Really good dive shop! The boat is very big, the largest of all boats we saw. There are stretch pillows to relax on.

The crew do everything for you, like changing tanks and cleaning the gear.

Lunch is excellent.

Non-divers can join for 850 pesos and can snorkel at one location (the wrecks are too deep).

Thank Daan B

The Fun & Sun in Coron is very professionally run by Maxi and Be. In six days of diving they responded to all our requests and we could dive all the "big six", most of them even twice. They made always available the correct nitrox for the deeper dives at the Irako and "Aki" (27% and 31%). Our dive guides (Bong and Mariel) were very knowledgable and well prepared. The two boats are by far the fastest and best in Coron: When other divers hung still around in the port, we were already diving the wrecks! The staff on the boats was always friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. The renting equipment (we brought our own gear apart the BCD's) was in a very good condition. The highlights were the penetration in the generator-room of the Akitsushima, where I found a valve that still opens and closes and the dive in "Barra", maybe the funniest dive in the world. Congratulations, you deserve five stars plus or six stars

Dives with these guys and had a fantastic time.

The gear is as good as new, the boat is probably one of the best you’ll find in Coron, the DMs/instructors are great.

Highly recommend and probably the best dive centre we have used during our time in the Philippines.

We were a group of 8 beginners and had an amazing day out with these guys.
We had four diver masters plus other boat staff and a captain. They taught us everything we needed and we did two dives. One at a reef and one on a ship wreck. About 12m.
Lunch was included and it was delicious Asian food!
Would definitely recommend these guys.
We were also able to hire one of the dive masters for additional days to do island hopping. They spoke English they well.

Hi Steph P,

Thank you for the great review.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your day of Discover Scuba Diving with us. Group size does matter when you try diving for the first time and we always try to keep the groups small so that each diver gets the special attention required from the Instructors and Dive masters.The food is always a highlight as you get hungry after diving and happy to hear it was received well.

We hope to see you all again in Coron for some more diving, this time as certified divers so we can visit the deeper wrecks.

My first time experience couldn't have been better. I couldn't tell if the boat or the apparatus are better than other diving centers (because I haven't tried others), but I can assure you one thing: THEIR PEOPLE ARE GREAT. They were really nice, courteous, helpful, and fun.

I came in a little bit anxious because I couldn't swim well, but it was instantly removed with how the instructor, Berta, taught us and gave us assurance of the things that would happen; and for that I would like to recommend her. She seems to be tough but you can see the passion she has for diving; that translates to her having a soft heart for first time divers like us.

In the end, it turned out to be a lovely experience. :)

Thank you, fun & sun! Thank you Berta, Maxine, El, and the rest of the team.

Hello Miguel,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of your first time diving experience. Our instructors do indeed love teaching people how to dive and love seeing the excitement in their eyes after getting over a few initial fears. We are glad you enjoyed the time with us here in Coron and hope to see you all again for some more diving on the WW2 wrecks, this time as certified divers.
