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.

Our second, but by no means our last experience with Evolution Diving. All travel arrangements went without a hitch, from pick up at airport, transfer by van and boat to arrive early evening. Good clean rooms, basically equipped but more than sufficient. The restaurant is...More
