This was a discovery dive for me, as it was my first time diving and I am not licensed. I had a fantastic experience. Marco, who both runs the agency and is one of the dive instructors, did a great job walking me through the process before we left. Nauti did a great job managing the entire group I went... More

I was booked in to do a scuba review since I hadn't been diving for a couple of years. It seemed legit until we came on board and my "review" seemed to be watching the discovery scuba video... However I had read up before going to Galapagos and felt pretty confident so I joined the dive. The feeling on the... More

I booked a trip at Nauti Diving in Puerto Ayora, Galapagos islands and had the best dive in my life. I was very nervous because of the strong currants but MARCO, my dive instructor, did a great job to motivate me and help me to get used to this difficult conditions. It was really had to dive - I am... More

First it started without checking any license or filling out any Padi papers (the once you normally sign before you go diving) Then we drove to the harbour where we had to wait for about 2 hours before the boat came. First dive: pretty big waves, we had to fall backwards from the dingy, we asked the dive master if... More

Nautilus G, Director of Sales at Nauti Diving Galapagos, responded to this review

Dear Mirjam: Galapagos is not a place for all divers. Only divers that can manage different situations fully enjoy all dives. Sometimes, the ocean conditions are not easy, with waves and some currents. The report of the guides and crew said: “the passenger said someone other’s tank go over her head, and she returned to dinghy. She has not any... More

We went out with this company a couple times while in Puerto Ayora and were happy with the whole experience. Your experience includes a drive across the island to the Baltra harbour where you hop on a sail boat, and the sailboat drives you to the site you will dive. We dove at Daphne Minor and Seymour, both of which... More

The dive site was perfect with mola molas and lots of hammerhead sharks. the safetystop was made in a circle of 5 and... More

I dove with Nauti twice to Gordon's Rock and had a great time. The price was impossible to beat, Marco, was professional, safe, and attentive, the equipment reliable, and the boat is spacious and comfortable (much better than being crammed in a speed boat). Side note... We had engine trouble with the zodiacs one day and couldn't do our second... More
