The owners were happy to answer any questions, no matter how awkward and even check there TripAdvisor reviews there and then and then we were quickly fitted out in decent well fitting gear and ready to roll.

These guys were superb thoughout the 2 days we spent with them. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the boat was excellent. The dive supervisors were brilliant, providing clear instructions and keeping a good eye on everyone. We felt safe and really enjoyed the diving. Turtles, rays, sealions, sharks and sunfish were seen. The land excursions to the... More

We did two day trips with Wreck Bay to Kicker rock and Punta Pitt - both were fantastic. They provide all equipment and are extremely helpful in making sure everything fits well for you. We did a safety check dive before Kicker Rock to test all our equipment as well, and were given a proper briefing before each dive. The... More

Our most memorable and fun experience in the Galapagos was with this dive shop. On the boat were six scuba divers and roughly ten snorkelers. I dove while my girlfriend went snorkeling. On the way to Kicker rock we stopped in a shallow bay and checked our scuba gear was in order. Then the divers went for the first dive... More

I booked a trip with wreck bay thru email about a year before we arrived. We were traveling during Christmas and I wanted to make sure we could dive at Kicker Rock. They held my reservation for 10 people all year. They picked us up in 3 taxis and drove us to their shop to try on equipment the night... More

We did a tour to kicker rock through these guys and like many tour companies we were all funneled from multiple companies onto one boat. We paid $120 and felt the service didn't come close to the price. We were told the boat departed at 8:30, but it left at 9:30. Divers and snorkelers alternated from time on and off... More

Dear guest, thanks for your comment. I search about it and identify the source of the issue. We always operate our own customs with personal attention and using our own boat but this is just guarantee when you reserve in advanced trough booking by internet. This time you came into our shop with no reservation in advanced the day before.... More

We did two dives at Kicker Rock with them. Very good preparation and good equipement. The wetsuit was not very nice (although Scubapro, but just not fitting relaxed), and they kept searching to get a good one. In the end they borrowed one from another store (Cressi). The DM (Jens) was very nice, felt relaxed and we did everything in... More

We took quite a few tours in the galapagos but this was by far the best. The service on the boat was impeccable, both the guide and the crew showing great care for our wellbeing and comfort. The guide spoke perfect English and took us on a comprehensive tour of the fauna at kicker rock and on the beach at... More

Had a wonderful day diving with wreck diving at kicker rock! Everything was perfect. I got fitted the day before with 7mm wetsuit and all gear which was great (when I dove in Santa Cruz Seymour I only got given a 5mm and was freezing, plus they didn't give me a mask to try in advance so on the day...

We went on two great dives with Wreck Bay to Kicker Rock aka Leon Dormido. Their equipment was in good condition and the divemasters were really experienced local guys who clearly know this dive and the conditions well. I felt in good hands with them. Here are my minor gripes. First, they never checked our certification, which is fine for... More
