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.

I'm a dive instructor & dive shop owner with many dives in many places, but Malapascua is truly among the most memorable dives I've done. I dived Monad Shoal and Gato Island with Evolution and loved my dives! The thresher sharks were of course incredible, and Gato island had killer aquatic life as well. The shop itself is very well...

Awesome tech diving with resort owner Matt Reed for one week, dived a nice wreck at 50m in clear water and the wreck still in a good condition. Did a long dive with loads of thresher sharks all in all a great week and worth the travel

There is a reason this is #1 on TripAdvisor! The staff are absolutely amazing, very professional and helpful especially if you haven't dived before. This was my first time diving and I can't fault Evolution one bit. I did my open water PADI course with an instructor called Mette, she's an amazing instructor, very knowledgable and professional! She honestly made... More

I'm more than happy I chose Evolution for my very first scuba diving experience. I completed my Open Water Diving course here and I was very satisfied with entire team at Evolution and especially Mette, my instructor. I spent 4 days on Malapascua and I can only wish I could have stayed longer. It was definitely the highlight of my... More

Tidy rooms, daily early morning trips to monad shoal, white sand, excellent service around the maintenance of the diving gear, quiet at the end of the row of resorts, these are the advantages that we have discovered while we stayed at evolution. Special thanks to Gino our dive guide who did an excellent job to show us the thresher sharks... More

I spent 2 months with Evolution over the summer completing my advanced open water, rescue diver and divemaster training, and therefore feel I have a good basis for writing this review. I cannot say enough good things about Evolution. The instructors are extremely competent and knowledgeable, and I can guarantee you get the best training on the island when you... More

The dive operations they run in this place is legit! The DMs (shout out to Joe & Alex) know what they are doing. We were given dive briefings before going to the water each time, they even have drawings of each dive site which help illustrate where we were going and our route underwater. The Evolution boats, The Heldane and... More

The dive guides definitely made us feel safe, and many times we had a very good ratio (2 or 3 divers per dive guide). The diveshop runs 4 dives daily (Thresher sunrise dive, ~9am dive, ~1pm dive, and night dive). If you would like a day trip (e.g. Gato island), it's 2 dives from ~9am; do enquire as they do... More
