“Snorkeling with Garbutt's”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

My wife has a mild handicap (MS) and does not swim. When we talked about trying to do the snorkeling needless to say she was hesitant. We stopped at Garbutt's Fishing Lodge to ask questions and Dennis offered to take us out that afternoon. He spent 2 hours teaching her to snorkel and taking her over the coral reefs. If you look at the picture, it says a thousand words. This was the highlight of our trip to Punta Gorda.

“Knowledgeable, friendly, a must-do in PG!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We had a phenomenal time scuba-diving the Port of Honduras with Dennis at Garbutt's. Dennis is a former teacher, and worked with Earthwatch, and is a strong conservationist in Belize. He is a great person to talk with and learn from. It had been many years since my husband and I last dove, but he eased us into it very comfortable - we all had a great time. They have nice rooms with AC that overlook the water, and they provide great fishing trips! I would definitely stay or dive with Garbutt's again!

“Great diving the Sopadilla Cayes”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

It was a long boat ride from Punta Gorda, but the dives were really nice. Loved Seal Caye!! A truly unique diving experience. Not what I would call an easy, full service dive operation, but it was fun, and we would do it again! Would love to stay at their cottages in Punta Gorda ( we checked them out, when we were leaving, really nice!) and we saw the cottages at Lime Key when we were out there. Would like to stay there too!

“Beautfiful sorkel day!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Our university group used this company to snorkel on our last day in Punta Gorda. Snake Caye was beautiful, but beware of the sand fleas, they bite! Stay in the water! The snorkel part was good, we saw some starfish and other pretty fish, but it was kinda rocky in the water and I felt we were swimming in circles. The little beach was my favorite part, lunch was good too!

“Fun Day”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Great and personalized attention. We visit Lime Caye every year.If you want to relax, enjoy the sea, go fishing,snorkeling , or diving, this is a terrific place. Sandra's food is the best, and Dennis Garbutt will make sure you return again. This summer we enjoyed kayaking, a great BBQ, music and a great company.It's an excellent destination for a fun time with the family.
