Well organized and carefree diving holiday

My husband and I felt very comfortable throughout the entire stay on board. Very nice and attentive crew, well qualified care of diving equipment, comfortable cabins and good food. And the crew tries really everything to facilitate good diving experiences. What more can one ask for?

Great diving, great boat and staff, but uncooperative weather.

The staff werevery accomidating to my special diet, Edgar was awesome for repairing my camera housing, Jan was very friendly and professional with itinerary changes due to weather. All the crew worked hard to make our trip a great experience. The dive sites were well thought out and the dive masters were very good at finding interesting reef creatures. I highly recommend this trip!

exceeded my expectations

The accomodations, crew, and food were abulous. The boat and crew meet every need of photographers and divers. You made my first trip to the Pacific fabulous. Had a little trouble recognizing dive guides underwater. A bright beanie ot two different colored fins might help. Massage was awesome. Wish her schedule would provide additional slots. Slots were taken up by a few, Thank u for a wonderful diving experience.

wonderful underwater safari

This was my first (but certainly not last) liveaboard experience. The crew of the Philippine Siren are top row, attending to our every need getting in the water, underwater, and all things topside.

A couple of suggestions: when mentioning the opportunity for a massage, remind guests to share times, on our trip one diver booked herself every day which limited times for others. Another suggestion is to make the dibe guides more distinguishable underwater, i.e. two differentcolor fins, or a bright colored beanie

Great dives and dive service

Dives need to start earlier in the morning! Breakfast and lunch were only 31/2 hours apart. Dinners were at 8:00 pm which is too late for digestion! Snacks were not good, Cheetos and popcorn. Food was overall below average, chef needs training!!! Too much use of garlic powder and possibly msg. Instead of four main entrees two would have been fine and possibly spend more time perfecting. Also, why do you have an outdoor bbq and only utilize it for one meal ? Getting tired of dive boats cutting corners on meals and drinks, 2 places that keep guests coming back!! Charge a little more up front but provide better quality and include wine with dinner!!!

epic visayas dive trip on phil siren-

This dive trip went way way beyond my expecatation.
Dive varieties all around from big marine life - threshers, whale sharks to tiny macro. All were just beautiful. Not to mention having a beautiful, comfy home for 10 days. Service was excellent. Food was delish! Staff were all great! Luv Ph! Luv PH Siren!!

Can't go back to any other liveaboard

My dive buddy just wanted to be on a Siren boat and now I know why. The boat was very nice, with spacious cabins and ensuites and the staff was so great at taking care of us.
The diving was good, including whalesharks, thresher sharks and this one dive with a huge school of sardines.
There were just about as many crew members as divers and they completely spoiled us.
I ended up getting an hour-long massage nearly every day on the yacht.
I will definitely be back.

Beautiful trip with a perfect CD and a cool team

Our trip started in July. We had a very warm welcome on board of Philippine Siren.
The crew was extremely helpful and really top class. Cruise Director Shu and Deputy Ed are so positive persons, they did everything for the satisfaction of the guests. There was even a huge surprise for the birthday of one of us.
Diving highlights are the Wale sharks, the Thresher sharks, the Frogfishes, the Nudibranchs and all the stuff between.
The boat is very comfortable and spacious, food is absolutely tasty and delicious.
All in all the perfect experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday on the Siren. Every aspect of it was excellent. The crew went out of their way to make sure we had a great time, the food was yummy and the dive briefings were outstanding - the depth of knowledge shown was impressive. I can't wait for the next trip.

great trip

Very nice and helpful staff. Dive guides + everybody else. Shue was very kind helping everybody and giving surprises to guests for birthdays and number of dives. great dive briefings from Ed with lots of explanations about reef, fish, ... and much more, presented with humor! Really enjoyed that!
having 3 divegroups was petfect - some years ago had only 2 diveguides on palau siren which was not so good
Food was good but had better on other trips - had more different things to eat and cooked better on palau siren last time - but probably this was just outstanding good. But dont getbme wrong - it was still good.
what you really have to look after is your nitrox availability! This is the second siren trip with no nitrox available!
Felt very comfortable on board due to staff and guests.
Dive sites were great and most of the time easy diving.
Also like the style of the boat very much.
thank you, see you again.

Whale envy

On the recent Cebu trip I got to scuba with the whale sharks of Oslob.
Truly a breathtaking experience which made some friends envious.
But they were not the only feature of a marvellous trip. The coral reef and sponge garden were awesome.
The diving is varied , spectacular and warm.
The crew and procedures were polished and professional.
The food was amazing as was the beautiful boat.
A great experience.
