I was with my sister last week and we tried the discovery scuba diving and it was so awesome. The staff are so friendly and we learned a lot from them. Beginner friendly and worth the price. We did 3 dives and all of them are awesome. I might book again with them for a course. Kudos to submariner diving center! :)

There is only one word to describe our experience at the Submariner: Excellent! We could easily say that we had the best diving experience ever, and we have been to many other places around the world previously. First of all they had very good organizational skills. Diving equipments were faultless. Food we were provided on the boats was delicious. But most importantly, they had excellent dive masters who all followed the safety rules appropriately. We mostly did our dives with AJ who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He also had a very good sense of humour and was an absolute delight to dive with.

In short, if you want to get your best diving experience in incredibly rich reefs teeming both with small and big reef fish, as well as macro diving, go to the Submariner Dive Club.

Thank you to Sammy, AJ and the whole team!

We had a full day of signing including three dives. We hadn’t been diving for about 11 years and the instructor we had was very thorough going through all the equipment. We felt very safe and we had a lovely day. We had a smaller group (you can choose) and it was fantastic, you got a lot of attention.
Thank you submariner for making this an unforgettable experience!

Did 3 dives with Submariner. Boat and equipments were alright, DM also provided very clear briefings with safety being the utmost concern which is really important.

Lunch was provided and was delicious, which is important to me too.

Boat was also packed up with as many people possible, so if you are looking for a small group to dive with, they may not be the most ideal dive shop.
It was also unfortunate all 3 dives we did was pretty disappointing as there was absolutely nothing to see - the sites we went has half of the corals dead, but that's Mother Nature at play, although with more extensive knowledge of the sites, this could have been avoided.

I did two day trips out of El Nido and a five day / four night dive safari from El Nido to Coron and return. All a total of 16 dives. Every dive was very well organised and safely supervised. The food onboard was excellent.
