“Best in Cebu” 5 of 5 stars Simon and his team provide a professional experience within a fun and exiting envoriement! I did my open water, advanced and nitrox courses with Sidive. Now when I dive with other people I feel like the other divers are seriously undertrained. If you want to get the best experience make sure to get a boat dive with him. You might find me there with him! Elmo Marquez Visited April 2016

Simon Timmins, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, evolved SiDive as a means for students to learn to dive at reasonable prices with superior service. I focus on matching my customers’ diving needs and compatibility with their personal schedule. Students and divers can be transferred from Cebu to the dive sites.

There is a great cave at Marigondon, a small aeroplane wreck just off Tambuli beach and numerous other great dive sites. In fact, around Mactan alone there are about 20 good dive sites.
