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.

My girlfriend and I stayed in Evolution for 10 nights, including 2 extensions as we didn't want to leave. The whole experience was pretty much flawless. We had been emailing Matt, one of the owners, and he provided all the info we would need for our stay, and got our booking sorted. We met both Matt and David, the other... 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

Enthusiastic & knowledgable guides, very decent accommodation, good quality hire kit, and threshers on tap. Couldn't ask for more. Very relaxing bar and good food if you want a change from the usual basic beach food, which is also easily found just outside the hotel. Early morning thresher dives are the obvious highlight, but recommend a day trip out to... More

For the past 15 years we have lived, worked, and traveled around Asia. This vacation has by far included the best service, staff, food and overall hospitality of any place we have stayed. We started the communication with Matt and he was very quick to respond with answers and information. He was very thorough with data including fees for dives,... More

First of all, we LOVED Malapascua. What a hidden gem. My husband and I have been fortunate enough to have dived all over the world and we decided it was time for our advanced cert ahead of a Liveaboard in Apo Reef. We came across the threshers in Malapascua and based on Trip Advisor booked with Evolution. We slept elsewhere... More

1. I understood why some reviewers said they are money minded. I tested it out myself. It was the morning of diving day as i arrived late at night. The admin was briefing the rules and regulation to me ( mostly about money matters). As i afraid that I'll miss the first dive, i asked whether i can pay the... More

I recently spent 8 nights at Evolution and enjoyed 12 dives with the Evolution crew after a few glowing recommendations from friends and how right they were. They not only met my expectations, they completely blew them away! The staff were extremely friendly and very accommodating, helping to make my stay there as easy and stress free as possible.

Well organized dive centre and i can say quite safe and comfortable to dive with Evolution. Staffs are professional and good service. Did fours days diving with their local dive guides. Great service they came knocking on our doors early in the morning for our 5:00am dive trip schedule for Monad Shoal dive sites with Thresher sharks :) Excellent boatman... More

Spotless safety records. Industry leading training credentials. Guests from all over the world returning time and time again. These are the coveted distinctions of a world class dive resort. The owners and staff at Evolution are knowledgeable in every facet of diving, yet they are just as helpful and attentive toward their Open Water students as their advanced tech candidates.... More

While I was in Malapascua, sadly I was down with the cold and had informed the management there. As they knew of my plight, they very kindly allowed me to book a final dive (final as it was my final chance to dive before I left) without having to make any payment. They then prepared all my equipment, signed paperwork... More
