      Awesome!
      I did the open water course with my friend and we had a great time. The whole Watercolors team, especially our instructor Darwin, was so amazing! He was really helpful, patient and cheering instructor. Overall the course was super fun and an awesome experience.

      Excellent Diving Experience
      Took the Open Diver's License with Jimmy. He was a extremely helpful and instructive teacher/instructor. Funny and humorous guy that is very knowledgeable about diving. Definitely will come back to Watercolors to do my Advanced Open Water License.

      Friendly, Relaxing and Worth a Visit!
      Cannot comment on the diving experience, as we did not do that. What I can say is that Martin and Ethel made us feel very welcome when we happened upon their establishment on New Year’s Eve. We stayed for drinks and had a great conversation with Martin. It’s a clean, well-appointed place with the nicest staff with the biggest smiles! The menu was carefully explained to us and is all available on your phone via a QR code. It even detects what table you are sitting at! We returned on New Year’s Day for lunch and was impressed that the staff remembered us and that the owners remembered our names as well, a nice touch! The menu is varied and our choices were delicious. They cater for Western palates as well as Filipinos. It’s a quiet venue in Station One, which is nice as you can escape the busyness of the rest of the beach. We will be making several more visits during our time on the island and would recommend a visit if you’re passing. Even if you’re not passing, find them out and spend a few hours there, you will not be disappointed.

      Great Place to get your certification
      I came in for a fun dive but ended up doing the Advance course with Jimmy. Corals were amazing and the wreck dive was very cool. Jimmy made the process very easy

      Great instructor and amazing dive shop!
      We had a great experience with dive instructor Jimmy. Jimmy was very friendly, responsible and patient with teaching. He always made sure we were okay underwater. We even decided to do the Advanced Open Water course immediately after the Open Water course. Very friendly and helpful staff at dive shop too. Definitely recommend dive shop and instructor.

      5/5 Experience. Go WaterColours!
      A fantastic experience as a Beginner with Jimmy and the entire WaterColours team. We booked open water course and ended up staying on to complete the Advanced course owing to his clear, structured and coherent instruction and guidance. Highly recommend for beginners to intermediate with a high variety of dive sites and good visibility. 5/5 experience. All the best, Jordan

      Loved our first dive
      Very friendly from beginning to end. I am diabetic and Jimmy didn't want to risk it - so I had to go to the doctor to have clearance. That was a very good sign. Videos are informative, and all the staff are very attentive. We definitely had fun!

      We had 2 great fun dives guided by Darwin. Due to strong winds we dove at the side of Bulabog beach. Bulabog reef was in good condition.

      Awesome diving and dining!
      What an amazing place! They treated us like family; very much appreciated their friendliness and hospitality. Great Filipino food and drinks. Special kudos to Rolly, Mitchie, and Avel. Best diving experience I’ve had, I even convinced my fiancée to try the discover scuba course. Jeni is a fantastic instructor and dive leader and Lyn was very prompt at responding to questions and scheduling dives. I cannot recommend this place enough, they are all so friendly, happy, and cater to everyone’s needs.

    Cannot thank our dive master Sandra, and photographer (/second instructor) Jenny enough for a fabulous experience. From the very beginning we were made to feel welcome and at home at Watercolours. It was a 15 minute stroll along the beach from station 2! The information given was easy to understand for beginners (as we both were) and super informative re the equipment, what to expect and safety measures. We were a couple and had an instructor with just ourselves, also as a tip they can provide photos and video at a cost, but again pictures were great and Jenny was also an instructor so basically we had an instructor each!!!! Cannot praise the whole process of the experience from booking, to communication and actual dive enough!!! Highly recommend!!!! 5*s.

    I had the luxury of having Jimmy take me and my partner out on my first ever scuba dive! As someone who can barely swim, i was initially quite worried but through the initial course briefing, shallow dive testing and the actual dive, Jimmy made me feel very safe the entire
    time! He answered all the questions I had and gave so many great tips - he was very charismatic, funny and overall a fantastic instructor and i couldn’t have asked for someone better. Would defiantly recommend this experience as you get so see and experience the amazing under water life of the boracay waters

    We went to Boracay for my son’s 14th birthday. Before our trip, I’ve booked for a scuba experience for us and candidly informed it’s my son’s birthday on our scheduled scuba class. Ms. Jenny, our dive instructor is superb! An absolute pro. The course includes a PADI lecture, with Ms. Jenny teaching all the basics, initially on land and on shallow waters. After which, we dived and were able to showcase what we’ve learned. Her knowledge, support and guidance underwater made us feel safe and made the experience truly enjoyable. We visited the coral gardens of Boracay, found Nemo and a whole lot of colorful fishes and corals! What touched us the most is she had a surprise underwater birthday cake for my son!! All the while, we thought the bag she was carrying underwater contains dive equipment..but lo and behold! It was a homemade birthday cake made of recycle materials and plastic fruits! What a very personal experience.. and we truly, truly appreciate it. Thank you so much, Ms. Jenny and Watercolors! We’ll be back, for sure!

    Sir Jim and Sir Thomas were both very professional and knowledgable instructors. During the pre-diving exercises, they made sure that I am comfortable in everything I do as a first timer in scuba diving. I was scared to do it in the beginning but after a couple briefing and safety practices I felt safe because of the professionalism of the instructors. Couple tips for people who will book WaterColors in the future: make sure to scroll and read all the way down their instructions before going because there has been a lot of instances where people go to their old location which is at Station 3, but they have already transferred in Station 1.

    I am writing on behalf of my bf, A. as he believes this scuba dive center deserves a nice Review. Staff were really accomodating and kind, paid attention to safety and gave useful info before the dive. A. took 2 advanced dives which he both enjoyed. The beautiful coral reefs and wonderful creatures under the water were amazing. After the dive, his dive Master, Bo, sent him the pictures which you can see in my post. A. highly recommends this dive center and will surely come back. I on the other hand would love to try for beginners next time.☺️🤪

    Bo and Joanne was excellent instructor. We had so much fun and feel safe at the same time. We went on two dives in one day, Friday's rock and Angol dive site. We love Angol as it was not so deep but a lot to see and the current was mild. Highly recommend WaterColors !

    JENNY IS THE BEST INSTRUCTOR!!!! Even during the briefing part, she was already so fun to be with and what I appreciate about her is she was very thorough and specific with her instructions. She knows that even we’re newbies and quite nervous, she always believed in our capabilities which ultimately led to us not giving up and seeing the wonders underwater. Such a magnificient sight to see!! 🐟🐠

    I’m super glad that Jenny was with us all throughout because she prioritizes safety and it’s very evident that she’s knowledgeable in her craft so whatever happens or whatever question you have, she knows what say/do.

    Thank you Jenny and hope to see you again soon when we come back! 🧡
