First time scuba diving for me and my wife. They took us to 2 great spots where we could practice the basic diving skills and still see a lot of sea animals. The instructors were there if you needed them, but also let us try to manage our own equipment autonomously when we got a little more proficient. Overall a great experience! :)

Great diving spot with a lot of sharks, namely hammerheads. A lot of different rays and very interesting topography of the location. The dive shop was very well organized with great guides and well maintained equipment. Nothing negative to add. Highly recommended.

It was amazing, the scuba instructors were the best! All the equipment they gave us was in perfect conditions. I strongly recommend them!

Eagle Ray tours were fabulous. My partner and I had 2 days diving with them at North Seymour and Gordon Rocks. My partner was an experienced diver and I was completing my qualifying 2 days Open Water dives. They did really well to meet both of our needs. The crew are really helpful & friendly, the kit great, English was easily spoken, the other people (about 6) on the boat were good company and we were very well looked after. Plus it was great to get videos/ photos of our dives afterwards. I'd highly recommend
By Nicola W for PADI OPEN WATER COURSE AND 2 DAYS OF DIVING on Aug 29, 2023
Did 3 days of 2 tank morning dives with Alvaro and Eagle Ray divers in August 2023. 5mm wetsuits, all rental scuba gear and dive boat were fine. Gordon Rocks: deep dive (30m), not great visibility on our dives (10m), but saw schooling hammerheads (50-100), turtles, white tip/black tip/Galapagos sharks. Gordon Rocks sire in an old caldera with some strong currents and very choppy waters, consider sea sickness meds. Daphne Minor: better visibility (15m+) calmer conditions than Gordon Rocks, many closeup passes by mantas, swimming through bait ball of 100s of black/white striped fish, buzzing sea lions, a few white tips sharks, one of the most magical dives I've ever done (2000+ dives). North Seymour/Mosquera: decent vis (15m+), lots of white tips,, Galapagos shark, garden eels. OK dive but not nearly as memorable or interesting as Gordon Rocks or Daphne Minor. Eagle Ray operation is great. All dives start from north end of Santa Cruz island. A taxi picks you up from your Puerto Ayora accommodations and takes you to/from Baltra ferry dock (taxi included in dive price). Alvaro (owner/dive master) is great at finding critters and films everything with a GoPro so you have videos/photos of your dive (bring an SD card or USB transfer cable for your phone). Boat operations are very efficient, they get you in/out of the water quickly. In between dive snack of pastries/bread, fruit, and hot drinks. We had larger chaotic surface chop at Gordon Rocks (0.5-1 m) so it was interesting getting back on the boat. Due to the currents, depth and surface chop, I would not recommend a Gordon Rocks dive for beginning divers.
