Reviewed March 27, 2017

My wife completed Open Water PADI course. Special thanks to Frank! He is an excellent dive instructor. Professionalism, patience and outstanding customer service - that’s what you see when you dive with Frank. He helped on every step during the course and my wife finished it because of Franks help. Nice equipment and boats.Very nice dive shop. Very good team. They organized our airport and ferry transfer. All drivers were on time and very polite and safe. Thanks Liza for scheduling it! Five star!

“PADI Open Water”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 via mobile

We just finished our PADI Open Water Course here with Rex and loved it!

I contacted a number of dive centres along Alona Beach and this one immediately stood out - from initial contact with Holger on the Facebook page, Liza over email and then Rex, our instructor, who was brilliant - patient, knowledgable and a great sense of humour.

Looking as a beginner it seems this place is really well run, and I can only hope my future dive experiences match up to the same standards.

Thanks again Rex and the team!

“Dive Safari!!! Amazing Dive Shop, people, and customer service!!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 via mobile

Philippine Fun Divers' hospitality, professionalism, and experienced staff were absolutely exceptional. Our group wanted a 6 day dive safari that would bring us from Panglao to Siquijor to Apo to Oslob while also diving Balicasag, Cabilao, Alona Housereef, and other local dive sites. We conducted 16 dives and the experience was unforgettable. The only regret we have is that we couldn't stay longer. Ms Liza and Flor were flawless in their support provided. Thank you ladies so much for your hard work in helping me make this trip a reality. Your patience, prompt service, and experience were absolutely perfect. Toto and GC were the very best PADI professionals. Their dive knowledge, focus on safety, and local knowledge were phenomenal. We got to see ghost pipefish, frog fish, school of jacks, school of sardines, whalesharks, ribbon eels, snakes, small to large nudibranchs, large clams, squid, lion fish, scorpionfish, flounder, pristine coral gardens, white tipped shark, giant barracuda and so much more. Thank you gentlemen for making our dive experience unforgettable. The boat crew was so cool. They took care of everything, from taking care of our dive gear to making life on the boat relaxed and refreshing - they even provided comic relief :) Definitely could see how tight knit the whole group was - sharp, professional, and very hardworking. The trips by boat covered hundreds of kilometers but the crew made it comfortable and adventurous. Thank you guys for making it happen!!!

Already planning a trip back in June and another group safari in April/May 2018.

Philippine Fun Divers has everything your looking for and more. You will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic team & diving experience ”
Reviewed February 23, 2017 via mobile

We had a fantastic 2 weeks diving with Philippine Fun Divers, their boats are very well maintained and organised, the whole team is very helpful and committed to you having the best experience possible, their equipment and facilities are excellent. Toto was our dive master both on private and group tours, he went out of his way to make sure we saw a huge range of marine life, we wanted sea horses, turtles, schools of jack fish, sea snakes, moray eels, frog fish, whale shark and a list to big to name - we saw it all thanks to this team. We learnt so much from Toto and felt completely safe the whole time. His patience and encouragement was excellent my husband & I had been out of the water for a few years and were both feeling wobbly getting back in. If you are looking for a safe company to dive with, folk who maintain their equipment to a very high standard, care about your experience and take pride in the job they do then book your dives with Philippine Fun Divers. Thank you team you should all be proud of yourselves.
