About Dive Funatics

We are ideally situated in the province of Cebu where dive destinations are just about 30 minutes away from the busy technology hubs and business centers. We are actively serving the local divers, particularly the generation Y and yuppies working in the various industries in the area. We have tie ups with various Business Process Outsourcing and Call Center companies to provide an alternative and yet awesome experience to their employees.

We teach a broad spectrum of PADI courses including a lot of specialty courses to choose from. We believe in proper training, best practices sharing, and continuous learning from each other to make the best of every dive that we organize and undertake. Our primary medium of instruction is English. At the moment, we do not speak any other language other than English, Tagalog, Cebuano and Hiligaynon.

World class diving instructors and location

Instructors are top notch and I felt extremely safe under their supervision. I felt comfortable around them right away and enjoyed every minute.
I ended up taking additional courses with them.

The reef is breath-taking with an abundance of wildlife and coral. This area is flourishing beauty and no human destruction or disappearance of the reef what so ever.

Some of my favorite moments were the boat dive, night dive, 30 meter dive, navigation dive and “fun dives” where you got to explore.

Dive center is close to food and hotels.

Most importantly I trust them fully and highly recommend this center.

Highly recommending!!

I did my open water and advanced open water licence with dive funatics and I couldn't have made a better choice. Jojo was so much fun and is a great teacher and still very passionate about the marine life. I never felt unsafe and he was very calm and understanding. I highly recommend this dive shop to everyone since they also made me feel like beeing part of the family. I will happily come back.

Awesome people

I'm so glad I did my first dive ever with Dive Funatics. The team's support makes me feel so comfortable in 18m deep. The experience was unforgettable. I will surely recommend and do dives with them again very soon.

Patient & understanding team

They were perfect for me: responsive, accommodating & patient team. I recommend them highly most especially to those who like to try the sport but has issues/fear with the deep. They helped me gain more confidence with the water & I walked away feeling very accomplished...and of course with the certification!

Very Nice Learning Experience and Excellent Service!

Before I went to Cebu, I had contacted a few dive shops, but only Dive Funatics replied me very soon and answered all my questions. So I had decided to take my first Padi OW course with them and it turned out to be the best choice ever. Darwin and Rikka answered my emails and prepared my learning materials bfore I went there, Earl was my dive instructor, they were very supportive and kind to me. Earl was very experienced in teaching the theories and the techniques, he was very patient to me and let me take my time in the water. So if u ever consider learning ur OW or AOW in Cebu, I trongly suggest Dive Funatics to u!

An excellent dive shop

Dived with these guys in the low season. Good setup, Earl was a very friendly and knowledgeable DM. Felt comfortable all the time. Boat crew was good too.

Didnt know what to expect from the area, quite a lot of coral damage but Earl alsoknew where to find the remaining good areas/recovering areas too.

Friendly owner

If I have to dive again in Cebu, I would dive with Dive Funatics. The Darwin and Kae are very friendly and accomodating. They are organized especially with the scuba equipment. Kae is very energetic and encouraging to me, she is also very mindful of her dive group. I would definitely recommend them to my diver friends. The fun dive rates are also affordable thus appealing to all filipino divers like me.

The Perfect Dive Center

This was my first time diving with Dive Funatics and I have nothing but praise for their operations and dive teams.
Everything was better than promised (we had made arrangements with Darwin for a 3 day of diving trips) and every day of diving was a memorable one thanks to their eye for detail.
I have been diving for years and I can say without hesitation that the dive masters were top notch and there was no doubt that safety is #1 for them in every aspect of each dive adventure.
If you are thinking of diving in Cebu contact the friendly professional at Dive Funatics for a memorable dive adventure.

Best way to relax!

Started with some technical lesson and instruction, at first felling trouble with breathing apparatus as it was really quite difficult to inhale & exhale through mouth.

Then went underwater to satisfy my curiosity and as I sinked myself and went down ____it was like WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG !!!!!!!!!!!! The visual like Wonderland.

Suddenly the color all around me changed and it turned bluish -green.
There was a completely DIFFERENT WORLD out there. It was not like the world we see everyday.
There was complete peace and silence, only sound I could hear is sound of my own heartbeat and the sound of my breath.I was so lost that I forgot to breath literally. (breathing through mouth is not a common reflex)
As started going deeper and deeper my ears hurt. Following my diving instructor, I equalized my ears often, until I felt comfortable to explore the deep underwater.
After a While the instructor signed for going up and I checked my watch (water proof ofcourse-- 100M) and it was 40 minute past but felt like just 5 minute.I was so lost and wanted to live in the water forever. Now I can comprehend the phrases
"A FISH OUT OF WATER"

Fun Crew, Attentive Divemaster, Great Equipment and Service, Awesome Dives

I had a great and fun dive experience in Mactan thanks to Dive Funatics. The divemasters and the whole crew were pretty helpful and made me feel very safe while enjoying my dives as I got my PADI Open Water Certification. Was lucky to see a lot of colorful fish and tiny wreckages in the Kontiki reef. I had a tour of the local experience, too, as the Dive Funatics crew took me around the local food area where I got to enjoy the food locals eat and interacted with them as if I was one of them.

Great Diving Experience

Scuba Diving with Dive Funatics is very nice experience the crews are very friendly. A new way to meet fellow scuba divers here in the Philippines that are enthusiastic too. The instructor and the dive master are professional. I say scuba diving with them need not be expensive.
