We went diving as a group. One of our members was a novice and the instructor with her was amazingly patient. The dive crew was attentive and pointed out wonderfully cool sea life. Overall, a great experience. I didn't really realize the value of this wonderful friendly experience until we tried booking from a Padi shop in Pattaya, Thailand and... More

The place is good. You get what you pay for and Boracay is quite expensive so this place is some more of a upper budget option. I took a padi course certificate there for six months ago and I still haven't gotten my certicifate so I can't dive eventhough I took the course, test and paid for everything. The diveinstructor...

i went to boracay way before the place became very commercial - when places to eat were just simple shacks, rooms were just made of bamboo and there were no roads. you can actually just walk with your barefeet even at noon. Blue Mango gives me back this feeling of nice and easy ... their beach area is wide enough... More

Stayed at the Blue Mango Inn which was absolutely lovely and we also did 6 dives with the dive team. Although we went to a couple of beautiful dive sites and the dive staff was super friendly we really feel that the equipment is in desperate need of replacement; BCD's that could not inflate, no depth meters and gauges or...

Completed the PADI Open Water Course with Blue Mango Dive Shop (they're PADI certified) and had a great time. The environment was relaxed and safe and even though we weren't staying the hotel itself, the staff were happy to let us come and go and run up a tab. The course took 3 days and benefitted from the confined dives... More

Blue Mango might be the best place to get PADI certified on the island. Its moderately priced, personal and Zeke is a great instructor. He is also very flexible. I got certified with them and dived some of the best spots in Boracay with them. Peter is also great to dive with!

We had a truly excellent experience, I did 7 dives in total with Blue Mango, and the divemasters, Dante, Jabbar, and Peter were great!... More

Blue Mango Divers and Inn At 29yrs, its all supposed to be fun and excitement, looking forward to the next activity and entertainment. But in Boracay its all pleasure that was fulfilled. We did not know what to fully expect as this was our first time travelling to Philippines. We have Pinoy friends in Singapore and they all say that... More
