My husband and I dove with Submariner for one day, three dives, but we wish we had more time on our vacation to do another day! The dives were beautiful; amazing rock formations with swim throughs, my first octopus, a delicious lunch, and a great dive master! Would recommend them to anyone!

Brilliant Scuba Center to start with, relatively cheap. Very Friendly, Very Safe, Very Professional. Ideal for starting your diving career. They don't cuff the theory side, which is good, so make sure you revise.

The staff at Submariner is professional and friendly. Obviously each dive master has their own personality and style, but the overall standard of professionalism and safely was standard. The boats, equipment, and facilities were all nice. The included lunch was delicious! I had a great time diving with these guys!

I completed my advanced open water and did the dive safari with these guys and it was an amazing adventure! Samy and Freddie were very professional, experienced, patient, and lots of fun at the same time. The crew on board was also fantastic and helpful and the chef cooked us yummy meals everyday. Best dive shop in El Nido! :D

Really feiendly team who looked after us really well on the day. Their instructions were very clear and understandable and they made me feel at ease under the water. The actual diving was fantastic with some great corals and loads of fish and other assorted marine life. If i had more time in El Nido i would have booked another... More
