My friend and I had a wonderful experience at this dive shop! She was doing her OW and I was diving for the first time after a 1 year break. The teaching conditions are fantastic as they privilege small classes and allow for e-learning before arriving.We even got to do an adventure dive together after her certification to the impressive Camia 2 site.Their instructors are too notch! Guillaume and Melchior made us feel safe and excited at every step of the process, and guided my friend to completion in a breeze.You can tell they care about their materials, staff, and most importantly safety. The shop's atmosphere is also very chill and welcoming.Definitely recommend this dive shop!As of early May 2024, the OW costs PHP27.000, the a fun dive PHP2.200 and an adventure dive (outside of your current certifications) or discovery dive PHP3.600. They may not be the cheapest on the island but you won't regret choosing them.

It was the fantastic experience I had in Boracay, I feel lucky I made my mind eventually to do the OW diver course here, on top of that, I even did the adventure for wreck, so cool!1) Location: perfect location just in the beach of S1 (next to the popular’The Sunny Side Cafe’) beautiful view! They also own a cool boat - Toby!2) People: absolutely amazing people, they are very professional and supportive.My coach was Guillaume, the best coach! At the beginning I felt unsure if I can finish the OW course but his way of teaching is interactive and gradually increasing the difficulties, which help me to learn fast. And here I am, got OW certified and will definitely do the AOW next time!3) OW course: I personally feel Boracay is the perfect place to learn.Firstly the diving points are very close, ~10 mins by boat, so basically 2 dives per day and we can even get back and chill for 10 mins and then go for anther, and you won’t feel tired.Secondly, is the coaches are professional with solid knowledge base, you will feel safe to dive here.In the end, we feel here is a nice place to come by often and people are friends and we can talk for non-stop. Highly recommended!

Today's dive was my first one. I'm forever thankful to the guide master and my diving instructor and to the rest of the staff.My nerves got me during the actual dive, but thankfully, my dive buddy/dive instructor managed to calm me down and helped me get my focus back.3600 for the dive1000 for go pro ( if you don't have one)The location is close to Diamond HotelIt is more pricier compared to other diving centres, but it is totally worth it. The staff in NWD are professional, and they will make sure you are safe during the dive.Additional info:There is a locker in the officeFree water and coffee inside the shopToilet is available

He took very good care and was very patient. All the staff here is very helpful and friendly , loved the way they treated everyone and answered all the queries.Must recommend for your scuba diving experience in Boracay.

One of my most beautiful experience in Boracay. It was my very first time diving and never thought I'd have the chance. I was a nervous wreck but thanks to the incredible support of my instructor and all of the staff/instructors/assistant, I had an amazing experience and did it again the 2nd time. I would've done it the 3rd if I had the time! Thank you New Wave Divers, will be back soonest I can. Will never forget!

Did my AOW with Gerald and New Wave divers and another adventure dive a few days later and it’s hands down the best diving experience I’ve had so far. Very comfortable and new equipment, great service and info ahead of time via WhatsApp, friendly and knowledgeable staff all around, good dive sites and briefings. Couldn’t be happier to have researched a lot of different places across the island and picked this one. Shoutout to the team - they’re doing great and take good care of the divers, environment and equipment!

I had my refresher course and my 14 year old son got his Junior Open Water certification from New Wave Divers and the whole experience was absolutely smashing! Julia who was our instructor was extraordinarily knowledgeable, thorough and over-all just wonderful! I can’t recommend her and NWD enough! Will certainly be back for more!

I am absolutely thrilled with my recent dive experience! After a 15-year hiatus, Julia's refresher course not only reignited my passion for diving but also provided valuable insights. Her approach made the refresher fun, turning what could have been a routine course into a memorable and enjoyable experience. Grateful for the renewed love for the underwater world! In addition to Julia's fantastic guidance, the rest of the staff were incredibly lovely and helpful. Their friendliness and support added to the overall positive atmosphere, making the entire diving experience even more enjoyable.

I recently had the pleasure of taking my two children to New Wave Divers for their diving certification, and I must say, it was an amazing experience! Our instructor, Julia, was simply outstanding. My son, who is 13 and has always been fascinated with diving, thoroughly enjoyed his lessons. My daughter, who is 10 and was a bit more anxious about diving, was initially hesitant, but Julia went above and beyond to make her feel safe and comfortable. Now, my daughter loves diving just as much as my son does!But it wasn't just Julia who made our experience so great. All the other staff members, including Marge, Gulierm, and Joanne, were super nice and welcoming. They helped us with everything we needed and made us feel right at home.Overall, I cannot recommend New Wave Divers enough. If you're looking for a great place to get certified or just to do some diving, this is the place to go. We will definitely be back for more diving adventures!

Best Dive Shop in Boracay!! We love fact that the shop seemed super international, with instructors speaking English, German & French.Marge the manager was responsive and helped us with all the queries and arrangement before we arrived on the island, we feel very well informed.The dive schedule is flexible as well as the dive site, there’s 9/11:30/1:30/3:30 daily dives. My husband finished his Advanced Open Water and Gerald been a great instructor to ensure we continue to improve and gets better

What a truly delightful Dive Centre. Friendly, knowledgeable, understanding. I was guided calmly through all safety requirements, and encouraged to make the most of my time in the water. Luca made sure we fulfilled all the exercises in a non-threatening but assured manner. For the short time I was there I was made to feel welcome as a member of their professional family. I will definitely visit again when I look for further certification, and recommend the team wholeheartedly.

Highly recommend New Wave Divers. They did a bubble maker dive with my 10 year old niece. The dive master was soooo nice and knowledgeable. The shop is very organized and even has nice coffee to serve you! My niece felt safe and enjoyed learning what scuba was like. Her 11 yr old friend dived as well and they were great with both kids. I’ll try them next time for a boat dive!

Really fantastic team at New Wave - highly recommended this friendly dive shop!As a slightly smaller dive shop they generally don't take large groups and this gives a much more personal dive experience that gives you chance to discuss your needs, feel taken care of and get the best from your dives. All new good quality equipment, so no worries there. 100% great value.I completed my Advanced course with Luca and additional fun dives with Richie. It was a great experience and I'm a much better diver thanks to all the advice and tips - thanks so much guys!! I saw a few people come to try Scuba for the first time and have a wonderful experience so they are great no matter your experience level - they will take care of you.Marge in the shop is super responsive and friendly, if you have any questions just reach out to her...she also makes a great banana muffin (if you're lucky!). P.s. ask if she's completed her Open Water yet!!

After doing some research and reading the reviews we decided to use New Wave for a few fun dives.The very friendly Marge helped us sort everything out, from airport transfers to organising all our dives. She made our transfers and diving experience very smooth and stress-free.A couple of us were there to do a few fun dives which were all incredible. The kit was all brand new and we all felt very safe and looked after the whole time.A member of our group was there to complete his advanced open water and the training given looked amazing. The fantastic instructor Patrice really took his time and explained everything very well.I couldn't recommend New Wave and Patrice enough! I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else!I would recommend popping your head in the dive shop the day before if you have a dive site in mind. They might be able to move things around.
