Scandi Divers resort is a great place to kick back and unwind. It is a quiet bay compared with neighbouring Sabang - most shops, bars and restaurants are closed by 10pm - but I enjoyed this. You can walk along the beach or take a short taxi/bike to go to bars/nightclubs in town. However, Big La Laguna is my favourite... More

Amazing dive centre and resort, extremely professional and I will definitely be back. The people are warm and make u feel relaxed and welcome. I also left my iPad behind at my previous accommodation, Tom arranged it to be collected and delivered to my hotel in Manila prior to my flight out. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

I keep coming back to this place and continous innovation makes a joy to trurn to. The people that work here are the greatest asset. A well run dive centre and improvements in the rooms and variety with a choice of 3 resorts provide something for everyone

This place is very flexible when it comes to diving - you basically just show up and then they can likely schedule you in the same day. There are some fantastic divespots around Puerto Galera and they are only minutes away - Alma Jane (a shipwreck) was great and I was told by several people that a site called hole... More

I just got certified for open water diver by Richard and he was an amazing instructor. He demonstrated all the safety tips thoroughly to me under water and on the surface which really helped me learn. He was very clear and calm.I can with all honesty recommend him if you plan on doing a diving course! In Sabang where there... More

We would highly recommend Scandi not only because... More

My friend and I took our open water certificate here! Our instructor Conan was both super professional and at the same time we were joking and having a good time. We didn't feel unsafe at any point, which is essential when you're a new diver. The place and the atmosphere was so "homely", the staff so nice and especially Thomas... More

Stayed for a few days with Scandi Divers in Puerto Galera. Nice, cheap and clean rooms with great view and beach access. Manager and staff were all helpful and attentive. The location is around 15 minutes walk from the less attractive Sabang area and so you will feel relaxed and secluded from all the tourist trappings. Nice dives with Conan... More

The hotel was pretty basic, but the restaurant had great food and the staff was very friendly. The dive instructors were knowledgeable and I had great time diving there. There are a multitude of dive sites in the area and you have the option to go on multiple dives each day. Overall, I had a great experience with my stay... More

We couldn't be happier with Scandi. It's become a retreat for us. The staff always go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need. The diving equipment is maintained well and dive staff are knowledgeable. It's a great location for ALL levels of divers. I did my advanced open water here & enjoyed it! Even after... More
