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.

We had such an amazing experience with Evolution. Before this trip we did two dives in Brazil in which we got very scary about it! The instructor did it too fast, without much attention... so we were worried about doing it again. But our experience...More

I'd recommend speaking directly to the staff about your plans since I'm not an expert! The Monad Shoal where Threshers are often seen is at 30m, so your best chance of seeing them is to complete the OW and then arrange to do... More
