My son and I were supposed to spend a day at our hotel just relaxing but decided to do one dive while here. We looked at our hotels dive shop but they were not open yet and the staff walking around outside did not seem very helpful or enthusiastic. Tropical Divers was located right outside our hotel at Amorita Resort.... More

I did 12 dives at Tropical Divers and experienced skilled dive guides, great service and low prices. At the dives there were one dive guide pre 2 divers and they were great to spot tings. The staff on the dive boat were also very helpful and took good care of the equipment. I had a lot of great dives and... More

I checked out a few dive shops along the beach, and this one was more than happy for me to check over their equipment. I decided to use Tropical Divers because of their equipment and attitude; it was a bonus that they were also the cheapest on the beach. The four of us dove two days with them, and the... More

We stopped at 5 dive shops along the beach for prices and found Tropical Divers to have the most reasonable price (1,500 per dive which included EVERYTHING versus all the add-ones presented by the other dive shops). We also liked them because it's run by Filippinos. The staff were incredibly professional, with great equipment, and laid back attitudes. JoJo was... More

We were 3 guys. All going for the basic Padi "Discover scuba diving". Tropical Divers has all the newest and best gear - it's clean and you can see it's well maintained. The educational program and the teacher were perfect and very helpful. The pool in which we had our test dive was wonderful. Tropical divers has 3 boats. We... More

The dive operator was recommended by my dive instructor from Manila. Since I was the only one who dives in the family we got accommodations in another place. I just called them up to book for a dive and they handled everything very well even my pick-up and return to the place where we were staying at. The dive master,... More

Thanks you to Tropical Divers. You reccomend us for Balicasay. The diving in Balicasay so very good, little windy and cold but ok. Not too slow or fast finning so enough time to catch the dive master. It would be nice to have some hot drink like coffee or hot chocolate on the boat. But just suggesting.

Did a total of 5 dives with Tropical and they were all wonderful experiences. The dive master Ian was awesome and experienced! He was pointing out things all the time but also let me explore at my own pace. Also a really nice guy outside the water. Their boat was big, which made it comfortable. The trip to Balicasag was...
