Our Customer Stories

I am really happy to have begun my scuba diving adventures with Reef Haven. After the Open Water certification it was only natural to continue with the Advanced Open Water course and with some fun dives afterwards I logged 15 dives across 8 days. The whole time shop owner Julienne, the ever-smiling Trish and all the awesome crew created a welcoming, safe and fun atmosphere. The passion for diving was evident and contagious. While I worked directly with Julienne for the certifications I also dove with several other guides and everyone was knowledgeable and trustworthy. The gear was all in good condition and the shop itself was clean and organized. The passion for diving also spilled over into ecological awareness and concern which I appreciated because I believe we can all do better to live respectfully with our Earth, and in this case our oceans especially.

Being new to scuba I am not familiar with any other dive shops but I now have a good standard to gauge others by and don’t feel any need to go anywhere else in the Puerto Galera area. Reef Haven is where it’s at! I look forward to coming back : )
