TSD offers a mix of single boat dives and two or three tank day trips to more distant sites. We dive in small groups supervised by experienced PADI Divemasters who have done thousands of dives around Malapascua. They have laser eyes and know the sites inside out! If you want to see something special, just ask. BoatIt is more than likely you can see it in Malapascua!

We offer a very personalized service and can usually arrange go the dive sites of your choice during your stay. We can even take you out if you are the only one diving.

All our dive boats carry first aid kits, phones, and oxygen, and our emphasis is on your safety and your fun. We offer Nitrox which is perfect for several of our dive sites.

Please remember to bring your certification card.

Our Dive Schedule

Malapascua shoreline and TSD Dive BoatOur dive schedule is not fixed, but below is a typical example. If you have a special request, we will do our best to make it happen.

5am - 7am - Thresher Shark Dive

Our first dive of the day is at 5.30am and it is well worth getting up this early. We provide plenty of coffee and tea, and you will get to see an amazing sunrise. On the dive you should get to see the rare sight of thresher sharks! You will be back in time for an early breakfast. If you wish to leave earlier or later we are very flexible. In hammerhead season we often leave earlier to catch them at the break of dawn.

Day Dives During the day we have single dives at 10am and 2pm, or 2-3 tank day trips, depending on the dive site . See our list of dive sites for more information.

Mandarin fish Malapascua5pm - Thresher Shark Divers Famous Randy Mandy Dive!

In the late afternoon we dive Lighthouse, where the rare and psychedelic mandarinfish are guaranteed. Do not miss the exotic mating dance of the male and his adoring females.

Many of our divers have told us this is the best night dive they have ever done.

6pm - Night Dive

We also regularly run full night dives to other sites around Malapascua. The sites are very different in the dark, so it is a great idea to do a few of these both by day and by night!
