I am so happy that I made the decision to change my flight in order to take the diving course with Jimbo and receive my PADI certification. Above water he is personable, friendly, and hilarious. Underwater he is attentive, clear in his instruction, committed to safety and wellbeing, patient, and truly eager to teach diving. He went above and beyond... More

Previous to arriving, everything I'd read about learning to dive in the Galapagos made it sound difficult due to the high chance of strong currents. However, after just one day of theory, I jumped in the water with Jimbo from Galapagos Underwater and I couldn't have felt safer or more at ease. Jimbo is a fantastic instructor. He's very patient,... More

I went to Galapagos Underwater to do my open water dives for certification and then do some more advanced dives. Jimbo, the owner and instructor, is a fantastic guide. He is very knowledgeable and very safety oriented. Of the places I dove with him, I liked the wall outside the harbor a lot and Kicker Rock was great. Jimbo knows... More

We did our dive review with Jimbo after several years of not diving... Everything went well, we had a nice experience. The equipment was nice and worked well. Jimbo cooperates with Galapagos Wreck Diving as well, and sometimes sends his clients on their trips...

I usually don't write very many reviews but I needed to write this one even though I am a little late in posting it. I went to the Galapagos in May and wanted to get my diving certificate so I contacted Jimbo after reading the great reviews here. I was absolutely terrified for my first few dives but Jimbo was...

I did my Open Water Course at Galapagos Underwater with Jose "Jimbo." Jimbo is incredibly knowledgable and experienced when it comes to scuba diving. He has a strong passion that really comes out when he is teaching. He makes sure that the diver is completley comfortable and confident before moving on to the next skill. Jimbo's methods are original and... More
