Not only was everything very super easy to set up, but the staff was super helpful and giving advice on what to do around Alona Beach.

I was there twice last year and had a very good time. Very good staff and management, well organised briefings, comfortable boats and top diving. Green fin logo which is very important for me and they do really their best to protect the reef and organise several time a clean up. Els Belgium

The books and videos were very understandable, the diving gear in great shape, the classroom comfortable, and the pacing of the modules just right. Everything was organized very well. As for Marleen, we all loved her! She was gentle and clear in... More

My girlfriend and I never got our Open Water certifications in Thailand; we heard so many good things about the Philippines we decided to wait, and it was so worth it. Unlike schools that send 7-10 people in one class, Seaquest usually has about three to four students in one class (ours was three, with one girl that decided to... More

Superb diving off of Balicasag Island with Seaquest. Accommodated us perfectly with private boat, good quality equipment, super nice and friendly dive master. Countless turtles, school of jack fish, beautiful corals. And the sun made it a perfect day out. Thank you again Ben and the whole team at Seaquest. We will be back again.
