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.

My husband and I both love diving, especially in warm tropical waters. This trip to Cebu has exceeded all expectations and can only be described as truly wonderful. Before the trip, we made our usual enquiries by e-mail to Scotty’s at Shangri-La, Mactan, so that we can plan our trip. The response from the dive centre was swift and informative.... More

We inquired for a referral course for my husband with Scotty's prior to our arrival. The staff was quick and efficient to send us the needed answers. The price was higher than other shops but we could feel professionalism in the way their answers was written so we decided to go for it even though we were not staying in... More
