Even though the weather conditions were not perfect, we still had two amazing dives with Lucas in around Monkey beach and Wreck point. The sea life underwater is amazing and Lucas is very professional. Highlights were the turtles, black octopus, colorful corals and the clownfish. Considering taking our advanced course here next time!

I've been coming to and from Sabang for almost 10 years now and I wouldn't think of going to another dive shop. Helpful, reliable, knowledgeable and their dive masters are great.

I was there now several times and always feel great with the dilligence, experience, customer orientation and friendlyness of the team. Even if the base itself is in a remote older building the quality of the equipment is very good and always dilliigently ckecked. They always dive in small groups (about 2 to 3 persons joined by one experienced guide) and help you to find species you look for (great for filmers and photoshooters). Also the pricing is significant low compared to other shops. I sent two beginners last year there to learn diving from the scratch and they are now fascinated divers after that. All your heavy equipment is carried to the boat and back, so easy living for you....

There are plenty of dive shops in Sabang to choose from. However after I found Mac's Octopus divers I don't have a reason to look any further. Many years of experience, friendly staff, very well maintained quality equipment and nice cold beer after all day diving is making my diving experience very pleasant every time I dive with them. They can also organise pickup from Manila as well as decent accommodation close to dive shop. Highly recommended!

Hey, it was easy to make friends with these guys. I gotta tell Ramon is a great guide, he finds everything you have to see in the water. Excellent trip to Verde Island, and the food was very nice. Thanks for making it easy and friendly.

Spent the holiday break over at Sabang Puerto Galera and booked Octopus Divers last minute. They accommodated our group professionally and patiently even if our resort was on the other side of Sabang Beach. Ramon (our DM) is an amazing spotter! He has been working with Octopus for 19 years and it's their experience and attention to our group that made our dives fun, organized and comfortable. Prices are all declared as all in and no additional hidden charges. Working with them is a breeze and they really adapt to the skill level of the divers. With unpredictable currents in Puerto Galera, you'd definitely want an operator that knows where to go and what to do unlike the other relatively new dive resorts just out to make a buck by taking divers down and out of the water as quick as possible.

I have been diving with Octopus Divers for many years and have done my courses through Dive Master with them. Sure, I have tried other dive shops in Sabang in the past, but the experience of the staff and their attentive service at Octopus Divers has kept me coming back and I won't dive with anyone else in Sabang.

I went here speculatively and learned to dive. Went back for my advanced diver and rescue diving qualifications. I found the place quiet, relaxed and very friendly. (This was back in 2000 !)

I was introduced to this shop by a friend and I can't say enough good things about it. It's a small shop, set back from the beach, but very easy to get to, and Mac (owner) has a stall on the beachfront. Prices are reasonable, the equipment is all very good, and if you want to do a class, you are guaranteed a small (if not individual) class size. I did my Advanced Open Water here for a very good price, and my instructor Walter was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and helpful.

The local guides, Ramon and Lucas, one of which will go with you on every dive, are both great. They know everything about all the great dive sites in Sabang.

The shop caters to a German-speaking clientele (the website is in German first and then English), but don't let that dissuade you, it's for everyone!! No German knowledge is necessary to enjoy diving with Octopus. :-)
