I am very impressed with Oli, Judith and the staff at Kontiki. Dive excursion experiences can vary so greatly, but I spent 3 days with the team, and had great dives each day. I bring my own equipment (after having had too many dive trips compromised by relying on others gear), so I cannot speak to the state of their... More

A list of problem shared by me and the other divers on our boat: - Multiple tanks had o-ring problems, leaks, and other problems - Equipment was not well maintained, and several people had problems with different things (personally, my regulator was constantly lightly flowing) - I signaled to our dive master that my wife was down to 30 bar...

- Equipment is old and not well maintained. I had to request for a new tank as the o-ring was faulty; and a new first stage because the pressure gauge was not working properly (very old one). Also no depth gauge provided. - I've book for 2 dives but I found out, once we left on the boat, I didn't... More

Diving here was great, the instructor (we had Oli) was fantastic, day trips were awesome. Would highly recommend. The accommodation was very basic, but the room was cleaned everyday, the shower had steaming hot water and the air-con was fantastic. Beds and pillows were comfy, it was extremely close to the dive shop and they give you free amenities, and... More

I took the Tec 40 course with Greg at Kontiki Divers over Christmas. The course was well paced over 3 days with rigour and attention to detail in both the theory and the underwater skills. One-to-one instruction meant plenty of time to review, practice and perfect new skills without undue pressure, and allowed Greg to give me a lot of... More

My hubby and I just completed our PADI Open Water certification at KonTiki Divers. Our instructor Arnel was really patient, professional, experienced and fun! He gave us good instructions on safety and helped us master the best diving skills in a safe and fun way. We finished the elearning before arrival, then managed to complete the course in 2.5 days...

We did 4 dives with Oli, our guide, he was very patient and competent and spotted lots of interesting fish. We did two local dives off mactan island and two further away, about half hour on the bigger boat which included lunch

Visited Kontiki Divers in August last year to get our PADI Open Water certification and loved every minute of it! I was a little concerned about a few things due to a previous bad experience but all my concerns were put to rest with the quality of instruction from Arnel, who is a fantastic teacher. The house reef had some... More
