“Still the best dive center I know!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

When you enter the shop you can feel and see already, that you are surrounded be real professionals who know very well what they are doing. Starts with proper planning and organisation, goes on with care for equipment and finally ends up with perfectly performed boat rides and dives. No matter whether dive guide, boatmen or instructors, all of the love there jobs and the customer can feel it. Friendly, organized and allways helpful. The team makes you feel that they want you to have great dives and fun.

As well the prices are clear and have no hidden costs like in many other dive shops.

So we had great two weeks of diving and for sure will come back again!

“Excellent dive center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

We spent a couple of days diving with Philippine Fun Divers in Alona Beach. Very professional dive center with great equipment and big nice dive boats. Had some of my best dives ever in Balicasag with these guys. Michelle is a great instructor with ten years experience who I definitely recommend for dive courses.
Will dive with them again next time I'm in Alona Beach!

“Dive with Confidence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

Very organized, clean good equipment, with the best boats in Alona beach.
Very nice staff, especially Toto, Hiroshi, the reception ladies and Rena ( instructor who is a Japanese version of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider).
Reasonably priced, and of course the diving was awesome.

“Top notch dive shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2011

Did 3 days of diving. Twice to Balicasag and Arco reef on my last day. The staff is first rate. Will definately dive with them again when I visit Panglao. The staff was very friendly and as a Divemaster, I like to compare how dive operators treat their guests.

“excellent dive shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2011

This is the second year that I dived with this center. The owner Holger Horn is very knowledgeable and a good instructor. Their boats are clean and appear in excellent condition. Staff carry your gear to the boat and assemble it if requested, and carry it back to the shop, but do not disassemble it. Divers wash their own gear in what always appeared to be very clean washbasins. Your gear is safe when left overnight in their locked room. They no longer offer SSI courses but offer a full range of PADI courses. There are several very nice dive sites within a 20-minute boat ride. They offer once weekly trips to Cabilao and almost daily trips to wonderful Balicasag. This dive shop is extremely flexible with the scheduling of dive times to accommodate the needs of the diver. My only complaint about this operation is that you never get a full tank (i.e., 3000psi) of air; my readings ranged from a high of 2904psi to a low of 2796psi.
