We spent a week diving with Thresher Shark Divers and they were very professional while friendly and focused on enjoyment. The dive shop had a some of the best food on the island with a good location on the beach. We would not hesitate to dive with them again.

Pre-trip arrangement : 1. Andrea has been a great great help. I booked my trip via Adex 2016. There were many many changes made in between and Andrea had been very efficient in handling all communications and my request. Diving : 1. I had the same & personal DM (Marvin) to myself for all 3days of diving. Did 9 dives... More

I loved my time in Malapascua so much I'm already planning on going back, probably next summer. My experience with TSD was brilliant, I simply can't fault it. All the logistics were run to perfection, and that includes my pick up and transfer back to the airport, and the everyday diving logistics. I was very happy with the way TSD... More

I completed my Open water certification with Thresher Shark Divers and had Amy as my instructor. I cannot tell you what an amazing experience this was for me. I was a bit nervous as I did not have any experience with diving, but with a seasoned veteran like Amy, I was comfortable before we even went under. She was very... More

Did my AOW course with TSD and they were so awesome! The service is exceptional and they really make sure that your equipment are all well prepared and your safety is prioritised. We did 3 morning dives in order to see the thresher sharks and our dreams came true on the 3rd morning when they came really close! The guides... More

PROS; Initial briefing was comprehensive and they do emphasize on diver's safety. My boyfriend and I felt that Dave did am excellent job at keeping the service personal as well as the girls in the restaurant, Oscars. The DMs aligned to us (Gary and JT) were fun and great at spotting things underwater. CONS; We felt the initial dive briefings... More

This is really professional dive shop. You will be briefed very well when you first arrive about all that's chargeable and all that's not and of all kinds of policies and safety practices. All the equipment was new ..to the extent that I could not even spot crease on the wet-suits. This is an expensive dive shop but the quality... More

Hi Anubhav, Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I’m so sorry about the shark dives, that was very unlucky :( I’m afraid it really was a case of bad timing. There was a Category 1 typhoon passing through the Philippines at the time, and although it passed through quickly, we did have to... More
