Brilliant service, friendly and helpful. Cherry and mat run a great dive center with well maintained equipment along with the great diving here in Cebu. Will definitely be back and will dive with them more.

Good dive operation at an excellent price. Staff are nice, food was good, gear ok. Not much coral after the taifun, but more big fish than on Bohol or Moalboal.

Wonderful friendly family-owned dive shop on the share of MacTan, Cebu, Philippines. My wife and I dive with Matt and Cherrie multiple days and enjoyed all the dives. The dive shop and its team are friendly, professional and definitely knows where to take us to look at amazing sea life. Highly recommended when in Cebu for Scuba Diving.

Ever since I had my discover dive 6 years ago, I was longing for the PADI open water license. Finally I got my time to do it so it was the most important object for me on this trip to the Philippines. I carefully read all the reviews and compare prices for A LOT OF dive shops all around the Philippines like in Cebu, Bohol, Palawan and etc. And I decided to go with Matt.

After a long waiting and researching, I was bit nervous if I’d regret on choosing the Coral Sea Dive. Jumping to the conclusion, it is safe to say that it was the best place and I did my research well😎 I have dived 4 times before here around the globe, yet 4 dives I had here with Coral Sea Dive in Mactan was definitely the best one.

Matt was a very friendly and kind person. He was easy-going that he allowed me to suspend my second day schedule and wait for my sinus symtoms goes away even with a very short notice, but at the same time he has a well-organized structure when it comes to educating me since I was there to achieve the license. He answered me all the questions I didn’t understand and shared “pro-tips” to the newbie! He was a guy that you can ask anything then he will be there! I had such pleasant and comfort two days with him.

I have to also mention about two instructors I had. They were my one-to-one teacher who dived with me. Even though I assumed they work with many other dive shops as a freelancer, they were very organized, knowledgeable and responsible. Especially, Dindo, my second day instructor, was a very friendly and considerate guy whom I’d love to be friend with. And he is very supportive and explains really well and easy, which made my last dive my best dive. I finally knew what I am doing underwater and was able to feel 100% comfort. He even took photos and videos of me with his GoPro and sent me. I was surprised that he did it willingly and it was free of charge since that is usually how other dive shops make extra money.

I am sad that I might miss the boat trip with Coral Sea Dive due to my short schedule. But if I have a chance, this is going to be my shop again! Thanks a lot Matt, Raul and Dindo 👋

I will for sure be diving with Matt (the owner) and Coral Sea the next time I am in Mactan. He has the best rates and hospitality. I had an amazing time scuba diving again. I did my PADI advanced open water certification with Coral Sea and with the instructor Clemens. It was such a good time, I also had my girlfriend do her open water certification here as well.

Aside from courses, Matt can also take you out on shore dives during the week. There is a cool cave dive that he can take you on from the shore. If you are around on the weekend, I would highly recommend you go on Matt's Sunday boat dive as well. There is a good, fun group of people. There is good diving and some good eating and drinking afterwards as well.

Overall, diving with Coral Sea was one of the highlights of my trip. If you are in Mactan I recommend you check Coral Sea out. Matt is a good guy and will take care of you. Cheers!

We had a great day with Matt, Cherrie and their team, along with our fellow divers yesterday.
Our family of 4 are newer OW PADI certified divers and we had had fun and felt completely relaxed for all 3 of our dives.
We had a wonderful BBQ lunch that Cherrie and her team put together while we were out on dive #2.
Following our 3rd dive and return to shore, Matt & Cherrie invited us to join them along with other divers for pizza and beer at a great local restaurant.
