The gear is in excellent shape and looks almost new. The dive sites are not too far offshore, visibility can be hit or miss but saw a variety... More

I was here for PADI Open water Course , they have great instructors and lovely people around. The dive is a 40 min boat ride to the ocean and you literally see the change in colour of the water from muddy to blue. It was a good experience with the dive too. Sad side there was no corals as fishing... More

I had the best time getting my Open Water at Temple Adventures. The diving is really nice and all the people at the dive center are really cool.

I had my first SCUBA diving experience with Temple last year when obtained my PADI Open Water Certification through their 4 day course. The whole experience was educational, fun, challenging and utterly amazing! The Temple reef is teeming with fish and sea life and the ocean is clear and beautiful away from the coastline. The staff makes every adventure a... More

I'm writing this review really late, but I did my Open water and Advanced Open water course at Temple Adventures in October 2015, excluding the confined water dives, which I did elsewhere. I had a great time learning and diving. The team is a lot of fun and very professional. I also bought some basic gear from their store, which... More
