My wife, son (age 26) and I dived with Scuba Iguana for four days in early
December 2011. The operation is very well run: good gear, good safety
instruction, knowledgeable dive masters, thorough briefs before each dive,
good boats and the dive masters are also excellent photographers and take
pictures videos of each dive which you can view and purchase afterward for
only $25. It is the souvenir of a lifetime. Boat tours are two dives a day,
usually leaving at 7:30 am and returning at 4pm. Boat provides a snack and
hot tea after the first dive and a hot lunch and juice after the second
dive. The pelagics and fish life were fantastic: Manta rays, eagle rays,
hammerheads, Galapagos and white-tipped reef sharks, green sea tortoises
and barracuda. Water visibility varied between 30 to 70 feet. Water temp
was cold, about 60 degrees and we used 7 mm wetsuits. Dive masters were
good guides and pointed out marine life that we would have missed like
scorpionfish and moray eels.
