We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. Our diving instructor was very knowledgeable and kind. He made sure that the activity was safe and fun. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. They briefed us properly about our package. Their equipment was very easy to use. Overall it was a good experience.

Spent 3 days diving with Paul and Emil at South Sea and had a great time. Their equipment is good quality and well-maintained and they handle everything professionally while still keeping a relaxed and casual atmosphere. They know the dive sites inside and out, most of which are within just a 5 or 10 minute boat ride of the dive... More

Just a quick note of recommendation for the team at South Sea Divers. My friends and I have been here a few times recently and can't fault anything. The service has been fantastic and professional, whilst the diving has been great. Next trip scheduled for June, can't wait! Regards, Hamish

My training was spread just over 1 week with a total of 12 dives including Deep, Drift, Wreck, Night, Nitrox, Multi Level, Computer and Navigator.... More

Although Sabang is absolutely not to my likings, I have enjoyed my dives with south sea divers a lot. The underwater life for all the dive centers in Sabang is the same, but what makes this center special is the great atmosphere among the staff and the divers. Many of the customers here are returning customers. New people will feel... More

I went to Sabang to enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course at 'South Sea Divers' in March 2014. This somewhat smaller dive centre is driven by 'Sky', an American dive master, who founded it some decades ago as one of the first dive spots in Sabang. Sky also became my dive instructor, which turned out to be very... More

Great dive centre with nice friendly staff that offers relaxing diving at a reasonable price. The boats are good and entry/exit during dives is pretty easy. The staff are pretty flexible to where there guests want to dive if the conditions are safe! Puerto Galera diving was better than I expected, although there is not really any big stuff there...
