1. Diveshop- dive master(Mark) very good and responsible.
2. Package billing errors needing extensive rectification & negotiation when paying.
3. Dive charge- price per dive 30% more expensive than walk in option.
4. Airport Transport arrangement from Moalboal to Cebu Mactan airport - car driver irresponsible with 3x personal stops during return trip stopping by friends and at home. Traffic was heavy, asked to choose fastest route but did not. Car trip took 3 hrs more than the planned duration. Hairline miss to flight. Driver did not show any concern over passenger stress.
5. Diveshop’s recommended Tipolo hotel- 1st dive meeting time 7:15am, hotel kitchen not opened until 7am for our paid breakfast, so gotta defer breakfast.
6. Hotel Checkout time was agreed at 1pm, but buddy was chased out of room 1 hour earlier as cleaner needed to clean it before checkout.
Conclusion: only join Savedra for the drop in dives, accomodation/transport arrange otherwise.

My girlfriend and I completed our Advanced Open Water and Nitrox course here and cannot recommend it enough. The dive centre is well kept, the equipment is in fantastic condition, and it is in such a beautiful location along a stunning coral reef. Our instructor Koz, was incredible. She made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. She was made the theory portions engaging and easy to understand. On the dives she made us feel safe, competent, and was quick to point out interesting underwater life as it appeared. We would highly recommend this dive centre to anyone diving in the Moalboal area.

We had an amazing time while getting our open-water diver certificate at Savedra dive center in Moalboal. Beth was our instructor and we couldn't have wished for a better instructor! She was amazing! Everything was very well organized and I would 100% pick Savedra again.

Had a fantastic time completing my Open Water PADI course at Sevedra. Oscar was my instructor and he was a great, patient and friendly teacher! The staff were all super nice and willing to help. Would highly recommend this dive shop if you’re looking to complete your open water course or any other dive course!

Master Beth instructed me, patiently but insistently, to be sure that I had practiced and mastered the skills in fun way.
I highly recommend Master beth and her team. They are caring and passionate professionals that truly love teaching diving and helping their students achieve.

I would take another course from Master beth and savedra in a heartbeat

Great dive center all around for Moalboal.
Fantastic location. Shore dives straight out the door to the beach.
Good prices, and they will let you accumulate your dives and give you the best package (you don't have to commit to 5+ boat dives, but can save 5% if you end up going that much).
We did 8 dives over 3 days, all with one divemaster (JunJun, who was fantastic), which was nice to have the consistency.
All the DMs seemed to be great guides. And there were lots of options for single or double dives, shore or boat, and night, too. (The shore dive with the sardine ball is awesome.)
You will feel safe and comfortable diving with Savedra and will have a great experience.

Me and my boyfriend completed our PADI open water certification here and had an amazing experience!
I was extremely nervous & our instructor Phil was absolutely amazing, very patient and encouraging. Phil was an exceptional instructor and dealt with my nerves excellently, thanks to him I feel much more confident diving & have continued diving around the Philippines.

Our diving gear was all in good condition. Our dives were varied and fun, we really felt that we learn a load of new skills. Staff were excellent, really professional & fun!

100% recommend this dive centre!

I did my PADI open water course with Savedra dive center on the recommendation of forums on Facebook, they weren’t wrong. Very good team!
I have chosen Savedra especially because they offer course also in Spanish and because of its instructor OSCAR Pico! professional, highly experienced and he made me feel very safe all the time. Dive center & resort is super nice! Equipment well maintained and in good condition. Sardine dive was a unique experience and we saw also turtles & whale shark. 100% reccomend! Thank you guys!! :-)
