Scotty's is a part of the Shangri-la resort. I struggled a bit with finding it as I wasn't staying in the resort. To get there, just ask taxi (or moto) to take to the resort's entrance and follow to the lobby on foot - they'll direct you to the beach where the diveshop itself is. The only down-side for me...

I did 2 dives with Scotty's at Shangri-la Mactan. The equipment are all well maintained and the dive buddies were all very attentive and knowledgeable about the dive sites

This was the best diving experience I have had since the very first time I discovered diving in 98. The staff at Scotty's alone had me booking another trip before I even left the resort in Cebu. There knowledge, professionalism, service and ability to customise dives to each individual were second to none. The staff from the manager to the... More

We booked two activities though the branch at Crimson resort. First was was a scuba dive, which was led by instructor Kenji-san. He is very experienced and took care of me, who is a novice diver, very well. He and the boat crew even managed to help me find my gopro which I dropped when I was getting back on... More

Our group of 4 used Scotty's for a day of scuba diving. We chartered an exclusive trip to Hilutungan Sanctuary and Nalusuan Island. Great email communication with Christophe to make arrangements for the day. Dive operation is well organized and well run. Scotty's is equipped for technical diving and rebreather diving. The gas mixing operation was impressive and everyone we... More

Had a good one! Relaxing dive with ex instructor from Scotty's. Colourful and rich life shore...They have big center with everything what you need, to be ready and relax after diving. Only thing what I was sad about is too much trash on bottom and dead fish...

Hi Iva, Nice to meet you during your visit and happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us. You are right, the diving here is fantastic with abundant fish life and healthy corals. We conduct weekly reef clean-ups with our dive staff, and organise additional volunteer events where certified divers take mesh bags and dive for free. Ocean currents... More

We spent today diving with Kris at a couple of offshore islands reached by speed boat. It was really relaxing but also professional, loads of fish including a Titan trigger fish that got a little too interested in us! Would really recommend it if you're staying in Cebu.

Key notes: This dive center is located in Sangri-la resort. Since the area of the resort is quite big, it takes about 10-15 min from the front gate of the resort. This dive center is quite big and seems to be maintained pretty well. Guests are mainly Japaneses. With Japanese-speaking staffs, it'll be a great choice for Japanese visitors. Price:... More

I dive now for more than 30 years and was pretty much every where in the world diving. I can't remember that I saw anywhere a better equipped and a better managed dive center. You can see, feel and experience that this is not just business but that the owner is with heart and soul behind it - bravo guys... More
