We felt looked after during our time with the crew which were good att spotting small critters. The gear is typical of dive centers in this region. My gf took a advanced... More

Did 2 days of diving. Guide where professional and fun. The days at the boat where amazing. Crew was nice, food was good. We started the day with proper introductions which made the days with strangers less awkward. Actually, made some new friends this way. Palawan Divers, thank you!

I visited Palawan divers to complete my PADI Open Water course. Completely new to the diving world I chose to dive here for a number of reasons, location, price and other reviews on Tripadvisor another major reason was the quality of the website which was far superior than competitors in the area, it gave me the reassurance that the centre...

Went out with Palawan divers after talking to a couple of less friendly and more expensive companies in town. Had a great time with Juk and the crew. Lunch is cooked onboard. Super fresh and tasty. Overall highlight of our week in El Nido.

Nhoy was our dive master for 4 days diving on my recent holiday to El Nido, I was very nervous as I had a drowning incident last summer and its taken me a lot to get under. Nhoy was really understanding, helpful and let me hold his hand when I was panicking under water! He deserves a medal! The boat... More

Centrally located with a well trained staff and guides. No more than 8 people per boat, and 4 per dive master. Boats were smaller, but adequate. Lots of dive areas, but not as impressive as other places we've been in the Philippines. Great experience.
