My girlfriend and I wanted to visit the Philippeans on a longer journey across the world. The first thing that pops into our minds are the incredible diving places and opportunities it offers - so we decided to take our Open Water there.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Visited Scandi Divers Jan 2017, and stayed there for a week. Lovely people, cozy atmosphere and skilled dive instructors. I took an underwater photography course with Roni who works at Scandi, which is highly recommendable if you want to take better photos under water. Very enthusiastic guy, who knows everything about photography ! Would love to visit Scandi again.

We spent 10 days at Scandi and despite the conditions not being the best after a major typhoon, we had a lovely time! The area is super nice and quiet (not like horribly loud nearby Sabang). Perfect for relaxing! The Deluxe rooms are very comfortable, and the view is just wonderful! (I would not recommend the small beach cottages, though....

Scandi Divers was the highlight of my trip. Angel answered all my questions prior to my arrival, and all the staff made me feel at home once there. Their dive shop is well run and the best part is there are plenty of incredible dive spots within a 5 min boat ride. I also recommend you rent a scooter from...
