We did not made any prior reservations but was greeted warmly by the staff as soon as we walked in. After checking their schedule, they managed to slot us in for the afternoon fun dive the same day. Dm Alex insisted tht I do a refresher course first it has been 13 months since my last dive. I am glad... More

They are well managed, on time and have very... More

Wasn't into the idea of open water diving until my friends asked me to tag along. It was love at first sight along with the warm welcome from the friends from Universal Diver. They made my initial thought of diving was boring to having passion abt it. Thx guys for making me realise how fun open water diving can be!!

I had my Padi refresher course here with Ali, who is fantastic. And my friend Theresa got her Padi Open Water. Both our instructors were awesome (Theresa had Steve), very knowledgeable, and absolutely hilarious. We had a great time! And of course, the dives were breathtaking. Totally recommend Universal Diver!

Did my Open Water dive course with these guys and then other dives to. An amazing place to learn and dive. The people who run it were brilliant, friendly and very helpful. I definitely recommend giving these guys a try.

I had the good fortune to dive with them while on a quick stop over on the island. They came recommended by a colleague and definitely lived up to their reputation. I hadn't dived for a while, so they made sure I was with their most experienced DM Ali. We did two fantastic dives and I would have loved to... More

My 19 year old son recently completed his open water and advanced open water courses with 'Universal Diver'. He is planning to write a review about the all round amazing experience but I have a few things to say also so thought I would write my own review. As an anxious parent worried about my son travelling alone to Malaysia... More
