Dove several dives but will never go again. One of the owners thought it necessary to stab people with a stainless rod that he carries like a freaking madman. I took the gentleman's way out when he stabbed me several times from behind while diving, taking another boat home. But upon collecting my gear he decided to jeer and mock... More

Our dive in Davao was ok, just ordinary. Not much new things to see. Maybe they need to protect some area so coral and fish can live and no fishing. Not so good visibility also, just normal. The dive staff very friendly, and always smiling but hard work for them. They never ask for tip, that is good. I hate... More

I spent a total of four days diving with CDC. Found them to be helpful and fun. OVerall the diving in Davao is not the best of the Philippines, but the vis is good, the corals plentiful and the sealife is good although not as good as some other places in the country. The prices are very good and if... More

Since our trip to Davao was during weekdays, we had a hard time finding a diving shop that could accommodate us considering that most only have intro diving schedules on weekends. Otherwise, we will shoulder the whole cost of the diving trip. I heard about great reviews of Carabao Dive Center and fortunately, they had a scheduled dive during our... More

Very good diving centre for a very good price. The crew are professional, attentive and personable. I did not have any of my equipment so I borrowed theirs, which suited me well. I would highy recommend this place to anyone no matter what your experience. The Davao area itself is full of dive sites and not full of tourists.

For anybody, whether you be an experienced diver or someone who has never done any diving, I would recommend this highly. Lessons would be given by the professional and experienced divers before the actual dive. During the dive, the photographers would be taking pictures of you under water. You would also be accompanied the whole time you're down there. Relax... More

There are few shops in Davao, not for the lack of dive sites but I guess for the low numbers of diving tourists visiting this southern city. Most of the divers at Carabao are locals, foreign students and resident expats. There is a good number of diving photographers in every trip and very knowledgeable crew. Owners and management are also... More
