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.

This place really is as good as it sounds if you want a professional, well-organised stay and dive trip with the right amount of fun and enthusiasm. One in our party was a non-diver who enjoyed just chilling on the lovely beach and enjoying the Craic House. All the previous 'excellent' reviews set out the great aspects of this place.... More

Did a few fun dives with Evolution over a long weekend. The diving operation is very well-coordinated and professional. The DMs Carlo, Gino and Jojo were passionate and excellent. As it's a full service operator, all you have to do is get into your gear and dive and everything else is taken care of. The dive sites are great. Monad... More

We stayed at Evolution for 9 nights in a Deluxe Room with A/C. The room was nice and clean and I love the notes in the room with tips on how to take care of the environment. Evolution is an amazing resort with the best staff - no doubt! Another thing that I really love with the resort is that... More

I had such a great time here and really relaxed. Even my hubby got into the bare foot living, which is unlike him. The diving is organised really, really well and was very good, even though we didn't see the thresher sharks (never mind). Only criticism is that the food is average and the service can be slow depending on... More

My only regret is not being able to stay longer. The staff is amazing. I took the Advanced Nitrox and Planned Decompression class with Dannie. I found the experience rewarding and challenging. I humbly admit I did pay my fair share of beer fines. The food is great, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are clean and simple. Perfect for... More

My partner and I spent Christmas and New Year here, so nine days of diving on the Island. Transport: The transfers from Cebu to the dive resort were seamless. We were greeted at the airport and within a air conditioned van within 5 minutes of exiting the arrival terminal. It's a 3.5 hour journey to the top of Cebu then... More

We stayed 6 nights at Evolution, a wonderful place to start your daily diving activities. Rooms are very nice, spacious and clean. The entire team was very friendly and helpful throughout the entire stay - same for the diving team as for the Craig House Staff (Great food by the way ;-) ) As it comes to scuba diving we... More

My friend and I made a last minute decision to come to Evolution to get open water dive certified and we are so happy we did. We were both apprehensive about diving and wanted somewhere safe and reputable. Our instructor, Dannie, was super knowledgeable and awesome and kept us having so much fun the entire time. Everyone who works there... More
