It was our first time diving, so we were unsure what to expect, but our instructor Gary was brilliant at teaching us and being patient with us while we learnt. We had a great time talking to him after the dives too, he showed us all the different... More

We took our PADI License in this Resort and everything was perfect. They are adaptable to your needs, always respond with a smile. Specially Stefan, our instructor. He has made anything for helping us on getting the PADI license quick and safe. Now we will enjoy the sea thanks to them!

Moalboal is a great destination for diving, and this school is great for newer to advanced divers! Stefan took me on my first deep dive and my first night dive,... More

We didn't exactly avail of the services of the dive shop but had a particularly different experience with them instead. Like any tourist in Panagsama, we went island hopping and really enjoyed the Pescador Island, even saw a turtle and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. So much so, that while snorkeling, my half Japanese cousin's GoPro strap broke off and the... More

Equipment is in good condition, boat crew is professional. No idea what their courses are like, but I may be back in July to do my... More

We went snorkeling with them on two trips. One to a nearby location via boat 2 minutes away and one via boat to Pescador Island. They are very accommodating and the prices are fair. To rent snorkel equipment (Snorkel/mask, flippers, and boots) was 500php for the day. We didn't do diving with them, but we liked our experience snorkeling and... More
