0 of 0 people found the following review helpfulWe went to dive with them in 2012 and at that time it was still few months after their start.
Even, they were already very professional and as an editor we dont think perfection exists. So there is room
for improvement. But if we have to compare with other dive shops, definitively they can propose a smart mixt between
the relax, the pro, the service and most of it the flexibility.
Most importantly they dont want to be a"factory" dive shop which they are not obviously. They truly respect the wrecks
and the environment, not like some of their competitors.
During our stay it was almost like we were the only ones, despite other groups were present as well.
We could dive almost all the wrecks even with deep penetration (certification required) with a fantastic feeling of
safety thanks to Louis, Olivier and local DM.
You can read this link to get there http://www.worlddivingreview.com/scuba-diving-the-coron-wrecks-palawan-philippines
and to see what to dive.
Equipement was really in excellent condition, no holes in the wetsuit and both din and yoke proposed for the first stage.
They have adapters for din to yoke if you come with your regulator like I did. Anyway it is more safe to use din with in a wreck.
With their smile and their French sense of humour you wont be disappointed by the frogs. Go fo it!!

Wreck diving in Coron is a unique experience but safety is key when diving inside old boats.
