The staff were superb - from looking after our bags while we indulged in a live-aboard, to excellent briefings, good equipment and putting together all the kit. All we had to do was put on our masks, the rest was Butler treatment! Good, safe dives.

I would definitely recommend scuba iguana. Gears/equipments/guidance/certification - very thorough and professional. If you are on at least 10 day vacation to galapagos(it's a must), you can book your diving with scuba iguana on premise instead of online(former works out economical).

What is the going rate for day dive trips in December? Is there a difference in price if you book in advance versus on site when you arrive? Thank you in advance for answering.
