“CHEAPEST DIVE!”

Carabao Dive Center
Reviewed 14 March 2016

You've got no reason not to dive in Davao! This is the best dive center for first time divers! Talikud Island is blessed with colorful corals and school of fish.

Day Tour Island Hopping with Carabao Dive Center was full of fun. The crew were so accommodating. Our family booked for a trip to celebrate my cousin's birthday. The trip is scheduled from 7am to 4pm. However, the motor banca came late. So instead on cruising by 7am sharp, we left the port around 9am. The trip was so awesome. Yet we have to cut the trip short because of strong winds approaching. We left the areas around 3pm, arriving 4pm to the port.

I booked a dive tour with Carabao for the weekend and did two dives - Coral Garden & Angels Cove. The trip and the dives were okay, but not much more than that. The amount of service you will get from Carabao isn't much for example do they not reply my continuous text messages to set up another dive trip during the week. Instead I stumbled upon Moonstar Scuba
divers in Samal. They arranged
a dive trip for me with 3 dives - Mansud Wall, Coral Garden and Angels Cove. The gear as well as the service was much better.. Thanks to dive master Rene.
In short a much better experience

We had a great time at carabao, with an amazing teacher!! If you are looking for a French teach on koh tao, magalie is by far one of the best!! Great teaching methods and made learning super fun! Had a great time and the hostel has AC which makes it easy to have a good night sleep and ready for a dive in the morning! I'm would definitely go back of a 30m dive!!!

One of my moms friends reccomended this place when we mentioned we were going to be traveling to Davao this summer. I am so glad that we followed her advice. The island hopping was very enjoyable and relaxing. The crew on board was very kind and helpful to all 37 of us. Three of us went scuba diving(just for fun). Each of us had a diving instructor(1 on 1). They instructed us on exactly what we would be doing and answered all of the questions we had very well. The diving instructors made sure to watch us carefully and monitored our gauge and bcd for us. I believe they did a very good job. We stopped at the dive shop to pick up the pictures our instructors had taken. All of the staff there was very courteous and helpful. I decided to get my diving certification from them and am currently in the process of getting my certification. I am very pleased with everything.
