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 getting my weight belt, BCD, and fins off each & every time. They were always available to lend a hand getting on & off the boats.

Fortunately the soft & hard coral is still in great shape. Though I was there in a low season - the visibility was not the best - I had a wonderful time seeing many "new to me" creatures such as the Thresher Sharks (fabulous!!) and lots of macro creatures that could only be seen with the help of the dive masters.

This center attracts a lot of Nitrox divers so Nitrox & Air divers are typically organized into separate groups. The center offers 4 dives per day and 2 special all day (2-tank) trips to islands a little more distant.

There were a lot of divers during the week of the Lunar New Year - a big vacation time for South East Asian & China - so the boats were plenty full. Suggest skipping a major holiday time to best enjoy the dives.

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 dive masters/instructors are friendly and professional - making my time in Malapascua Island an awesome one!
