My first dive experience, of which I was not trained well. The dive master (I shall not name names) who decided to accompany me on my first dive was inappropriate with his hands. I was groped, and fondled in my groin area and buttocks. I began to panic and needed to be returned to the boat as I had no... More

Jack N, Owner at Scuba Iguana, responded to this review

I am an owner of Scuba Iguana, but I was not with the boat or passengers the day Robin136 describes. I rely on statements from my office help, crew and Instructors for my interpretation. Robin136 states that she was not trained well for this, her first dive. The Discovery Dive program is of course simplified, done according to PADI standards.... More

We dived with scuba iguana on 8th July. Our instructor David was brilliant, we are newly qualified and I was very nervous of the conditions but he really looked after me so well. We were a group of 10 split by instructor and we were given the choice when low on air (told to signal under water) whether we were... More

The dive guides and masters and Scuba Iguana were entirely professional and skilled. They provided the safest and most exciting day under the sea. The dive was jam packed with exciting things to see and lots of really great information. It was the highlight of my dives.

I had a great time diving with Scuba Iguana! The staff is very friendly and professional, equipment is new and price is very good for Galapagos. I did two great dives with them, in Mosquera and Daphne Minor. I totally recommend Scuba Iguana!

Overall organization of 2 dives day trip was OK, equipment good, but compared to the prices with competitors, I was expecting higher value. Tour was delayed quite significant, route changed and no information on this was shared.

I went to Scuba iguana because people told me they were the best. I dove two days with them and one day with another company because they were full on my third day to dive. They blew the other company away in every way. Quike and Sebastian, were such great instructors! I finished my open water dive vert with them... More

Nothing fishy about this place. My partner and I are both experienced divers with one of us being a dive master. The level of professionalism is not something you see every day and certainly not what we saw from some of the other dive shops here. The entire operation is extremely professional with top gear, top guides and top dive... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Scuba iguana. The whole experience was well organised and professional from the fitting of the kit. The pre and post dive briefs. The level of organisation on the boat The proficiency and friendliness of the dive instructors. The small size groups. Thankyou to Quike and team!

I went for a dive with the Scuba Iguanas - superb. Upon booking I could take my time to find a fitting wetsuit (at 5 or 7mm you want them to fit), the equipment was good quality and in great shape, the dive masters spoke great English and cared about their group, lunch was excellent. Highly recommended.
