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

I stayed at Scandi Divers resort with my husband for 3 weeks back in March and we loved it so much we came back for another month! 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

The hotel was pretty basic, but the restaurant had great food and the staff was very friendly. The dive instructors were knowledgeable and I had great time diving there. There are a multitude of dive sites in the area and you have the option to go on multiple dives each day. Overall, I had a great experience with my stay... More

We couldn't be happier with Scandi. It's become a retreat for us. The staff always go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need. The diving equipment is maintained well and dive staff are knowledgeable. It's a great location for ALL levels of divers. I did my advanced open water here & enjoyed it! Even after... More

From the moment you arrive at Scandi Divers to the moment you leave you are extremely well looked after and made to feel special. The resort itself is nestled in one of the most serene beaches in Puerto Galera with easy access to the local town of Sabang, so you can have your quiet time and then head into town... More

This was our 3rd time in PG and 2nd time at Scandi Divers and we'll for sure be back for more. We love the location as it is away from the crowded more touristy Sabang. Just like paradise :) Very big thank you to the entire staff. The service was spot on in the dining room. Our room was always... More
