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.

Evolution, the natural selection...? If you're looking to enrol in a scuba course and want to become the best diver you can be, it's the only selection. Myself and my wife spent a gruelling, yet hugely enjoyable four weeks with Evolution in the pursuit of...More

I like to read the bad reviews, even when a place has a large number of good reviews. In this case, most of them were just random rants from people a few years ago. This is a review based on the Tech training I did,...More

This is a stunning mid range resort on a perfect tropical sandy beach. It is not five star but affordable and ideal for a very comfortable island experience. Most importantly this is a VERY impressive dive centre with great credentials. I took my AOW and...More
