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.

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

My experience with Thresher Shark Divers was a blast and a memorable vacation! I completed my Open Water course and DMs always had my safety first and were happy to show all types of marine life, from the memorable thresher sharks to the smallest but so beautiful mandarin fish, moray eels, nudibranchs and many more. All the staff at TSD... More

I visited Malapascua and dived with Thresher Shark Divers in 2007 whilst backpacking in the Philippines. I had such an incredible time that I decided to return in 2009 to complete my PADI instructor training. It was fantastic, and I don't think I could have picked a better shop to train with, in such a stunning location. Some of the... More
