We arrived on our first trip to the Philippines to be met at Mactan Cebu airport by the TSD team for an much needed air conditioned transfer in a large people carrier for around 3 1/2 hours to the boat for transfer to the Island. After 30 hours travelling from the UK the fantastic sunset that greeted us as we... More

Despite the relatively famous spot in the phillipines and globally, there is little info about malapascua. So here are a few tips. Getting there: taxi to city ~ 160 peso. ask for meter taxi, dont bother with the yellow ones. its overpriced. to malapascua island, you can take the bus from north station (~ 5.5 hours), or a better option...

Our last visit to TSD was just before the typhoon hit in 2013. We were keen to come back to support the island and see how they had coped. Apart from the noticeable lack of trees the island seems to have recovered well. We were given our usual very warm welcome. The weather was very kind to us and we... More

So far, Malapascua has been my favorite island. Very relaxed vibe, clean and clear water, friendliest people you'll meet anywhere, and great diving. TSD experience was wonderful. Amy gave an incredibly comprehensive arrival briefing. All of my guides were local which was wonderful - they know the area and all of the usual hiding spots for every treasure - big... More

This was our second visit to TSD and just as relaxing, friendly and professional as the first. As with our last visit, all the arrangements right from the first email contact to airport pickup, transfers, hotel, checking in etc went really smoothly - no question or requirement was too much trouble - we were made to feel welcome as soon...

Such an easy process, from the email contact and pricing through to Trevor suggesting a great spot for lunch on our transfer day! We will be back and asking for Gary again as our DM (I swear he has the Threshers on call for the right divers!). Being able to prepay a big chunk of our expenses and meals was... More

I just spent almost two weeks in Malapascua and did 41 dives with TSD (including UW videography, UW digital fotography, Peak performance buoyancy and Search & recovery specialties, day trips to Gato, Kalanggaman and Dona Marilyn wreck). Final bill wasn't cheap but worth every peso. I sent many questions with email to TSD before getting to Malapascua and I always... More

I was recently in Malapascua for 4 days and did 5 dives with TSD. From start to finish everything is taken care of. The staff in the restaurant, the dive shop, the dive masters, on the boat, every single one of them is friendly, professional and so kind. There are showers, a restaurant, a place to keep your things dry... More
