I took the Open Water Course there and it was really fun. My instructor Frank Yamamoto was quite friendly and he's really passionate about diving. Liza at the desk and the rest of the staff were also nice and helpful with everything.

I definitely recommend Philippine Fun Divers to everyone.

We always do a private charter because we feel our time is limited so we want the best and once again it paid off as this shop was run very well and the crew was great. We discussed the places we wanted to see and laid out our timeline and away we went. Very well taken care of and they made sure we got to see the best they had to offer. Would go again with these folks anytime and would recommend to any divers this operation. Glad we chose them.

Liza took my booking and she was helpful and friendly. I had my instructor Frank Y all to myself, and he was excellent at communicating the skills i needed to master and made sure I got the most out of my dives and training.

After thorough research prior to our arrival we decided to dive with PFD. I must say it didnt live up to our (rather high set after reading on tripadvisor) expectations. It wasnt bad and we did actually decide to do all our dives with them after all. Flor and Liza makes sure everything actually work and they do a very good (and hard) job!! Thank you! We felt this dive center was probably better for inexperienced divers taking their first certificate. As a fun diver it was OK. Not the worst experience but the owners, dive masters and other staff could do so much more to give the customers a better experience and value for the money. The equippment was OK. Boats OK. Nothing bad, nothing special and I would say 5 star feels a bit exaggarated honestly. However safe. They do have limited space and it is understandable things get a bit crowded etc. However Liza and Flor does a fantastic job to make sure logistics work and we got our equippment every dive. They had 15L tanks and there was really never any problems with equippment. The dive masters could do more, most tips, help and ideas came from fellow divers and even after trying to get tips and ideas from DMs and really trying to drag info out of then they could not really recommend or describe divesites etc.

We went almost exclussively to balicasag, nice turtles. But would have wanted more bit felt the DMs were some what indifferent.

The dive center is located just beside a restaurant and one would think they would help with fresh fruit (no food, not even fruit, is served on dive boats) bit the staff at the restaurant were actually very unfriendly. Two young girls run an excellent little fresh fruit schack 50m away on the beach (further away from Karls Coffe, a really small place bit very good!) and they are also open early mornings. Overall I think PFD are OK but our experience was unfortenatelly not as good as many of the other reviewers here on tripadvisor. With a little effort from management it probably could live up to, and become 5 star padi. Would not recommend for fun divers but possibly for new divers that want to take AOW. Thank you Liza and Flor for making our experience nice.
