Three of us did a discovery dive with Macarron (Juan-Carlos) at North Seymour early August, 2018. It was my first dive and the girls had one under their belt so it is fair to say we were absolute beginners. Our reservations were quickly put at...More

The stuff were professionals, everything went smooth. Angel was just great, gave us good tips and spoke English very well. I’m honestly recommend this agency with all my heart. Good vibes leads to a chance to see wonderful sea life!

Guides are good, lunch served after the day in a restaurant. Nice people, nice owner, stopped on the way back to see animals (whales, dolphins). Dived two days with them and all was perfect.

These guys are the ducks nuts. We got 4 incredible dives at a good price. The crew were helpful and efficient, but at the same time very chilled, but gave us plenty of info about the dives. They insisted on an 8m check dive to...More

We wanted to dive at Gordon Rocks, so we went there and at the beginning everything seemed fine. The reason why we choose the Macarron dive center were the good reviews online. Just that the shop offers land tours on its website, the woman in...More

Judith S
We will be coming to the Gallapagos next week. We are PADI certified divers. We have dived all over the world – Great Barrier Reef, Palau, Belize, etc. But we have not taken a dive trip for at least 5 years. We would like to dive the best places in the Gallapagos. I am concerned about the cold. (I wear a wetsuit in 70 degree Caribbean water.) I’m afraid the water might be too cold for me. But I would like to try diving to see if I can tolerate the water temperature. a) Do we need to take a refresher course to dive after such a long time? Do you offer one? What is the cost? Does that include all necessary gear? b) If we decide to dive, can you describe what your offering would be? What is the price? Does that include all necessary gear? Wetsuits? Dive computers? Thank you for your response.
