The SI team are great. Very professional, great equipment and great staff. Prices are a bit high compared to some other local dive shops, but I suppose you pay for the extra service.

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).

Thanks Ashley for your comments. You are right, this is not the first time our crew have spoken about guests presuming none of them understand Spanish. And not the first time we have told our employees to hold their tongues. Many crew and guides work...More
