Johno was exactly the type of dive instructor that I was looking for. He is patient, laid-back, super knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable, and is flexible. He was quick with communication before hand and even helped provide transfer information from Manila as our flight got in at 1210 am (strange timing). The inclusive package was one of the most affordable... More

We booked an advanced open water dive package which was advertised on the diveVIP website. It wasn't until we arrived in Sabang and went to Papa Fred's Steakhouse that we discovered that there was no 'diveVIP' resort or accommodation. We called John, he was out of town the day we arrived and he told us we were staying at Captain... More

The staff is very professional and serious when it comes to diving, but they are also really enjoying to share their passion. I made my Open water and advanced for a very good price which included also accommodations. And every dive was really worth it, not only for learning the skills but also because of the corals/wrecks/billion of fish/turtles that... More

I recently went to Sabang with a friend to go diving. I showed up at 1:30 to arrange for my dives the next day. I was told by the lady at the shop to come back the next day at 10:00 for the 10:30 dive. We happened to show up at 9:45 and were told by the same girl that... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and laid out your concern, though you did not dive with us. However, the changes in diving schedules were made a day before, where your friend, as well as the other divers have been advised. They agreed to move the dives to 9:00am, and 12:00nn, as some of...

I dived there in march 2014. 3 days and 3 different divings. The 2 first times, I was alone with the dive master, a really nice guy. It was really surprising as dives are probably the cheapest in this place, and it is well organized. For the last dive, more people were there, probably 5 or 6 of us, and... More
