We did our padi open water course at Savedra with instructor Jason! All the equipment is very professional and the staff is really friendly! Jason is very passionate about diving and loves it to teach you with a lot of fun, really professional and very safe! Highly recommend Jason if you have the chance!

The name I could recall, our dive masters. Perhaps beyond my expectation, but I feel greatly safe to dive with them. There are 10 of us, we did 12 dives inclusive diving at the Oslob. I recognised this an upper class dive centre at least to me. I was way impressed, everything was Organised and informed. No doubt Moal Boal... More

The best dive center I've ever been so far. On the people: Very friendly and professional. I really like how the company runs, if you pay close attention to the Savedra team, they have designated people assigned to specific roles (and in color coded uniforms!) ie. reception, DMs, instructors, admin, crew...etc. I find that super organized and professional. Unlike other... More

We only dived with these guys for 1 day but were treated really well and had no complaints about anything. I would dive with them again.

I'm there currently... Done three dives... Will be doing another dive in forty five minutes to Pescador island. Very professional in their set up.. The correct place to visit if you want to dive in Moal Boal. I'd rate their staff as five star.. Extremely experienced.

Savedra is all you would ask for a diving center, they take great care of you and of their equipment. I passed my open water certification with them, it was super nice and I feel like I learnt all I need to feel comfortable under the water.
