The name I could recall, our dive masters. Perhaps beyond my expectation, but I feel greatly safe to dive with them. There are 10 of us, we did 12 dives inclusive diving at the Oslob. I recognised this an upper class dive centre at least to me. I was way impressed, everything was Organised and informed. No doubt Moal Boal... More

The best dive center I've ever been so far. On the people: Very friendly and professional. I really like how the company runs, if you pay close attention to the Savedra team, they have designated people assigned to specific roles (and in color coded uniforms!) ie. reception, DMs, instructors, admin, crew...etc. I find that super organized and professional. Unlike other... More

We only dived with these guys for 1 day but were treated really well and had no complaints about anything. I would dive with them again.

I'm there currently... Done three dives... Will be doing another dive in forty five minutes to Pescador island. Very professional in their set up.. The correct place to visit if you want to dive in Moal Boal. I'd rate their staff as five star.. Extremely experienced. Polite, caring and cater to each person's needs specifically with attention to important little... More

Lee and his staff run a 1st rate operation. If you are thinking about dive courses in Cebu these guys are the ones to talk to. I did two courses with them on this trip and all the staff went out of their way to help out. A big shout out to Phil for his assistance getting me to Moalboal... More

Savedra is all you would ask for a diving center, they take great care of you and of their equipment. I passed my open water certification with them, it was super nice and I feel like I learnt all I need to feel comfortable under the water. I also highly recommend my instructor, Firas, he is very details oriented and... More

I booked a dive safari with Savedra in the middle of march. I transfered the requested amount via a bank transfer. About a week later, I get a confirmation of my payment, but it's around P1200 short. I wonder where the last money went and Savedra ask me to check with my bank. I do and the bank confirms, they... More

You do not seemed too concerned about letting the truth get in the way of a good story, like all good tales there are some parts which are based in reality, lets deal with those first.

This is the 3rd time I went with Savedra and they never fails. Planned this several months ago with my friend visiting from the US. Savedra arranged our transfer from the Airport to the Dive shop and Resort then back to Airport. They arrange our accommodations with Savedra Beach Resort which is perfectly across the shop and very much access... More
