Returned to Malapascua and Thresher Shark Divers after 10 years. Although the island has developed and the centre is much busier now, the same personal touch and friendly atmosphere still exists. Thresher Shark Divers start looking after your needs before you arrive and once on the island we were immediately welcomed, set up and orientated, while our bags were taken... More

My experience with TSD was very good. The pick-up times from (and return to) Cebu were based upon what worked best for me and not a time schedule dictated by them that I had to meet. What was best for me, I got. High marks for that. I dove with 4 different instructors/masters and always felt safe and looked after.... More

Hi Jeff, Thank you so much for you lovely review and so glad you had a great time! As for your boat crossing, I'm very sorry this was not ideal. I know the "pier" is not the easiest place to transfer, especially at low tide. Its very frustrating after all these years, but our hands are tied; we are waiting... More

Sad to say that despite all the positive reviews, I had a poor visit. I was completing my open water and found my instructor (Angus) to be easily frustrated and impatient. I found the teaching style to be quite authoritarian and not suitable for new and nervous divers. The environment overall was not fun for me and incredibly awkward at... More

We came to Malapascua to see the Thresher Sharks. One of our friends recommended we organise the dive with Thresher Shark Divers, and she was so right. The all team was brilliant, from beginning to end. Our diver master, Tata, was like a Jedi Master, we started seeing thresher sharks about 2 minutes after we entered the water! We ended... More

Diving with Thresher Sharks has been on my bucket list for a while, and I was not disappointed. Thresher Shark Divers are lovely to deal with and super organised. Saw at least 5 Thresher Sharks this morning on our first dive. What an absolute pleasure to see these incredible creatures. Highly recommend.

Spent 10 days diving with them. They are well organised and dive guides work hard to locate both the threshers (located along a reef between 16m and 30+ ) and the macro stuff. We had our own kit but the hire stuff looked new and in good condition. Our favourite trip was Gato Island.

We spent 4 diving days in Malapascua and were very happy that we chose this diving. Very professional, comfortable boats, good gear. Gato Island was our favourite dive and had a close look at sharks as well. Many thanks especially to Marvin: very nice, funny, caring and knowledgeable dive master!

I booked my Open Water and Advanced Open Water with Threshers based on what I'd read on TA. The reviews were spot on. Very friendly, very professional and very confident. Great staff, equipment and facilities. I loved my time on Malapascua and every single dive with Threshers. It was an experience I'll never forget. Thank you Threshers with particular thanks... More

It's pretty clear when you arrive that these guys are the leaders. Staff (in my case, Max) were really professional and even made special efforts to fit me in to a dive when capacity was full. Have to give thanks to the owner, who was in contact with me personally and provided all the information I needed. I would recommend... More
