Went to Moalboal to visit friends who were living there, and planned to do one or two dives. Instead, I went on 8 dives with savedra's great staff. Great group of people, and great experience. Especially enjoyed working with Herman!

This was our first time diving in Moalboal and Savedra came recommended. The set-up is well run and while they catered to many groups of divers during our stay, it never felt too crowded. Benjim and Jaime are both excellent guides.

Hi, I'd just like to know if the contact info on your website is still valid? I have left two e-mails and an sms over the past three weeks without any responses. I'm trying to set up a my holiday with some Tec courses included, so I want to be sure there will be a course available during my time there. 04/08 - 20/08. I have already made my hotel bookings near to Savedra. I am currently in China, so phoning or skyping aren't easily available. info at savedra. Is this still correct? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Martin
