Every member of our staff works well and works together to make your day as good as it gets. We want to make diving safe and cosy. That is why we limit the number of divers on board and in the diving groups. We divide our divers to groups based on their experience level, and the maximum number of divers we give to one guide is 4. Safety is our priority, and apart from handling our equipment with care during our daily operations, we revise all gear at fixed intervals to make sure everything is working well. « less

Jerome runs a safe, fun, and reputable diving operation. We did 3 days of diving, and couldn't have asked for better service. Good price, great people, and a lovely dive experience. After diving with Palawan Divers and seeing some other dive outfits in El Nido, I wouldn't use anyone else. We were sorry to leave!

Jerome the manager was very helpful, months before we even arrived! He's always quick to reply to email, giving ideas and answering questions for whatever you want to know about El Nido. The best thing about the Dive Center was definitely the excellent customer service. Glaidy at the counter was always helpful with keeping my stuff while I go diving,... More

Book with Palawan divers before you arrive in El Nido. We have dived across the world -- this shop gets top marks all the way around. The shop is comfortable and professional. The dive master working with us was excellent. Again, very professional. While we had a new beginner with two advanced divers in our group of friends, the dive... More

After a disappointing experience with another top-rated dive shop in El Nido, I was sceptical to try this one. Still, my friends and I decided to check out Palawan Divers and we had very good impressions since. First of all, I think Palawan Divers has the best-looking shop in El Nido. The area is big, clean and airy with a... More

I can really recommend Palawan Divers. I just completed my PADI open water course whilst my wife did her refresher training having qualified a few years ago. On the advice of the proprietor, Jerome, I did the theory section of the training online before arriving in El Nido, so was able to get on with diving on day one. Jerome... More
