Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The reviews say it all. Take the time to talk to Matt, David, the staff, other guests, and islanders. They all have interesting stories to tell.

“An experiment that Darwin would be proud to be associated with . . .”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This is no ordinary Dive or holiday resort, the Guys and Girls @ evolution have formulated the perfect combination of tranquillity mixed with well disciplined and organised adventure diving, all for a reasonable and affordable cost.

Upon arrival it was apparent that the Evolution Diving resort was a well planned concept but it took a while to appreciate how much effort, thought, hard work, dedication and capital it has taken to get it to where it is now.

Great affordable food, intoxicating selection of beverages, the cleanest beach hut style rooms that i've seen in the PH, numerous areas to reside at and relax, daily updated specials menu.

The biggest observation that i noticed was that the guys at Evolution deliver a very high quality of diving for all abilities and desires, they are energetic hardworking and WON'T compromise the clients satisfaction in order to achieve an easy buck, evidently some of the operations nearby prefer the latter.

Great Diving, weather, food, people, drinks and atmosphere.

Speak to everyone there and try to share travel arrangements upon your return, its more coast effective and efficient.

Thanks Evolution

“Very good choice”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Evolution was a great choice as a medium-sized dive resort. They have a subtle approach to service and friendship that works quite well, cultivating an environment that is friendly for divers above the water as well. Excellent food, best on the island.

“Great diving and service”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Folks at Evolution were great hosts, friendly good food and good diving. Very helpful when I left some of my dive kit there and it was organized and sent to the airport where I met the kit so I did not have to go home without it. The staff bent over backwards to sort this out for me, greatly appreciated.
Look forward to returning.
Cheers,
Sprocket Australia.

“Dive talkin'.”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

I had never dived before so I don't know how to compare the shop to what else is on offer around the world, let alone the island, but I was delighted with the whole experience. The local lads working with David and Matt are a great bunch and the service they give is impeccable. I'd like to think that I was the greatest dive student they have ever taught, and that's certainly the way it will remain in my imagination, but my progress may have had something to do with my instruction! Lots of underwater critters to admire, though the sea horses on the House Reef won it for me. Who the hell designed them?
