Gorgeous day, beautiful sights
Christian_H, Nov 2022
We were very lucky to have a private tour with just my husband and I. We were picked up at our resort and off we went. We stopped at a place on the reef and saw so much beautiful sealife. We then stopped at a small secluded island. Lastly, we went into deeper waters to see the rays. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and personable. This trip is highly recommended. Thank you for such a memorable day.
Medz and Jeff are amazing!

Medz and Jeff are the real deal - Medz drove us out to the keys to a couple cool snorkel spots where Jeff gave a great guided snorkel tour. He pointed out several things in the water that we wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. Got to see some great wildlife - starfish, tons of exotic fish, jellyfish, interesting coral, stingray(s!), barracuda, urchins, crabs, and more! We even saw a crocodile, a dolphin, and some manatees on the way in! Between snorkels we ate some delicious fresh pineapple on the beach and heard some of their stories. Medz and Jeff are incredibly nice guys and I would 100% recommend them if you’re looking for a great tour.
Excellent full day snorkel with BBQ

10/10 best part of my trip! Guides were knowledgeable, really helpful and friendly! Saw many fish, eels, sea urchins, stingrays. Water was amazing. Definitely bring zofran if you get motion sick. I wish we did more excisions with this group!
Great Snorkel Despite Mother Nature... And Great Operators made the Experience Memorable for all Levels
plurenzjr, Feb 2020
Never had a tour operator work so hard to make things happen. The day we were scheduled the seas were rough and considered unsafe for both the boat & snorkeling. They had to cancel. I explained that this was the tour of our Belize trip that my wife was looking forward the most and that the next day was our last day in Belize. The weather calmed down a bit but not perfect, but safe. When we got out to the reef area, they asked what our level was. My wife is beyond an expert swimmer, myself... way down on the skill scale. Marvin, the boat captain, started us out on a little easier swim. Our Guide Jeff, took us around the reef and pointed out interesting parts of the reef. Did not realize how time flew by. we were out for 50 minutes. We moved to deeper waters where we saw bigger and more interesting coral and saw rays, barracudas and a myriad of tropical fish. Another 30+ minute swim. Meanwhile the guide stayed close to make sure we (me) were safe (there was a little current) and that we were enjoying our swim. I'm not sure if it was the 50 minute swim or they picked the perfect pineapple for a trip to the research island for a break but it was one of the best we had. Marvin & Jeff... Great job!!! Thanks...
