We had booked 2 dives with Savedra. The first was shore dive to see the sardines for which you just need to swim out a few meters to the water and go down as its a sudden deep after a bit of shallow. We saw millions of beautiful sardines and corals but what we felt is- if you are a... More

Hi Megha rest assured if you were told that a dive site was unsuitable for your skill/training level, it was done with your best interests in mind. We have several boats, if one fills up, we supply another, that wouldn't have been a reason to keep you from a dive site. Lee More

The employees are all really nice, not exactly helpful, but very nice. They always seem to be playing catchup with what is going on in the office. You need to sign up for your dives a day or two in advance to make sure they aren't full, so be prepared to wait a day or two after arriving in high... More

Hi PilotDags During busy periods such as the Easter break it will be busy. Booking ahead is recommended anytime, but essential during these periods. You elected not to book in advance, we did our best to accommodate you, but naturally those that did book will be given priority. Lee More

To start off, i want to point out that I have never written a bad review about any place I've been to but this was a particularly bad customer experience.

Hi Brendan it's worth considering that dive instructors work on commission, it's not in their interests to turn people away, when to do turn people down due to medical problems it demonstrates a lot of responsibility from them. Customers coming to us for dive courses have a great deal of choice in terms of where and who to train with,... More
