When we came to Malapascua i wasn't quite sure if i wanted to do a divingcourse or. Then me and my friend stepped into the diveshop at TSD and met Candice, the warmest and most welcoming person ever. We sat down and she explained thoroughly how everything works, the safety aspects of it all and most importantly how great it... More

I was shopping around for diving when I arrived to Malapascua and I have to say that these guys made the difference! They were eager to help with anything I needed, they even carried my bag pack to my Guest house as it was too hot that day!! My diving license have been checked (which is not the case everywhere!!)... More

From the minute we stepped off the boat to the minute we left we felt part of the TSD 'family'. We were warmly greeted by Candice who is a lovely person and will try to help you in any way she can. She went through a thorough briefing with us explaining the way the dive centre ran, what their safety... More

I spent almost a week on Malapascua to go diving. I am not a very experienced diver, but in the capable hands of the TSD team, I had an absolutely amazing time. The facilities are great, the equipment too, but most of all the staff is truly amazing. My diving instructor (Xesus) was both very dedicated, professional and really a... More

We spent 4 days diving with TSD, from the first email contact through to the last dive I was very impressed with their sheer professionalism. All the diving was carried out in small groups with knowledgable, competent and safety conscious local DIve Masters. Nice people, great diving!

We recently spent 9 days on Malapascua Island, diving with TSD. In spite of the recent hurricane, the shop and staff seem to have recovered nicely and do a fine job of providing dive services to visitors. We enjoyed meeting Candace, Jason, Amy, Beds, Tata, Rika, Chris, Nicki, and all the other folks who make things work...thank you for all... More

I booked thru SeaQuest and they were very good - all the connections worked really well from pick up to drop off at Cebu airport. They also arranged all the accommodation etc . It was all I could do to stop them from arranging my flights , I suspect they may even have carried my bags had I asked !... More

As a solo-traveller I really apreciate a place that feels like home from the moment I arrive, and Thresher Shark Divers is certainly that. From my first enquiry through to waving goodbye, my experience was outstanding. All the staff were extremely friendly yet professional. I dived with 3 different local diver leaders - Tata, Beds and Riza, all of whom... More

We just spent a week using Thresher Shark Divers (TSD) and we had a wonderful experience. It has a very, laid back friendly vibe and has excellent, new gear and helpful staff. We dove 5 times and saw loads of sharks, coral, macro and fish and were treated so well and barely lifted a finger all week. Tata and Gibb... More

If you want amazing Thresher shark dives look no further than Thresher Shark divers, Malpascua. The new dive site is awesome. On one dive within 3 minutes of entering the water we saw 4 Thresher sharks, fantastic and there is still plenty of macro out there too. We were in two minds whether to go following the typhoon however the... More
