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!

All of the dive masters on my fun dives were good, and the guys on the boats were very helpful. The ladies running the office were helpful getting me signed up to all the dives I wanted to do, and helping... More

When seeking training as a technical diver it's very important who you chose as you instructor. I have had the privilege to train with both very competent instructors and less suitable instructors, and have learned lessons from them all (there's a lot to learn from the latter too, if you can identify the faults) Lee Butler however clearly stands out...

Got my OWD here in October. I was a tough student to teach but Firas was persistent and patient and did not give up on me. He actually split up the three of us who were in the class together to take us on separate dives as we were all struggling with different things. He makes sure you are taught... More

This is the perfect place to start your scuba diving journey! We went for 4 days and therefore didn't have the time for the full Padi open water course. Instead we took half of the course, and it was amazing and addictive from the very first dive! And most importantly we felt so safe and comfortable with our instructor Martin.... More
