      Unprofessional Transfer causing risk to my health and personal belongings!
      My day started with a scuba diving session, but there were delays due to a malfunctioning engine on the small boat that shuttles us to the main vessel. Despite a 15-minute wait for repairs, the issue persisted. Eventually, instead of resolving the problem, the company resorted to using a kayak, which proved to be both unprofessional and dangerous. The kayak capsized due to small waves, causing damage to our equipment and posing a safety risk to all on board. Despite voicing my concerns to the manager, there was no satisfactory response. Considering the high prices charged by the company, this level of irresponsibility is unacceptable. Therefore, I can only rate my experience with one star.

      Great hospitality and amazing experience.
      Three days of diving at Submariner Diving Center was an amazing experience. We were transported to the dive sites in a comfortable boat with great views. The divemaster EL FIVE's humor and careful guiding made the diving fun and relaxing. SAMMY and the owner MARK were always friendly and attentive to details. I look forward to going back to El Nido and seeing everyone again. Thank you. 3日間ダイビングをしましたが、快適な船でダイブサイトへ移動し、ダイブマスターEL FIVEの丁寧なガイドで安心して楽しめました。 SammyとオーナーのMarkもいつもフレンドリーで色んなケアをしてくれました。 またエルニドに行った時は、皆に会いにいきたいと思います。

      4 days Fun Dives, An unforgettable experience! Shoutout to Divemaster Ronnel!!!
      Great view, great staff, great place in general. Very attentive to your every need both while staying at The Beach House connected to the diving center and during diving trips. The manager Sami takes care of you the second you arrive, and makes sure everything is in order with your diving certification and other formalities before you go in the water. Dove with Divemaster Ronnel three days out of the four. Great guy! Makes you laugh and you feel totally comfortable with him while diving because he keeps cheking in and makes sure you dont drift off😂 The dormrooms at The Beach House are nice to, really spacious and well working air condition. Only thing is the lack of room for your luggage. Make sure you bring a lock for you suitcase and/or other because it has to be placed outside the dorm. Highly recommend this place for your next diving experience in El Nido! I’ll be back for sure

      A dive tour like your family
      The staffs were very helpful and friendly. I took a one-day refresher trip with Divemaster Fet (I hope I spelled it correctly) and the team. I love the active atmosphere on the boat. I just learned OW at the end of 2019, and then it was Covid. So I was super nervous at the beginning and thought about quitting. I did not finish the exercises as I was supposed to at the first dive; I was too scared. However, my divemaster was patient enough and took me to see some nice views easily. After the first dive, I was able to finish the exercises at the second dive at the beginning and enjoy the rest of the trip. Thanks to Fet and the team, I felt confident again under the water. El Nido is amazing. The view was so nice, and it was easy to see some cute turtles. I would definitely recommend this journey to anyone encountered. Lunch was also good by the way.

      Divemaster course - great Dive Center and lovely people
      I went from being an Open Water diver to becoming a Divemaster with Submariner and I think that I picked a really good place to do that! Mainly because of the kindness and professionalism of the staff, which became my family there. That includes the dive crew, the boat crew, the hostel crew etc. It was both a thrilling, amazing and challenging experience! I learnt a lot and became very comfortable underwater! Adam was my instructor and I want to thank him sincerely for teaching me and supporting me throughout the whole process! I also want to direct a special thanks for Samy. I am happy with my choice to do the Divemaster course with Submariner and I will definitely go back one day!

      Great dive shop!
      Great dive shop in El Nido! They offer 2 or 3 boat dives. You are on the same boat whether you choose the 2 or 3 dive option. You swim to/from the boat from the beach or wait for a kayak to take you. Small groups with each DM and plenty of space on the boat. They choose the dive sites that day based on conditions and weather. I did 3 days of diving with Peter, 9 dives total, and he was great at finding lots of little tiny critters to point out. I’d definitely dive with them again!

      Amazing dive shop and staff wouldn’t go anywhere else
      I have just finished 4 days of fun diving with Submariner. We did 3 dives a day and couldn’t fault anything . My DM Peter was the best, he is very knowledgeable of the sites and patiently waited for me to take 100s of photo every dive pointing out everything we wanted to see ‘especially all the tiny midis’. The boat and equipment were also very good quality, the team on the boat were very helpful with equipment. Lunch was provided and you got to choose from a menu the day before, plus fruit provided after the first dive. El Nido has plenty of dive sites to explore with great reef and swim thoughs, plenty of fish, corals,turtles and all the small things you could imagine. Wouldn’t choose any other shop to dive with and would definitely come back!

      Amazing Diving Experience
      What an amazing experience at the Submariner Diving Center. The whole staff was super friendly and professional. It was my first time diving, and I felt very safe and comfortable. We saw some incredible marine life. My instructor Ajey also took some amazing shots. Finally, the food they served on the boat was delicious. I definitely recommend the Submariner Diving Center to anyone visiting El Nido!

      Always Win, Never lose.
      We did our open water PADI certificate with Win (Windel). We had an incredible experience from start to finish. Win was an amazing instructor; so patient and committed - without him I would not have completed the course (as I had a fear of diving). Win really helped calm my mind and fall in love with diving. Amazing dive centre, who brought us to some beautiful dive locations and created a a very fun, safe and relaxed environment.

      Best Diving Experience of My Life!
      Submariner Diving Center is the best dive shop and dive team I have ever experienced. I have been diving for almost 20 years all around the world, and this is by far the best diving experience I have ever had! I was welcomed by the manager Sammy the moment I walked into the shop. Sammy asked me about my dive experience and what I was looking for, within a few minutes he scheduled me for 3 fun dives with a group of other advanced divers for the next morning. Not only was this some of the best diving of my life, in one of the most beautiful places in the world, but the whole dive operation was so well run! From the moment we got on the boat and had our introduction from the crew, it was apparent that safety was a TOP priority. There were several different groups of divers on the boat with different levels of experience, and we were all paired with a different dive master. The ratio of divers to dive masters was the best ive ever seen and the entire crew was just delightful to hang with. My dive master El Five quickly became my friend and we had 6 incredible dives together over the two days I was there. The dive masters go out of their way to point out different things underwater and also constantly do safety and air checks, which all divers should appreciate. This dive operation is like one big family, all the dive masters have been working there for several years and their camaraderie is just so enjoyable, I didnt want to leave! If you have a chance, do the tunnel dive…one of the best dives of my life, hands down! Thank you Sammy, Eddy, El Five, Win and the whole crew for bringing me into your family and showing such amazing hospitality. I am forever grateful and I will be back!

      Best diving center in El Nido
      I dived with Submariner Diving Center in February/March 2023. I did my Rescue Diver and my Divemaster Course there (around 130 dives in total) and can only recommend this Dive Center to everyone! I learnt so much and had a really great time with amazing people. Thank you guys so much for guiding me on my way to become a professional diver! I will definitely come back as a guest or even to work with you. After seeing a lot of dive sites and dive centers as a recreational diver before, I cannot mention enough how professional, friendly and hospitable everyone is. Boat crew, divemasters, instructors and not to forget the secretary and the management. Dive sites and marine life are very diverse and safety is always first. Special thanks to my both Instructors Eddy and Adam!

      Can’t thank you enough for a wonderful experience for my family from NZ 2 Adults 11,14,17. A few months earlier I booked and had so many Questions that were answered promptly by Samy. My husband was sick a few days earlier and it was no problem to change dates.Absolutely an amazing team from Submariner from the helpful boat crew, cooks, reception staff and esp Eddie and Abel. Lunch was delish on the boat too. Thank you for starting our new obsession and creating a memory from El Nido we’ll never forget. Know your getting an awesome service booking here. You won’t regret it

    Joined their first Seafari trip after the pandemic by Submariner Dive Centre after 3 years. As we have not been diving for 3 years due to the pandemic, our first dive was the refresher course and our dive master, Ronald, was very patient in explaining all the basics to us. My husband and I were able to gain our confidence quite easily and we continued with our first fun dive.

    The Seafari trip from El Nido to Coron was full of fun and laughter. The whole crew were so helpful in making sure that everything is smooth, safe , fun and enjoyable and most important, the 3 dive masters, Don, JoJo and Ronald really took care of us very well.

    Food on board the boat, 3 meals a day, were so good and we were never hungry.
    On the last night, we had a great BBQ dinner by the chef and everyone really enjoyed very much.

    Special thanks to our dive master, Ronald who really took care of us. Also thanks to Don & Jo Jo who also went to great length to help us whenever we needed help.

    Would highly recommend Submariner Dive Center if anyone were to go to El Nido for diving.

    We had a really great day’s diving with Submariner. A great set up and felt very well looked after. JoJo was our fantastic dive master - really knowledge and just a really nice guy. We were lucky we were in a smaller boat so hit our 3 dives in even though the weather turned. Lunch was delicious too!
    There is lots if choice for diving in El Nido but we were really delighted we chose Submariner and would highly recommend.

    We were happy with our choice and did an open water scuba diver course. Our instructor, AJ, was fun and a good teacher. The boat and generally the equipment were excellent. Generally there is a relaxed but professional atmosphere. We had to do a bit of studying in addition to the practice diving, which however was interesting and not too difficult once you have been underwater and experienced it first-hand. This was our first scuba diving experience and we have been very satisfied. It looks like the best option in El Nido after competing it with others on offer

    We did three ‘fun’ dives (I.e. one trip) with Submariner. Highly recommend for their professionalism, service and how fun the staff was! We really appreciated that we got a dive instructor just for the two of us, as we are relatively inexperienced divers. Our dive instructor - El Five - was very helpful and thorough in providing pre-dive briefings, particularly the recap of all the different handsigns for different types of fish. The boat was spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend diving with Submariner if you’re in El Nido!

    Really amazing experience, great diving school! My last dive was years ago and I felt little nervous, so I did the refresher at first. My dive master Freddy was super friendly and encouraging, and he taught and instructed me clearly.

    All the other staff members were also super nice and I had such great time! Everything on the boat was really well organizated, equipments were good, lunch was delicious and I felt safe all the time. Just perfect, choose this school when diving in El Nido!

    I’ve been doing some diving in other countries some years ago. And I had to do a refresher course before starting my fun dives. We have an expression in danish saying: “It’s just like riding your bike” which means everything you’ve learned will come back to you quickly and easily. Which it did.

    I felt safe from the moment Samy emailed me with concerns about taking a flight right after our last dive. And when we were greeted by him at the diving center. My experience and expectations didn’t change. He really made us feel welcome, and would always check up on us after a day of diving. And with four full days back to back, that says a lot. He would also ask us about special diving preferences and places to see, which enhanced the experience.

    During the three dives a day I had the pleasure of having Ronnel as my dive master. With him you will always feel safe. He’s amazing at checking up on you both above and below water. We did a dive and stay and every morning at breakfast Ronnel would come over with diving shoes in our size and check in ahead of time. Approximately 45 minutes ahead. And he’s always ready with some banter and jokes to make the day even better. You can tell he has a good relationship with both the other dive masters/instructors and the boat crew. I would definitely recommend and dive with him again.

    There are of course multiple dive masters, instructors and other people worth mentioning, who was always ready to make us laugh and feel part of the family. Some are AJ, Eddie, Jojo, Anto, Kevin, Win, the boat crew of explorer 1 and I could go on.

    Submariner have different divesites which fits you level of experience, and they are willing to do everything so you can do maybe a tunnel dive as the first dive and then dive with your buddy who’s OW. I’m very grateful for them for giving me some of my best dives to this date.

    We also had the pleasure of meeting and talking with the owner Mark. Which was an experience that match everything else we’ve felt during these days. He made us laugh and gave us a sense of even more security, if that’s even possible, which was the dot over the i on an amazing trip.

    Thank you♥️

    These guys are literally the best scuba company we have been with. We only started a few months back but have been to a number of different places throughout Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. They look after you and ensure your experience is as smooth sailing as possible. Our Dive Master, Errol was an absolute legend. Extremely professional with a perfect balance of being hilarious and passionate about what he does. The entire crew and other dive masters/instructors were also extremely welcoming and friendly. If you are in El Nido, make sure to book with these guys. You won't be dissapointed. Happy Dives.

    Best dive centre in El nido!! I had 9 dives with them and the underwater world was always surprising. If you are diving more than one day they would try their best to arrange new dive sites for every day :D The crew and dive master are professional and helpful. The boat was the best one in el nido, spacious and well equipped. Wish to come back to more!!:)

    Couldn’t recommend these guys more. Did a 1 day/ three dives trip with them and had a brilliant time. Safety felt the upmost importance both before and during the dives. Ronnel was such a great dive master, checking on us regularly and ensuring we didn’t miss any of the amazing fish and turtles!!
