Thank you for such a wonderful review, we really appreciate it and this gives our customers a great idea on what to expect. Snorkeling unexplored territories of our amazing living barrier reef. Once in Placencia be sure to look us up.

Best Regards

We like to get away from the cruise crowds so we decided to book a private tour with Mark. There were 5 of us including my mother and 14 and 20 year old kids. It was a fantastic experience.

We took the first tender from NCL's island (Harvest Caye) to Placencia. It was $39 a person. Once in Placencia, Mark and our other guide were easy to find. We then had an exhilarating boat ride-be prepared for some bumps if you get seasick easily- to our snorkeling destination (a reef since we were limited in time). Mark was a great snorkeling guide and was able to point out many varieties of fish. We spent about an hour and a half snorkeling before heading to Frigate Caye. This was a totally private island with an amazing and hospitable host. We relaxed and ate fruit on lounge chairs while lunch was prepared for us. We were not allowed to lift a finger.

Lunch was delicious. Lobster, beans, cheesy potatoes, salad....plus nice cold juice. After lunch we went back in the water for a swim. It was relaxing and PRIVATE. We then headed back to Placencia to make the 2:30 (last) tender.

Mark and our other guide were so knowledgeable and patient. They answered all of our questions and were great hosts. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and we will be back.

Without a doubt one of the greatest experiences my family and I have ever had. Snorkeling with Mark as he points out all the exotic fish. Afterwards he takes us to his private island where he and his wife prepare an exquisite lunch including some of the fish that he caught. Then we relax and do more snorkeling around the island. The kids even got a lesson as to how you break open coconuts. To finish off the trip he took us to a place where the fisherman were cleaning the catch of the day as sharks, rays and turtles surrounded us. The painful part of the trip was watching the island disappear as we headed back. I cant do justice to how picturesque the island was. Anyone that does this experience will agree without hesitation.

We went on two tours with Mark. Our first experience took us through the lagoon to Monkey River for a howler monkey adventure and lunch (this is a must do trip). The second tour was a snorkeling outing in open water near the private island of Frigate Caye. Mark was a fantastic snorkeling guide, showing us a number of fish, conche, coral, and nurse sharks. Once we finished snorkeling, Mark took us to the private island to swim, relax, and enjoy a lovely tray of fresh fruit. He is an amazing guide with a plethora of knowledge of the area. I really cannot say enough positive things about Mark's professionalism and tours. We had so much fun with Mark. If you are in Placencia, you really must contact Mark for any of your tour needs.
