Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Excellent dive shop and accommodation on Malapascua island. Stayed in delux aircon room which was new and clean. Restaurant had delicious meals at very reasonable prices. For our AOW course we had Nick as our instructor, he was knowledgable, easy going yet very responsible and did his best to provide us with a great diving experience. We enjoyed ourselves very...

My friend and I visited Evolution over New Years to complete our PADI and a deep water dive with the Thresher Sharks. The resort itself was great, our room was clean and the food was awesome. The restaurant manager Antwon always tried to go the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Along with organising our own off... More

Great dive shop and great prices, with a real focus on safety and an incredible knack for being the first people at all the good dive sites which meant we got to dive with the Thresher sharks for 20 minutes before we saw any other divers as well as the Mandarin fish and also got to Gato Island cave/swim though...

Great place for diving -- both the instructors and dive guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, and the boats are pretty good and stable. Be sure to check out the day trips to Gato island (great diving) and Kalanggaman island (nice dive site and picturesque island). We did a Nitrox course which made a lot of sense for the deep...

Evolution is a really good place for diving, the staff is really friendly, there is always someone here for you, for answering your questions about diving, food, accommodation.... The overall ambiance is always good on the boat and in the resort. I done most of my dives with Dannie a Swedish instructor who is a really professional, good guide/instructor and... More

Stayed for 2 weeks, did some training and a few fun dives. Very happy with the experience. The instructors and the guides are knowlegable and friendly, the visibility was poor because we arrived just after typhoon ruby. Nevertheless the dives was fun, i saw what i came to see and i learned what i came to learn.

I am more than pleased with my diving at evolution. The dives were amazing, with rich animal life and beutiful dive sites. You get good food on the boat when out on a daytrip, and vegetarian options is always made for you if you ask. The equipment is great as well. The guides and instructors are so friendly and helpful,... More

If you equate the best diving to the cheapest diving & are seeking a rubber stamp education, this is not the place for you. I went there to develop my very new Tech diving skills, of their team I think half are certified Tech instructors with vast experience. classroom sessions are detailed & highly educational, nothing was glanced over, if...

I visited Evolution on Malapascua Island in late November 2014 principally to see the Thresher Sharks (surprise, surprise). Whilst the sharks did not disappoint, the experience was made all the better due to the management and staff at this superb dive shop. Excellent service and professionalism in respect of the diving instruction/facilities and the accommodation, restaurant and bar sets Evolution... More

Took my open water course at Evolution. Co-owner David was responsive and provided me much useful info before I arrived. Was really pleased to get Nic as my instructor, very professional but also funny and chill. I felt safe all the time and in good hands as a first time diver. Loved hanging out at the restaurant/bar with decent food... More
