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.

Diving with Evolution has been an eye-opening experience for me, because I finally saw what a top-notch diving establishment looks and feels like. I did a TDI technical diving course with Matt, one of the co-owners and in hindsight I am very glad that I chose Evolution for this. From the moment you arrive in the beautiful beach bar, it... More

The courses were very professionally delivered and the dive centre has excellent quality, well maintained equipment. The restaurant is staffed with friendly, helpful staff and they serve varied, well-prepared food. There is a good range of accommodation (we took the... More

A friend and I spent a week at Evolution very recently as we were advised to do so by Submariner Dive Center El Nido,Palawan, The facility was beautiful with a very chilled/relaxed beachfront bar and cafe with very friendly staff. If you're a diver, this is a great place to go for nearly guaranteed 3-4m thresher sharks. The Dive Masters... More

My wife and I dove with Evolution in October, 2014. As context, we are recreational divers (AOW certified with 50+ dives in Southeast Asia). The positive: Good equipment, things ran on time and good local guides. The negatives: - It seemed to us that this place relies too much on DMTs. On our first day of diving we were led... More

We stayed at Evolution during 1 week in september, low season. So no competition during dinner our diving. Our natif fan room, made from bamboo, was ideally located on the front corner of the atmospheric small complex, that is situated on the (during high season less crowdy) N-E-side of the beach between a budget shelter and a more expensive hotel....

Evolution looks like the best scuba diving centre on the island and the staff were great, especially Gino and Angel who made our experience one to remember. We felt in very safe hands on all diving trips and the deep diving experience to see the Thresher sharks was very worthwhile despite having to waking up at 4.30am. The food and... More
