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.

I dived, the family resorted,, it was a wonderful place for at great vacation. The diving is great, but the diving crew are worldclass. You don`t get it better anywhere. On top of it they offer diving courses all the way up to the most advanced you can think of. Want to go to 100 m , this is the... More

I went there because of so many reviews here. I cannot confirm these good reviews. I was asked by a girl if I have a license already. As I told her I got OWD she said suddenly oh, OWD only. I never talked to an DM and the informations i got are not really helpful. It seems they're very unprofessional... More

Professional dive shop with nice, friendly helpful staff. Would and have recommended them to others as there are some shops here which don't seem as safety conscious and professional. Only downside was no professional courtesy given to DMs diving with them as you get elsewhere in the Philippines from what I've seen. When asked the said only if you have... More

After doing such a good dive with Thresher Shark Divers in the morning, I was surprised to have such a big difference with evolution in the afternoon Dive plan was rushed, no equipment of buddy checks were carried out, and I was sent into the water without a dive computer. While Alex (the instructor), did assist underwater, he didn't really... More

I did my Open Water Cert + a deep dive to 30m back in September 2016 with instructor Mette who was an absolute gem. She was extremely professional and gave me confidence in the water through her excellent instructional technique and relaxed personality. Had some great dives with the threshers, a sunken passenger ferry, and various reefs around the area.... More

Did my OWD course here, Vanessa my instructor is very nice and professional. The staffs were awesome and friendly aside from one of the lady with braces at the reception, she was rude to us. I am half taiwanese half filipino and probably thought i don't understand what she said in tagalog when we were asking informations about the dives... More

David Joyce of Evolution was very accommodating with my inquiries. His prompt and patient responses were really helpful, I wish we had at least 4 days in the island so we can complete the open course dive. Nonetheless, it was a great experience for me and my husband. Mette, our dive instructor, made sure we were comfortable with the dive.... More

My husband and I did several 'fun' dives with Evolution over the course of a week. We dived with two other companies whilst in the Philippines and this review is based on our experience with these companies as well as with the various other companies we have dived with over the years. THE BOAT Evolution's boats were not very comfortable.... More
