I had a fantastic experience. These guys are better than submariner who has more reviews! Why: the staff, the boat, the excellent communications. My Dive master JR was amazing spotted turtles, 4 rays I totally missed and cuddle fish. Trust me they really work hard to make a great experience. Carmel who manages the shop office is a great communicator. Their boat is big but don’t worry it’s not the kind of shop that loads or over loads the boat! You can decide to dive 2,3 dives for 4500 pesos with gear! The owner is from USA he is really cool and runs a great shop. Oh the food is good so it’s a deal when you consider the price the only dive shop with a proper chef on the boat, not outsourcing.
Me and my wife did our open waters course with Mark. He gave us a lot of confidence and knew how to motivate us but support when needed. The equipment we used seemed new, so we had no problems with its condition in general. Sites were beautiful, but our first dive experience was in strong currents, which wasn't so nice. We were able to see turtles on both days. The corals were also nice.
I went diving for the first time with Deep Blue Dice Seafari today. Since I don't have a diving certificate, I went for the exploration (?) course. My instructor named Don was fantastic. He had a very instructive and pedagogic way of explaining everything. Although it was a lot to keep track on, he made sure that I always felt safe in order for me to enjoy every minute of the experience. I would 10/10 recommend this place for anyone in El Nido! Couldn't have been more happy.
Mark is very professional and instructive. We were given helpful instructions on how to deal with gears with us. We swam with sea turtles and nemos. Food on boat is clean enough as a person with sensitive stomach. Crews are helpful too. Very nice experience. Highly recommended.
My husband and I decided to do the Discover Scuba Diving course at Deep Blue and had such an incredible day! Our instructor, Bran, was super awesome! He was a great teacher and was very patient with us as this was our first time ever diving. It was also really nice because even though there were quite a few people doing the Discover course, each group had their own instructor which made it more personal and easier to learn. By the end of the day, I felt very confident and comfortable with the equipment and am eager to move forward in the diving world to get PADI certified. Bran made sure to point out different marine life such as certain fish, a sea turtle, and some sting rays which was so exciting to see. The whole crew was very helpful and nice and made our first dive experience one we will never forget! I definitely recommend checking them out!
