High Point Travel and Placencia Wildside Adventures

Since 2019, I have been serving as the primary contact for Placencia Wildside Adventures, answering both emails and WhatsApp messages. Placencia Wildside Adventures has been offering a diverse range of adventure activities and tours in the Placencia region for the past 3.5 years. However, during this time, we realized the growing demand for specialized snorkeling private tours and mainland excursions originating from Placencia.

Placencia Wildside Adventures, our flagship brand, offers a wide range of adventure activities and tours, including snorkeling, to cater to the diverse interests of our guests. Through this extensive experience, we have gained deep knowledge of the best snorkeling destinations in Placencia and have fine-tuned our services to meet the specific needs of snorkeling enthusiasts.

To further enhance our offerings, we established High Point Travel as a dedicated brand specializing in snorkeling private tours and mainland excursions originating from Placencia. This strategic move allows us to focus solely on creating exceptional snorkeling experiences for our guests, ensuring that they have access to the most breathtaking and vibrant underwater sites.

Our team of experienced guides, with their in-depth understanding of the local marine ecosystems, will accompany you on these snorkeling adventures, providing insightful information and ensuring your safety throughout the journey. We take pride in curating personalized and tailored experiences, ensuring that each snorkeling excursion is a memorable and immersive encounter with the mesmerizing underwater world of Placencia.

Whether you are a seasoned snorkeler or a first-timer, our expertise and dedication to delivering top-notch snorkeling experiences in Placencia make us a trusted authority in the field. We invite you to explore the pristine waters, encounter diverse marine life, and create unforgettable memories with us as you dive into the beauty of Placencia’s snorkeling paradise.

the tour Company

Placencia Wildside Adventures, born out of the vision of a local resident, is a leading tour company in the area. Our focus is on providing exceptional snorkeling, diving, and fishing trips that showcase the natural beauty and wonders of Placencia. With a team of well-trained, friendly, and informative tour guides, we ensure that every moment of your adventure is filled with knowledge and enjoyment.

Heading our tour company is Conrad Villanueva Jr, a Guide and Captain whose passion for sharing his experiences stems from his upbringing as the son of a fisherman. As a 100% Belizean-owned and staffed operation, touring with us directly supports the local economy, contributing to the growth and well-being of the community.

Placencia Wildside Adventures was created to offer an alternative to the commercialized tour experiences often found in Placencia. We specialize in catering to small or private groups, ensuring a personalized and intimate atmosphere. While our shared tours accommodate a maximum of 20 passengers per boat, we are capable of accommodating private groups of up to 48 passengers. Our commitment to providing a personal touch stems from the years of experience Conrad and his crew gained while working with larger companies.

Our mission is to offer affordable private tours that are tailored to the unique needs of your group, whether it’s a romantic getaway, a family vacation, a friends’ retreat, or even a gathering of like-minded strangers. Despite being a young company, we prioritize safety and customer satisfaction, ensuring that your journey with us exceeds your expectations. Let us show you the very best of Belize.
