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 are experienced divers & had a great time diving with Kontiki from start to finish. The office staff were very prompt & efficient, managed bookings etc. without a hiccup. Dive guide (for us, Oleh, who looked after us very well) & boat crew were friendly & competent & attentive to all our needs. Safety was always a priority, &... More

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

We have decided to book our Open Water course with them and it was just PERFECT. Judith took care of us very well from the beginning and she always replied our e-mails within 24H and managed everything very well. Also, Arnell is an excellent instructor and he made us feel so comfortable and secure during the course. Their facilities look... More

I went without a lot of expectations - and that was good. Kontiki is a "bare bones" kind of place, but I found the people wonderful and immensely helpful. It's nothing to look at, but the instruction was perfect (ask for Arnell) and Judith was great in helping me with the details of the course and travel arrangements, etc.

I really enjoyed diving with Kontiki. Judith was very responsive to all of my requests - booking with them was a breeze. The dive masters were exceptionally helpful (especially Oli). The only mishap was a camera rental not being available on one of my dives but they made it up to me so I was satisfied. I tried the day... More

I recently dived with Kontiki Divers on Mactan and found them to be a professional and friendly crew who are very accommodating when it comes to meeting diver needs. I was staying at the Shangri-la Mactan and was put off Scotty's due to the exorbitant cost, but friends had dived with Kontiki before and recommended I give them a try.... More

I was recently in the Philippines and decided to do my AOW Padi course. I chose Cebu because of its close proximity to Manila where I was staying for the beginning of my holiday. I chose Kontiki due to the positive reviews (that outnumber the negative) on Trip Advisor. Due to the short length of my stay in Cebu, Kontiki... More

I spent a bit more than one month doing my divemaster with Greg at Kontiki's In some of the previous reviews I see that people complained about the equipment, the shop and lodging. I'd like to ad my grain of sand on these topics. I've seen the staff maintain the equipment for a month and they are without reproach. Is... More
