First of all, Splash Divers is a safe and professional dive operation we can fully recommend. If it wasn’t for a few flaws, we could give 5 instead of 4 stars. We had our own equipment, so we can’t say anything about their renting equipment. We haven’t heard anything negative from our dive buddies who rented their equipment, though. Normally,... More

I went on a two-tank dive to Silk Cayes with Splash, and then a two-tank whale shark dive to Gladden Spit. The divemaster for the Silk Cayes dive was Marvin. He was friendly and professional, and we saw nurse sharks and turtles in the dives to, respectively, North Wall and White Hole. The divemaster for the whale shark dive to... More

We went to silk cayes with splash and had an amazing day. One of us did a refresher open water dive with Marvin before the real dive and the other went snorkelling with Mario. It was a fantastic day, everyone was really great and knowledgable, we saw amazing fish, coral and then the promised turtle which swam right under us!... More

The Silk Cays are three tiny islands. The primary island is only large enough for a few picnic tables, an outhouse, a grill and a few lawn chairs. It is a bit over an hour ride from Placencia each way. It is a full seven hour day from start to finish with about sixty to 90 minutes spent snorkeling. The... More

As always my diving experience with Splash was excellent. I dove for 6 days straight and the treatment was the same everyday. Courteous and helpful staff in the office, excellent guides, captains and DM's on the boat, and a great lunch. This is a spot I would return to anytime. Thank you Splash Dive for a wonderful week. Highly recommend... More

I tried four different tours with this group. I am a solo traveler and I told them this when I was booking. The day before my first tour they told me if I wanted to do any of the tours with them I would have to pay for two people. They were already priced higher than everyone else in town.... More

SplashBelizePR, General Manager at Splash Dive Shop, responded to this review

Due to the cost of conducting inland adventure tours, we require a minimum of 2 guests for the trip to be economically viable. The cost to conduct these tours is more than the revenue from one guest. Solo travelers can book if we have other guests booking the same tour. When this person came into our dive center, our front... More

We had a great day snorkeling the outer reef. The sea life and vivid colors were amazing. This caye is a marine preserve, so lots of fish and coral species to see. It was like being in an aquarium! On our third snorkel site, we saw a loggerhead turtle and southern stingrays. This was the highlight of the day. The... More

We took our entire family, including a 2 y.o, on a snorkeling trip to Silk Caye with Splash Dive Shop and could not have been happier (well maybe except for some sunburn...our bad!!). They fitted those in our group who did not have their personal equipment with mask, fins and snorkel, then gave a thorough safety briefing prior to loading... More
