Our dive in Davao was ok, just ordinary. Not much new things to see. Maybe they need to protect some area so coral and fish can live and no fishing. Not so good visibility also, just normal.The dive staff very friendly, and always smiling but hard work for them. They never ask for tip, that is good. I hate that if the staff smiling then open the hand and ask tip. Crazy. Anyway not the staff that work for us.

I spent a total of four days diving with CDC. Found them to be helpful and fun. OVerall the diving in Davao is not the best of the Philippines, but the vis is good, the corals plentiful and the sealife is good although not as good as some other places in the country.The prices are very good and if I return to Davao I would certainly dive with CDC again.I was able to keep my dive gear at the shop and each night they washed everything and they helped to get everything dry before I finally collected everything for my flight home.

Since our trip to Davao was during weekdays, we had a hard time finding a diving shop that could accommodate us considering that most only have intro diving schedules on weekends. Otherwise, we will shoulder the whole cost of the diving trip. I heard about great reviews of Carabao Dive Center and fortunately, they had a scheduled dive during our last day in Davao. Apart from being the most trusted dive shop in Davao, they also have the cheapest rates.They were very accommodating, helpful and kind to us during the dive. Highly commendable. I will try their PADI beginner's Course when I have a chance to go back to Davao.

My friend and I learnt how to dive in Carabao and it was a really great experience. This diving center was recommended to us by a friend who also loved it. The organisation and logistic is great, my dive master was awesome too. We learnt how to dive with a strong feeling of security and in the meantime with lots of pleasure! Carabao have 3 boats in really great shape like all the diving equipment. The location is perfect and we could go to different diving spot very fast. If you are french, many teachers are too and teach in french of course.
