We went to John Boo, U-dive, because it is the only dive center in Kenting where they speak English and there were good reviews in the past on trip advisor. Our time in Taiwan was limited and we we were hoping to be able to dive as much as possible in 5 days:.... But we had a total of only... More

The hostel is cheap and basic so if you are on a low budget it's probably good. It's far from shops etc and you can only do a limited amount without a vehicle. John drives everyone for food together in the evenings so if you are travelling alone this could be a benefit. There's not much to do if you... More

John Boo, his wife Sophie are really nice. It's a quiet place there, a nice little village to stay far away from the noise and crowds of kenting township. No need to wake up too early, just take ur time and go diving, and get a few beers when u come back : that's the way john sees it, and... More

I took the Open water diver course with John and stayed at their place for three days. The diving in Kenting was really nice but mostly I enjoyed a lot staying there, I think U-dive was the best choice. John is a really good host and diving coach and his wife Sofi is just lovely; they prepared a nice barbecue... More

Our young son (8 years old) never scuba dived before, but loved endless ocean on Wii and begged to go scuba diving. After numerous phone conversations with John (the owner), we all felt comfortable enough to book a scuba diving session. John was able to squeeze in a one one one morning excursion. While others were in a group setting... More

Staying some place at the Kenting area over-nite with a dog was not an easy task until I found U-dive. The only question John, the owner had was, "is your dog in heat" no I said, and she is well behaved and rarely barks. Planning on staying for 3 days, I blame it on John, his wife Sophie and the...

Have been to U-dive about 6 times now, and let's just say John (the owner) knows how to take care of his guests. U-dive is not only a great place to use as a home-base while diving, but also a place to look forward to coming back to after a long day of tiring diving! Pros: + Air conditioning that... More

I really enjoyed the time I spent there. The instructor (John) is professional and very patient, I am pretty sure he could teach a monkey how to dive :D. Besides John is a nice funny guy. U-dive hostel is nice and clean and is located close to nice diving sites. In the end we decided (I was with a friend)... More

My friends and I had originally planned to stay at another dive shop in Kenting, but it was fully booked that weekend. So, upon getting to Kenting late on a friday night, they were referred by the other shop to U-Dive. They surprised John, the owner, with their late arrival, but he set them up comfortably without a hitch. I... More
