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

I wish half stars were allowed because I would give them 3.5. i elected 4 as that was fair, the dive shop is solid. They impressed me with their safety and consideration to the divers' abilities and ensured proper coverage of DMs or DMCs. They have a dedicated buoy line at the dive location for the Threshers and this may... More

We took a refreshment dive and it was really good and serious, nice professional staff. We also took a early morning dive and were really lucky to see several thresher sharks and mantas, amazing experience!

We did our advanced open water and Nitrox with both Angus and Megan. They were both keen, passionate and knowledgeable.. They taught us a lot of new things and corrected our wrong doings. We learned a lot from them. It was fun diving with them and highly recommended.

The center is super well organized and efficient. The staff are focused on customer service and satisfaction. I had a great opportunity to dive with terrific dive masters: Gary, Vera, Wilbert - all excellent spotters and very attentive. The care they offer guests getting on & off the boats is superb. Being a bit older - they were so helpful... More

My time with Thresher Shark Divers was amazing :) They are responsive with your questions and will help you to arrange hassle-free transportation and accommodation (subjected to availability). Majority of my dives were done with a local guide and with their eagle eyes, the dives were pretty amazing. While a little pricey, their dive equipment are top notched, staff and... More

Why we chose TSD over other dive centers in Malapascua was because of how responsive and helpful they were right from the get-go. I had been emailing with Andrea who always replied with a lot of enthusiasm and detail. What we really loved about TSD was how well-organised the center was at all times, the boats always departed on time,... More

Hi Katharine, Andrea here, thank you for your lovely review and so glad everything went so well for you :) I looked into the incident you mentioned about touching as that is not something we allow our DMs to do. From what I can gather, was an isolated incident on your dive to Chocolate Island. The marine life that was... More

This was my second visit to Malapascua and also the second time I dived with Thresher Shark Divers (TSD). And just to make it clear - I was very very satisfied with the dive company and the product they deliver. First of all, TSD is not just a dive company. It is also a small travel agency, who will arrange... More
