Overview
More
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.

I spent a week with Evolution doing my Rescue Diver course, EFR and Nitrox and all three were delivered to a very high standard. Good quality equipment and staff go above and beyond to ensure you gain the skills, rather than just treating it as...More

Evolution is such an incredible dive shop. It is friendly, efficient and logistically perfect. As soon as we arrived we were taken to sort our dive kit for the next day, we signed safety forms (rare in many places I've dived in SE Asia) and...More

Had a brilliant experience with these guys. The dive center feels very friendly, relaxed and welcoming, but underneath is a very professionally run operation. The gear was good, pre-dive was thorough and post-dive was extremely informative. We did 5 dives which were all excellent, particularly...More

We spent six days diving with Evolution and really enjoyed it. The centre treads a very fine line between being slick and professional, but also making you feel welcome and more than a customer. This is really difficult for dive centers to do, and I...More

Equipment and boats are good. The dive shop is a little pricier than others on the island. But you get what you pay for: we got good service and professionalism. We were not impressed with the dive sites: a lot of little things to see...More
