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 can only recommend evolution divers, they were very well organized, staff is super friendly, and the dive shop itself had a lot of atmosphere and nice food. I wish I could have stayed there, but the rooms were fully booked.

Evolution has an excellent location and food and board. They take their diving instruction seriously and really plan a good trip for visitors to dive at various locations and get great sightings of Thresher Sharks as well.
