Girls trip of 8 of us. He was absolutely amazing from the first moment of picking us up in a boat from our house. His sense of humor and sense of adventure made this trip extra special. The private island with fresh lobster, conch, potatoes and salad was delicious! He was patient with those who had not snorkeled today and... More

We can't say enough positive about Mark and our trip snorkeling. We wanted to do the private island snorkeling and lunch, but weather was rough for a few days. He worked with us and made sure we could go somewhere to get snorkeling before we left Belize, and we ending up at Laughing Bird Caye. He guided us through the... More

My boyfriend and I used Cayequest for a snorkeling trip to Pompion Caye (aka Pumpkin Caye). Mark was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable of the barrier reef, Cayes and sea life. We snorkeled right off Mark's boat. The coral reef was beautiful, healthy and full of sea life. We saw so many different types of fish. Mark speared a... More

The tours offered by Cayequest are top-notch and refreshing. My fiancé and I did the snorkeling tour with a visit to Pompion Caye. The underwater footage that we captured of the reef life was spectacular! We saw uninterrupted habitats and the beautiful coral ecosystem. Our seasoned guide, Mark, taught us so much about the symbiotic relationships of the barrier reef... More

My wife and I took the Pumpkin Caye tour with Marcus. He was entertaining and cooked a hell of a beach BBQ. We had lobster and conch. The snorkeling was top-notch. Well worth the time and money.

We chose Placencia to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary and were excited to experience snorkeling in the reef. Mark was highly recommended and very responsive in booking our trip. We had no idea how amazing it would be! The locations Mark selected were simply spectacular - and we reveled in Mark's knowledge of the reef inhabitants. Before exploring yet another... More

Mark has a passion for what he does, as this is demonstrated in his interaction with the marine life and the environment. He takes you snorkeling, identifying the corals and marine species, as you watch him spear your fresh caught lunch that is prepared on the private island. When on the island we are served fresh fruits and you can... More

If you want something personalized, where you can be the protagonist, with the best explanation for each detail that you want to ask, this is the snorkeling trip to do. But also, the fresh meal that he prepare with his hands ( from the hunting to the table) is the most delicious lunch that I have had in Placencia in... More
