What a highlight! We had the perfect day diving - and a second that was second to none. My boyfriend got qualified by the outstanding, competent and strict (but oh so funny!) Matt, who is more German than we are;), and I got to see my first shark in 8 years of diving! We went to the Manta Cleaning station I to IV and had a majestic sighting of a Manta at I and two turtles at the second dive site. On day two at Sibaltan, the current was strong, but our guides showed us still astonishing big and tiny creatures. Lunch was daily served after our second dive on a remote beach (thanks to the chef for serving genuine Philippine dishes!) and I got to love the Ginger Tumeric Tea;) We highly recommend this relaxed, super professional and competent team! Thank you, Mo, for such a great experience!

I dived here for 1 day with the hope of seeing the majestical manta rays. The dive shop is very nice with lovely outside area and right on the beach. All the equipment were basically new and also maintained to a high standard. The dive shop team were friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable. Mo gave us a great insight into the manta rays before we even started our day. The first dive was on a beautiful reef with stunning variety or corals and fish all looking really healthy and diverse. Our second dive was looking for the mantas and luckily enough we were treated to 3 sightings towards the end of our dive. Patience paid off! The divemaster was excellent friendly and chatty, but always safe and aware of us. He gave good briefings and also pointed out lots of cool creatures underwater. (Sorry I forgot your name) I would highly recommend this dive shop and will definitely return myself.

We were the first group of people to stay in their huts at the resort and we would absolutely come back in a heartbeat. We stayed 4 nights and went on 6 dives. Although there were rains leading up to and during our stay, we were still able to see the manta rays and many black tipped reef sharks as well as a ton of nudi and endless coral and fish. Part of me did not want to write this review, only because I don't want Sibaltan to change or have a difficult time booking Dive Sibaltan in the future. The diving and resort staff are awesome, they have two adorable jack russell dogs (Mona and Pili) booking was easy, and the food - OH MY GOODNESS. Some of the best food I have ever had and they were accommodating for every dietary need. If you're lucky to book here and Rick is still the chef - be sure to stay on the premises and have as many meals here as possible. Unreal. He's a magician in the kitchen and you get to be his eager guinea pigs with his delicious creations. Last and certainly not least, Mo, one of the owners, was genuinely invested in making sure we were taken care of and having a good time. Whatever we needed, he was able to figure it out and help us, sometimes even going out of his way to show kindness and consideration. Once we knew we were moving to Thailand from the Philippines this summer, we knew our last vacation spot had to be Sibaltan and diving with the mantas with Dive Sibaltan. That being said, we will definitely be back soon.

Stayed 4 nights and did 6 dives and an island hopping tour with Dive Sibaltan in April 2022. I can not say enough about this place. It is the hidden gem of the Philippines. The staff was genuinely caring and attentive. The dive and boat staff were professional and friendly. The food by Rick at Roots Palawan Eco Farm was outstanding! Every meal was absolutely delicious. This place gets my highest of recommendations. We saw mantas and black-tipped reef sharks, endless healthy coral, and too many sea creatures to name. Every dive was amazing. Dive equipment was very well-maintained. The beach bungalows were new, clean, and comfortable. I almost want to keep this place a secret, but these guys deserve your business and will not disappoint. Forget El Nido and the crowds. Sibaltan is unforgettable. Go once and you will be back.
