We have been diving around the world, and have had great experiences with many dive shops, but Tropical Divers is the best. This shop is well run, has meticulously cared for equipment, excellent divemasters/instructors, good boats & crew. JoJo & Ian are quietly top notch, making sure each diver is safe and having an interesting underwater experience. It's as if they know what you need or want before you do. We particularly liked that they make sure everyone is on the boat at the end of the dive before they get aboard. Some shops don't do this, and we have seen people struggle with currents, ladders, equipment, etc. Alex is a spectacular photographer, and shares his great underwater shots with anyone interested. He runs a great dive shop, and we couldn't have been happier. Tropical Divers is located in the Alona Tropical Resort at the end of Alona Beach. We enjoyed staying at this locally flavored resort, and it made the diving even easier than walking some distance to another shop. The big resorts seem rather soulless; we prefer some local personality. It doesn't hurt that the diving sites are close, with some of the most beautiful corals we've seen. When diving on or around Panglao Island, consider including this wonderful dive shop in your itinerary.
Wir waren während unseres Aufenthaltes auf Panglao bei den Tropical Divers und haben dort beide jeweils 17 Tauchgänge absolviert. Man hat sich sofort wohl gefühlt und wird immer nett von allen Mitgliedern begrüßt. Vor jedem Tauchgang findet auf dem Boot ein ausführliches Briefing statt, das war super. Auch konnten wir oft sagen, wo wir gerne tauchen möchten, dies wurde auch oft berücksichtigt. Die Ausflüge nach Balicasag sind super. Das große Tauchboot ist neu und wirkt sehr gepflegt, so wie auch die gesamte Tauchbasis. Es hat uns sehr Spaß gemacht, mit Jojo und Ian zu tauchen. Sie haben uns als AOWD und OWD noch kleinere interessante Sachen gezeogt, die wir so nicht gesehen hätten. Auch als wir mal Probleme mit dem Druckausgleich hatten, so wurde immer gewartet und beruhigt, und so konnten wir am Ende dann trotzdem abtauchen! Es gibt auch immer einen Kaffee, sei es auf dem Boot oder nach dem Tauchgang an Land. Die Tauchbasis liegt am Ende des Alona Beach am Hang, wir finden die Lage super. Die Preise sind top! Wir können die Tropical Divers auf jeden Fall empfehlen!
Friendly staff at meet and greet. Our instructor, Ian, was very patient, understanding, knowledgeable and informative. After our 1st confined water dive, he instantly knew small and big tips for me and my wife to improve our skills. Got certified, then we did the 2 dive excursion trip to Balicasag island. Again with Ian as our guide this time, was very relaxed and helpful so that we could enjoy our dives. Prices are surprisingly cheaper than most dive shops along Alona beach. I highly recommend this dive shop.
