What Guest Are Saying?
My husband and I just returned from 10 UnBelizeable days in Placencia, and Seahorse made our trip! We had planned on diving a lot and were able to dive 4 days, 3 of which were 3 tank dives, inside and outside of the reef.The family-run business has Brian in the office, Capt Sean at the helm, and Harry and Max as their expert dive masters. The Seahorse crew are all incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate, and helped facilitate our love of Belize, not only underwater but on land as well. We dove safely, laughed and learned a lot, and felt like part of the family by the end of our time. We cannot highly recommend Seahorse enough! They were original in the village, and their longevity is apparent from the customer service, great food during surface intervals, and fantastic dives! Looking forward to getting back!
I did their blue hole trip at the end of December and the crew was great! They pointed out great fish for me to take pictures of and kept us entertained on our 3hr boat out to the dive site. They keep their gear clean and I had a problem with my regulator before the dive and they knew how to fix it quickly. The divemasters did a great job keeping the group together! I recommend them to anyone who wants to do a dive in Belize go with these guys!
I've been diving around the world for over 30 years and I can unequivocally state that Seahorse Dive Shop offers the best dive experiences I've had anywhere. Their equipment, knowledge of the reefs, and professional staff make this the best dive shop in Placencia. In addition, I've been bringing students here to dive and this is their first dive experience. The staff at Seahorse not only supervise them closely, they also have great patience with novice divers. When visiting Placencia to dive be sure to choose Seahorse Dive shop for all your diving experiences. You will not be disappointed.
