After thorough research prior to our arrival we decided to dive with PFD. I must say it didnt live up to our (rather high set after reading on tripadvisor) expectations. It wasnt bad and we did actually decide to do all our dives with them after all. Flor and Liza makes sure everything actually work and they do a very... More

I hadn't dived for a couple of years having had bad experiences in Bali and Thailand. I explained this to the girl in the dive centre, who promised me I would be looked after by an attentive divemaster, and it was great. Being older (60) and not so fit, I appreciatedT the following: 1. Check up dive in the pool... More

I planned to dive on my own with a dive master/group as none of my family are divers and contacted the dive center prior to arrival. The center expected me as planned and booked me in with a group for the next day. I do believe that the dive center is perfect for experienced divers, however, I specifically noted when... More

I would like to say a big thank you to Philippine Fun Divers and especially to our instructor Frank. At the beginning I was a little stressed and afraid of diving but Frank helped me to overcome all my fears. His explanations are clear, he is very patient and professional. Thanks to him I will continue with big pleasure to... More

We were 3 friends to pass the OWC end of February. The dive center is really nice and the whole staff is friendly and very competent. A special thanks to Frank, our instructor during the course. Very calm, very professional and very friendly. He made OWC nice and fun. No hesitation to come back. Thx again

We chose this dive center after reading many positive reviews, but also because of the German management. I compare this dive center with Thresher Shark Divers on Malapascua, from where we arrived at Bohol and dive with which we really liked. LOCATION AND AMENITIES. Located in Lost Horizon Dive Beach Resort, which was very comfortable in our case. Has a... More

After finishing my medical studies last september, I wanted to go on my PADI certificates and get the DiveMaster. Looking for a good place, I choose Philippine Fun Divers to go training for a month.

I really enjoyed the team at Philippine Fun Divers. The manager Rena is wonderful and cheerful and great at managing and ensuring happy clients. Frank was our PADI diver and he was a very competent teacher who did not cut corners. While many of the PADI instructors do cut corners, Frank and Philippine Fun Divers express a commitment to teach... More
