Planned a dive trip for January 2016 and began communicating with Andrea in June 2015. It had been several years since I had been diving and Andrea stated I might need a refresher, something I pretty much expected. Upon arrival I was told by another team member that it isn't that easy. It was going to be more of a... More

We did all our diving with Thresher shark divers and were not dissapointed. We saw a lot of sharks, had great day trips and enjoyed ourselves every minute. Oscars restaurant above the diveshop is also recommended, happy hour is great!

During a stay on Malapascua I had the pleasure of completing my Open Water Course with Xesus and Kyrill. They were excellent for both the academic sections and the 'in the water' training. There was no swimming pool nonsense, we did all the training and drills in the sea to simulate the real thing. I could not recommend TSD, and... More

The diving was great and the guides were excellent. A massive thanks to Marvin, Jason, Amy and the rest of the crew. We lucked out with the threshers on the first day...4 or 5 sharks and c.10 separate passes. Diving to remember.

Great dive center, well run. Good dm,s and instructors. Early morning dives always left on time and are well organized. Other dive sites are also very good. Boats , boat crews are very good and helpfull, all in all a good experience. Special mention to Jason who made our diving just that extra bit special.

We were recommended TSD from a contact in London and they did not disappoint. Compared to our experience in Coron, they restored my faith in Dice operators. Efficient, well organised, excellent boats, brilliant crew and dive guides - what more do want for diving! Jason, our Tech guide is a perfect example of how to make you feel good, planned... More

It's probably the only place where you can see thresher sharks regularly each morning and it is fantastic to observe them. We were lucky to see 5 the day of our diving.
