They are ok, bit unorganized, we started one hour late with shore dive next to the dive shop. Total waste of time and money. Don't take it! Go only for boat dives. Also they will try to talk you into more dives than you actually want. But in general they are fine, more on an expensive side, but rental equipment... More

I did not really was aware of the fact, how tight the hotels are connected, or better depending on Booking.com. Not only that they charge a high commission of 15%, the system is getting qite confused fast, when unforeseeable things are happening.

Situated on the Eastern part of Mactan Island, and nestled away amongst the resorts and other dive centres in this locale, Kon Tiki Divers are a great find. I brought a student to Mactan to run them through their Advanced Open Water Course and was able to organise all of the required dive equipment from Kon Tiki. One of their... More

I did all my TDI courses along with my Boyfriend Mark in Kontiki. We had the best Mentor Mr Greg Maciejowski! We can't thank him enough. He taught us everything we needed to know from good trim ,skills, to learning the theory of diving thoroughly. Honestly speaking he is the best Instructor that I ever had. In additional the stuff...

I took my Padi open-water certificate at Kontiki and had a good time doing so. The facility is very professionally and my instructor Arlen was very good at explaning and taking the time for me to learn. Minus are the shore-dive training-site can be a bit overcrowded by other divers and the toilets could be better. But all in all... More

Accessibility of the place is questionable taking into account the rough road going to the place. Room is spacious but some parts are defective compare to others

Dive centres around Kontiki charge half the price and give you the same service. Kontiki dive centre charged me for taking my camera in the marine reserve and also on local dives.no other dive centre ask me for money to take my camera anywhere. Ricky the dive master is really good. We were the for two weeks and after two... More

I dived with Kontiki Mactan recently, and as the reviews said, the resident dive master Ricky was great - very sharp eyes and he spotted the smallest critters for the avid UW photographer that I am. I thought the dive briefings and the way the dives were conducted were fine, no reasons to complain. When I was there the groups... More
