“First class PADI Dive Centre in Malapascua”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

A fantastic dive resort! A group of 5 of us spent 3 days here doing 10 days and a PADI speciality course - mainly to see the thresher sharks. From the first email contact everyone was professional and very helpful, and once we arrived everything was well organised and most importantly run by friendly people! Our divemaster Wil was brilliant; he knew every dive site inside out and highlighted every bit of marine life we hoped to see in Malapascua. All the rental equipment was in very good condition; something that was noticeable when we saw divers from other shops that were nowhere near as good. A recommendation is the Thresher Shark Speciality; Becca is passionate and knowledgeable about these amazing animals and it helped us get more out of the incredible (early morning!) Thresher dives . thanks for a great few days and we will be back!

“Just Excotic!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Had the pleasure of doing my IDC Staff Instructor course with Malapascua Exotic dive resort and CD Dan Robinson. And yes it was really an exotic dive resort. So welcomed from the minute I booked until I departed. In between classes and training there were time for fun dives on some of their many great dive sites. Everything was very well organized. I hilgly recommend this place both for trainng and recreational diving.

“excellent dive centre”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

the dive centre and all their staff were excellent. We had a great time. We also enjoyed the food and the whole experience on the island was great
the only thing we would like to see changed - having to climb over rocks or having to balance
on a single wooden plank to get into the boat w
which took us from the mainland to the island and back - this is an accident waiting to happen ! and poor chaps having to balance the suitcases on their head and shoulders -
apart from this - it was an amazing holiday and yes the thresher sharks are awesome
thanks to everbody who made our holiday special
