Super friendly, knowledgable staff. Accommodating to our wishes, felt completely safe. Lunch was also the best chicken adobo I've ever had. Would book again without a second thought.

Being new to scuba I took the SDI open water course with Corto Divers and I'm so glad I did. You learn in the sea just off a calm and tranquil little uninhabited island which is a huge bonus. I personally would have hated doing the basics in a pool when there are such stunning locations to learn. My instructor... More

Having dived with a number of different operators in SE Asia, Corto Divers has raised the bar to new heights! Olivier and his team were professional yet friendly, the quality of the equipment is the best we've seen and the trips were safe and fun with amazing diving. All in all, would highly recommend Corto divers for a great experience.

Competent and friendly staff, good DM s to learn how to dive on the wrecks. When i was there, they focus on small groups. All DM s had our safety first and show us plenty of marine life on the wrecks. Thumbs up to the barracuda lake dive.

Yeah i went for a 2 dive session last Aug 8 2014 with Olivier and Nicole. They had made my dive a wonderful experience. I knew that i was in good hands when they started to ask me questions about my dive experience. Even though i had been diving for quite awhile, i still had a little bit of fear... More

My 2 daughters (23 & 12) and I took the 3-day PADI Open Water Course in early Aug 2014. Our dive instructor was Olivier, joined by captain Nelson and dive assistant/cook extraordinaire Carlo. We 3 were the only students, and Carlo dove with us on 4 of the 6 dives. We found Corto Divers through Tripadvisor (top rated activity in... More

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
