My wife and I did our OW certification with them and had the best experience we could have asked for. Professionally run shop, our instructors and the dive masters made sure we had an unforgettable time. Can´t wait to be back and dive with them again. Highly recommend Submariner.

Had so much fun with Submariner! Such friendly and enthusiastic people, they really made us comfortable. The dive sites are incredible... If you're in El Nido you shouldn't miss it! Such a fun day.

While in El Nido I stopped by this establishment late one evening, from that point on everything necessary to complete my open water certification was handled. Great staff, great dives, best food I ate on the entire 2 weeks in country was on the beach between dives. 2 thumbs up for he entire experience. Andre Samayoa, my instructor was knowledgable...

This club is FANTASTIC and offers very affordable diving. I dived with Submariner for 8 days in a row after reassuring myself I would only do 2 to save money for the rest of my travels but it was too much fun to stay away. I had so much fun with all the staff at Submariner. Very relaxed, fun but... More

I had the great fortune of spending nearly a month with Ronny and his Submariner crew, first working on my Rescue Diver and then completing my DM. The staff is highly professional, the teaching quality excellent and the equipment first rate. I was intensively coached throughout my training and was able to gain insight into the administration of a whole... More

I'm glad that we did our Open Water Course here. Everyone is so nice and patient. I never panicked in my life, but during mask removal I always managed to suck water through my nose and with the help of Aoibheann I managed to learn the skill. Now there is nothing left than practice. She is a very good instructor,... More
