I completed my PADI OW with Andre as my instructor. Everything went without a hitch. He gave clear instructions, was patient, and was very chill. He made sure that I was prepared before the skills dives and it helped a lot to ease the nerves as a first-time diver. I also did some fun dives with Rommy. Both DMs were... More

Probably one of, if not the, most well organised dive shops I've used anywhere. Really friendly and helpful staff. Top marks as well to Ronny, the owner. Great guy all around who puts a lot of effort into maintaining a high level of professionalism. If you have the time, do not miss the 4-day dive safari to Coron. Great dive... More

Very professional dive shop. Good equipment, good boats. Excellent staff. I was surprised by the quality of the dive masters and instructors. They were phenomenal. Safety definitely comes first here. It was so enjoyable diving with them, I would highly recommend diving with them when you come to El Nido. We saw turtles and a wide variety of coral fish.

We came to El Nido in order to go diving and get our OWD-license... with Submariner Diving Center we found a great diving school with very cool and experienced instructors with whom the course was great fun but still very professional just like the organization by Ronny, the owner! I would always come again, thanks for everything guys!

Highly Professional dive center: incredible dive masters, first brand equipment in perfect conditions, huge boat and average prices. Really good for courses (they were very flexible to my requirements) and also for fun dives. Best briefings i got in all my 200 dives.

I did the Discover Scuba Diving with my girlfriend. It was my first time diving, so i was a little bit nervous. I was not comfortable during the test diving off the beach and had problems breathing, but our instructor Stef was really patient and helped me a lot to feel comfortable. Honestly at first i thought i wouldn't be... More

Diving in 28 degree water is never going to be a bad experience, but diving with this centre made sure that I really did get the most out of my dives. I did my PADI Open Water here, and chose the 3 day course. The centre made sure that all of my time was used as efficiently as possible through... More

I had a holiday vacation in El Nido December 2014. My boyfriend and I booked online a one day dive with them prior to going to Elnido and their online booking is amazing too which is not too often in the Philippines. A day before the dive, my boyfriend and I passed by their center to check on things and... More
