A divemaster with a criminal attitude.
His dive computer failed and went to a max depth of 45 meters instead of 25 meters.
Decompression stop for all divers, divemaster go to the surface and doesn't matter...

After 5 days with Justice and Scuba ventures I decided to extend my stay in Dumaguete to add some more dives .
I will have so many things to show on my youtube videos .
Highly recommended by a video enthusiast and SSI course director...

My girlfriend and I came to Dumaguete City to get open water certified and after a little research came across scuba ventures dive shop. I emailed them and sent a Facebook message on Sunday trying to get something setup for us to start the course on Monday and got a rapid response. The shop manager said we could start first thing Monday morning and at $14000 pesos it was the best price we had found in town for a 3 day course which was also important to us because we were on a time crunch. Monday morning we started at 8am with one of the owners and dive instructors Mr Snoopy. He was great from the start and the class was literally just my girlfriend and I which made it like a private course. Once in the water and their private dive training pool in town snoopy made us feel so comfortable setting up the equipment and using it all properly in the pool. We then went to open water in Dauin and an employee named Justice joined us. The 4 of us got along so well and the course flew by! In 3 days we were open water certified and even booked a trip to Apo Island with them for 3 fun dives which is a whole other story. I would recommend these Dumaguete dive legends to anyone lookin to get certified in the Philippines or even just to book dives. Thanks Scuba Ventures!!

We had such a good time learning with scuba ventures, we'd all really recommend them to anyone. John took his time with each of us, but made sure we had fun too

If you decide to go with these guys make sure you ask for Bebot the dive master
He is an amazing dive master
Also book the two days for all the locations - you can do without the sharks
You will love it
Just remember what country you are in and adjust your expectations accordingly
You will have to walk in the water to get to the boat
Take some snacks + water
Don't forget to tip the dive master - between 10-15% of the cost of your day
500 peso is a good tip

In November me and my sister went to scuba ventures for our PADI Open Water Diver course and we had a great time! What we really liked was that there were only 3 people in total in the group and that John (dive instructor) and Richie (dive master) really paid attention and wanted to make sure that we felt save and comfortabel. After the dive course we went with them to APO Island and had 2 amazing dives over there as well! I would really recommend Scuba Ventures, they're cheap, good and I think they are one of the dive centers who pay the most attention to safety!

We travelled with 18 members of the family that took us to Apo Island both snorkels and divers. The trip made it more memorable and stress free with the professional help of Scuba Ventures. From the preparation to the execution, all services were managed smoothly. John, Richie and KF, all dive masters, made sure everyone had an extraordinary day. Very impressive indeed.

If you want to take the PADI OWD course (or for already certified divers looking for a dive shop) I would HIGHLY recommend Scuba Ventures in Dumaguete!

All the staff were very professional and friendly. The instructors were patient and created a positive learning environment.
They were flexible with the in class schedule, and helped accommodate our tight traveling schedule.
After we finished the course and got our certifications we arranged 2 more dives with them. The trip was with some very experienced divers (each with 50+ dives) so we were a little nervous. Scuba ventures arranged for us to have a separate dive master, the same one that was helping out during part of our training. As a new diver, I really appreciated the efforts to help us feel comfortable and confident on our first officially certified dives!

What I appreciated most was the down to earth, personal approach. It is a family run business centered around their love for diving. They really make everyone feel included and welcome!

Really love the service provided by Scuba Ventures staff. Was supposed to go snorkeling with another dive school but ended up with Scuba Ventures cause there was not enough people with the other dive school. End up we had the best experience with Scuba Ventures in Dumaguete. Did 2 dives with them at Apo Island. Richie and John were really nice and professional. They helped us to settle all the diving equipment and everything, and allow us to just enjoy our dives.

At the end of our trip, after they dropped us at our hotel, we realised that we left a personal Rashguard on the boat. the staff at Scuba Ventures helped us to contact the boatman to retrieve it ! Even though it was a little troublesome, they even offer to help us mail it back to Singapore. Good job Scuba Ventures ! would love to dive with you all again !
