These guys were recommended to us by friends who also dived here and are also very highly rated on trip advisor so after a chat with Olivier the manager we opted for them, and I'm super glad we did! The wreck diving with them was so good, an amazing experience. Challenging diving for me (I had 15 dives prior to... More

Corto Dive Shop is first class for any location, but in Coron, being first class also ensures you have excellent equipment and feel extremely safe every moment participating in a sport that can be deadly without careful attention and excellence. Only after arriving in Coron did we realize just how sketchy other local shops appear, causing us to breathe a... More

I stayed here for two nights, and really liked the place. I was planning on diving but unfortunately I didn't end up being able to. I stayed in a private room that opened up to shared bathroom, kitchen, living room etc. It was all very clean, friendly and relaxed. It seems like it would be the ideal place to stay... More

Excellent welcome to the nice and spacious shop. Manager Olivier made us customed plans so we were able to start and finish ours advanced and dive together with my friends even though we were doing SDI and PADI certs. Instructor Josh made even my a bit claustrophobic friend feel safe in the wrecks. We all learned much more than the... More
