I have been to San Pedro 11 times. I have snorkelled several times with several different companies and tour guides. I was most impressed with Lil Alphonse Snorkelling trip. He made out entire group feel safe, and took time to explain how to snorkel properly. He also made sure all of us knew how to put on our gear properly.... More

First off, let me tell you , my husband is scared of swimming and quite frankly doesn't know how to swim. However, Alfonse and his partner were amazing and helped my husband feel at ease and ended up conquering his fears! His partner/assistance helped my husband the whole time. This was both of our first time snorkeling. It was unforgettable... More

I can't say enough about L'il Alphonse. His energy, knowledge and commitment to safety has never changed over the years. We've done a night snorkeling trip with him that was absolutely incredible, and yesterday did Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. Alphonse and his first mate ensured everyone's gear was prepared properly and safety was stressed. While in the water... More

Alphonse and adolpho are simply amazing. My husband and booked a trip with them and couldn't have been happier. We went to shark ray alley. They picked us up on our resort dock. Very energetic and knowledgeable. They totally put us at ease. I appreciated his genuine love and passion for this beautiful environment he was taking us into. He... More

I have been going out with Alphonse for over 15 years and he never disappoints. As others have said, you will be guaranteed to have your mask completely clear and no leaks! He takes the time to make sure each person has all the attention they need to ensure a safe and amazing adventure. No one knows more about the... More

Alphonse is energetic, optimistic, thorough, fun, and on a personal level a great man. We had the pleasure of utilizing his services for both Hol Chan and Shark Ray alley. He made sure we knew every cool detail about the creatures we came across as well as coral and plant life. It's impossible to be on a boat with this... More

Alphonse is a local snorkeling tour guide who doesn't work for any of the big banners..probably has one boat but he is AMAZING!! My husband and I went to Belize in Dec. I was really scared about going snorkeling because I have tried it before but couldn't do it. We went snorkeling with Alphonse and I had a bad feeling... More

Alfonse picked us up from the resort dock and quickly took us out to our first stop. We saw everything from a Manatee to Sharks, including a stop to find a Sea Turtle. He pointed out all sorts of fish and corrals. Spectacular Trip!

We booked a private Hol Chan / Shark Ray Alley tour with Lil Alfonse through our vacation rental at the Landings at Tres Cocos. We loved it - maybe even better than Hawaii! Alfonse picked us up at our dock and zipped us over to Hol Chan, pointing out starfish and rays along the way. Alfonse and his crewmember gave... More

Me and my girlfriend went snorkeling with Alphonse while in Ambergris Caye. It was truly an awesome experience - Alphonse knew exactly how to manage a group and gave us the biggest bang for our buck. Though there was a strong current at the time, we managed to see quite a bit of activity in the Hol Chan reserve and... More
