Fantastic experience with Rogel, Alfred and James! These guys were on it. Great training, guidance and then review and critique. I’m definitely going to take several more courses from these guys. Highly recommend them!

Put our children 14 and 12 through a PADI refresher course. Communication before the course was excellent, communicating with Simon who was in the UK FOR Christmas. Course was very thorough and very reasonable. The kids were stoked as they saw two turtles, two lion fish and a tonne of other sea life while doing the course (just a walk away from the dive centre) Alfred and his mate James (a friend brought in by Alfred due to pretty rough seas) This meant they had one to one help. Service was awesome and with a full on Philippine smile. It’s always nerve wracking handing your kids over to a dive instructor but listening to the pre-dive briefing and seeing the way they were with the kids gave us great confidence. No hesitation in recommending SiDive to anyone.

SIDIVE in Mactan, Cebu, is a standout diving center that has left an indelible mark on my diving experiences. Operated by the amiable Englishman Simon and local dive masters Alfred and Roger, it exudes expertise and professionalism. The shore dive experience offered by Sidive is nothing short of amazing and incredible. The patience and dedication exhibited by both Alfred and Roger, the local dive masters instill a sense of safety and security for every dive, creating an unforgettable underwater journey.

Furthermore, the well-maintained diving gear and comfortable wetsuits contribute to the overall positive experience, enhancing comfort and allowing divers to focus on the marvels beneath the waves. SIDIVE is highly recommended for both new divers and experienced enthusiasts seeking to explore the captivating underwater world of Mactan, Cebu. The blend of professionalism, safety, and a passion for diving makes Sidive a must-visit destination for anyone eager to delve into the sea's depths and enjoy an exceptional diving experience."

We had the most incredible experience with SiDiving!! Earl, Elvin, James, Alfred, and Kyle were absolutely incredible is helping us achieve our dream of PADI certification. They were calm, patient, professional, experienced, and simply amazing! Our instructors Earl and James took the time to make us feel safe and comfortable throughout the entire 2 days. We couldn’t be more appreciative of these instructors! They’re expertise in diving is impeccable; as it’s generational (Their fathers were divers and now their kids are learning the way) . Highly recommend this Sidiving center.

Husband and I got open water diver certificate here. Knowledgable staff, beautiful underwater views. Lots of fish. They will literally support you through every step of your learning and diving. I enjoyed every moment here. Sad to say goodbye to the crew. Will always be back to dive with them.

Had a great experience with Sidive! From all the quick informative messages between the owner Simon to the PADI EFR + Rescue Course with Tony (Allan) and then some shore dives with Alfred. Equipment was in good condition. Can’t recommend them more. The sardines on the house reef are amazing too!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Open Water Diver training offered by SIDive. The instructors are friendly and welcoming, very patient, very knowledgeable, and focused on what you need to know to stay safe when diving. The training exceeded my expectations.

We had an amazing time getting our open water certification with SiDive, the only problem is we now have the diving bug from it so we are going back for our advanced open water as well as doing a few fun dives with them!
