We did our Advanced Open Water training with Rick over ten years ago, and were so impressed by his professionalism and skill then that when we recently decided to become Tech Divers, Rick and Frontier Scuba were our first choice for where we wanted to do that. We were doing three separate qualifications over 8 days (Advanced Nitox, Decompression Procedures,... More

We dived with Frontier for two weeks in September and found them to be a professional, well-run outfit. The dive groups were small and they were very flexible with dive schedules (taking us to Verde Island twice and fitting in the Japanese wreck for us). The dive masters were lovely company! Thank you Rick and team!!!

From organizing my accommodation to planning my dives, Frontier Scuba is really a top-notch dive shop that doesn't charge an unreasonable sum.

Was pretty difficult to find out the right place in Puerto Galera for group of 14 divers and non-divers. Everyone wanted to do something different. Fortunately we found Rick and he arranged everything what we wanted to do. Resort, diving, one-day trip to island, snorcheling for non-divers, golf, barbecue on beach,... whatever we wanted. Also Frontier staff was very helpful.... More

Rick at Frontier was very prompt in replying to my inquiries and very patient in answering all my numerous questions.

My kids loved it and wanted to do multiple dives every day. I did... More

I picked Frontier Scuba based on reviews that I had read and a positive email exchange with the owner prior to the trip. It turns out I was extremely happy with my choice to dive with... More
