips with Wildside going to Silk, Laughing Bird, Moho, and Lost Cays, as well as other spots. All were wonderful, but the very best were the 2 all day private trips with family and friends. Conrad and his very knowledgeable staff really worked hard to make sure we had a wonderful time. Our group varied in age from 11 years old to 70+ and they made sure we were all taken care of. There are plenty of excursions available in Placencia and we saw most of them in action. I’m sure their customers had good experiences but they were following a set program and herded around in a group. The Wildside guys found out what each of us was interested in and made sure we had the best possible experience. You just can’t do better than booking your trips with Wildside.

What an amazing day we had with Captain Jimmy. He picked us up dockside from the Turtle Inn and was about an hour ride to the first stop on the Cayes tour.

Best “out of office” picture that one can take is from this tiny little island,if that’s even what you can call it.

Jimmy was a very knowledgeable snorkel guide and pointed out all the amazing sea life below. We stayed at our first stop for a packed lunch which was delish stewed chicken and potato salad and fresh fruit. Funny enough, it’s the best meal we had this whole trip!

From this stop we went to find some turtles and nurse sharks and boy did we ever!!! Stingrays, loads of fish, one big Turtle and the loadsssss of nurse sharks! After about another 40 min snorkel we packed it in.

Stopped at Rays Cayes on the way back for a mojito. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and friendlier guide.

Thanks you again for such a great day!

We called Wildside Adventures on Monday morning and arranged a trip to Silk Cayes and Turtle Alley for the next day. We left a little earlier than normal and got to Silk Caye before the crowds. Jaime, our guide for the day, was fantastic. He snorkeled with us, pointing out the many different species of fish and diving to show us conch and hermit crabs. The turtles and nurse sharks were amazing. Don't miss this adventure if you have the time. Wildside is located just up the road on the lagoon side from Bucknor Street. They have a small sign, so just walked down the lane and ask anyone and they will point you in the right direction.

We went on a half day excursion to Laughing Bird Caye National Park and it was great. The water was clear and the reef colourful and full of a variety of fish and aquatic species. Our guides were friendly and very knowledgeable. They took the time to point out the different species we were observing. The snorkel tour laps the island that the park is on, our group was smaller (we had 11 or so people), which was nice. Some wildlife highlights included Baracuda, giant lobsters, moray eel and taipans!
