Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As a first time diver, I was nervous to undertake the Open Water Certification. The Pirate Divers Team was outstanding, and I couldn't have wished for a better instructor. Mike Khember Pabelonio, my instructor, was highly intuitive and his instruction and guidance was tailored to my specific competencies and needs. I had complete trust in him. My diving experience was wonderful and I can't wait to visit again, to continue with recreational dives. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I got PADI certified with Pirate Divers in Coron. Coron is definitely one of the most special places to do Scuba: great visibility, healthy corals and shipwrecks. We absolutely loved the experience. The staff at the school are lovely and the instructors are very knowledgeable. Our instructor, Lukas, was fantastic. If you go to Coron and you are planning to dive, ask for Pirate Divers and and Lukas!

Busuanga Bay is an amazing dive destination. The Busuanga Bay Lodge is strategically located 5 minutes from one of the largest wrecks and no more tha 45 min boat ride to most every other dive. The Pirate Divers dive shop is great … accommodating both advanced, wreck and open water divers.

Thee were a few stumbles (broken compressor, shortage of O2 for NITROX), but everyone did their best to solve the issues. Their diver masters are safety aware, very competent, but not overwhelming… shout out to flora who gave me 14 STUPENDOULY GREAT DIVES ..

Never made it to Coron Town, because staying in BBL is so easy!

19 memorable dives in 6 days … even a night dive 👍👍👍
I will definitely come back

It was a first diving experience for us and it was awesome. Lukas was the most amazing teacher, explaining everything for us with patience. He ensured that we understood each step perfectly and made the whole experience truly enjoyable. His detailed explanations and enthusiasm for diving made us feel both safe and excited about exploring underwater. It's rare to find an instructor who combines such expertise with great teaching skills, and Lukas definitely has both. Highly recommend for anyone looking to dive, whether you're a beginner or experienced!

My friend recommended me the Pirates and now I am forever thankful.
So well organized, excellent from top to bottom. Amazing dive sites if you like wrecks. I had the opportunity to dive with Dexter who is a fantastic dive master and will show you Busuanga's hidden treasure.
Michelle who is the desk manager will do everything she can to have the best possible diving experience organizing and picking which dive site you should visit.

I had an excellent day's diving with great service from Divemaster Tom, Captain (& cook!) Oliver and the rest of the friendly crew.

I was booked in for 3 fun dives (2 wrecks & 1 reef) plus a refresher dive as it was 2+ years since my last one.

For the refresher dive, I expected the typical cursory rush through getting into the water and a quick buoyancy check. But as we headed to the first site, Tom took us through a complete review of all our equipment, setting it up to dive. When we arrived we got in the water next to the beach and our small group all had to demonstrate that we could successfully do the basic drills (including regulator purging, regulator recovery, mask clearing and fin pivot). This was the perfect reminder and preparation to enable us to go straight to our first dive on a nearby shallow wreck.

Tom's instructions and patience above and below the water were exemplary and made the first dive effortless and immediately enjoyable so I could get the most out of this chance to dive a wreck.

We did a 2nd, more advanced wreck dive and Tom led us expertly inside the hold and along the bridge of the impressive Morazan Maru cargo/passenger ship. What an incredible experience!

We surfaced and feasted on an incredible lunch of freshly prepared dishes of fish, chicken, squidballs, vegetables and rice. Thanks again to Oliver and Buddy for theor hard work preparing this!

We finished with a nice reef dive and headed back to Coron by about 5pm, where a motortrike was waiting to deliver us back to the dive shop, which was a few metres from my hotel.

By the way, my wife also enjoyed some great snorkelling while we dove and saw turtles, Titan Triggerfish and juvenile Batfish from the surface! So this is also a great day out for your partner if they don't dive, or as was the case with my wife, was unable to dive due to recent nasty flu and congestion.

So, hopefully my wife and I can return to the Philippines in the future, in which case we will definitely go with Pirate Divers!

Very nice experience with beautiful diving sites.
Constant attention from the Pirate Divers team to ensure complete confidence outside and in impressive wrecks.

A big thank you to Dyzon, Dexter and Flora my charming 5 stars dive masters.
