I spent 6 weeks on Alona Beach in may-June 2013 intending to get certified as a Divemaster. I was advised to dive with Michelle Tinsay who is instructor at Philippine Fun Divers and that´s how I get to experience diving with one of the best dive shops on Alona Beach.
I had a fantastic time at Philippine Fun Divers first of all because all the staff is kind and lovely, very helpful and then, because they're highly professional.
You'll see that the dive shop location is very convenient, few meters from the shore and with direct access to a pool to practice skills before going to the ocean, if needed. I believe Philippine Fun Divers has the best equipement, boats and staff on Alona Beach and I strongly advise divers to dive with them, whatever their level.
Toto and Edgar will help you to spot macro stuff and famous frog fishs, Hiroshi is known to find whale sharks, Rena and Michelle are very experienced and patient instructors who love teaching, from open water course to divemaster. If you apply for fun dives you'll definitely have fun in beautiful dive spots, and if you want to learn how to dive or get better, you won't fail and will learn best and safe practices.
If you have the chance to meet Holger, you'll learn much from this former military diver and coast guard who has very specific experience and always has great stories to tell about it.
As for me, I started with the Emergency First Responder course, then passed the Rescue diver course and eventually succeeded in the Divemaster course. I studied and worked closely with Michelle who was more than a mere instructor, she is now a friend and I will always thank her for all she has taught me. She's the best to give you confidence and bring you to go beyond your limits.
Special thanks to all Philippine Fun Divers team : Michelle, Rena, Holger, Toto, Edgar, Hiroshi, JC, Nicolas, Philip, Jose, Boro, Captain, Flor and Lisa, I love you guys <3 and hope I will see you again!
