Miss Ve, Jojo and Karla are great dive professionals. Thanks for your arrangement and your companionship. Miss Ve is a very beautiful dive instructor and she speaks very clear English. It's just easy to catch up with what she says. Jojo is excellent in doing underwater photography and a big-eye spotter, and I enjoyed the night dive with him. Karla is a lovely warm lady and she is willing to help whenever you need... I do think about returning to dive here again! By the way, please please please get the air-con changed and the shower hopes to be made stronger!!! A strong shower ends a day of diving perfectly. Felino, thanks for your breakfast prepared for me at 02:30.

Great introduction to diving through our friends at Fun&Sun. They opened a new world for us and did it an extremely friendly and professional way. A big thank you to Sito, Ve and the two Rene’s. They formed us into Open Water Divers! Hope to be back soon.

On our last trip to Malapascua, we had the most awesome dives of our lives... The thresher were there, 2 of them, huge ones. They came so close to us that we literally could not threath. This was 17 minutes of an amazing experience. Fun & Sun's banca, the Maarte, was so comfortable and fast, although we were not the first boat to leave the island of malapascua, we were the first ones to get to the dive site of Monad, and we were able to get the best spot. Naz, the dive master was really good. I recommend Fun & Sun to anyone going to Malapascua

Booked due to reasonable price but then we were asked to pay php1500 for hotel pick up from a resort about 10 minutes from the office. We decided to book a Grab which saved us php1200. Once there the staff were friendly and helpful. Once we were ready we then had to walk 200m across mud flats with many sea urchins which took quite while-felt like we were crossing a minefield. Once on the boat it transpired that one of the boats was broken and this meant that we had to join a bigger boat and it was about an hour before we left. That said the staff onboard clearly love what they do and were lots of fun. The stop offs were ok. I would question if the scuba equipment was properly cleaned between tours as we had our sets taken off us between five sites meaning we definitely had someone else’s snorkel at the 2nd dive site. Lunch was an excellent bbq! We had a good day but there were some issues which irritated us

We were group of divers and went to safari trip of two weeks. Boat had problems in firs hour. They fixed it but we were late with start so we arrived to Malapascua during the night. However worst part on the boat is that it does not have fresh water to wash hands before meals. Toilet does not have flush water, no light and no sink to wash hands. In total it is very dirty. When we complained to the JC (owner) he put it on the funny side but no improvements happened, and at the end it is not funny at all because they should provide some service. Crew is outstanding and really try to please all guests. Food was great considering that they cook on really poor kitchen. This boat is definitely not for few day cruises and safari, half day trip is a max to consider if you can survive terrible toilet and lack of water. Not to recommend at all.

We recently did a dive with Fun and Sun and had the most awful and dangerous experience. After arranging a simple and checkout dive to become acquainted with some new equipment we found ourselves on a boat going to a normal 20 meter dive. Deciding to go ahead and do the dive despite our ignored reservation we quickly realized that this was a huge mistake. Shortly after entering the water the dive guide grabbed my partners hand and dragged her very quickly down to depth. I am not sure what caused this behavior, whether he was showing off or flirting with her, but he became very aggressive and refused to let her go, I had to race to follow and try to get her away from him. As she began to panic he refused to allow her to ascend despite both her and my clear and repeated hand signals for trouble and immediate ascent. I spent the next 15 minutes dragging her and fighting him to get her safely to surface at a controlled rate, at one point he was even dragging her by her octo hose. This was the most unprofessional and dangerous experience we have ever had. We are both certified divers and had no issues on this dive other than the one caused by the dive guide. I was clearly monitoring a safe ascent on my computer throughout this emergency and our ascent was largely controlled other than the the bounces caused when he was dragging her down. To be fair our 2 teenage children had a wonderful and safe discover dive with another staff member, but they could very well have lost their mother given our experiences meters below them.

I have used their boats several times. They have several sizes, depending on the number of passengers. For our last trip for our sales staff outing, we decided to just go to Olango's fish sanctuary area. Among the different fish sanctuaries, Olango is the most sparse, but cheaper entrance fee. We got the discovery scuba for the sales staff, so even if there were not much fish, for first timer scuba, it was a great experience.

Considering a boat rental is fun & sun's core operation, reservations are preferred, desired, and even required. Imagine how a no show or last minute cancellation will affect their business. That's why I do not agree with one of the reviews here where they booked on 2 shops on the last minute, assumed they could be the same company (and actually are not). In that case it was asking for a rebuttal. Customer is NOT always right as the customer in this case was wrong.

I have no problems at all with fun & sun. On several occasions, we would also pre arrange from a native grill restaurant to grill squid and native chicken on board, at no extra corkage charge by fun & sun. The freshly grilled food plus lechon, plus a few other food to complete the lunch menu, that's how it should be.

Showers and toilets could be improved though

Had a great experience diving with my instructor Arturo at fun and sun for 3 days. The course was done efficiently and it was great fun. The rooms on site are well worth staying in as they are good value and very clean. Anything I needed they helped me with and the food was great also. Highly recommended!
