Hi celine,

I learned diving in coron, and had a great pleasure with Sangat Island resort. the dive instructors are very helpful , they will really take care of ou. It's a bit pricey thou compared to the rest found in the town. If you haven't reserved for accomodation yet, I recommend sangat as a place to stay. It is serene and peaceful, the only drawback is that there is no electricity in the morning but i guess its part of its charm.

be sure to check out the barracuda lake as well as the various shipwrecks.

i wish i could join you in your travel. sigh! Hope you have a great time

Amphibiko is a nice shop. They have good gear, almost new and serviced often. I believe it is Japanese-owned but their dive masters are seasoned local divers. :)

Great :) glad to be of help. You'll enjoy Coron if you like wrecks, mostly Japanese vessels. Town is very idyllic. It is a backpacker's destination. If you prefer the world class resorts you can also visit El Nido.

Have fun!
