Safety, Highly Qualified Staff, and Location, Location, Location. Can't recommend this place any more. They have the single best location for FreeDiving in Bohol (and perhaps Asia). Highly professional and courteous staff, easily contactable and always willing to help... Great for ALL levels of FreeDiving...More

I have nothing but love for this center. Vincent and Sura really created a dive center that feels like a home away from home. I did my level 2, level 3, and my instructor course at this center over the course of a couple months...More
