We just did our PADI with TSD (Max was our instructor) and really enjoyed the experience. It was professional, friendly, intense and exciting and we came out of the PADI training as confident divers. We also enjoyed the bar and restaurant (Oscar) part of the facility with a nice terrace overlooking the beach. We highly recommend TSD!

The TSD crew is experienced and the dive masters are knowledgeable. Very attentive, funny, friendly and helpful. Their dive outriggers are large, roomy and well organized. The equipment is in good condition and the dive shop has a small but reasonable collection of equipment on sale and plenty of fish books for reference.

We visited Malapascua island from 11th to 18th July. From the first time I emailed TSD to enquire about their packages until the day we left, the service was impeccable. I did a refresher as I have not dived for more than 2 years, my instructor Jason was very professional, calm, and patient, and gave detailed briefings. Our dive guide,... More

The early morning dive to see the sharks really worth it. We have to get up at 4am, but looks like a cinema! We can see they from very close. The night dive is also very nice, but more focused in macro. Gato island is an awesome day trip! 2 perfect dives with a lot of corals and thru a... More

This dive center is the oldest in the island. Well managed, with a professional crew and the best spot to see the thresher sharks (every dive center have the designated areas, to watch sharks in their natural environment, so spots are not too overcrowded).

Thank you to this reviewer for her honest feedback. We get very few poor reviews so I looked into it right away, and I found out that we were in fact at fault. I can’t apologise enough, not least because I started TSD because I share that same passion for diving. I want every one of our guests to be treated... More
