Thank you to this reviewer for his comments. As the owner of TSD I take all feedback very seriously, both positive and negative. A diving factory is the last thing we aim to be and so I'm really sorry that this diver felt overcrowded. Malapascua...More

Overall I can say I would recommend Thresher Shark Divers to either very experienced divers or new divers. If you're an intermediate diver, their approach may or may not be for you. I was initially put off by a few things that I wish had...More
