We did two great dives with wreck bay diving at kicker rock. We saw more sharks on one dive than we had seen on all previous dives combined (and we have done more than 50 dives). the diving at kicker rock was great, and we also really appreciated that we received the go pro videos from the dives at the end of the day.

the only down side was that there was someone that was doing a trial dive in our group. in total we were 12 people and two dives, but because there was the trial dive person, and one guide cannot guide 11 people, we were one big group of 12 with the two guides, although the second guide was mostly occupied with this one trial dive person. we did not like being in a group of 11; the group was really too big. The guides did their best to satisfy everyone though, because one of them brought the people that ran out of air up to the surface and the other continued under water with the others. When the second guide came back, they did the same thing again, so the experienced divers could stay under longer. We did appreciate that approach, but would have liked a smaller group nonetheless.

Amazing dive shop, super easy to deal with! Very professional dive guides. I loved the fact that they spent time doing weight check before the dive in a quiet bay and made sure that those people who never dove Galapagos felt comfortable under water before they took us to Kicker Rock.The guys take their job seriously and really care about divers safety. All boat crew tried their best for us throughout the day. We also liked that after diving they took us to a beautiful beach to have lunch and there we had an hour or so to hang around and snorkel. Overall, great experience, highly recommend!

My wife and I went diving today with Jose & Ronnie and they were brilliant. We don't do too many dives and they really looked after us out in kicker rock. Visibility wasn't great, lots of sharks but no sign of hammerheads! A pod of dolphins breaching on the way out made up for it. Food was great too. Would definitely recommend these guys.

We booked a last minute dive with Wreck bay diving going to kickers rock. David was friendly at the phone and helpful with the prices. We booked a last minute day dive for 140 each including a stop at playa cerro brujo, lunch and pictures/videos from the dive.

All in all no problems and everything went about smoothly. They even did a check dive before the real ones which was nice. The dive it self was nice in form of fish and a lot of sharks but unfortunately no hammerhead sharks.

I was seriously cold coming out of the water and here I missed hot tea that we have gotten many other places. Lunch was also nice.

I found the group a bit large and I would have prefered a smaller group.
All in all good but I missed the tea and a smaller group would have been better.

Went with Wreck Bay Diving on consecutive days to Kicker Rock then Espanola. Very professional company with good guides and comfortable boat. As in all of Galapagos day trips the boats are not big and are somewhat at the mercy of the ocean conditions. Fortunately our journeys were comfortable. One of us scuba dived and one snorkeled at Kicker Rock. Did a quick check dive before getting to Kicker Rock. Had 2 fantastic dives/snorkels - clear water, multiple turtles, Galapagos sharks and eagle rays. Also saw hammerhead sharks (visible to both the snorkeling and diving group). Only drawback was that the water was quite cold. Finished off with lunch and a beach stop at Manglesito Beach where we saw yet more turtles when snorkeling off the beach.

The highlight of Espanola is the wildlife - beautiful albatrosses, as well as the endemic red-tinged marine iguanas, lava lizards and mockingbirds. The voyage there and back was comfortable. We were lucky to see a whale on the journey to Espanola. The captain stopped and followed it for 15mins so we saw it surface multiple times about 50m from the boat. Snorkeling at Gardner Bay was pretty - clear water, tropical fish and baby sea lions.

We were recommended Wreck Bay diving by local residents who have been on San Cristobal over 30 years and we would happily go with them again.
