Just to keep it simple. Decent diving school. Gear is good. Price / Quality is good. One shore dive cost me 1400 PHP. Sardine run is awesome! Would recommend it. -SK No practical notes.

During our 2 and a half weeks stay, we experienced an excellent dive center. The dives were very nice and the guides very professional. We learned a lot at our deep dive specials with Tim. Like other guests, we will come again.

I did my EFR, rescue diver and Nitrox courses at Savedra. Firas was my instructor for all of them and went a Nitrox diving with him as well. Before starting the courses, he explained very clearly what I would learn, what skills I would get and how much they would cost, which helped me a lot. In the EFR and... More

Hi Yukky That is the perfect impression of a Rescue course, hard work, and a lot of fun. It sounds like you definitely got your moneys worth there, I hope you feel confident enough to take charge if ever a rescue diver is needed. Thanks for choosing us, and for leaving your review here, both are very much appreciated. Lee More

Best place to dive with the sardine!! Since the sardines are in front of the shop the dives are cheaper than in other shop because it can be a shore dive! Very professional instructors!

Very professional, we did our booking with Firas. We did our divers review and boat dives, and Firas helped us in our hotel's check in and transportation to every single detail. We were very happy with the dive shop, clean, wonderful staff and well maintained equipment, we had so much fun. We are defiantly visiting again and we would recommend... More

Savedra was super professional, fun place to dive. There are several dive destinations within a short boat drive, and there is also a house reef. Instructors and staff were super professional and friendly. The best place in Moalboal!
