Although the visibility on all the dives were poor we did see some good stuff and the dive masters were very professional and did a great job at pointing things out. It was great that on all 7 dives we went to... More

Me and my girlfriend did the Padi Open Water course with the instructor Samuel Bergstroem. We've been travelling SE Asia for three weeks now but those four days where (without a doubt) the best. Fantastic location with an even better instructor. We felt as if he really wanted for us to become good divers wich made the whole experience just... More

The group was extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. After not diving for 13 years they re-opened my eyes to how much fun diving is. I recommend Universal to anyone wanting to learn or just have great dives with nice, laid back people.

We did a discovery dive with Ali. We never dived before. The experience was really great and Ali was a great teacher with a lot of experience and patience for us. We would always come back! Price was also fair with 300 RM for the Discovery Dive and one additional boat dive.

We have been diving with this Dlve Center for many years. Just returned from a 5-day dive trip and felt like we just had to share our experience. At first we were quite disappointed to find that Charlotte, the person that was running this place for what seems forever had left. However, Ali our favourite and in my opinion the... More

Efficient. Fast into water. Not expensive at all. Professional diving masters. If you are not a well trained and licensed diver, better go with an easier going diving academy. Boat took us to cloudy and murky waters were we did not see much during our dive. Would have prefered to swim in quieter waters.

I did 3 dives with them over a span of 1 and half days. They were very professional and great service. Thumbs up to Jonathan for really showing us so many things. He used to look under the rocks and really find new interesting things for us to see. The boat was big and spacious. Equipment is good quality and... More
