We went back to Malapascua and Sea Explorers over Christmas and enjoyed it even more than previous stays. The dive shops work extremely hard on conserving the environment and protecting the marine life. Despite this island having got very busy over the past four years , the reefs are improving and the marine life improving. Gato in particular has a... More

I had a hard time with the material that was not good and also my regulator didn't work properly . Really bad experience. The most expensive school and the worst material given... I will not chose them again for any of my dives in the future.

Pascale M, Manager at Sea Explorers Malapascua, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your feedback. After your 1 dive you have informed our dive guide as well as our manager that it seemed to be hard to breath with the rental regulator. Based on our rules in all our dive centers our regulators follow a strict maintenance schedule. Each dive is registered for each regulator. After the regulator... More

Had 10 dives with Sea Explorers. They are probably the most expensive dive shop on the island but it's worth it. Their equipment is all new. Their boat is large with great facilities. The Dive Masters / Instructors are excellent! Everyone is so friendly and you really feel a part of their family. It's such a great atmosphere! Will definitely... More

The dive shop was well equipped. They were all very helpful, and had a diverse mix of dive masters and dive guides in terms of nationalities and gender. They have a very organized system when it comes to dive schedules and allocation of their resources. Was able to join the Monal Shoal early morning dive which was the highlight of... More

Had an airport transfer organised from Cebu that was very impressive with a great driver and comfortable ride. We were greeted on arrival at malapascua and introduced to our instructor Toto, who would take us through our AOW + nitrox course. The whole organisation was extremely impressive. All equipment was well organised and ready to go for every diver. The... More

I've scuba dived all over the world and Sea Explorers is the best I've experienced. Very organized at the dive planning centre and dive groups are small with very experienced local dive masters. Great diving!

We did a week's diving with these dives with 12 dives each, we were very impressed by the good service from the boat crew and the guides always put in a lot of effort. All in all we were very happy. Just a few things, once we went on a rental boat which we weren't too happy with . The... More

I did 40 dives with Sea Explorers as well as my Nitrox and Deep Speciality. Sea Explores would be one of the most professional dive shops I have had the pleasure of diving with. The guides and instructors were all excellent and to all of them I say thanks; It was so much fun diving with you all! Although I... More

Having a previous bad experience at another sea explorers shop (see previous review) the team went all out to regain my confidence. I'm a newbie diver & really appreciated this extra help. Great dive sites, the shipwreck was amazing, can't pick a personal best from the other dives - try them all, you won't be disappointed!

Me and my friend did the advanced certificate with Sea Explorers. Good location and transparent prices (no hidden charges) , super instructors they definitely know what they are doing and they have a good eye for the aquatic animals. Most important, the gear and the boats are in top condition. We always felt safe and in good hands. The highlight... More
