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.

Did several dives with them in Feb and I liked it. The staff is competent and I felt safe with their equipment and instructors. I really liked the flexibilty of the dive spots which were chosen directly on the spot. For every dive level in our group we managed to make the best decission. Thanks Rufo to be our dive... More

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

As Canadians currently living South East Asia my girlfriend and I are fortunate to spend our holiday time diving throughout the region. This Christmas we decided to spend the week of Christmas in the Philippines diving with Frontier scuba. It was a fantastic experience and we cannot say enough about the folks at Frontier Scuba!

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

Hi folks, my better half and I have been heading to Sabang, Puerto Galera for diving for about a year and a half at this point. We are regulars at Frontier and having spent some time with different dive operators in Sabang, as well as all over the Philippines, we would not recommend anyone else to our friends, our family...

Rick introduced me and my "budy" to the diving world in the best way possible: nice theoretical lessons mixed with practicing diving skills, a quiet approach to any doubt, concern in order to give to you confidence and the right skill... and all of this in a wonderful environment full of diving life to be discovered. It has became a... More

Thanks again Rick for his experienced traning and patience. As freshmen, we had a very good course to master the open water diving skills. Although we did many mistakes in the water, Rick was always patient and caring with us. What's more, we really love what we saw in the sea. All the corals and animals, frogfish, lionfish, snakes, turtles... More

Thank you to everyone at Frontier Scuba, especially Corey for coaching me through my rescue and Divemaster qualification last year and making me feel as though I were among great friends. Rick planned my course, transport from the airport, and living arrangements for when I first arrived in the Philippines, making the move to Puerto Galera as easy as possible... More
