在Malapascua七个晚上,共做了7次潜水。总的来说,是一家很不错的潜店。Marvin 是我最喜欢的guide,给我找到了很多东西:sea horse; frogfish; spanish dancers; all sorts of shrimps... 最后一次night dive,也不错,和Tata一起的,他找了octopus,cuttlefish... I have to say that dive guides really are important for us to enjoy the dive. Marvin非常的幽默good sense of humor. 船上有Marvin的时候,很开心。 boat crew都非常非常的nice!! 非常喜欢他们,可惜我没有记住他们的名字。 I am sorry that I didnt remember your names, but you are really lovely people. 船上有热水是good point。 bad point: 唯一不好的就是,第一次夜间潜水的时候,人实在太多太多了,十几个潜水员围着一只很小的 mandarin fish.

Trip Advisor-check your programming because this IS the # 1 dive company in Malapascua! After 2 fantastic days of diving I am sad to wave goodbye to Malapascua. I selected TSD based on reviews from Trip Advisor and I am happy to 'pay it forward' to those just planning their dive vacation. Right from the initial e-mail correspondence through to... More

I came here with some friends for a diving trip. The centre is located right in front of the beach, staff are amazing - they do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. I was surprised by how much they were doing to help with our diving kits. I would definitely recommend to use Thresher Shark Divers and will... More

Everything these guys do is absolutely top-notch. I went out on 4 different dives and had Julian, Hugo, Marvin, and Lauren. All four of them were excellent and each had their own different style and tips for me. I'm still a beginner-level diver, so they were all extremely helpful. The diving itself was out of this world, we saw a... More

From the minute we stepped out of the airport we got to experience the impeccable service that Thresher Shark Divers provide to their divers. From our own private car, transferred straight on to a boat to the island, and met for dive brief straight away. Bags carried to our hotel, drinks provided, informative briefings, and amazing staff! We were a... More

PADI 5 Star Career Development Center. They spoiled me and my husband, we work in the Maldivies as diving instructor and they definitely demonstrated high level of professional. Small group of divers and cooperative of the guides while underwater, avoid bumping into each others. Amazing staffs and special mention to David and Tata. Tell David what you want then do... More

I did both my DM and Instructor course with TSD in two subsequent visits and I came back just this february again. I really like the overall vibe in this divecenter, they've got a great crew of locals and great instructors like I've hardly seen anywhere else in this world, I would always choose this divecenter over any other one...

Get ready, the thresher shark dive was crowded in the morning, and every diver is going to pretty much the same location. The dive itself was fine, but the upper management was neither helpful nor understanding with our questions nor the booking process.

scbrdvr, Owner at Thresher Shark Divers, responded to this review

Thank you to this reviewer for their comments. As the owner, I take all feedback seriously, both positive but especially negative. But this does not sound like a review for the TSD shark dive as all tours do not “do the same.” Most of them go to the same place where you will see many other divers from other dive... More

If I could give this place 6 stars I would. They were absolutely incredible. From the moment we walked in staff were super accommodating, especially Steven and Max, who we interacted with the most.
