This must be the best dive center in Galapagos, with a 20ft deep training pool and on site hyperbaric chamber it is very impressive. Great dive tours to all the hot spots around Santa Cruz and Isabella

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.
