Hello 3VOR, I feel the need to correct your unsubstantiated complaints. Sorry for your bad experience but this was over 2 months ago and your memory might be a little fuzzy. We offered to assist you to file a police report but you declined. When I saw you in a bar in Subic Bay, you told me that you were... More

We literally dove a full week with them. I got 21 dives in. About all the folks at Badladz can't do is control the weather... our trip had several days of rain and drizzle, but the folks at Badladz kept us busy with the dive sites that were useable. Great DM in Morris, and Gavin their instructor really did great... More

I was in Puerto Galera for a couple of days and luckily stumbled upon Badladz Dive Resort. I was happy to just be in the water again after 3 years of not diving. What I found was an instructor who had a love for the reef and everything in it. He educated us on safety, the different wildlife and most... More

Hi Geoff, Thanks for taking the time to share about your experience with readers on Trip Advisor. Badladz is passionate about leaving our beautiful ocean life exactly the way we found it when we explore all there is to see underwater. Unfortunately not all companies share that passion. But many thanks to conscious divers like yourself! It would be our... More
