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 !

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.

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.

Not only is this rule followed, but more importantly our crew see the value in it, there is just too much... More
