Fantastic experience - all internet arrangements worked perfectly ; dive operations were world class; dive masters and boat crews hugely professional - and Mother Nature kicked in with an unexpected whale shark encounter!

I had not been diving in over 20 years so I wanted to pick the best dive shop on the island for safety, good equipment, and experience with diving in the area. I chose the right place, Scuba Iguana, with help from the local whom we were staying with and from reading the reviews. We had a group of experienced... More

We did three one-day dive trips with Scuba Iguana in March 2016 & they were brilliant. Their commitment to safety was really impressive & very professional. The dive masters were really good communicators & also lovely people - very friendly & helpful. Skippers & deck hands were also terrific. The ratio was 1 DM to 4 divers. The DMs moved... More

I would recommend this shop to anyone that wants to dive in Galapagos. They have you come in a day early just to be prepared for your dive, so there is no time wasted on the day of the dive. I dove at Gordon Rocks which was amazing there is so much life in this area that to see all... More

We had a wonderful experience with Scuba Iguana. The guides were excellent and were very experienced. Our dive master took pictures and videos of our dives and we had some excellent and memorable pics. The Hotel Mainao they booked for us was also very quaint and friendly. Also the land tours were very informative and fun. We would recommend starting... More

My girlfriend and I had an excellent experience at this dive shop. I planned in advance to propose to my girlfriend Kathy while diving and informed both Sebastian and Paulo who helped immensely in allowing me to do this even down to finding an empty shell which Paulo placed the ring in so as i could present it to Kathryn...

I went for a 3-day diving trip with Scuba Iguana in Galapagos and the experience was awesome. The dive guide and boat crew were all very helpful and friendly. I felt very safe diving with them and would definitely recommend this dive shop to anyone diving in Galapagos

The staff is calm, friendly and provide an abundance of care. They did a good job pairing divers in the small groups (4 per guide), and with the pre-dive overview. Couldn't ask for any better guides than Sebastian and Paulo. Their dive schedule is set in advance for all dive shops, which prevents multiple groups from showing up at one... More

Me and my GF are both inexperienced divers (I had had 12 dives, and she had had 7 dives). As such, safety, and that a dive master has control over the situation, is of adamant importance to us. We went diving the day before with Albatros Diving and felt very well taken care of, with dive masters in total control... More

Scubaiguana I, Owner at Scuba Iguana, responded to this review

There are a lot of moving parts in this review. Rira0677 is a lawyer. He attempted to sign his girlfriend's release form, which we did not accept, as the release is not a mere formality. There is a lot of legaleze, but it is the diver's statement that diving can be risky and that as an adventurer the participant understands... More

Great dive operation, hardest working dive crew I've ever seen. Sebastian and David were excellent dive masters and Erika in the office was so helpful. We did the 6 day extreme package with diving, mountain biking, and sea kayaking. They took care of us from the time we landed in Baltra till the time we took off from Baltra. Great... More
