I booked a whale shark dive months in advance with the company. We were traveling with friends and all wanted to do this dive together. We read tripadvisor and thought selecting this company would be the best. We were wrong. They lost our reservation. Said it went into their "spam". So now we wouldnt do the excursions with our friends... More

The initial contact had some lags in email exchange. But toward the end emails were responded to promptly. We did snorkeling for three of us. The day of check-in, since we have diving experience, the staff seemed very organized, friendly, and approachable. Divers went out in two boats, and the snorkelers were in the third. We snorkelers had a master... More

Seahorse will take you all over Belize to some of the best diving in southern Belize. Boats are convenient dual engine with bimini tops for shelter from the sun. If you are certified, they are likely the best deal in town and well experienced crews. Check where they are going. When and how long the boat rides will be. We... More

My husband and I are certified divers but hadn't dive dove for quite a while. Our teenagers needed a resort course. Seahorse was excellent! Kirk was our first dive master and got the kids comfortable and knowledgeable. After the shallow dive on a beautiful coral bed, lunch on a caye, we split up so my husband and I could do... More

Seahorse Dive Shop is a fine group- don't get me wrong. They're very good guides, smart and great with helping out people who have never snorkeled before. But for my snorkeling style (very comfortable in the water, like to take my time, have my own snorkel gear, etc.) it was not an ideal trip to Silk Caye. Was part of... More

Awesome trip with this group. Dive master was fantastic! In that he was attentive, enthusiastic and made sure to point out the things we would have missed on our own.

We went on a snorkel tour with this group out of Placencia. The cost included a shuttle to and from the boat to our house, lunch, all the equipment and an amazing guide - all for $85 per person! We loved every minute of it and saw sharks, turtles, rays and an amazing array of other fish and sea creatures!
