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.

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!

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!

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
