Many of our guests refer to their Seafari experience with us as one of their best travel experience ever.

Our maiden voyage was in 2009, and from that point on we have been exploring for new dive sites in the Calamianes Islands and Culion area. We found some untouched dive sites along the way, some of which we have named and to our knowledge no one else dives in. No two Seafaris are exactly alike. Palawan province. We can organize different dive packages, which we will design based on your experience, budget, and things you like to see - average trips take 2 to 5 diving days.

We did a day trip in. Boat which included 3 dives and lunch. The staff are well organised and helpful. The dive sites they chose were very interesting . The visibility was about 20 metres. The dive master was very experienced and gave good briefings to refresh skills and dive signs. All up a great day.

I just walked into the shop and felt immediately welcome. I hadn't booked in advance and got lucky to dive the day after. Everybody was very nice and I felt in good hands because they asked a lot of questions regarding experience and were a lot about safety. My dive master was Richard. A young man who knows what he's...
