We made 3 divings with Erol, and we only can say that we loved every single one. This is one of the most serious and profesional dive center we have been. They really take care of everything so they can offer a 10/10 service, the equipment, the boat, the food, the staff... all perfect. If we have the luck to... More

Having read the rave reviews, I hoped that it lived up to the expectations, well it did, it exceeded them actually.

I had probably one of the best diving trips so far and this would not have been the case without Submariner Diving. I was really impressed how very organized, professional and friendly everyone around there were. Their restless excitement about diving is contagious and I hope to be back soon to have more of that! Merci beaucoup to my wonderful... More

We had a great time me and my friend diving with the crew of Submariner. It was my best dive ever so far. And i dived in Thailand and Cambodia. Donald was a great divemaster and showed us big turtles, schools of yellow snappers and a huge bumphead parrotfish. Out of many other fishes. Im blessed 🙏

Hard to review Submariner without sounding toady but well: great dives, equipements in perfect shape, and a great team, what more can one ask? Good food? Hum, they provide that as well. All dive masters we dived with were extremely professional, knew all the sites by heart, and were definitely fun! (rarely laught so much while diving) On the top... More
