Oman, is a great instructor, very accommodating and patient. I had so much fun and I think I am now addicted to diving. I can't wait to dive... More

I've been a regular to Sabang for almost ten years and have dived with Frontier and Rick for most of that time. Very knowledgeable crew, well trained, good fun, and always looking after you, they go out in small groups and even if you are just two or three people you often have either your own choice of dive or...

Nice and clean dive shop with proffessional crew. Can't really say one bad word about them. Diving is surprisingly good there, although sometimes currents may make it a bit challenging for newbies or people with larger cameras.

This was the first time we've dived in Puerto Galera, but it would certainly not be our last. The dive sites themselves are amazing with everything from wracks to reef and abundant marine lives and healthy corals. Rick is the best dive guide in Puerto Galera. Not only does he possess unmatched knowledge of local water, we also loved his... More

Rick, the owner of the dive shop, is very accommodating and very prompt to reply to all my inquiries every time we schedule our dives in Sabang. Ate Myrlene, his assistant, is very helpful. They also offer good rates and equipment are in superb conditions.

I consider myself very lucky to have my PADI Advanced Open Water with Rick last week. Rick has invaluable diverse experience to share and had taught me many things beyond the course syllabus We managed to do the "core" electives and learnt the "non-core" along the way. My definition of "non-core" are boat diving, drift diving, fish identification, multi-level dive.... More
