They ensure that a certification is not just done for the sake of getting a certificate and also made sure that I understood every nook and corner of diving that a diver must know. The way they teach makes you fall in love with the art called diving. I'm thankful for... More

The owner/manager of the dive centre is very professional, he checked all our certification and also evaluated our level of experience in order to recommend the... More

We have done 7 dives each, 6 of them on boat trips which was always different place, chosen according to conditions and preferences. All instructors, who we were diving with, were nice, friendly, helpful and made our stay on Maldives and dives perfect. Thank you!

It whetted my appetite to try a scuba and the brilliant staff there arranged for me to do a Discover Scuba dive the following morning - the explanations were very clear, easy to follow, reassuring....

The Divers Lodge is well worth your money. The instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful, the packages offered are very reasonably priced, and the place is easily reachable. You can do PADI courses, single dives, snorkeling, all day boat trips (including snorkeling, food), etc. all for inexpensive prices. The island, Vilingili, where the Divers Lodge is located, is a quick,... More
