Silk Cayes was really beautiful! It was jaw dropping how huge the eagle rays, nurse sharks and precious turtles were. It was about an hour boat ride from Chabil Mar. There were 6-7 others with my friend and I and that's always fun. They provided an island BBQ after our almost hour snorkel trip. Beautiful corals/fans and abundant fish. I... More

We also used them to do the Monkey River tour, love that they are all local guides, they know what they are doing and where stuff is. Listen to them at... More

We came to lionfish hunt and the staff and crew were wonderful. We had 23 people on the dive trip. Skill levels ranged from seasoned instructors to folks who haven't been diving for years. They took the hunters out separately and then took the others out to an area with turtles and rays etc. they took care of our equipment... More

I have dove with Splash a few times now and would recommend them to any one travelling to the Placencia area. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I have two minor downsides. The first being that they are some of the most expensive scuba diving I have ever done around the world. The second being their use of smaller... More

Locate in Placencia, Splash has the finest dive masters and staff of any Dive shop. You receive personal attention from the time you arrive at the office and private dock until you return. They provide the best available equipment and you can get scuba certified by great instructors and staff.

It starts with the great service and multiple answers to emails that I got from Ralph Capeling. We were so busy before we left on our trip that we had little time to do research and plan. Ralph was patient and thorough helping us get info on snorkel trips and scheduling us even though it was Christmas Day when he... More

Truly a 10 out of 10 day for our family of 16 ranging in age from 7 to 80. Due to the size of our group, we arranged for a private charter on one of Splash's larger boats. We had strong swimmers on board ready to snorkel. We had less than average swimmers on board eager to give snorkeling a... More

Excellent boat, captain and staff, beautiful wall and reef dives! We requested to hunt Lionfish and were able to remove 30 of them! Made an excellent dinner! Elroy, our Divemaster was terrific! Went at just the right pace, found so many Lionfish and pointed out lots more to see, Green morays, lobster, nurse sharks. All in all, two great dives!... More

These guys have the boats, the gear, and the know how to put you on the best spots on the reef safely and efficiently. This trip was something I'd wanted to do all my life and I was not disappointed. Day one, we didn't have a full boat, so we went to nearby Silk Caye. We dropped off Mary, our... More

We went on a Sunday for a snorkelling trip to Laughing Bird Caye. Snorkels and fins can be hired for $5 USD. My wife and I were disappointed with the vessel. There were 6 others going snorkelling and 4 diving. It was a small covered motor craft with seating for 4 outside in front of the engines. The front windows... More
