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.

We had organised our dives with them before we even left home and yes, it is of high standards. We took our own dive gear but what we saw was great. We had 1 DM for the two of us Pity that nobody seems to take care of the rubbish in the Marine Conservation areas as there is a lot... More

Dear Trouble 1312, Thank you for considering us as the best dive center you have come across. It is always nice to receive positive and constructive feedback regarding our operation. As you mentioned, we constantly renew our equipment in order to insure guest's comfort and meet 5 stars expectations. Our DM to guests ratio is always low and whenever possible... More

I have nothing but praise for Scottys Dive Centre which is based in the Shangri La hotels grounds. To be fair I have never dived with any of the other centres but have with others in the Philippines, Scottys is a very friendly, accommodating and professional dive centre. The sites we dived were absolutely great and a shame we didn't... More

Great instructor, as you'd expect from a scuba centre inside the Shangri-La hotel, It's expensive, but again as you'd expect from shangri-la. Just over 8k php They offer a full service, basic beginners through to certifications and multi-dives. Hiring an underwater camera was 1000PHP! Bring your own if you can. Lots of life to see, corals, fish big and small.... More

Great service! Great staff! Great resort! Awesome dive locations! I had such a great time diving with the great instructors here. Highly recommended! Only minus is the food of the Shangri La resort. Overpriced and not very good.
