This is my first tome visiting phillipins n def the first time doing diving. Thx to PFD and our instructor Ole, they’ve made it one of a life time experiences! Ole was super nice n patient, always encouraging n fun. My frnd’s eyes were infected so she couldn’t do the OW course as scheduled. The dive shop along with Ole tried their best to play around with the schedule after my frnd’s eyes got better so that she can finish her OW course. N I kinda freaked out first time going to 12m under water, Ole was really good at calming me down n ensuring i’ll Be fine. Great thxxxx to our instructor Ole! Def would go back for AOW!

When I was in Alona Beac this January, I specifically asked Rena (manager/guide) to show me the wonderful characters in the nearby house reef. She not just pointed all the amazing lives in the reef, but introduced them to me in very memorable and unique way. For example, she interacted with a tiny moray eel gently, so the moray stayed around all excited for a long time and I could take a video of the encounter. While we are giggling very loud underwater to the moray’s comedic behavior.
And of course shop is very well run with a clean shop and very efficient boat operation.

I highly recommend this dive shop when you are in Alona Beach!

Entered the shop by pure chance and couldn't be happier to have done the OWC there.

Our instructor Frank was excellent, very knowledgeable, fun, good at explaining concepts with ease and transmitted a lot of confidence and security.

Highly recommended to choose them, we enjoyed it a lot!

I got PADI open water certified here with my wife. We booked on the day and were fortunate to have Han as our instructor.
I had never been scuba diving before so I was quite nervous and got more anxious finding out about all the risks in more detail while watching the videos on the first day.
Han was ideal for me because she was extremely calm and patient despite me making so many stupid mistakes. She is also very experienced and explained everything clearly and thoroughly so each day I felt more and more comfortable and confident in the water. She really helped me stay relaxed 18m under water which was important.
I was also impressed with all the guys in the background diligently preparing all the equipment and the boats so everything ran smoothly and on time.
During the dives we saw many turtles, a huge school of Jack fish and countless other exotic sea life.
Highly recommended and enjoyed.

I made the initial inquiries about 3 month ahead of my trip and I received swift answers to all of them. This made my choice easy to start with. Thank you Liza.
I spent three days with Philippine Fun Divers of which the dives at Balicasag where the highlight. The rental equipment is good, the boat used for the trip to the dive sites is noisy but ok (I have been told their second and better boat is undergoing maintenance). The guides and the boat crew is helping with everything so that the only thing I had to do myself was diving :-)
There was usually groups of 4-5 plus guide. I enjoyed every dive with them and even when diving a dive spot twice on different days there marine life was so different that I can see why this was a good choice.
Thank you for making my stay at Alona Beach, Panglao such a great experience.
