Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

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 were signed up for dives the next day. All your kit is prepared for you and already on the boat when you arrive for your dive briefing in the morning - it's luxury! Every single member of staff I met was friendly and willing to help. Special mention to Dan and Dom who were super friendly and engaging even outside of 'dive time'! There is nowhere else I would consider diving or recommending to anyone else, GO HERE!

If you are planning to go to Malapascua to meet Thresher sharks, do not think it twice & book with Evolution.
Great instructors, perfect equipment, nice boats...
Everything here is done to satisfy your crave for diving.
Apparently they propose also excellent technical courses for diving if you are interested.

Enjoy !

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 Monad Shoal(of course, the Threshers were amazing) and Gato Island. Nick, Dom and the team do a fantastic job with a couple of special mentions for Dannie, who did a great job for our refresher, and particularly Dan, who was a brilliant divemaster, so informative and passionate, he was an absolute pleasure to dive with. Thank you guys, we can't wait to come back.

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 appreciated all the hard work that went on in the back ground to make things run smoothly.
We completed a refresher course, one deep adventure dive and other fun dives at sites including Deep Slope, Gato Island and Monad Shoal.
We had a variety of guides but really enjoyed diving with Dan and Dom a lot. All out guides were enthusiastic and professional.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this dive centre to others considering Malapascua. The location, atmosphere and service is excellent.

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 spread all over ... nothing to write home about. If you want impressive dives, do them on a different island. Having said that, the thresher shark dive is really good, if you are lucky to see one. We were, and that made it worth it.


The beach is beautiful and the sunsets are amazing...

Restaurant is good - if a little overpriced.
