As an instructor on the great barrier reef, i thought professionalism may lack in Bali. How wrong I was, Stuart and Simon at Manta Manta Diving at the ultimate professionals. Safety, fun and experience are all world class. We had a great few days diving the Liberty in Tulamben, Stuart was our guide and has a great eye for marine life big and small. Some of the best shore and wreck diving we have done. Definitely my choice when in Bali!
Fun and safety are two subjects during the trip, however, I think DM should really take care a little bit more on the fun part. Too many paper work for divers to complete. Not much marine life that show up during the dives. There are some dive site which are very interesting, but we can only stay for a short time. I can see sharks and turtle in the last day, the other days only see coral.
Had been planning and looking forward to this trip for 18 months and was not disappointed. Ed and Shu were the best tour/dive guides our group have ever had in years of diving live-a board's. The attention to detail from the hard working boats crew made all the difference.
As a person that has an allergic reaction to peanuts I would love to see the boat carrying an "epi" adrenalin pen and be a bit more careful with the use of peanut related products as despite pre-informing the crew and stressing at the start of the trip I ended up missing two dives due to consuming a meal that had been made using peanut butter.
Fantastic low-key resort with a fun and knowledgeable dive staff. I would definitely return!
Sehr freudliche und hilfsbereite Crew vom der Tauchschule.
Auch die Bootscrew steht immer zur Verfügung und hilft sehr gerne. Nur machen sich die Bootsjungs selber Stress mit dem Abbauen und wegräumen der Tauchaussrüstung.
We planed this trip in Sept 2015, it's so exciting. The wreck diving is so challenging and exciting,
Recently I went to the Philippines with a small group of friends where we boarded the beautiful Philippine Siren with our destination Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park, in the middle of the Sulu Sea. The crew greeted us warmly and showed us to the dining area where we gathered with a cold drink for a briefing. Shu and Ed (cruise director and assistant cruise director, not to mention dive guides extraordinaire) covered all aspects of life on board including diving and dining schedule, where things were on the Siren, and on-board safety.
The boat is beautiful, made of smooth polished wood intermixed with bright white paint and blue canvas. The cabins are large enough for me to do yoga and my stretches on the floor and still have two comfy single beds. The rooms are amazingly clean with priva...
I just got back from a terrific dive trip aboard the Philippine Siren on their 2016 Tubbataha and More cruise. Shu, Ed and the whole crew made every aspect of the trip very enjoyable. Great food, a clean cabin, and spectacular diving made for a memorable adventure. From pigmy sea horses to whale sharks, and just about everything in between, Ed, Shu and Andrew made sure we didn’t miss a sight. I certainly hope to go on another Siren cruise someday. Thank you to the entire Philippine Siren crew!
Dear scuba divers,
Me and my wife joined a weekend recreational diving tour by Eurodive/Dalyan Dive Center on June 11th, 2016 along with some of our diving club members. We encountered an unproffessional behavior by mentioned diving center which might be a vital one. I strongly recommend not to plan diving with this diving center, unless they improve their skills and necessary equipment/training. If you have some feedback by this diving center, I will be happy to hear your experiences with them.
The problem whom my wife faced is as follows, if you would like to continue reading.
First one was a 9 divers planned diving. Even this dive consisted of experienced divers (apart from two 1 * divers), it was crowded. Diving profile was not explained in detail. It was a poor diving plan, at leas...
Die Tauchbasis liegt direkt am Strand und hat alles was das Taucherherz begehrt.
Wir hatten unsere eigene Ausrüstung aber was wir an Leihausrüstung gesehen haben sah gut aus.
Die Mannschaft ist klasse, kompetent freundlich und hilfsbereit - wir haben uns stets willkommen gefühlt.
Das Hausriff hat zwar durch die Korallenbleiche und Dornenkronen sehr gelitten, ist aber immer noch absolut sehenswert und bietet die Möglichkeit abwechslungsreiche Tauchgänge zu machen.
Die Bootsausflüge sind super organisiert, die Bootscrew stets mit einer helfenden Hand und einem Lächeln dabei.
Es findet ein ausführliches Briefing (deutsch und englisch) statt, so dass man sich beim Tauchgang gut zurecht findet. Nach dem Tauchgang gibt es ein trockenes Handtuch, eine kleine Flasche Wasser und die bekannten K...
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
Our reviews allow for users to meaningfully express their diving experience across a series of Dive Sites and a single Dive Shop.
We feel that reviews of various businesses and locations are some of the most valuable benefits that the internet has brought about. There are people that truly deliver a good service and take pride in the work they do and then there are those who are in for the short term profit. It is important to distinguish these businesses and reward the ones who deserve your money.
In the long run, we aim to become a central and objective body that centralizes user generated content and provides an easily usable database of information that will hopefully improve the quality of the industry as a whole and improve the user experience across the board.
