We did a one day, 3 dive trip with FDC and we couldn't have been more happy with our experience with them.
Initially I was unsure whether we would dive with FDC as from the outside they don't look as commercial as the other dive centers in Labuan Bajo, however from the start they were very attentive, asking us all the relevant questions and giving us great detail and advice about dive sites. The owner of the shop was very friendly and we decided we were more than happy to go with them.
And we are so glad we did! Our experience with FDC only got better. The two dive instructors we had for our group of 6 were both friendly and spoke excellent English, our group had Han and on our dives he was funny and showed us so many different things, he was great at spotting the wildlife, and was an all round brilliant instructor. The DM in training, Lauren, was also very good, helping us with any issues and a friendly face to chat to!
We went to 3 dive sites, manta point, Batu bolong, siaba bestar. Each dive site was explained fully with so much detail which I loved! Komodo can have a lot of current so it was great to have a full understanding so if anything were to happen we would know what to do.
I can't even chose which dive was my favourite! We saw over 10+ mantas, Eagle Ray, 10+ turtle, NapolŽon wrass, a huge baraccuda, loads of macro stuff, marble Ray, black tip reef shark, loads of shoals of different fish, and the topography and corals were unbelievable! I would dive each of these sites again without hesitation - we wish we could do more, 3 was not enough!!!
I couldn't fault FDC, if you're planning on diving in Komodo dive with them, they're great! Good equipment, staff, lunch, price, everything. + they do eco diving which is helping to keep Labuan Bajo's sea clean... We like that.
Thank you so much guys for an amazing experience we'll never forgot :)
t was an amazing experience for us. The staff was super professional, excellent English and excellent equipment. We dived in small groups and it felts really safe and professional . One of the amazing dives I had and lots of thanks to the club.
It was a bit of an accident I've done my PADI open water course here, but I don't regret that. Everything was handled in a very professional way. 1st day I spent doing theory lessons - watching movies, doing quizzes and also the final exam - not the supper exciting thing to do, but you need some background before you dive. Next day lots of underwater trainings and skill checks - this part was done outside of Komodo national part - I think if you ask you can do it there but there is really no point in paying additional park fee, because there is no much time to admire underwater life being busy with learning stuff, which may save your life when you dive. Last day consisted of 3 Komodo dives (one additional, not a part of PADI course). These were really amazing - we were still doing skill checks but you were able to admire underwater life too. Summarizing I had a really great experience with FDC - Han my instructor was very professional, helpful and was speaking very good English. Email communication with FDC was also amazing - I usually waited less than 15mins for a response to my querries. Can't compare to other schools in Labuan Bajo but this one is surely a good one.
It was an amazing experience! My friend and myself really enjoyed our Open Water Dive Course at Flores Diving Centre and highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in diving! Instructors are very kind, passionate and professional. We had such a great time at Flores Diving Centre. Once again - Thank You!!!
We dived for 4 days in Komodo Islands and had a fantastic experience. The dive leaders took care of us really well. Detailed briefing before the dives. The boat was comfortable. The rental gears like bcd, regulators were in good conditions. Recommended for your diving adventure in Labuan Bajo.
