My husband and I traveled to the Galapagos for my milestone birthday. Both of us were brand spanking new divers with a shiny new certification, and we were out for our first "real dives" outside of the certification. As our SSI training had just taught us, we had to be very cautious about who we dive with- we interviewed ALL the dive shops on the island before making the decision to dive with Macarron. We found him to be the most cautious and caring, listening to fears and concerns of the dive, and making sure we and our other divers were completely comfortable before we proceeded. He was also the ONLY dive master to tell us what dives were not safe for us as new divers and which he would not take us on. This ultimately made our decision as to which dive master to choose- the other shops never gave guidelines to our experience and which places they would take us- some offering for us to take our advanced course our first time out!
We were so happy we chose Macarron- we had a fabulous time! Safety checks, constant watching and checking in with us while under water, never swimming too fast we couldn't keep up. Within the first 5 minutes of our first dive we saw hammerheads, a school of over 50 eagle rays and later sea turtles and barracudas. We enjoyed ourselves so much we signed up for another day of diving! I would never hesitate to recommend Macarron as a dive master and instructor for a dive trip. As a former fisherman, he knows the waters, showed great respect to the wildlife and was 100% professional!
