I spent 3 months on malapascua training as a divemaster. I did my training with thresher shark divers which was fantastic!! From the boat crews to the bar staff and needless to say the amazing instructors everything was amazing. I would highly recommend TSD if anyone is looking to dive on malapascua. Happy diving :-)

We returned to Malapascua 26th Dec - 5th Jan for our fourth time and were greeted by big hugs and smiles from the staff at Thresher Shark Divers. I was amazed at how the dive boat crew remembered our names and how long it had been since we were last there, like we were old friends returning to see them.... More

Christmas 2014 trip saw our fourth trip to Malapascua with Thresher Shark Divers (TSD). The thresher shark dive is amazing, and I will get to that, but with between 30 and 40 awesome shark dives before this trip it certainly wasn't just the attraction of sharks that brought us back, it was the wonderful people of Malapascua combined with a...

We did some adventure dives and fun dives with the Thresher Shark Divers and like real women, we couldn't make up our mind about which dives to do. The staff were very patient and gave us great advice. I felt safe at all dive and found all the staff, from the guy who drove the boat to the person handing... More

I have over 400 dives in 32 countries, I booked with Thresher Shark Divers (TSD) in advance and prepaid for a package of 10 dives. I also had experience with two other shops on the Island and TSD was the worse by far. In the end, all the shops take you to the same spot, at the same time, to... More

Thank you to Mr Siddel for his review. We always appreciate any constructive criticism as it helps us improve our services. However, we are quite puzzled as to why he think our operation is so very awful, especially given the two preceding 5 star reviews written by people who were here at the same time. Also, aside from issues with... More

I choose TRD based on many positive reviews there and me and my husband weren't disappointed.Dive centre is extremly well organised and meticulous in ensuring divers' comfort. Despite my husband didn't speak English and sometimes we dived in different groups he was always supervised and everything was smoothly. DMs were very polite, attentive, took care of us and did their... More

I had not realised this was occurring, but now I know, we will fix it. We have just completed a rebuild of the dive center and have additional covered areas, so that should... More

Bit of a late review here... Visited Malapascua in 2013 to take my diving cert. A friend recommended TSD and I was not disappointed! Saw a ship wreck, reef sharks, loads of nudibranchs and of course the Thresher sharks. Such a great experience and I will return as soon as I get a chance. Great crew, my instructor Chris was...
