This was the absolute worst diving experience I have ever had; the boat was over 50 years old and as a sail boat will never sail again. It can only cruise at about 5 knots now. They don't have a generator hooked to the engine, so they run a loud outdoor generator to power the boat. So annoying. The deck... More

We had made our first dives here with the team. The staff was very professional, kind, fun. As this was our first times, i had no other comparaison to confront. The places where we dove were very nice (mosquera, daphne minor, north seymour). Jesus and Marco were very nice, we had really enjoyed our dives with them. Highly recommended !

Excellent scuba diving experience! Good equipment, expert dive master Marcos, good spots (Seymour North, Mosquera and Daphne Minor islands). We encountered lots of sharks, hammer sharks, tortoises, rays, and other species! 2 dives per day for two days!

Hello: I check the records, and very probably you was the girl (with your boyfriend) asking for a very easy first dive because you feel unsure. When divers come to us asking for advice, and say their last dive was time ago, or that they are not very sure to go with the experienced divers for any reason, then: We... More

This was a discovery dive for me, as it was my first time diving and I am not licensed. I had a fantastic experience. Marco, who both runs the agency and is one of the dive instructors, did a great job walking me through the process before we left. Nauti did a great job managing the entire group I went... More

I was booked in to do a scuba review since I hadn't been diving for a couple of years. It seemed legit until we came on board and my "review" seemed to be watching the discovery scuba video... However I had read up before going to Galapagos and felt pretty confident so I joined the dive. The feeling on the... More

First it started without checking any license or filling out any Padi papers (the once you normally sign before you go diving) Then we drove to the harbour where we had to wait for about 2 hours before the boat came.

Dear Mirjam: Galapagos is not a place for all divers. Only divers that can manage different situations fully enjoy all dives. Sometimes, the ocean conditions are not easy, with waves and some currents.
