I completed my Open Water licence with Jimbo from Galapagos Underwater and it couldn't have been a better experience. I was a little unsure about learning to dive in the Galapagos because everything I'd previously read said that it was not a great place for beginners due to strong currents. However, after just one day of theory, I was 5m underwater learning all the necessary skills and I couldn't have felt more at ease or been in safer hands. Jimbo is a fantastic instructor. He's very patient, explains everything clearly in fluent English and is constantly aware of your safety, all with a permanent smile and a great sense of humour. The equipment was in great condition and Jimbo is very thorough when it comes to teaching you how everything is to be used.

I've since dived with a number of other companies throughout the Galapagos and Ecuador and none compare to his level of service and professionalism. His agency is the best for scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands and I could not recommend him more highly. Thanks for everything, Jimbo :)

I arrived to the Galapagos, one of the best places for diving, without an Open Water license and without any experience. I was lucky to meet Jimbo, a local dive instructor from St. Cristobal, Galapagos. He took me last minute and we started tomorrow. I wanted to finish it as soon as possible to start the "real diving". He is flexible, he is cool, he is always up for everything, but ONLY when everything is finished. He said "I will give you the license only when I think you are ready!". I was glad to have a professional instructor like him. I finished it in 5 days, and all the dives were great. You get around 7 dives, with a wreck dive and a night dive, so you are on the way to an advanced diver already. I had the privilege to have also Gary Brown (dive master) to accompany me on the dives. So I had two diving instructors only for myself. The price is good (I had two instructors for myself), security is on the max, you get nice dives, a PADI certificate, nice memories and a few new friends! :)

We had one of the best dives ever. Jose loves his job and he knows what he is doing. He is a very experienced dive master, always calm and cheerful. Briefing, equipment and dive for Kicker Rock (San Cristobal) were excellent!

We swam with turtles, white tip sharks, galapagos shark and a HUGE school of fishes. Sea lions are always there, of course! Too bad the hammerheads didn't show up that day... nature is whimsical.

I totally recommend Galapagos Underwater if you are visiting San Cristobal.
