Malapascua island diving

Philippines Diving

Map of the Philippines

The Philippines has some of the best and most varied diving in the world.

Back in 2004 when TSD first opened, the spectacular diving in Philippines was only really known among dedicated divers, in fact the country was very little touristed at all. But Andrea, the founder of TSD, discovered its secret and decided to make Malapascua her home. In recent years it has finally gained recognition, and now is often voted “Best diving destination” by divers. Most of the creatures on your “to see” bucket list can be found here, at least on the macro side, and once you come, you will want to return over and over!

There are plenty of locations to choose form – maybe too many! – but let us help you build the perfect package.

We can arrange everything for you, excluding flights.  See below for some of the destinations and also check out our sister company’s website, Philippines Dive and Travel.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please contact us and we will do our best to help!
