My wife and I dived with TSD for 4 days in October. We found the staff to be friendly, professional and fun, three essential things for an island dive centre. Nothing is too difficult for these guys, they run an extensive daily dive schedule and are well equipped and prepared for each trip. I would highly recommend the dawn thresher... More

What a professional dive center. The local dive masters know their dive sites like their pockets. Very good service also explain n show different corals, fishes etc. They are not the cheapest but for sure they deliver what they promise. Dino and the team are there for years so they know what they talking about. Plus they work hard and... More

I would highly recommend diving with TSD when staying on Malapascua Island. I did a day trip to Gato Island as well as the Monad Shoal thresher shark dive and they were both great! We saw 5 threshers so it was well worth the early wake up!

As a Dive Professional it was great to see a thriving dive shop in operation on Malapascua. TSD has a great crew of divers, from the professionals working there to the clientele that come to experience the underwater world. The boats are comfortable, the day is relaxed, the diving is good and the atmosphere around the dive shop, even in... More

I was blown away by the whole experience I had with TSD as it was very positive. They were very helpful to get me to the island (and arranged my airport transfer after a long journey) as well as recommendations for places to eat on the island and other places to go in the Philippines after I left Malapascua. From... More

We dived with this dive op over a period of 7 days and did a variety of dives with them including 4 thresher shark dives. A very professional operation with very friendly staff and a secure kit room where you can leave your stuff if doing several dives with them. The DMs are mostly local guys and are great at... More
