Cabilao-NemoLearn to Dive with SiDive and find Nemo in the amazing Underwater realm of Cebu in the Philippines. Diving in Cebu is fabulous with water temperatures between 26 - 29 degrees, beautiful coral and thousands of species of fish. It really is a great place to get your diving licence and to enjoy the freedom that only diving can offer.


SiDive Instructors conduct  PADI diving courses. All dive certificate courses are carried out by renewed PADI instructors with many years experience diving in the Philippines. Courses available include Discover Scuba Diving, The Scuba Diver course, The Open Water Diver course, The Advanced Open Water Diver course, Rescue Diver and Divemaster. Special package prices can be arranged if a customer wishes to complete several diver licence courses

Simon Timmins, 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. I work independently of any diveshop and can therefore give the course at a very reasonable price. When necessary I use equipment, tanks and boats from various local sources. Students and divers can be transferred from Cebu to the divesites for a small fee.

SiDive guarantees prices of up to 20% less than any major resort in Cebu, and up to 70% less than some resorts.

DSCN0229My customers can completely outfit themselves for any type of dive with whatever they need from a wide variety of equipment.  Diving is not just restricted to courses. Most weekends I arrange dive trips to all the local hot dive spots with certified divers. The more on the boat the lower the cost.

The dive sites in Mactan are in very good order at the moment as the Marine sanctuaries and efforts of the local governments to stop destructive fishing methods are paying off. There are three marine sanctuaries within 30 minutes, Thresher sharks are often seen at Tinggo point, there is a great cave at Marigondon, a small aeroplane wreck at 20M off Tambuli beach and numerous other great dive sites. In fact, around Mactan alone there are about 30 good dive sites.

Lets go diving in Cebu!
