In a three day dive bootcamp, Simon, Rene, and the divemasters transformed us from fish out of water competent newbies. Having certified, the next day was a trip to observe... More

Just spent 3 days with Simon and Rene learning to do something I've been wanting to do for years but shied away from as I thought I'd have ear problems. They were awesome. Had such an enjoyable time. Relaxed, informal atmosphere helped to dispel my fears. Teaching and learning were patient when I needed that but moved forward quickly when... More

It's totally great, with the cheapest you can find diving shop in the Philippines, with the accommodation package on it. It's great, i will do my advance water here hopefully soon, such a great way to learn proper diving and the theories are carried properly.

The person who drove us to the whale watching place was very kind and even locked his van doors when we arrived so our valuables were safe. He managed to guide us through the process of whale watching and... More
