Ecuador is one of the best locations for diving in all of South America, especially with diving points such as Galapagos and Isla de la Plata "The Poor Man's Galapagos". First question we ask when wanting to go diving is, have you ever been diving before and do you have a license? We can get you certified and get you in the water ASAP.
So why get your PADI certification in Montanita?
In Montanita you have the opportunity to obtain you PADI license at 50% the cost less than in Galapagos. Most people decide to get there license in Montanita to save time and money before there trip to Galapagos. To become PADI certified we need you complete name, passport number, and Emergency contact information, we have you sign a medical waiver and then we begin the course. Our coursee are usually four-days long and include exams, theory, practice two dives and some of th ebest dive masters in Ecuador.
GoMontanita take you just south 30 minutes to a small port village called Ayangue, where we get on board the boat with our captain, skipper and Dive Master. From there we set off to El Pelado, where we do two dives with two tanks. In between dives the dive master passes out fruit and water for the famished, then when everyones done diving, we cruise back to Ayuange where we get back in the car back to Montanita.
