One of my buddies highly recommended TSD, and I was not disappointed. During our two visits, the staff and guides were very professional, safety-oriented, cheerful, and friendly. We had a fantastic time and amazing encounters with thresher sharks. We will be back. on behalf of Kapal Selam Dive Club (www.kapalselam.org)

I have been to Malapascua for the last three years running and each time dived with Thresher Sharks. We always get a very warm welcome back and get very well looked after. Our dive guide was very friendly and excellent at pointing out the fish to us. Over the week we saw threshers, hammerheads, white tips, frogfish, seahorses and madarian... More
