Nearly 2 weeks of family diving including wonderful Apo Reef. Marissa was great from the beginning, communicating before we left the UK and did her utmost to give us a good time. Armando was a great instructor and very patient with me as I hadn't dived for 25 years! He gave us a brilliant time with many varied dives, he... More

Briefly: we were supposed to go diving in Apo reef with DiveCal, waited for 2-3 days due to bad weather, did some wreck dives with them and finally when we were on the way to Apo- the engine broke down!! And the boat had to go back to Coron... Because we all came there especially to go diving in Apo... More

A big thanks to Julian and Wilmer (the dive instructors) and to all the crew of the boat for making our Christmas so special this year! We had a great time in the Apo Reef and did our Advanced Open Water over there. The dive instructors are very professional and we felt very safe with them as they made sure... More

I found Dive Cal at TrAdv and it was a bulls eye. Because there were no other participants for diving day I could choose diving spots by myself. Luckyli one girl from Canada joined us and we were ready to go for 3 dives: 2 wrecks and famous Barracuda Lake. The day was fantastic - we had like individual instructors,... More

I did 2 days of diving with DiveCal. Unfortunately I was also booked to go on the Apo reef liveaboard trip with them but as there were not enough people to run the trip it was cancelled and I was given a full refund of my deposit. As I was travelling in the low season there were generally few divers... More

The next day i had to switch to another dive center because there wasn't enough divers in dive cal. With the other dive center we dove in Erako ship wreck, it wasn't untill two days later while i was at... More

The diving at Apo reef was great. 9 dives was more than enough as there is not enough variety of dive site are a longer trip. This review is not about the diving itself however but instead about DiveCal the operator we chose to go on the live-aboard trip with. The trip is meant to be a 3 night/3 day... More
