There are plenty of dive centers in Sabang and you should always be able to find something to dive. Nearly at the end of the beachfront next to the Tamarind restaurant you will find South Sea Divers, the second oldest dive center in town. The place is run by Sky, a local legend and fun to be around American. Equipment... More

Super nice people, helped with airport pickup and transfer to the island. Helped me work out a place to stay and kept me online and fed at the Frog Fish cafe. Very knowledgeable and friendly and would highly recommend them.

As this is one of the smallest dive shops in Sabang, you really become part of the family and feels like a personal service. Dive equipment is new and good quality. I highly recommend this dive operator.

We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. Our diving instructor was very knowledgeable and kind. He made sure that the activity was safe and fun. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. They briefed us properly about our package. Their equipment was very easy to use. Overall it was a good experience.
