My husband and I decided to dive with Submariner because of the positive reviews and it was great. The staff are very professional and everything worked perfectly. The equipment is quite new and the boat is big. I've made three dives with the dive master Donald, who is an excellent diver. I took my open water in February and I... More

One of the main things that sold me on submariner was the fact that they were slammed every time I walked by. I believe in the concept that you shouldn't eat at an empty restaurant for your own safety. I think that can definitely apply with SCUBA. Everywhere else was empty compared to this place with a line out the... More

We were diving with this club for 3 nights/4days from El Nido to Coron and it was a really nice experience, making new friends, diving new places and getting our Padi advance diver and enricher air certificates with their awesome/professional Staff Instructor Sammy. My wife and I really enjoyed this experience. We had 12dives of all types, shipwrecks, deep, night,... More

Well organised, friendly, fun and professional staff. A lot of support and service was given to us before during and after the dive. Better than many others I have been diving with a few persons with each dive master which was appreciated! Only bad thing is that the visibility wasn't that good and it start raining between our second and... More

We took the 4-day El Nido-Coron seafari and were totally overwhelmed by the quality level of the trip. I could spend the whole review just talking about the delicious food and the dives, in particular on the WWII-wrecks, were just amazing. Our excellent dive master Donald and the rest of the team gave us a world class dive experience we... More

I had a great day of diving (after a two year hiatus!) with Submariner Diving Centre. It was a bit disorganized to start, but understandably, there were a lot of people to organize. Once on the boat, everything went smoothly. I did a refresher dive, followed by two fun dives. Cost of the day was very reasonable. Lunch on the... More

We contacted a few dive shops before our arrival to El Nido during the Christmas period, and Submariner was the most responsive of all. We wanted to complete our Deep Dive certification in a short couple of days, and all other dive shops told us this was not possible, given the time of the year and our late arrival on... More

Great diving, great crew. Really enjoyed the diving with this company, ended up doing more dives than initially intended. The different reefs and great instructors made the dive so much better! Would recommend this company to anyone looking.

This is the third time I have dived with Submariners, I spent 3 weeks diving with them on this trip. They are a very professional outfit, I used my own equipment, but from what I could see the rental equipment was very good and well maintained. On the boat the emphasis was always on safety with a comprehensive boat safety... More
