Had a great time and I would recommend this dive shop to my friends!

Excellent pre-trip support from Lynette with recommendations on lodging and she even assisted my wife and me in booking the transfer to and fro the airport!

Small dive groups with no more then 3 person + 1 dive instructor but most dives were done with just the dive instructor and me.

Intended to do 6 dives in 2 days but ended up doing 7 dives in 3 days. It is possible to do 4 dives a day due to the shallow waters of some dive sites and close proximity of the dive sites. Dive sites range from 10 - 30 mins boat ride away from the dive shop.

Highly recommend Tri bird (plane wreck), Crocodile Island (amazing soft corals) and Friday's Rock (critters) for the dive sites.

Found some great critters on the second day, very pleased with my dive instructor, Kevin. Just chatted the time away between the dives.

If you were expecting butler service where your gear is all brought to the boat and setup for you, you will be disappointed. It's more like diving with friends who will help you, if you need help.

You will have to suit up, bring your gear and walk about 5 mins along the beach to the boat. Bring your own water bottle if you want a drink in between dives, as this is not provided on the boat.

All in all, had a great time and I would recommend this dive shop to my friends!

New Wave is awesome

The staff at New Wave is extremely friendly and easy going. They took time to answer all my questions. Since I have high blood pressure and diabetes, I contacted New Wave about my medical conditions. Lynette sent me informative links and urged me to consult my physician before diving. This was my first time scuba diving. My dive instructor David De Gorter was extremely patient and is a great instructor. Now that I am Open Water certified, I look forward to advancing my understanding and experience in scuba diving.

Super Exciting Experience!!

My friend and I were looking for dive shop in Boracay randomly in Google and just asked every single one that we found. NWD was the first to reply and their respond was prompt and thorough (and found out later that it indeed was #1 on tripadvisor, lucky me!). The instructor for my OW cert was Guillarme (Guyo) and he was super friendly. Although sometimes scary and intimidating but I find him really reliable. Overall NWD was awesome!! Will recommend to everyone who visit boracay

I got my PADI open water here. Staff is really cool and laid-back. Because shop is small compared to the other dive shops you really get a lot of attention while doing courses.

I thought that the dive masters (Dave, Simon and Alex) were really helpful and friendly! Even though my last proper dive was in 2008, I did not feel nervous as they were always looking out for me. We corresponded with Lynette before we arrive and I thought that she is very sincere and organised. Thank you for the awesome experience!

No other place in the world like this!

Diving heaven. These guys will really make you feel comfortable underwater even if you otherwise don't. I'm going diving again and scared that David , my instructor won't be there! Patient , attentive and kind he is the best person I have ever been diving with! Plus all the guys in the shop are really cool! They make your holiday. Even though we had an amazing room, we felt like the dive shop was our home and wanted to chill there instead. I will never ever forget the dives with them and beers after! Most professional coolest shop ever! Lynette also lent me her suit because it gave me a better fit and David his personal mask! He will always be attentive to you underwater and the way he teaches is clear. No one will ever force you to do anything your not comfortable with and will show you cool things underwater. There is no better place than this!

BORACAY ISLAND NEW WAVE DIVERS

Friendly staff although there were some arrangement miscommunications between us. Diving wise is ok, dive guides are aware of what they are doing and they do keep to the standard safety protocols. Dive briefings are precise, but we don't see everything they mentioned. Shop is a little small so you don't really have much place to rest in between dives. Cosy though. For the price, I think they are okay.

N'a pas plongé sur un des sites prévu

Nous sommes passé au club la veille pour régler les formalités, on en a profiter pour discuter des sites possibles. Le jour J, notre moniteur nous a indiqué que le premier site n'avait pas une trés bonne visibilité. Nous nous sommes rendu compte par la suite et avec discution avec un auter moniteur, qu'en faite le site était avec une visibilité correcte et que c'était seulement parce que notre moniteur ne voulais pas aller sur un autre bâteau. on s'est retrouver avec une palanquée qui passée son open water et ils leur fallait des sites bien précis. Notre moniteur était assez rapide durant la plongée, plusieurs nous l'avons perdu de vue. Si ile vous conseille le transport depuis l'aéroport avec Island Star sachez que ce n'est pas un van à tous les coups. Cela dépend du nombre de personne. Nous nous sommes retrouvé dans un bus à l'aller. Pour le retour, nous avions un van avec un autre groupe. Au total 11 clients, pas trop de place pour les valises, des personnes sur les strapantins (pas du tout confortable) et peu de clim.

A good dive shop

BORACAY ISLAND NEW WAVE DIVERS is the top 1 on tripadvisor. I studied for AOW license in this shop. My teacher is Wilson a very nice person. Because of pelagism, I felt no so good, and Wilson help me to clean the BCD after lesson.

It's the instructors that made the dives awesome

All dives are amazing, but diving with awesome instructors make the dive even more magnificent! This is my exact experience with New Wave Divers! My AOW instructor Michael was knowledgable and experienced, constantly ensuring my safety before all dives. Moreover, his good sense of humour never cease to put a smile on my face. Did I mentioned his infectious passion for diving? That's what made all my dives totally awesome!

As for my cousin's OW instructor, Matt, he is extremely caring and always ensuring the safety of my cousin who was facing some difficulty in equalizing. With his tender loving care and careful guidance, my cousin has successfully passed his OWC!

Instructors aside, Lynette (owner) and Emily (coordinator) are wonder women who somehow can accommodate my super last minute requests and my entire trip was smooth sailing! Without their efficiency, my trip would no doubt be a disaster.

So thanks you so much ladies and gentlemen! You guys made my diving at Boracay memorable!

Highly recommend to everyone else to dive with New Wave Divers!

An unforgettable experience

Impeccable service, professional, friendly, passionate about the ocean - we could not have asked for more from New Wave.

We completed the Advanced Open Water course as well as the Enriched Air course. Mike and Matt combined to give us both a week of incredible diving. We saw sharks, turtles - even a frog fish on our last dive - all thanks to the careful planning from the team. Mike is passionate about the ocean and all it contains - the highlight of the trip was the fish AWARE course, changing both our diving experiences for ever.

I do not have a single bad word to say about our experience with New Wave. They bent over backwards to ensure our diving was enjoyable, safe and memorable. This is what diving is all about.
