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

I went to Scotty's center to get my open water certificate, which took me 3 days. The staff there is very efficient and above standards in the region. The equipment is also very well maintained, and my instructor was patient and very skilled. It was a lot of fun and I felt safe all the way during my lessons. Other... More

Very professional and efficient. The shop is impeccable, the equipment is maintained and organized, the staff is very polite and knowledgeable, and the shop is located right on the Shangri-la marine sanctuary. It is a walk-in, shallow dive, but there are hundreds of marine species, from different types of coral to a wide variety of fish. The downside is that... More

My husband and I stayed at the Shangri-La Mactan Resort (Philippines) and Scotty's had a desk/area there. Prior to our arrival, I sent numerous emails and got 1 response (very generic that didn't answer my questions) and then no one responded after that. When we were set to go on our excursion, Scotty's was delayed about 30/45 minutes and had... More
