If you are serious about learning to dive you came to the right place. The best bla bla is PADI and we are the only recognized PADI dive center in Montanita and Ecuador (other than Galapagos islands). We brought diving to Montanita after working and exploring the underwater world in many regions around the world.
We fell in love with the island of "El Pelado", We call little Galapagos. Around the island you can find variety of rich marine life like mantas, turtles, sea lions and whales. You will discover amaizing underwater formations and reef around the bottom of the island and when surfacing you see the local blue footed blue boobie birds.
We have been teaching diving in Montanita since year 2000 and we have been involved with the local fisherman and comunities to preserve and the management of the "El Pelado" island and coastal area.
