I have been having problems with diving recently, at no fault of the dive centers, just my own, this center was nothing but helpful and accommodating when I was feeling uncomfortable. They shared a lot of information with me and made me feel safe when I was worried. A couple of my friends also chose to get their open water... More

Recently I went on the six day Dive Safari with two of my dive buddies from USA. It was absolutely fantastic. We really had a great time... good food... boat's crew took very good care of us. Everything went smoothly with no downside what-so-ever. I really appreciated Divemaster Beth who made sure our dives were enjoyable... her professionalism and fun... More

even though diving conditions were not too good in late january 2017, we had a very nice experience with the team of Cebu Fun Divers. The good mix of local and international dive-masters, instructors (e.g. Rene and Hermann, for those who speak German), and very helpful boatsmen, attrackt experienced divers from all over the world - rightly so !

I was diving several times before all across the world without having a licence. Now I finally did my PADI Open Water Diver (+Advanced) with Phil, a great instructor from UK. The course was perfect, Phil didn't just push us through it but made sure that everyone learned a lot and is now able to dive on it's own (although... More

I had a blast diving with Savedra when I was in Moalboal! I did two dives, in Pescador Island and also at the coast, seeing the impressive Sardine Run. The dives were great, they are very experienced, it´s a 5 Stars Padi Dive Center. We even managed to see a shark! I definitely recommend to dive with Savedra if you... More

Did four dives with Savedra - 3 boat dives and 1 shore - all amazing. The shore dive itself to see the sardines was very impressive. Also did the night dive at Pescador Island. However, the briefing was not as professionally done as other dive places (can't compare within Moalboal though). The DMs also did not really point out much... More

Hi Alienshu thanks for your comments, I appreciate the time taken to share them. This review had me a bit perplexed, it has long been our policy that no divers are allowed to ascend without a DSMB above them. Not only is this rule followed, but more importantly our crew see the value in it, there is just too much... More
