As the title suggests, this is a well-established, friendly and efficiently run operation, and they will do all they can to cater to your wishes. I was able to dive on every wreck in the bay in a relatively short timespan with excellent guidance and advice, thanks to the friendly and methodical work ethic of Olivier and his team of... More

Attentive French owned operation. Oliver the primary instructor and operations manager runs a tight ship that was on time, flexible and his communications prior to arrival were very helpful. Dive masters are mostly Filipino. Randy and Tom were stand outs and the type of hard working folks that typify the Pinoy culture and work ethic. 2-3 dives per day depending... More

Could not fault the day we spent with Corto Divers. The dive store (rooms for rent upstairs) is immaculate and tidy which was a good first impression! We then met Randy who assisted us with booking for the following days dives. Randy was also our dive master on the day and was Great fun and very professional. All of the... More

I spent several days diving with corto divers, completing multiple padi courses. The instructors, Ollie and Kasper are nothing less than exceptional. They not only delivered the necessary course material but payed close attention to my diving techniques, providing me with valuable feedback. By the time I had finished I could clearly see improvements in my diving (e.g air consumption... More

I dive a lot and am happy to say these guys are first class. Great equipment, DM's and well organised trips. They also have great rooms above the dive shop if you need somewhere to stay. Two thumbs up!

Great staff working there! After asking in other dive centers in Coron we decided to go with Corto: they gave us confidence, the rates where quite similar to the rest of the diveshops but they where more helpful and explained everything perfectly. I could adapt my level to the dives and our Dive Master, Amid, was a 10! And the... More

Very nice dive center. Super friendly staff. I did 4 dives and also stayed in the apartments of the dive center. The dives where great, professional including a nice lunch. If you dive and also stay here you get a special price for the room. The rooms are private and modern with a common area and a kitchen. It really... More

Dive with Corto, train with Corto, stay in their apartment upstairs. We shopped around dive centres before travelling to Coron and ultimately came here on a friend's recommendation. Ollie and his team are fantastic - a special mention to Randy who is possibly the best dive guide we have ever had; if you're fun diving ask for him!. The wrecks... More
