After your dive, you will receive an online questionnaire, ensuring the authenticity and credibility of the testimony. As the person who filed the review, you may be contacted by visitors of the site; your experience as a diver will be indicated on the site, as well as the date of your dive with the given center.

TribloO (the tribe of the big blue)?

This is a community, rather a tribe, of passionate underwater divers wanting to share a different approach to this wonderful hobby. In addition to Jean-Luc and Laurence, both tribloonautes who initiated this adventure, TribloO is a team of more than 150 test divers who discover, and objectively compare and select dive centers around the world.

Who are the test divers?

The TribloO.com test divers are all experienced divers: minimum level 3 FFESSM or CMAS *** diver or PADI Rescue diver with hundreds of dives under their belt in several different kinds of environments. Each tribe member shares the same values and desires: to allow everyone to safely dive in the best conditions while having a wonderful diving experience. Each test diver completes an evaluation (pre-determined by TribloO.com around our five evaluation criteria) after dives. We contact test divers if necessary, and then integrate the center on the site if the test is successful. When the opportunity arises, the test diver can have the test dive reimbursed for certain destinations (communicated to him or her in advance)! If you have the required certifications and wish to become a tester diver feel free to contact us.

Can I cancel or change a reservation?

Bookings made on TribloO.com are completely flexible; there is no online payment therefore you are able to cancel if necessary. Confirmed bookings put you directly in contact with the center with which you will pay directly, on site or in advance, according to the terms and conditions of the center. A reservation on TribloO.com allows you to have discounts on your dives, up to 25%, negotiated with the diving club, so be sure to take advantage!

Why do some centers not offer discounts?

Our selection is based primarily on the quality of diving centers and not on commercial gestures or an aggressive pricing policy that is often to the detriment of service and professionalism. Each center offers a discount according to its means.

Why isn’t every good dive center referenced?

We have not yet had time to test all of the diving centers of the world ... But we look forward to it! If you know good dive centers, do not hesitate to contact us so we can have them evaluated by our test divers and add it to our selection... if the test is successful!

How does one receive the newsletter?

To be informed about our latest news and promotions, please leave your email in the Newsletter tab at the bottom right of the homepage. You can also follow us on our Facebook page!

How exactly does the diving calendar work?

Click on 'Where to dive month by month' and you will have access to the best diving destinations according to your dates so that you can enjoy optimal conditions (weather, wildlife, etc. ...).

Does the price include equipment rental?

In general, the price includes blocks and weights, but not the rest of the equipment, unless otherwise stated in the 'good to know' section.

How are accomodation selected for each Dive Center?

TribloO partner Dive Centers provides us with a list of accomodation as close as possible to the Dive Center location.

A great adventure

For over 2 years, fins in hand, some 50 divers have played regular customers in more than 500 dive centres, in over 20 countries! Their mission is to dive with them following a thorough questionnaire... There are the dive centres online today, from which you can get amazing discounts on your dives or courses; and those in the pipes, being processed, soon to be enjoyed by you, the Tribe! We are still testing and selecting so the best in diving gets to you first...

Totally independent!

As a guide and advisor, TribloO aims at being fair and objective to the dive centres and to the divers. Testing and selection take place without the dive centre being aware. Dive centers do not pay to be tested and approved by TribloO!

If you know a great dive centre that would fit in with TribloO's criteria, don't hesitate to tell us! Any destination is valid, we're only looking at quality.

Once you've dived somewhere listed with us, leave a comment: they are the best way to have updates, leave feedback on a dive centre... which helps divers to make the right choice!
