I did 10 dives with FKD around Malapascua. They use good equipment and are quite in the center of Malapascua. The first day they were very professional in checking certificates and everything according to standards. Also they were very friendly answering any questions regarding divesites, safety, accommodation options, health, prices, shopping and so on. Special thanks to Greg for introducing me at FKD. Usually they use their own smaller boats for dives around the island but work together with other companies for divesites like Monad or Gato. I did all dives with James S. which was the most experienced diver I met in my life and probably the reason for doing more dives with them. With several thousand dives around the Island he can show you everything you’re interested in - especially Makro but also all kind of living creatures around there he knows. Even pigmy seahorses or Fish with eggs in their mouth he showed... great diver with a good heart. Thank you James! FKD is a good option for all french speakers, but also good for anyone else. They work in a professional environment and care about their customers. Good experienced staff as well! Pro: - good Equipment - nice and professional staff - excellent Crew on the boats - outstanding DM James - nice bar on top of the shop Neutral: - higher prices but also good quality Negative: - no showers there - 2 times problems in the morning at 5 AM going to Monad. Both times we went but with delay (both times different technical issues which were solved the day after) - pretty unfriendly and rude Manager when I asked for discount All together a good choice going diving with FKD. Some places are cheaper though.

Response from fkdmalapascua, Owner at French Kiss Divers
Responded 12 Mar 2020
Thank you Luke for your comment! You're right, James is probably the best or one of the best of the island. I'm happy he's part of our team, our FKD buddha :D Greg is doing an excellent job also. The rest of your comment hasn't gone unnoticed. I don't think our price is really higher than other places when you calculate that the lunch is included for Gato and if you take a pack 5FD pr 10 FD. Indeed, we have a shower outside. We will have 2 showers inside and 3 outside in the new place. Monad departure is always challenging but I guess it's part of the beauty to encounter the majestic Thresher Sharks. Finally, I talk to the Manager and no excuses can justify being unfriendly and rude to you. I'm very sorry about it and please accept my sincere apologies. I won't let that happen twice. He told me you got 5% discount on a discounted package already, so he was right not to give any more discount but he could have told you in a gentle manner. Hope to see you again Luke. Chris

Awesome place to learn diving and explore! With my partner we have done the open water and the advance adventure there and it was a very good experience. The team is nice and very flexible if you need to change your date or a break between your lessons or divings. Our instructor Anne was pedagogue and patient, she makes our days 🙂 Thanks also at Greg for his help as advices! We recommend this place at 100%!

I did the open water course with French Kiss divers. They're a fantastic group of people who went out of their way to make the entire experience memorable. I had the option (with an extra cost) to do 2 dives on a day trip to Capitancillo Island. I would HIGHLY recommend this. If you're an experienced diver or a beginner like me, this trip was fantastic! - Amazing visibility and and an amazing place where we had a BBQ provided by the crew. Anne was a great teacher and I had her one on one for my whole course. They promise max 3 people in a group class but mostly one on one. She was very patient with me- takes a lot of patiences to teach me.. Thanks so much to everyone again!

I spent 1 week diving with FKD because they gave me more flexibility. Great dive shop, great crew to show me the most beautiful underwater of Malapascua. Liked so much FKD arranged group lunch for the day diving tour & arrange small group for diving. Great vibes!!! I am the only Asian guest during my visited with FKD. Although 99% guests are speaking French, I still enjoyable. Highly recommend FKD x
