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.

Did my OWD course here, Vanessa my instructor is very nice and professional. The staffs were awesome and friendly aside from one of the lady with braces at the reception, she was rude to us.

David Joyce of Evolution was very accommodating with my inquiries. His prompt and patient responses were really helpful, I wish we had at least 4 days in the island so we can complete the open course dive. Nonetheless, it was a great experience for me and my husband. Mette, our dive instructor, made sure we were comfortable with the dive.... More

My husband and I did several 'fun' dives with Evolution over the course of a week. We dived with two other companies whilst in the Philippines and this review is based on our experience with these companies as well as with the various other companies we have dived with over the years. THE BOAT Evolution's boats were not very comfortable.... More

Let me start off by saying before this trip I'd never been scum diving before nor had a burning desire to do so. My mate wanted to get his advanced open water qualification for work, he did a bit of research and found Evolution and invited me to accompany him and being the good friend I am came along. Upon...

Returned to dive 1-7 Feb, instantly felt at home on arrival seeing familiar and friendly faces of Evolution's staff and dive crew. Island weather this period wasn't too kind with day-trip cancellations, needing to precisely time entry into water, mustering every ounce of strength to climb up the ladder (no thanks to the choppy waves) and braving the colder temperature...

Completed my Advanced Open water course with evolution. My instructor, Nick, was patient, friendly and determined to give us the best experience. I'd definitely recommend his expertise for your next dive. - Contacted Evolution via email whereby David gave me all the info I needed before booking the course. He responded promptly. - Gear was in good condition - Atmosphere... More

I stayed here for 4 days in Jan 2017. Firstly I should advise that the sea was quite rough during my visit so I did not do as much diving as I would have liked. I stayed at the resort accommodation and this was fine - although more expensive than nearby properties. My dives were OK. The weather wasnt conducive... More

David was brilliant at responding to my emails, and he was great at being flexible when I had to change my original plans last minute. Matt and the rest of the team on site - office staff, guides, instructors - were so kind and friendly! In my week there, my guides were for the most part, Gino and Alex. Both... More

Had our first diving experience with Evolution and had a great time! We completed the open water course with Matte, who is friendly, helpful, clear with her guidance and instructions and most of all, kept us slow and calm in the water. She provided us with sufficient briefing and feedback both before and after each dive, which was really useful... More
