My husband & I decided to try this dive centre as they advertised a low season promo rate and we were glad we did. Great staff and team who were detailed, service oriented, friendly and took us to great sites with really easy, comfortable dives. We did a local dive that was great and next dives were at Balicasag and... More

I spent just 2 days diving with Tropical Divers team but I have to say it was amazing. I love the macro world which is in Philipphines so rich. Our dive guide was amazing, he spotted so small stuff which I couldn´t even imagine. I enjoed it much.

This shop was the nearest to our hotel, the Amorita resort. We went to Oslob to see the whale sharks and to Balicasag for some drift diving. We liked the fact that the instructors are all local Filipinos. Both instructors and crew were friendly and helpful throughout and helped make the experience a very positive one. Definitely recommend!

Went on a trip to balicasan island with this company and it was worth every Peso: Small group (3 with 1 divemaster), Great service with coffee, tea and fruit on board big boat with plenty of space and even a toilet

My son and I were supposed to spend a day at our hotel just relaxing but decided to do one dive while here. We looked at our hotels dive shop but they were not open yet and the staff walking around outside did not seem very helpful or enthusiastic. Tropical Divers was located right outside our hotel at Amorita Resort.... More

The staff on the dive boat were also very helpful and took good care of the equipment. I had a lot of great dives and... More

I checked out a few dive shops along the beach, and this one was more than happy for me to check over their equipment. I decided to use Tropical Divers because of their equipment and attitude; it was a bonus that they were also the cheapest on the beach. The four of us dove two days with them, and the... More

We stopped at 5 dive shops along the beach for prices and found Tropical Divers to have the most reasonable price (1,500 per dive which included EVERYTHING versus all the add-ones presented by the other dive shops). We also liked them because it's run by Filippinos. The staff were incredibly professional, with great equipment, and laid back attitudes. JoJo was... More
