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. « less

I spent 7 weeks on Malapascua after the typhoon last year completing my Divemaster training. It was an amazing experience and I'm so glad I chose to do it there! David and Matt provided me with plenty of info before coming to the island and Danny is a great instructor who taught me things above and beyond the scope of... 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

Backpacks and Hand luggage only! Unless you are prepared to cart your bulky luggages over the unfinished New Pier or pay whatever price for assistance by those "porters" waiting at the pier. We requested the Evolution to arrange for the transfer from the airport to the island hassle-free for a fee of ard 5,000peso (4pax) which included the 4 hrs... More

My wife and I decided to come to Malapascua for our honeymoon. We chose Evolution Diving because of their stellar reputation as the best dive operation on the island. Matt and David (the owners) contacted me several times prior to our arrival and always made me feel comfortable. The island is amazing, a must see for divers of any level.... More

A mate and I spent a week diving with the guys at Evolution during August. We had a fantastic time. Experienced international instructors. Super helpful local dive guides. Good quality dive gear and advice available. Boat captains and transport to sites were impeccable. A comfortable balance of friendly, conscientuous and relaxed that made for a very satisfying dive experience.

We were a group of divers with very few diving experiences and we were there to get our AOW. The first impression towards Evolution was the fast reply of emails from Matt. You'll get his reply within 24 hours, usually faster than that. Also, he was extremely patient when answering our enquiry about the accommodation, transfer, dives and any other... More

I visited Evolution for 6 weeks during the summer of 2014 to do my Divemaster Internship. I chose Evolution for 2 reasons: Reason 1: Like most people, I was recommended this place from a fellow diver. Reason 2: They offered a very intensive Divemaster Internship that focused on learning everything about operating a dive shop and included A LOT of... More

I spent the most time here, went shark diving 3x, dived the Dona Marina wreck as well as Kalanggaman. Overall, it was very relaxing and I still think of my time in my fan room, with the fan on at my feet, laying on the bed and listening to music when I am stressed or in the shivering cold of... More
