What makes Dive Funatics the best scuba diving school in the Philippines
Customers value our training because we stand firm in what we believe in
There are times when we lost our potential customers to other centers because they offer cheap prices with a lot of “freebies”. Sad to say, with our current pricing models, we still do not make a lot of money. We have always wondered how others are able to offer theirs with all the freebies, it doesn’t seem to make any business sense. We have the same costs, we are supposed to use the same materials and manuals, and still, the math doesn’t add up. Something has to give, some corners are being cut in the process, at least that is what our logic suggest.
Here’s a short video about why it is still in your best interest to choose us even if you pay a little extra.

Responsible diving – The heart of ideology
the world is composed of 71% water, 97% of that is ocean
Our consistent conservation efforts without less marketing hype puts us in the forefront of serious marine conservation movement. We do what is necessary, we act without any external support, we spend and produce without getting anything back in return. We don’t just clean up because everyone does it in September, we don’t just do it because media will make a buzz about it, we just don’t do it because everyone in the social media would react to it.
We believe that we should shift our focus more to protect our marine environment. The world is composed of 71% water, 97% of that is ocean, but nobody else seems to care much about it. The world is busy posting tarpaulins about fun runs and other land based activities and most of their bottled waters, food packaging, plastic trash ending up in the ocean! Who would clean up after that?
