If you prefer macrolife, you can see most creatures on an experienced divers list, or you can get down and dirty in WWII wrecks and immerse yourself in the history that surrounds them. « less

I visited Evolution for 6 weeks during the summer of 2014 to do my Divemaster Internship. I chose Evolution for 2 reasons: Reason 1: Like most people, I was recommended this place from a fellow diver. Reason 2: They offered a very intensive Divemaster Internship that focused on learning everything about operating a dive shop and included A LOT of... More

I spent the most time here, went shark diving 3x, dived the Dona Marina wreck as well as Kalanggaman. Overall, it was very relaxing and I still think of my time in my fan room, with the fan on at my feet, laying on the bed and listening to music when I am stressed or in the shivering cold of... More

Overall good experience, but very uneven. Pluses: - wonderful local staff: the dive instructors, boat crew, housekeeping staff and staff from the bar / restaurant, all the local staff was really helpful and friendly. Special thanks to the fantastic instructors Jo and Alex. Both of them were extremely professional and soooo good at spotting interesting marine life. They really made... More

As a nearly forty year diver and instructor, this is not my age but the time I have spent doing this sport, I have seen a lot of dive operations. Evolution really did well after a slight initial hiccup. Mixing experienced divers with trainees and the much less experienced recent open water graduates is a recipe for confusion and a... More

Went to see the Thresher sharks and was just as amazed by the variety on the macro dives. The guides have an amazing eye for finding things.

One of the most professional dive centre's I have ever been diving with. Tresher shark dive is awesome!!! Gato Island an Kalamangan Island are really nice dive site's as well. The Island is beautifull with friendly people and there is no way you can imagen that there was a typhoon.

This is the 2nd time that I have stayed with Evolution. Friends have stayed with them and took their diving courses, and just like my friends, I have not considered any other dive resort. Although the prices are slightly expensive compared to another high end dive op, to me, it is still worth it. With them, you are spoilt with... More

Evolution Diving is quite literally the best dive center I have visited. Equipment wise, they have almost everything, from 15litres tanks to backplate/wings and they are pretty accommodating if you have specific requests. Like say DIN tanks or right handed valves for sidemount diving. The staff have seen different forms of diving so they will also know how to handle... More
