We dived here as friends had been there before. They were good to dive with, the gear ok. I had a failure with the BCD, but there was another in the boat so they are good and... read more

I wanted to dive while visiting a friend that lives in Olongapo. He doesn't dive but he remembered Johan's was across the street from a place he once stayed. I went the day before I wanted to dive to see what was available and looked forward to doing some wreck diving. I was told it would 1000 Pesos since I... More

I spent a couple of weeks diving the wrecks of Subic Bay with Johan's and had a great experience. The dive shop made a big effort to ensure that divers got to see a varied selection of wrecks during their stay and that we could dive to a level of challenge in line with our training. If needed, they would... More

Goop place, with decent equipment and good guide. Expect 1,500 pesos / dive + 250 pesos for Nitrox (not cheap). Use of a fast boat to go on the sites. USS New York dive is a must. The staff is friendly and capable. Only water is provided on the boat, for this price a coffee or tea + cookies would... More

They will frown, make faces and sarcasticaly answer your queries. Waited for decades for our food and other requests. No TV, the one in the room is just for display. When theres no... More

This shop is reasonably priced, provides cheap food (to take on the boat) and a beer at the end. They had enough gear and we ended up going with two other divers. Both dives were WWII wrecks. the first was interesting on a medium sided vessel with good viz and fish life. The second was on a pontoon bridge that... More

I traveled to Olongapo from Manila with a friends. The trip was terrific. I loved the hotel and the food was excellent. The beach, the water, the people, the village -- what a trip.

We dived here as friends had been there before. They were good to dive with, the gear ok. I had a failure with the BCD, but there was another in the boat so they are good and organised in the boat. Saying that, I found them somewhat disorganized pre-dive, getting ready to go out and could be more proactive getting... More
