Thankful that they accommodated and accepted really last minute booking of the 3 fun dives. The half day boat tour which includes 3 dives and a buffet lunch cost 5,400pho, including the 200php marine fee. Equipment are all in good working order. Dive masters and boat men worked really hard to prepare everything for us for every dive. Thank you! They are professional, kind and friendly. Divemasters know what they are doing and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. We took a speedboat since there were only 7 of us with 2 divemasters. Did 3 dive sites and saw octopus, turtles, schools of yellow snappers, nudibranch, etc. Very beautiful!
Fantastic dive center! We spent last 3 days diving with Joel - excellent dive master. Even when we returned to same dive site to accommodate beginning divers, he led us on a different route to see new view of the reef. Staff were excellent - instructions were clear, dive sites well mapped out. Small ratio of dive master to divers - all good. Looking forward to coming back again 😁
We did our PADI open water course with Palawan divers and couldn't be more satisfied. We went by the day before to ask some questions because we were really nervous as we're both unnaccustomed to the sea. They were patient with our 100 questions and took their time. Our master diver Jok was really patient and made sure we stayed comfortable while still positively challenging us. 5 stars, 100%, 10/10 would do it again :D Thanks for everything!
Can’t recommend this business highly enough. Fantastic day which will be the highlight of our trip to the Philippines. We took the introductory course as my last dive was over 25 years ago, and my wife has not dived before. We were paired with in Instructor ‘Jok’ who was excellent, from the safety briefing through to the 3 dives. He was very attentive, patient and great at communicating in English, he really took care of us and ensured we got the most out of the experience. The team, boat, equipment and food were all as you would hope, and the dive sites were pretty spectacular too. What a great day! 👍👍
I recently completed my PADI Open Water Diver certification at Palawan Divers in El Nido. It was a fantastic introduction to scuba diving and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. From my initial email inquiry to the moment I completed my dive log book on the final afternoon, the level of professionalism and dedication demonstrated by the Palawan Divers team was world-class. Filip, who handled my initial email inquiry, stood out from the start with his prompt replies and ability to anticipate my follow-up questions proactively. Communication was clear and I was provided with everything needed to make this certification goal a success. I signed up for the 12 hour eLearning theory course in advance of arrival + 2 days of in-person dive instruction. The excellent customer service made it evident from the beginning that Palawan Divers is a well-run dive shop, which immediately put me at ease as I prepared for my first scuba diving experience. My dive master for the 2 days of training was Pot - an incredible instructor and mentor who introduced me to the wonders of the aquatic world and scuba diving. Pot's patience, attention to detail, and thorough knowledge as an instructor impressed me throughout the process. He ensured that I fully understood the theoretical aspects and practical applications of the training before we ever moved forward. What truly stood out was Pot’s ability to make the learning experience enjoyable and lighthearted at the same time. For example, his keen eye led me to observe the tiniest and most colorful sea slugs in the coral - always sharing with me his admiration of the marine life he encountered. Even during intense training exercises, he managed to inject humor and enthusiasm into our dives. The entire experience was enriching on multiple levels, leaving me not only with the technical knowledge of how to scuba dive but also with a deeper understanding and respect for aquatic ecology - and a strong sense of community thanks to Pot and the other dive instructors. Filip's leadership in running a well-polished organization is evident. I cannot recommend Palawan Divers enough to anyone looking for a top-notch dive shop in El Nido. Thanks to this team, I'm now a certified open water diver with memories that will last forever.
