First, let me say that pretty well nearly all the dive shops I've used are excellent. From the professionalism and safety standpoints it's mandatory and TSD meets these criteria. The dive masters are all competent, approachable, and friendly and supportive. The ratio to divers was never more than 4. The boats are, well, Filipino, so are big outriggers. Jump off... More

They are very friendly and make you feel welcome and safe. They were able to show us a threshershark on our second shark dive! And we even saw a devil ray the first time. Make sure you have more than one day diving, here as the sharks are wild animals and it can happen that they aren't there for a... More

Me and my girlfriend booked our AOW courses with TSD with a private transfer from cebu airport. On arrival to the airport our driver was waiting for us in a nice clean air conditioned car, which was ideal for relaxing and even getting our heads down during the 3 hour drive to the boat. Our instructor (Amy) was amazing. My... More

I was so impressed with TSD, I have absolutely nothing negative to report. They were recommended to me by friebds and I went there to do my Open Water course having never dived before. Communication through email during the booking phase pre-departure was quick and no question went unanswered and they were great (and cheapest) for organising my return airport... More

Very well run dive operation with superb staff - Dive Instructor Kim went the extra mile for us both above and under the water - my four teenagers (13-16yrs) loved her and had a week of cool dives with loads of Thresher sharks 😛 Thanks and safe diving

The team at TSD was fantastic, the shop is run like a well oiled machine. The Filipino Divemasters are very well trained and know the dive spots like the back of their hands. Tata was great. I do wish the divers had more of a say as to where we would dive versus us being told. Getting to Malapascua island... More

Visited in December 2016 for a week. We found TSD to be one of the most professional and safe diving operation we have experienced. Andrea, the owner, maintained very good communication prior to arrival and we were handed off to the capable hands on the ialand staff on arrival. We will definitely return and recommend others to do the same.

TSD is a fine dive shop compared to most in the Philippines (from what I've heard from others) so I am probably in the minority when I say I wasn't thrilled with my experience with them. I went on 8 dives in 3 days. I would still recommend them to others but here are a few of my criticisms: 1.... More
