Last Saturday I logged my 8th Dive, I saw 4 Green Sea Turtles and 2 Barracudas all in one dive. And the day after that I logged my 9th dive and experienced... More

I did an open water course with Sea Rider Dive Center over four days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructor Mark Narvacan couldn't have been more helpful and patient, taking me through the basics, then doing the open water dives. Because of his attention to detail I noticed a marked improvement in my diving performance after every dive. I would... More

I like the manner that they teach scuba diving. They don't just talk you through the entire academics but they customizes it to your need. I am a very OC person and safety has always been a top priority, and they have never failed to deliver it from all aspects for the program. They always make sure you are READY,... More

Just as they said: "Best choice for backpacker". I have spent 4 fantastic days with these guys for diving and party(Mark's birthday). They have experienced DM for your choice wether Canyons or muck dives and good for money. Next time I would stay with them for more days to enjoy the life in SeaRider again.

Sea Rider's rates are relatively more affordable as compared to other dive centers in the Philippines. I'm usually the type who feels iffy towards cheaper alternatives probably because in my mind it wasn't good to be true, I hate hidden charges and definitely hate subpar services. But my gut told me to try Sea Riders, and it did not disappoint.... More

We took our PADI open water certification here. It was a blast. Mark and his staff were very thorough and they help you in every step of the way. The staff makes you feel comfortable when learning to scuba dive and they never judge you for not knowing something. Excellent service, fun and friendly staff, great value. . They are... More
