I cannot say enough positive things about Academy Bay Divers staff and Alice. Alice goes out of her way to assist/help in any way. Their dive boat is a roomy and fitted for divers, and very comfortable. On the boat the dive masters help the divers gear up and put your fins on. I would dive with Academy Bay again. They are the best dive shop in Puerto Ayora Santa Cruz. Kudos to Alice for helping make our trip a great memory. Ralph and Lisa

I can't say enough about Alice and Academy Bay Diving. This was a fairly complicated trip to organize with 12 people coming from 4 different US cities over the course of 2 days with travel delays. The itinerary Alice suggested for scuba and land tours was ideal to see a wide range of wildlife in a busy, but well managed schedule. The guides she appointed were excellent and the dive leaders were outstanding. The logistics were flawless from start to finish. From the moment we arrived we had a guide to get us to each and every activity including to and from the airport. Taxis or buses were waiting for us at our doorstep for each tour, and Alice herself met us at different points along the way to make sure we checked in at the hotel, to point us in the right direction at the pier or make sure we knew what was coming next. It was a situation where I didn't have to worry about not being familiar with the local customs or requirements because Alice or someone she chose was there to help every step of the way without feeling herded from one stop to the next. There was plenty of free time to do what we pleased and explore the town, but the guides showed up exactly when we needed them. Academy Bay made this trip feel simple with the flawless logistics and outstanding guidance.

Alice had everything planned for us to a tee from the moment we stepped off the plane and it was wonderful! The dive masters and crew had everything organized and ran all six days of diving like a finely tuned machine. They even rinsed and dried the scuba equipment we brought with us. I would definitely dive with them again and I highly recommend them to anyone!
