It's incredibly important to chose a dive shop with excellent safety standards and equipment when doing wreck dives, and Corto Divers does just that. This is a French-run dive shop (of course they speak English) and not PADI affiliated, which is a nice breath of fresh air. You don't need to go to a PADI dive shop despite what PADI... More

As a beginner, i looked around the different dive shops and decided to go with Corto Divers.. I chose it because of the feeling i had with the staff while explaining my fears. Everything went well, and thanks again to the Team..Thumbs up to Randy and Carlo for the nice food on board.. The gear looks well maintained...

A small but professional team. As I arrived there I only had 5 dives (I did 5 more there). However, they took me seriously and asked me which dives I would like to do. The atmosphere on the boat was relaxed but as soon as it came to diving it was professional. While diving around the wrecks the guide (even... More

I was living in coron for six months, and did my divemaster at Corto the last three of them. (Also the wreck and nitrox-speciality) Better dive-center can't be found, staff is just lovely, and will continue to be close friends to me for the rest of my life. If you want great value for your money, best treatment, the best... More

Dived with Corto Divers for 2 days and did my advanced diving course with Dalila. I knew when I sat down with Olivier after researching a few others that I was going to dive with them. Really professional and friendly. After dive get togethers were really fun too. I also stayed at the dive shop and it was so comfortable... More

Do these guys need another perfect review? Maybe not - but they deserve it! Corto is a friendly and professional dive operation, and a wonderful way to see the amazing wrecks near Coron. I did 6 dives with the team over 3 days (no prior experience wreck-diving) and recommend them unreservedly! They have good equipment (including integrated weights), experienced and... More

We discovered the diving with Corto Divers Dive Centre, during 2 weeks, and it was an amazing experience. All the team was nice and very professional. The diving's conditions during the Open Water were perfect, and the spots were gorgeous. Two weeks of happiness which make us really liked the diving.

Great staff, very friendly, excellent knowledge of diving and local dive sites. As we hadn't dived for a few years we took a diving refresher and they were able to do this beside one of the wrecks so our first dive was also very interesting. The food for lunch was way above my expectations and delicious. Thank you Corto.
