What Our Guests Say

"I just completed my Open Water qual at Scubacations and could not be happier! A few highlights: - Transparent and competitive pricing. You know exactly what you're getting, which, as it turns out, is much more than you would get for that price at most other places in Puerto Galera - My dive instructor, Christian. Christian made me feel safe, confident and relaxed in the water. He is clearly extremely passionate about the ocean and marine life, so you can't help but have that excitement rub off on you. He was very diligent in ensuring we met all key requirements of the certification, but did not let that get in the way of us having lots and lots of fun! Additionally, due to him having some free time after the course, he offered to take me on a tour of Puerto Galera, which was such a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget. - Above and beyond communication. Manuel was always extremely prompt and clear in his replies, and went above and beyond in helping me organise transfers and accommodation so my experience was as Smooth and enjoyable as possible. As a solo traveller, having this peace of mind made such a big difference and made me feel much more at ease. Would definitely recommend Scubacations to anyone thinking of diving in the Philippines!"

"Diving with scubacations in Puerto Galera was a wise decision! Manuel is very passionate about diving and about preserving Puerto Galera’s beautiful marine park. He is making big efforts in contributing to maintaining and improving the health of our precious marine life. After travelling for 6 months and doing a lot of diving, this is one of the first shops where I have seen staff collecting rubbish. They also have adopted dive sites to help to their conservation! Opposite Puerto Galera there is such a healthy coral reef that could easily be compared to places such as Sipadan and Raja Ampat. Also great muck dive that we really enjoyed! Scubacations diving prices are very affordable and excellent value for money! Their equipment is top notch. Manuel’s priority is diving safety and this is reflected in the quality of the equipment. We also had the chance to dive with Bunny, he is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and also an amazing protographer. He was very kind to bring his camera with him and take some beautiful, professional photos that he was later very happy to share :)"

"We did 3 dives with Manuel and his team, and if we could, we would have done twice as many! We felt safe and had a lot of fun, both talking with Manuel and diving. In particular, we had the chance to do two macro dives, where we observed seahorses, cuttlefish, cuttlefish, pipefish, frog fishes, octopus, cowfish and more! The electric anemones were impressive. I can only recommend! As a bonus, he sent us the exceptional photos taken during the dives, thank you!"

"Most up to date on safety and PADI guidelines. Manuel and his crew are the most safety conscious of any crew in Sabang, they bring along first aid kits (good ones from a legit hospital and changed regularly) and they bring along oxygen. When on 5 dives with them, Manuel is fantastic, explains everything so clearly, keeps you super informed, and is focused on being safe. He is also willing to take his boat around to more distant dive sites and I saw a lot of different sea life and environments going to Verde Island and Marino Island. The website is very detailed, and he's not going to let jokers on your trip with you. The whole crew was very experienced and knowledgeable. Book with Scubacations for a unique experience."

"As for me who has no experience nor knowledge about scuba diving, Kuya Manuel really explained well the basics of it flawlessly and he doesn’t hesitate to share some of his experiences in relation to the topics being discussed. The whole duration of the diving was excellent, I didn’t experienced any problems as we have guided well by their staff and always check on us every time. Price is also very cheap and for its price, you can’t go wrong with Scubanations. I really recommend this place for those first-timers who want to explore the beauty of Puerto Galera thru scuba diving."

"Great ! There are many diving clubs so it's not easy to choose and especially not to fall into a factory with large groups. And luckily, we found this address and its super nice owner. The prices are clear (1400 php per fun dive, no hidden costs such as adding equipment like others do here), the welcome is very friendly, the equipment is of great quality and safety is essential. Instead, the water is super clear and the marine life is abundant and colorful. This was our last dive in this beautiful country and it is a great achievement to have done it here. Too bad we didn't have time to do 2 dives that day to explore the bay because there are many spots!"

"My friend and I each did five dives here. The price is absolutely affordable and we don't have to join the group. The schedule is also very flexible If you want to see something or have special needs we can discuss it. The instructor will also adjust our dive sites according to the wave conditions and try our best to give us the best experience and see the most things. In addition, he also helped us recommend the surrounding attractions as well as his trustworthy driver who took us to a secluded beach."

"The shop is small but nice. What was very positive was that Manuel was always ready to adapt to the situation, and even if we had agreed something in the evening but arrived in the morning with new plans, we were able to organize the dives flexibly. Manuel arranged the dives so that they best suited our expectations, e.g. with locals who could see every square centimeter with eagle eyes and ensure good pictures. In terms of equipment, the dive shop is not as well equipped as the largest on the island, but it can accommodate 6-7 divers relatively easily, and from what we hear there are plans to accommodate more people in the near future."

"My three friends and I spent a week diving at Scubacations Dive Resort, where we completed approximately 30 dives in total. The prices at Scubacations are undoubtedly the most competitive in town. Manuel, serving as our Dive Master, engaged in extensive and effective communication with us, providing valuable advice throughout the entire process, making our experience highly enjoyable. We visited nearly all the worthwhile dive sites in PG, including Verdi Island. I highly recommend Manuel and Bunny as your diving guides in PG."
