A small shop with good personal attention. Paul does great under water videos especially with the scooter my favorite. you can go through 3 dive sites with one tank and not worry about currents. He then adds music to the video. going back for the 4th time soon

Thanks for a great dive. Paul was an excellent instructor and took great care of my fiancé during her DSD. It was just the 3 of us for the dive.

Boutique dive shop with nice, friendly people, good equipment and good boat. Unfortunately we didn’t dive with them a lot, have to leave in Anilao. But in case if we stay, I guess we will have good time with them. We like a lot the owner; he is European guy, very honest and open. Coming to the office, you feel... More

We just finished 9 days of diving with South Sea in Sabang Beach. We did 22 dives at various sites from 30m (100 ft) to 10m (30 ft). We saw turtles, frog fish, cuttlefish, mantis shrimp, eels, sea snakes and hundreds of varieties of fish. South Sea divemasters know the sites and go at a nice relaxed pace. The reefs... More

The dive center is pretty small. If you dive with the group there are at least 6 divers per guide. Be sure to make good agreements : they changed our rates 3 times and I am sure we overpaid.

I was very hesitant to try diving, being afraid of swimming in the ocean but Skye and the team made me feel so comfortable and it was clear safety was their top priority. I did the discovery dive and we went 5 meters and the next day we went out again and went 7 meters. It was an amazing experience... More

We travelled with a group of 13, half of which were divers, some beginners and others very experienced, and the rest of us just wanting to do some snorkelling. We enjoyed the first trip so much we ended up doing three trips. Staff were super friendly and we really enjoyed the hospitality shown to our group.
