I took my open water course with Philippines Fun Divers and I have absolutely no regrets. Rex, my instructor was very professional, patient and clear in his explanations. And of course; always smiling. He doesn't rush and adapt well to the level of the students. Only small classes here in this club.
Also, all the staff is helpful and makes you feel welcome. They will go the extra mile for you if you are interested
I will go there again for my advanced open water with no hesitation.
Can't wait to go back !

I was doing the Divemaster and DSD Leader with Philippines fun divers for one month and it was a awesome time with these professionals. Everyone is so nice and they work so hard to give customers a great time. I appreciate that. Specially thanks to Frank he was my Instructor during the time and I learned a lot from him not just about diving. I definitely wanna come back to dive with them again. Cheers!

best regards

I came to Philippines Fun Divers to do my OW certification in September last year... I had such a positive experience that I had already decided to do my Advance OW here too, but I ended up doing it in Mexico (couldn´t regret more my decision). My (bad) experience in México gave me enough perspective to understand that good dive shops as well as responsible and reliable instructors are the exceptions and not the rule… And once you found one, you simple better stay around… So I came back in March this year for the EFR and Enriched Air, and I just finished the Rescue Diver course. The fact that I keep coming back (and that I will come back to do other courses like sidemount and Dive master) show pretty clear my opinion about Philippines Fun Divers and about Frank Yamamoto, my Instructor.
The short version is: The facilities are clean, well organized and complete. The equipment is well maintained. The staff is friendly and very professional; make you feel welcomed since the first email. Frank is a wonderful instructor: besides the knowledge required by PADI, he goes the extra mile when he realizes the student is interested and shares the knowledge coming from his own (impressive) personal experience as former Marine. Above all I felt very safe with him underwater and this is essential for a beginner.
Congratulations PFD, you have a serious fan here =D See you all back in a couple of months!

My husband and I didn't go for the certification course due to lack of time. We had to take the Discover Scuba Dive which is for beginners. There is an elaborate theory session followed by practicals in the pool and then the actual dive in the ocean at the Alona Housereef. The Alona Housereef is a beautiful coral site rich with diverse types of fishes (especially star fishes). Our instructor, Rex, was nice and patient.

Excellent instructors, excellent diving, excellent equipment and dive shop.
We did a full day of diving out to Balicasag Island and it was stunning! I had a few issues with my dive (equalising), but our guide was patient and helpful.
