“Best place to dive in Alona Beach!”
Reviewed January 13, 2015

After finishing my medical studies last september, I wanted to go on my PADI certificates and get the DiveMaster. Looking for a good place, I choose Philippine Fun Divers to go training for a month.
What a good choice! All the staff is very friendly, but most of all everything is done in a very professional way.
As a DM student, I saw all the ins and outs of the shop, and nothing was left aside.
Holger is a very good president, and as he said "Security comes first", and that is so in PFD!
You get a very good equipment, check periodically by the staff, and repaired immediatly if needed.
Rena is a very good manager, teaching a lot of different technics.
Frank was my personnal instructor, what a reliable man and funny!
Definitely you can go to PFD to have a good dive without hesitation, nearly closed eyes (but you will miss all the beautifull stuff underwater).
This is where to have FUN, and to stay SAFE!
Enjoy the dive!

“Stay Safe, Learn a Lot and Go to Philippine Fun Divers”
Reviewed January 9, 2015

I really enjoyed the team at Philippine Fun Divers. The manager Rena is wonderful and cheerful and great at managing and ensuring happy clients. Frank was our PADI diver and he was a very competent teacher who did not cut corners. While many of the PADI instructors do cut corners, Frank and Philippine Fun Divers express a commitment to teach you what you need to know to be safe and enjoy scuba diving - I appreciated that. Frank also accommodates his students expertise and comfort. The other master divers and support staff are competent and the equipment is good. So, enjoy a safe diving experience at Philippine Fun Divers.

“Awesome introduction to diving.”
Reviewed January 1, 2015

Me and my mate have just finished our OWC here and can't believe how great the experience was. Our instructor Frank is a legend. We trained in a group of 5 all of whom had pretty much zero knowledge of diving before the course, this wasn't a problem as Franks skills as a tutor and easy going nature put us all at ease from the start.
I would recommend this place as the one to choose if you want to dive in panglao. All the staff here are extremely friendly and very helpful, the equipment is in first class condition and there attention to detail and safety is impeccable.

“Well done "Frank the tank" ”
Reviewed December 26, 2014 via mobile

We made the AOW and scuba diver. Frank was a very good instructor. Dive center with a very good service. Only a bit stupid that you have to pay so much for the PADI book but it seems obligatory on the whole Island. Have been to licensed PADI centers where you do not have to buy it.
