We did our advanced open water and Nitrox with both Angus and Megan. They were both keen, passionate and knowledgeable.. They taught us a lot of new things and corrected our wrong doings. We learned a lot from them. It was fun diving with them and highly recommended.

The center is super well organized and efficient. The staff are focused on customer service and satisfaction. I had a great opportunity to dive with terrific dive masters: Gary, Vera, Wilbert - all excellent spotters and very attentive. The care they offer guests getting on & off the boats is superb. Being a bit older - they were so helpful... More

My time with Thresher Shark Divers was amazing :) They are responsive with your questions and will help you to arrange hassle-free transportation and accommodation (subjected to availability). Majority of my dives were done with a local guide and with their eagle eyes, the dives were pretty amazing. While a little pricey, their dive equipment are top notched, staff and... More

Why we chose TSD over other dive centers in Malapascua was because of how responsive and helpful they were right from the get-go. I had been emailing with Andrea who always replied with a lot of enthusiasm and detail. What we really loved about TSD was how well-organised the center was at all times, the boats always departed on time,... More

This was my second visit to Malapascua and also the second time I dived with Thresher Shark Divers (TSD). And just to make it clear - I was very very satisfied with the dive company and the product they deliver. First of all, TSD is not just a dive company. It is also a small travel agency, who will arrange... More

Kicked off our PADI Advanced Open Water with TSD. Great staff, we instantly knew we're in safe hands over here. Had an amazing first deep dive with thresher sharks, manta and eagle rays. Jason - most favorite dive instructor!

I did this as a solo part of my trip, so wanted to feel at ease with the center I wanted to go diving with, reading reviews I had selected another one, but didn't feel convinced. After checking out a few other shops I got to TSD. A dive master had recommended them to me. Very professionally organised, the Sharks... More

First, let me say that pretty well nearly all the dive shops I've used are excellent. From the professionalism and safety standpoints it's mandatory and TSD meets these criteria. The dive masters are all competent, approachable, and friendly and supportive. The ratio to divers was never more than 4. The boats are, well, Filipino, so are big outriggers. Jump off... More

They are very friendly and make you feel welcome and safe. They were able to show us a threshershark on our second shark dive! And we even saw a devil ray the first time. Make sure you have more than one day diving, here as the sharks are wild animals and it can happen that they aren't there for a... More
