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.

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.

I decided to go to Malapascua last second as my plans had changed. I originally was supposed to go to Boracay, but that fell through and I always wanted to dive with the Thresher Sharks so I quickly got in contact with Evolution. David at Evolution was extremely detailed with every question I had. He was also extremely responsive. I... More

We went here on the recommendation of a friend, and were not disappointed. The diving: Of course the thresher experience is fantastic, but that is only part of the story. They visit many other sites, especially good for the macro wildlife, nudibranches, seahorses, etc - the best we have seen on any of our dive trips. Our guides were excellent,... More

i dived with evolution for 11 days and it was great. These guys take their diving serious: from a simple fun-dive in shallow waters to complicated tech-diving, all dives are prepared well. Good briefings, lots of attention for individual issues and safety, dive guides are really doing their best to make the most out of every dive. I also did... More

I started looking around for dive centers for AOW and Nitrox, and what really sold me was the superb communication I received from David both prior to booking and right up through to a couple of days before my arrival. David was a wealth of information, and he also arranged for me to have an economical room next door at... More

The only dive center that I know on the island which cater for CCR / Tech diver. This center is well equipped for technical diving though a booster will help. Matt is an experience CCR instructor and you will always feel organised and got all bases covered when diving with him. Evolution Diving is a well organised and well run... More

A very professional dive shop. I have been Malapascua Island from 1 May to 4 May and did 11 dives with Evolution. The Dive Masters are very professional and friendly. I really enjoy the dives at Malapascua!!

The rest of the dive team were super friendly and always around to have a chat, I did 9 dives total. The gear was in good condition, the staff were great and the service was top level. Most impressive was... More

It was indeed daily thresher shark diving. We had a great DM in Carlos. There was plenty to see.. Night dive was fantastic.. Just chasing bobtail squid was great to keep you occupied the whole night dive. The only complaint I ve is that gloves are not allowed.... And the Anemone stings ... Was nasty.
