This is my favourite dive shop in Panglao! It's right on the beach, 5 minutes away from the dive sites. Super convenient!

I had some fun dives and took my Open Water (SSI) course with Valm divers and I enjoyed it so much. It was surprisingly challenging! Instead of just giggles and fun dives all day (as I had expected lol) I got 3 days of INTENSE NON-STOP training focusing on safety and survival drills. I'm really lucky to have that kind of experience, coz now I feel completely safe and well-prepared in the water.

Really really loved diving with Valm Divers!

Hi Wayne,

We are glad that you enjoyed your discovery dive with Valm. Our house reef is beautiful with many things to see. Remember, the next step is the open water. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit from Cebu.

Xiexie,

I have been diving with Valm Divers on a weekly basis for the last few months and I can say that every experience has been fantastic.

The team is very professional, organized and equipment in great quality. Would highly recommend diving with them to enjoy the diving sites around Bohol and nearby islands.

It has always been a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere and I have always felt safe with them.

Can't wait for my next dive with these guys.

Highly professional and friendly dive team who made me feel so welcomed. The dive master, Carlo, was outstanding and made sure to check on me during the two dives I did. I would highly recommend Valm in a very competitive business in Alona.

I discovered Valm Divers when I was strolling Alona Beach one day. During this time of pandemic, most dive shops are closed and Valm Divers is one of the few shops which is still operating. I found that this pandemic was a great time to invest myself in learning diving as the spots are not crowded and to unwind myself during the weekends.

Ned was so accommodating since the time I inquired till the last day of my course. He assigned Carlo to be my instructor and I was so happy that he did! Carlo was a very great instructor. He was very patient with me and made sure I performed well.
I enjoyed and learned a lot in the course and I'm looking forward to my next dive at Valm Divers.
