Stayed in a single room which was perfect, everything has nice little touches throughout. The light could be a bit stronger and a mirror helpful but otherwise wish all my accom in the Philippines was like this room. Nice, clean kitchen with free coffee and tea. Common area is nice although seemed to be a lot of staff sitting and...

I would highly recommend this dive shop. They are great dive planners, professional dive guides and their dive prices are the cheapest compared to other dive shops in Dauin. They will really cater your needs, they really takes care of your dive equipments especially if you have your own dive gears. The boat crews are really willing to assist you....

Stayed 8 nights in nip hut with fan and it was wonderful! Did 19 dives and each dive was great. Meko is an excellent DM. He can find all the small critters. He has a lot of patience for U/W photographers! I forgot a sweatshirt in the hut and they mailed it to me in Cebu free of charge. Outstanding...

My boyfriend and I would highly recommend taking your Open Water certificate here! We felt welcomed, and the owners, dms and instructor (skud ud til Carina) were kind and lovely people. The dives in Apo are something you wouldn't miss if you do stay here!

Spent about 10 days diving with the guys at Bongo Bongo and have nothing but good words for them. Starting from the owner who is just cool as to the divemasters and office staff, everyone seems to be so happy to be working there. I am a professional diver and an underwater photographer so I understand i can be catalogued...

Love the community there. Friendly and welcoming. Dives around Apo Island was amazing! It is like an underwater garden. Diving rates are really cheap. No problems with the equipment. The rooms are comfortable too. Meals-wise, have to take a short walk out. At the public market, people are really friendly too! Will be back! :)

Me and my boyfriend went there to do our open water course while we were travelling Asia. It has been the best experience of our travel. We were going to do it in three days and finally we stayed there for a week, every morning we woke up saying " we are staying one more day". Our instructor Ricardo was...

We didn't stay with them, but did all of our dives at the dive center. Unfortunately there were not boats going to apo island due to weather (4days) but we went on shore diving with them ( 5 ) and it was great! Miko our dive leader was amazing in finding the macro life to picture, equipment was great, staff...

Did not stay here (backpacker types mostly), but did an good day trip (3 dives) to Apo island. Karina, Jacob & team were very professional & safe in their approach to diving. Very good dive briefings given, boat large & spacious, with lunch thrown in too- what's not to like? Would definitely go back & dive with them again (though...

I came here as a single traveler which wasn't a problem at all. The staff is very welcoming and includes you in every thing. I was a bit nervous about the scuba diving since it's been a few years since my last dive, Anthony from France went through a refreshment course with me and he acted calm all the way....
