Evolution is a concept based around safe and exciting scuba diving, good times and cold drinks with old and new friends, and a perfect blend of Filipino, Irish and English hospitality.With the paradise island of Malapascua in the Philippines as the backdrop, Evolution Diving has access to some one-of-a-kind dive sites, including the daily cleaning stations for thresher sharks at Monad Shoal. If you prefer macrolife, you can see most creatures on an experienced divers list, or you can get down and dirty in WWII wrecks and immerse yourself in the history that surrounds them.

Went on two dives with these guys including the thresher shark dive. It's an early start but it's well worth it. Everyone there is really friendly and helpful. They give you a briefing and prep all your equipment for you. They also make sure you're experienced and confident enough to do the 24m dive. The thresher shark dive was awesome.... More

I visited Malapascua as a group of 4 divers, and had a great experience with Evolution. Jo was our dive guide for most of our dives, and he was awesome at finding us everything that we wanted to find - frogfish, ornate ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorse and more. The thresher shark dive is unbelievable and totally worth the early rise.... More

Just spent three days diving with Evolution. Overall a great operation - streamlined, customer friendly, very flexible and good dive leaders. Got in 8 dives in 3 days, saw thresher sharks on one out of 2 attempts. Healthy reefs - lots of diverse life. Great macro nudibranch dives too.

I spent 5 nights at this dive resort with my wife and two young boys (both boys are already qualified junior open water divers). The resort is, as far as I could see, the most professional on the island. The ratio of divers to leaders/instructors was great and their advice and support was first class. From deep dives to see...

Three of our teens enrolled in the advanced diving course and they were so completely fortunate to have Mette as their incredibly talented and personable instructor. Her... More

I bought e-learning OWD course and booked my practice sessions in Evolution for 6 month in advance. All arrangements were done by e-mail, thanks David, the owner, and the whole team for quick and clear responses, friendly atmosphere and perfect dive into the world of diving. The course occasionally looked like private lessons, because I was the only in the... More

I did 4 dives with them. Perhaps the highest standards on the island. There are friendlier and cheaper outfits to dive with. They were not the only outfit I dived with so I'm absolutely certain of this. They were a long ways from where I was staying so I made a change. I was happy with both dive centers I... More
