Me and my husband had the pleasure of diving with TSD during the easter holiday this year and booked our stay with TSD through a Norwegian travel agent (travelstore.no) and stayed at Tepanee beach resrort (which was very good by the way). Transportation from the airport (mini-van + boat) had been arranged in advance and arrived promptly.
We started diving the day after we arrived at the island and instantly felt very welcomed by the staff both in the dive-shop and at the Oscar's restaurant. A lot of the dive-sites are done on nitrox and unfortunately we discovered that we were not fully certified (even though we thought we were). The staff at thresher thought we had got a bit of a bum deal from the dive center where we had done (as it turned out) just the discover nitrox course and not the full certification, so they gave us a discount on the full nitrox certification (which we completed in just a day thanks to the help of Sophie). What great service! The certification was celebrated with the usual sharkbite shot *spoiler alert*
The dive-crew was very knowledgeable and took good care of us. They took care of all the equipment for so you didn't have to lift a finger and even put your flippers on before you jumped in =) Our favourite instructor was Riza (I hope I'm spelling it correctly), she really had a knack for finding the good stuff under water.
The Oscar's restaurant had superb staff and super-fast service and was a great place to wind down after a day of diving.
If you plan on diving at Malapascua, TSD is the place to go!
A tip for travellers: There's no ATM at the island so remember to bring enough cash!
