Evolution is a concept based around safe and exciting scuba diving, good times and cold drinks with old and new friends, and a perfect blend of Filipino, Irish and English hospitality.With the paradise island of Malapascua in the Philippines as the backdrop, Evolution Diving has access to some one-of-a-kind dive sites, including the daily cleaning stations for thresher sharks at Monad Shoal. 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.

Veni, vidi, vici, I went to Malapascua to see the Tresher shark. Thanks to the divemaster and the staff of Evolution Diving I was so lucky to see them pass me by. An amazing experience. The dives i did with the crew of Evolution divers were wonderful. Professionals with a smile. I highly recommend this center.

I first visited Evolution Diving five years ago, shortly after Matt and David had started the resort. Back then it was really just Matt, David, couple of boats, a small number of staff, some great equipment and some great diving. I've visited a few times since, most recently just a few months ago and it's fantastic to see how Evolution... More

You have to catch them early in the morning so you are on the boat before sunrise. Takes about 40minutes to reach the dive site

I visited Evolution Dive center in May and had an amazing experience. Even extending my stay 3 times. Very professional outfit, knowledgeable guides and friendly staff.

I absolutely loved our experience with Evolution. Carlo is the best dive instructor I've ever had. I cannot recommend this dive outfit highly enough.

Did my 4 days open water course at evolution with dive instructor mo. She was absolutely lovely, nice, funny and incredibly patient when dealing with my anxiety as I did the mask removal exercises. Thanks to her patience and constant reminder that it's just water, I managed to complete my skills and got certified. The service staff at the craic... More

My friend and I took the OWC and our instructor was Mo. She's really the best and most patient dive instructor, I will admit we were tough students but Mo was incredibly patient with us. She was caring and very meticulous when teaching us the skills and techniques. We never had to worry about our equipments or anything because they... More

Evolution is pretty much everything you would expect from a 5* PADI centre. Decent equipment (although some wetsuits were pretty battered - if you feel the cold take your own layers!), lots of diving (often 4 trips a day peak season), decent divemasters (thanks "Pedro", Michelle and Mo) and they pretty much take care of all the basics of getting...

My girl friend and I have been traveling for 10 months, and visiting Malapascua to see the thresher sharks was high up on our list of things to do during our round-the-world trip. During our 10 months of diving places like Cozumel, Blue Hole Belize, Galapagos, Cuba, South-Africa and Seychelles Evolution Diving still ranks as one of the top dive... More
