Evolution is a concept based around safe and exciting scuba diving, good times and cold drinks with old and new friends, and a perfect blend of Filipino, Irish and English hospitality.With the paradise island of Malapascua in the Philippines as the backdrop, Evolution Diving has access to some one-of-a-kind dive sites, including the daily cleaning stations for thresher sharks at Monad Shoal. If you prefer macrolife, you can see most creatures on an experienced divers list, or you can get down and dirty in WWII wrecks and immerse yourself in the history that surrounds them.

Great Dive Resort. We stayed here as part of a small group of 5. Accommodation was lovely and kept clean and well stocked. The food was lovely at the bar/restaurant but service could be slow at times. The Diving setup is very organised and the instructors all attentive and experienced on the locations that they visit and they even see... More

But we did spend 4 days... More

I did my Advanced Open Water course here, what a superb place! The knowledge and experience of all the dive instructors makes this place truly hard to beat for advancing in scuba diving. An inspiration to continue. Not to mention the resort location and great vibe whilst staying here. Special thanks to Nick Greenop, a great instructor!! 5 star

My instructor, Mette, was very skilled and patient with me the entire weekend. Made me feel very comfortable under water. She also sent me some great pictures and videos she took on... More

I originally booked for 7 days and extended to 14, even before I arrived the email correspondence was written personally and not a cut and paste exercise, thanks David. Evolution arranged personal transport from my hotel in Mactan to Malapascua which included a private boat transfer direct to Evolution beach resort. On arrival, the Evolution team, met me on the...

This dive resort and dive centre is on a whole other level! From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the admin staff who knew our names and showed around the resort. The dive crew and boat boys were all incredible from introducing themselves by name and running a thorough briefing before each dive, to having your full equipment... More
