Today, on January 5, 2024, around 5:45 pm, we had the most bizarre interaction at Bohol Divers Club Dive Center.

We came in because of all the good reviews but the way we were treated was disrespectful and uncalled for. We simply came in to inquire if we could join a dive on Sunday to snorkel.

The employee, a Filipino man, started rambling incoherently and aggressively. He kept saying, "you don’t care about us, we don’t care about you," even though we had never talked to him before, seen him before, let alone dived with them. He was rambling on and on and talking in circles, even pointing his finger in my face.

The entire time we had barely even said a word, we were just confused at what was happening. His eyes looked bloodshot, and I’m assuming he could have been under the influence.

Also the pricing for snorkeling was ridiculous – ₽4200 for two people at Balicasag. Doesn’t matter if you have your own equipment. The lack of basic respect was just too much. We’ve decided to go with Philippine Divers instead were it’s ₽1800 and we were treated with decency.

I do not recommend Bohol Divers Club Dive Center.

First time diving and we repeat!
It was an amazing experience. We have no time to take the padi open water so we did a discovering scuba diving.

Thank you Ernesto for your time and lessons. We were so confortable the whole time. And we repeat the day after with Ernesto too.

Salamat po.

All the staff are super friendly. And they speak Spanish!

I recently completely my PADI open water certification at Bohol Divers Club and I can’t recommend them, or David, any more! I had never dived before and didn’t really have any intention of going as I was a bit nervous around the whole thing, but with some persuasion from a friend, I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. David was brilliant - reassuring, knowledgeable and calm. Safety felt their first priority and I never once felt anything but looked after. The ‘classroom’ element of the Open Water certification with David was really helpful and helped to reaffirm the teaching given on the PADI app. Speaking with others it doesn’t seem this in person classroom part is available at other dive centres, but I think for first timers like myself, it was integral to my comfort and safety in the water.

The dive sites are absolutely amazing, both the closer coral wall and the slightly further Balicasag! We saw so many fish, some turtles and a school of barracudas.

All round amazing experience, thank you guys! Hopefully I’ll be back one day!

I've been diving for over 15 years, while my husband only recently received his Open Water Diver certification. However, we were both completely captivated! We had 7 dives, and it was a magical experience.

Dive spots: Balicasag Island, Pamilacan Island, and a night dive at the house reef near the dive shop.

We saw: 12 sea turtles (!!), 4 enormous Arothrons (Puffer fish), Chinese trumpetfish, numerous Chromodoris elisabethina, a group of Platax teira, many lionfish; and many other fascinating marine creatures during these dives.

Exceptional service: The level of service provided was truly outstanding. They took care of all our equipment, assembling and disassembling the gear, and even replacing the tanks after each dive. Of course, they were always on hand to assist us with getting in and out of the water. Overall, they handled the equipment breakdown and rinsing, leaving us with nothing but the enjoyment of our dives.

Dive guides: Often surprised us with unique experiences. One dive, the guide suggested we swim in the blue sea, away from the reef. We soon found ourselves surrounded by a huge cluster of fish. It was truly a breathtaking sight!

We had a few brilliant experiences with Bohol Divers Club. Our Dive Master Medi and Dive Master in Training Millie were excellent. We felt safe and really appreciated the care and attention they put into the dive briefings as well as ensuring the perfect fit of our dive gear. We also appreciated how genuinely passionate they both were for the reef environment, taking lots of effort to point out beautiful animals, fish and coral. We dived Alona House Reef and Kalipayan - both stunning even after torrential rain the night before. Can’t recommend this enough as a must do for divers visiting Panglao.

A fantastic dive operation right on Alona Beach. Medi and Millie were excellent dive instructors and we felt very safe. Great dive briefing and they both took the extra time to show us beautiful and unusual animals on the reef. The house reefs they took us to for the fun dives were incredible. Highly recommend!

It was just amazing!
Very welcoming center; Vanessa received me with open arms and explained to me everything I needed to know very clear.
Then, I had the best instructor ever, Ernesto!!! I feel really lucky.
To do my Open water certification with them definitely made my trip to the Philippines. It wouldn’t have been the same without such an experience. And the experience was a 10 thanks to them.
So I 100% recommend the place.
