We did 5 dives with Submariner and they were all awesome. The dive equipment was in good shape, the sites were well picked and organized. Our dive master, AJ was great, super friendly and knowledgable. Also very good at spotting the underwater wildlife! They are professional and make you feel very safe. I hope to make it back some day.

My group was one other person plus an instructor. My instructor was amazing and when I got nervous and had a mini "freak out"... More

I did my Deep Dive specialisation with Samy at Submariner. He was the friendliest and most professional instructor I've ever worked with, and his briefing and diving approach made you feel safe at all times - even my buoyancy control improved with him, which was an added bonus! The crew, staff members and other instructors on the boat went out... More

After I did my Open Water course with Ronny 5 years ago I decided that this is the dive center I should come back to to do my Divemaster course.
