My husband and I just returned from our first, but not last, trip to UnBELIZEable, Belize. Our main reason for choosing to vacation on Ambergris Caye was to snorkel the reef. After exhaustive research, because I am wired that way, we made a reservation for 1 full day and 2 half days of private snorkel tours with Happy & Grumpy. The reef and Lorne & Jolene, surpassed our high expectations by so much, that we canceled our mainland plans and booked a third half day of snorkel.

The freedom from the crowds, the ability to be the decision maker of where we wanted to go and how long we wanted to stay was priceless.

Although we are experienced at snorkeling, we learned new snorkel techniques from Jolene, were taken to reefs chosen by Lorne that hosted huge populations of fish and lots of sea life we had never seen before.

If you need or simply prefer the easy and comfort of their platform and awesome ladder, well, I canít say enough about it. Lorne designed and built this for every one, including those who have special needs, to be able to get in and out of the water with little effort.

Did I mention the VIP treatment we received? Even though the weather and water temperature was warm, the breeze was chilling once wet and back onboard. To our delight, Lorne opened his thermos and poured the yummiest hot chocolate. Lorne shared his special ingredient with us but you will have to discover it for yourself. Their attention to detail was superior as they were always making certain we were happy, comfortable and wanted for nothing.

We highly recommend Lorne and Joleneís professional and impeccable private snorkel experience aboard Happy & Grumpy. We are blessed to now call them friends and we send a special shout out to a very special boy, Hey Daniel, we canít wait to see you again!

Thank you Lorne, Jolene and Daniel for making our visit to the Belize reef spectacular!
