I stayed at Scandi Divers in June 2016 for about a week while I completed my PADI Rescue Divers Course. I had a fantastic time. Scandi Divers really worked for me. All the components are in place to enjoy yourself when you are on a diving trip. My class was challenging, but I learned a great deal more because of... More

On my last trip to Puerto Gaera, I decided to stay somewhere new. I thought I would try Scandi Divers as it is rated No.1 on Trip Advisor and well priced. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. It is at best a 3 star resort on a nice beach with a good dive operation, but a long... More

Its true that we are not the best choice for customers who have a strong interest is the bars in Sabang. We are are 10- 15 minute walk along the wonderful beach from Sabang . The only danger is a one steep set of stairs ( that is typical in Philippines ) that can be a hazard a night if... More

Scandi Divers resort is a great place to kick back and unwind. It is a quiet bay compared with neighbouring Sabang - most shops, bars and restaurants are closed by 10pm - but I enjoyed this. You can walk along the beach or take a short taxi/bike to go to bars/nightclubs in town. However, Big La Laguna is my favourite... More

Amazing dive centre and resort, extremely professional and I will definitely be back. The people are warm and make u feel relaxed and welcome. I also left my iPad behind at my previous accommodation, Tom arranged it to be collected and delivered to my hotel in Manila prior to my flight out. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

I keep coming back to this place and continous innovation makes a joy to trurn to. The people that work here are the greatest asset. A well run dive centre and improvements in the rooms and variety with a choice of 3 resorts provide something for everyone

This place is very flexible when it comes to diving - you basically just show up and then they can likely schedule you in the same day. There are some fantastic divespots around Puerto Galera and they are only minutes away - Alma Jane (a shipwreck) was great and I was told by several people that a site called hole... More

I just got certified for open water diver by Richard and he was an amazing instructor. He demonstrated all the safety tips thoroughly to me under water and on the surface which really helped me learn. He was very clear and calm.I can with all honesty recommend him if you plan on doing a diving course! In Sabang where there... More

We started our scuba diving here with the PADI Open Water course and have since progressed to Advanced and now the professional Dive Master training. We would highly recommend Scandi not only because... More

My friend and I took our open water certificate here! Our instructor Conan was both super professional and at the same time we were joking and having a good time. We didn't feel unsafe at any point, which is essential when you're a new diver. The place and the atmosphere was so "homely", the staff so nice and especially Thomas... More

Stayed for a few days with Scandi Divers in Puerto Galera. Nice, cheap and clean rooms with great view and beach access. Manager and staff were all helpful and attentive. The location is around 15 minutes walk from the less attractive Sabang area and so you will feel relaxed and secluded from all the tourist trappings. Nice dives with Conan... More
