I stumbled across Amphibi-KO while in Coron and popped in to ask for prices to do my Advanced PADI course and was drawn in by Anthony (instructor) and his girlfriend. He was passionate, patient and engaging. We spent 2 days diving incredible wrecks and learnt lots of additional skills outside of what was required (night diving and nitrox). Anthony was unfortunately unwell on day 2 so Lloyd took us out instead and we had a similarly great time.

I registered as a Dive master coming from far away only for the ship wrecks. One dive was not a ship wreck and it was really bad and the visibility was worse 1. No DM discounts. 2. I wanted to pay after I finish the dives since I had now Idea what to expect, and Use my credit card to pay also for the room. and save some ATM commotions. They took my passport & Drivers license & 1000 pesos deposit.... Then I couldn't rent a bike but they didn't care 3. I got the room after 3 hour of uncertainty not knowing whats going on. 4. The hot water shower burned!!! whike i was showering 5. I forget my 100 $ head set in my room after i check out, and they said they didnt find it!!! 6. Last but not least. The DMs were going so fast, we got lost in the ship!!!!!! 7. The only reason I put 2 stars instead of 1 is Sam the frensh instructor who was very nice. and three dives when he was on the boat were awesome.

We stayed for 3 nights only and found it clean and friendly. The Skyline Restaurants out the back was great for dinner and breakfast was what we would expect. The staff were very helpful and we organised the ultimate day tour with them a great day out. Thanks for a great stay.

Arrived at 8am as advised, registration forms had been filled out the previous day but staff had still mispelt names on the schedule board and also couldn't seem to remember which divers were doing refresher courses so it was all seeming very disorganised. All gear was sorted by 8.30am. We then sat in the dive shop (on the floor as we were in the equipment room) until 9.45am with no communication from staff whatsoever as to what we were waiting for or how long we would be there. Finally a boat arrives but as the water is too shallow we had to get a row boat to it. This took another 15 minutes as all our gear had to get across as well. I'm not sure if all of their trips leave this late as the staff didn't seem concerned at all when I asked them why we had waited over an hour in the shop but it was a lot of wasted time with zero communication. 11 divers and gear on the boat meant you could barely move for the whole day. The dives themselves and the staff were fine but overall very unorganized and they obviously cram as many people as possible onto the trips to make more money. The lunch was also not great compared to other trips I've done. Would not go back or recommend to anyone.

Very unprofessional. I booked 3 fun dives and my surprise when I arrived to the diving centre the following morning, 2 Filipino guys asked what I was doing there. I told them I was there for diving and they start laughing and told me no dive today and they continue laughing. The reason was due to two people cancelled their dives. The diving centre made me fill all my details the previous day including contact details that they never used. I asked at reception who was responsible to inform me and the staff at the diving centre said that the French instructor called Sam, was the responsable. They tried to call him several times without success. ( He supposed to be at the diving centre at 8am too as he told when I booked the fun dives). Obviously they didn't do anything apart from give me back the deposit what is obvious. I asked for the number of the French guy and I sent him a text to find out about the situation. He told me that the responsibility to inform about it was the reception at the diving centre and when asked for any solution literally laughed saying words as "I want to remind you that you are in the Philippines not in Europe or America".

Response from Nelson C, Guest Relations Manager at Amphibi-Ko Dive Center Resort
Responded 13 Oct 2019
Hello David (From Spain), thanks for your review which we were expecting to received... As soon as you entered in the dive shop we could feel what kind of person you were, don't say hello, requested so much things because you have 70 dives, and not really polite. About what happened to remind you properly : You were 3 divers for this day for a special destination, early at the morning, i actually received a text from my guests which was saying that they couldn't join for the trip, so i had to cancelled the trip...unfortunately i received the message a bit late due to the bad signal. So we were waiting for you to the dive center to explain to you, and when you arrived we proposed you an other destination. At that point you have got so mad and started to shout and be very unpleasant (hey yes they laughed, it is how react Filipino to those kind of reaction from people like you). then you refuse to dive, was up to you. First advice : as a real diver you should know that planning changes happens, you should also accept anyone in your group even beginners, if not stop diving, this is not for you. 2nd advice : When you are travelling, adapt yourself to the country (especially your attitude), as i told you on the message, you are not in Europe, you can not shout on people. About my presence at the dive shop at the morning, you don't decide of it, and everything was setting up before you arrived, even the new trip instead the other that you wanted.. but you refused, up to you. Best regards, Sam
