Spent New Year’s Eve on deep blue dive safari’s boat with 3 absolutely perfect dives and I can honestly say that this is my favourite company I’ve ever dove with!! Great boat, the most amazing crew, and a phenomenal on board fresh lunch. Seriously, I can’t recommend them enough. The atmosphere was so fun between everyone onboard and the crew— something special. We had Mark as our instructor and we adored him, can’t express in words just how kind and enthusiastic he was, he rocked. Just an awesome company, you can’t go wrong with them :)

After going to almost every dive shop, I found that deep blue had the best price and was going to the best spots. My dive guide was a relaxed guy that was very thorough and careful. There were maybe 10 divers on board and the largest group was three divers to one guide, my group only had one other guy! They try to match you with equal skill level so while we all went to the same sites everyone did a different dive. They look after you well and the equipment was fantastic. I highly recommend.

The staff was professional, competent and friendly. From the booking process to the dives itself, all was very convenient. Our captain and our Divemaster Jayr were teaching us also lots about the surrounding islands. Jayr had an eye on my newly OW certified boyfriend and looked out for any tiny and bigger creatures. They provided snacks and coffee/tea/water at our afternoon dives. Only thing to criticize - since they just moved to another location in town - was that there was no space to rinse the own gear or shower quickly after the dive.
All in all strongly recommended.

I had an awesome dive with Deep Blue. The crew of the boat was more than helpful and provided a delicious meal. The boat visited three sites that provided different sea life and animals. I saw schools of yellow fin snappers, barracudas,hawksbill and green turtles. Romy the Divemaster was knowledgeable and spotted all the fish and sea life. If your looking for a well established, professional, and awesome dive shop to dive with dive with Deep Blue Dive Seafari!

We came to El Nido and knew we wanted to learn to dive. After much research, we decided to go to Deep Blue and we are thrilled that we made the right decision! It is a fantastic operation. Sam was our dive master and he offered clear, detailed instruction. At one point I was a bit nervous underwater, he gently took my hand to reassure me and in a minute I was calm and back to exploring. We ended up with our PADI certification and had 2 terrific days on the boat

I booked three days in advanced ! Then, the day that I was supposed to dive , they said that their “engine was broken” . I don’t buy it , they just don’t have more divers and just told me that , actually the manager or the instructor never open the shop , just the secretary showed up , never called me, at least they took me to another dive center , so I won’t recommend

We went there for a day of fun diving and got the divecenter recommended by our hotel host. As passionate divers we were looking forward to the day.
Unfortunately their gear wasn’t in a very good shape- both regulator and octopus my boyfriend used had water coming in whilst breathing and the spare octopus first didn’t work too. The inflator of my west leaked too. Also some of the fins were really old.
I twice had only 175-180bar in my tanks and they didn’t have spare ones.
Another negative thing was that they didn’t care for a buddy check and were in a hurry to get us into the water - so we had to tell them that we wanted to check the gear quickly (which was good as the octopus didn’t work..)

I guess their regular boat - which is on the pictures and we got the tanks from it- was damaged cause we were in an older and smaller one.

Our guide did good briefing and guiding and the food was good too.

I think they should invest in some new fins (they also had good ones!), in revisions of the regulators and should take the safety buddy check seriously.

First of all, thank you for you review and feedback. In the second place i would like to apologize as we couldnt reach your expectations (neither ours) due to some problems with our boat engine and the need to rent a smaller boat without dive compressor, im sorry we didnt sort the problem out as fast as we wished but being El Nido placed in a remote area logistics can be complicated sometimes, luckily and since a few days ago our boat is back to the water and the engine was totally rebuilt. Regards the equipment we already noted a small part of our BCD and fins need to be replaced and we are already working on it, our regulators are inspected and cleaned weekly, however and even tho is a rare case, there is always a chance one of the 21 we have may present a problem at anytime, i can assure you we do our best to guarantee the safety of our divers, being the only shop including dive computers in the equipment for all our divers. As a certified diver, a proper buddy check is your responsibility, however we always encourage our divers and, especially, students to do it, the last weeks we had strong winds in the area, therefore could be difficult for the captains of the boat to hold the boat position on the drop off, that could be the reason why our staff was in a hurry to jump, in any case, is not an excuse to skip the buddy check so i will make sure to reinforce its importance to the staff. Thanks again for your feedback and glad that, even tho some little problem didnt let us reach your expectations, you finally enjoy of the day and dives, we take note and we wil make sure we will improve your experience for your next

I made my padi open water course here. It was just great! My dive instructor Mark did a great job! He teached me the needed skills very good and he could also help me lose all my fear. Deep blue dive seafari takes the course seriously and wantd to make sure you get everything. So after my course here I feel save while diving and I know I have been teached all the needed skills.

I started the course in Deep Blue , a day after i was involved in a bike accident so i got injured in my arms and my feet .
I thought it would be difficult for me to make the dives like that , but lucky me , I chose the perfect diving school ! Greg , my diving instructor and probably the best one in the Philippines , took care of everything for me , his wife is a nurse so together they cleaned my wounds and gave me a special cream and waterproof bandages .
Jose and his lovely wife Diana , asked from the chef on the diving boat to cook vegan food especially for my friend and I .
Deep blue it's a super professional diving school that makes the diving safe , easy and really fun !
I highly recommend it and for sure I'll visit there again !
Thank you very much !
Lior .

The guys at Seafari were amazingly friendly. This was only my second time diving but they made it super easy and I felt very safe. The best part, though, was the great vibe going on in this awesome team. Thanks a lot for everything Seafari, we will surely be back for one the Coron expeditions. Cheers!
