Alona Divers since 1996 dedicated in providing under water and diving experience. Located in the very heart of Alona beach, Panglao island is only a few dive shops that is fully owned, operated and managed by Filipinos with the heart of quality service and dedicated to safety and security.

These are met by our comfy diveboat (the newest and one of the biggest) which towers the shores of Alona beach. With 2 cabins and a roof deck for guests to enjoy the scenic view of the beach. Which includes dolphins watching, whale sharks, turtles on a good day if you are on your way to Balicasag Island and pamilacan island. Yes this dive boat can carry 30 divers at the same time and 80 tanks. Alona divers has 40 regulators and 45 bcd to ensure there are enough reserves and to completely address all safety and security concerns. See u.. joey and Tess

這是我們第一次在菲律賓潛水,由於之前參加過許多day tour,所以我會給5顆星給alona diver。第一個原因是,我可以在好幾天前就先從facebook這種網路方式來先跟老闆問好價錢,並預訂好行程,非常仔細跟透明的價格。並不是很多潛店都可以這樣,我找了很久。第二,裝備雖然不是每個人都是新的,但是都還是好的狀態,船也很大,不會坐的很痛苦。第三,老闆人很好,員工跟潛導也很幫忙,雖然我有AOW,但是潛導還是會一直檢查我們的狀態,也會主動把我的go pro拿來,幫我們拍照跟錄影及拍海龜等。 我們得到了很多珍貴照片,非常感謝他。雖然今天天氣不好,但是潛的很開心,也很放心,完全沒有有被坑錢或是被耍的感覺,來菲律賓旅遊很多次了,這個的確是令我驚喜。另外,時間也很準時開船,沒有等太久,一個潛導帶3個人,算小團。 我絕對會再推薦朋友來alona divers潛!謝謝老闆跟員工們。 This is our first time dive in Philippines. Given many past experience island tour, I would give 5 stars to Alona Divers. First of all, I get to book our plan ahead and have a clear explanation of...More

Expect 25-30 USD / dive, depends where you go. The nearby dives are cheaper than going to Balicasag islands (50 mn away). You should be able to negotiate a package discount if you dive for a few days.
