Savedra dive shop was great. Clean, and well maintained. The staff all speak amazing English and are very helpful and informative. The equipment was great and well functioning. The sardine run is as amazing as everyone says, just do it. From the dive shop you can walk into the ocean with your equipment and do a shore dive to the... More

Perfect dive centre to go diving in Moalboal: they have good equipment a clean, spacious diving base and super friendly guides where we felt safe all the time. Even though my partner only did the discover scuba dive and never dived before it was a great experience and we felt super safe and comfortable during our two dives. Also they... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights staying at the Savedra Beach Bungalows and two days diving with Savedra Dive Centre - all organised through the very helpful people at the dive centre. The accomodation was very good, and so close to the dive centre made the stay very easy. The diving was great - amenities at the dive centre... More

We are diving with Savedra once a year since 2010 and we will surely continue to do so in the future. The organisation of our booking by Rose and Janice was just as perfect as the dives, adjusted personally to our preferences by Louie. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the whole dives center is very helpful to meet your personal... More

I carried our a beach clean up activity on Sept 10th with the crew from this dive shop. They were amazing to deal with. They have a commitment to the environment and the community in Moalboal that goes way beyond the diving. Great bunch of guys, and a few girls, hilarious, yet willing to get stuck in and get the...

Extremely kind and friendly staff and very professional. My own regulator began to leak, but the faulty o ring was changed between dives without charge. I had 9 dives there, most of them with the local divemasteren Beth, who is a master of spotting clownfish. Savedra is definitely a place I want to come back to.

I hadn't been diving for eight years. The staff did an excellent job with a refresher dive and took great care of me on my other dives. We did a skills review at the shop then in the water followed by a short reef dive. It was perfect. If you haven't been in a while this is a great place... More
