I dive now for more than 30 years and was pretty much every where in the world diving. I can't remember that I saw anywhere a better equipped and a better managed dive center. You can see, feel and experience that this is not just business but that the owner is with heart and soul behind it - bravo guys... More

We are staying at the Shangri-La as a family so we visited Scotty's for diving. Our 2 kids availed their program which allow kids to scuba dive in the pool. Both kids had a terrific experience with pictures and videos. Great attention to details and super equipment. For those of you who are french, Yohann, the GM is french and... More

We went Deep Sea Fishing with them. Nice boat, good equipment, knowledgeable staff. A bit pricey but we were not charged extra for the beers :)

The facility is awesome, the quality of the air/nitrox in the tank is, without any doubt, more than excellent (you can see their compressors system thru a huge windows and door's glass and inside it's clean like a pharmaceutical laboratory, it's impressive). They do all kind of courses from many different international diving agencies They do PADI, SSI, RAID, etc... More

Hi there, It’s always good to receive feedback from our guests. Please allow me to address each of your comments as safety is our utmost concern: Our dive instructor chose to exit on a beach adjacent to the dive site rather than wait for the boat to collect him as he felt this was more appropriate. Experienced dive instructors, as... More

I was told to dive here by a dive professional. He said they have an excellent air system for tanks, and they are a professional dive center. I was told correctly. From the time I arrived, people were friendly. I booked a short time in advance and still was able to get dives. I have my own gear so I... More

I went diving with Scotty's in June 2013 and had such an amazing experience that I decided to go back for the Adventure Dive and Nitrox courses in June 2015. Taking a course is not like just going for a dive. Learning from the best instructors will make you a better and safer diver. Ideally, one should take dive courses... More

Scotty's dive centre is a great place for learning scuba diving. The marine sanctuary is good for beginners. Our instructor, Victor, is very helpful and patient. Thank you for taking care of us!

Well stocked with excellent and high quality gear. Professional service with detailed information provided. Friendly, knowledgeable, highly experienced dive masters. However, some of the local Filipina girls appear to have an attitude - they don't smile at customers, act frazzled & are disorganised and not as helpful as the other nationalities.
