Fantastic dive company! I have been diving around the world since I got my OWD in Egypt 2009 and these guys are one of the best! They did predives with people that needed to and we felt very safe.

It seems that negative reviews for this company really depend on the crew you have on board for your dive. I am an experienced diver with around 70 dives under my weight-belt. I did two days of diving - Gordon Rocks and North Seymour. (Booked separately) Both days I had the same crew, Juan (the owner) and Richard who as... More

My boyfriend and I went diving at Seymore Norte and had an amazing experience there. He was doing his first discovery dive and got perfect instructions. Not too much, not confusing and still with the right amount of fun and jokes. I have the open water license but haven't been diving in two years. Great instructions for refreshing the skills...

I'll start with tips, needs improvement and good parts. I speak from experience of multiple dives with them. Tips for you: book in person. You will receive a competitive deal vs. not in person. There are at least several other [good] operators who can as well. Especially if you are planning multiple dives; not only will your base price be... More

We went diving at Gordon Rocks with this company. The instructors were really nice, the gear good and the price OK. The biggest problem for us was that they completely skipped the buddy check. One of the girls didn't have her BC connected to the air and the other time the air was not turned on. Luckily she quickly checked... More

This was the best dive ever!! The crew, equipment, atmosphere and service is really nice! After our really bad experience with Nauti dive and their really bad servic, Macarron was so good and felt so secure. The day before diving we fitted wetsuits and bcd's with our dive instructor Jonathan. Jonathan thinks a 'fine' wetsuit is not good enough, it... More

Visited the Galapagos to go surfing and do pick up my PADI qualification, something I had wanted to do for a number of years. The Galapagos is the place to be! Getting to the Galapagos isn't cheap, the flights from Ecuador aren't cheap, and then you need to pay the national park entrance fee (USD$100 when I visited). BUT when... More

While arriving in Santa Cruz, with 2 of my friends we wanted to dive but weren't sure where and with whom. We've been through most of the dive shops of Puerto Ayora and we found Macarron as being very professional, reliable and super friendly.
