A little overdue, but I would like to give a major shout out to this wonderful dive center.
Firstly, Alex, the manager of this dive shop and my lovely dive instructor gave me an absolutely beautiful first diving experience.He was patient and extremely caring.
I remember being extremely terrified of certain tasks I had to do, but with his calm assurance and instruction, I was able to overcome my fears and I got certified!!

Everyone we met at the center were very experienced and offered help wherever necessary. In addition, the beaches and dive site were beyond description too.

Will definitely return one day!!!

My first plan was to visit several places in Phils for 3 weeks But after I dropped off into Tropical Divers I felt as came to old friends and stayed here for all time. Friendliness and hospitality of the multinational team is combined with the highest discipline and professionalism which makes diving interesting enjoyable and SAFE. Fair prices without hidden tricks like in some dive center nearby. For 2 courses and 25 dives I paid significantly less than offered in other places on Alona. So Highly Recommend Best location, staff, facilities, prices, friendly atmosphere and great diving its Tropical Divers.
I'll Back

Fantastic place to learn how to dive. I visited tropical divers march 2017 with my husband
. I was scared 100 % but before diving. Alex the instructor was very understanding and calm, so he showed me how to relax and enjoy diving. June 2017 I took my scuba diving certificate and since March last year I have been diving in Tenerife, Denmark and in 2 days I’m going diving in phi phi island Thank you Alex, I often think about your diving lesson and thank you for showing me the underwater world.
