The staff was unreal patient and kind to our kids. They actually special ordered all new gear to fit their sizes! The staff is professional and safety is their first priority.

We visited in late September and had a great experience with Savedra. The staff was very helpful and accommodating - we stayed at a different resort, however, Savedra arranged a pickup/drop off ride every day. They also arranged for whale shark dives in Oslob, which was a highlight of our trip. The dives were similarly excellent and provided plenty of... More

My hotel Halle Manna recommended Savedra and Firas in particular. After asking about my dive experience (modest) and time since last dive (a year ago) they recommended a brief refresher before the dive. It was excellent. We covered setting up equipment and basics once hitting the water. Firas was, as promised, excellent. Unfortunately the dive wasn't great due to incoming... More
