Just spent an amazing 5 days on Malapascua Island and completed 6 dives with Thresher Shark Divers. Everything was very well organised from begining to end. All the staff at TSD were very friendly and professional, the filipino guys carried all are laugage from the boat up to office then to our hotel. All the gear was organised for us and put on the boat, then they also helped us put all the gear on. Our dive master Tata was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the weather stopped some of our dives, but the ones we did were pretty good. The best on had to be the one where we got up at 5am to swim with the sharks, after decsending to 33m and waiting a few minutes, we had a real experience as we watched the sharks swim by, this was really pretty amazing to actually see them, we were so lucky. On another day we had to all climb onto motor bikes in our wetsuits and all gear to get to the dive boat, as it was a lot calmer on the otherside of the island, this certainly was like a James Bond moment! The whole island is very peaceful and everybody is very friendly, it is also a great spot for photography.
Thanks everybody at TSD for giving us such a memorable trip, I cant wait to come back.

Rohan, Australia.

My experience with Thresher Shark Divers has been nothing short of fantastic. I completed my Advanced Open Water course with Jason (instructor) and had the utmost confidence in his abilities. All DMs always had our safety first and were keen to show us all types marine life, not only the impressive thresher sharks, but also mandarin fish, crabs and shrimp, rays and even blue ringed octopuses. The boat crews, interns, admin staff and bar staff were always happy to help. I would certainly recommend TSD to any diver. Thanks to everyone who helped make our holiday and excellent one.

This was our 4th visit to Malapascua and all 4 visit we dive with the Thresher Shark Divers and after being so great and so consistent over all our visits, I guess its time to write a review as this is proven a true 5 Star Dive Center. We are following TSD via their Facebook side and we are very impressed with the local activities they do in Malapascua. They work with the local Government to protect the marine life, they help to rebuild the houses after typhoon Yolanda, they educate the local people and make them Marine Life Protectors instead of Fisherman. The Island is wonderful, the evenings at Oscar Bar so fun and relaxing, the stuff is absolutely professional and so great fun to be with. The courses are a great combination of fun, adventure, education, nature, wildlife combined with the feeling of safety of being in professional caring hands. This is surely the place to do your courses and to enjoy World Class Diving. On Top of that the morning dives at Monad Shaol! What else can you ask for? We will definitely be back. Thanks TSD. We would like to specifically mentioned Jason, Tom and Gibb for making our time at TSD unforgettable

This must be one of the best resorts to do any course be it open water or IDC all staff are proud of their work and take time and effort to help explain and go out there way to make you feel welcome. Considering all the damage that was caused with Yolanda everyone is still smiling and doing what they do best Dive. I would strongly recommend taking any course with Thresher Shark Divers they are the best

I and my 10 year old son took the above courses at TSD. Our instructor Chris was excellent - professional and approachable and had no difficulties dealing with an occasionally recalcitrant juvenile! The diving was marvelous and all the staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't have done more to make our trip memorable
