Malapascua is definitely one of the musts for diving in the Philippines. if you dive, you must go to Malapascua. I dived with Evolution for 5 days in April 2014. It was excellent, i will be back
Diving. dive operation is excellent. very well organized. i had my own equiplment but many people rented and it all appeared in good shape. Guides are superb. Professional and reliable - they know their sites. we had a couple of equipment melfunctions on the trip (diver own gear, not shop rented) - DMs handled it perfectly while keeping the other divers safe. All the staff and DMs have a great sense pf humor which makes the entore experience that much more fun. i did nitrox course to stay more with sharks. was great. thanks!
Accommodation. i was in the fan room. it is sapcious, clean. with hot water and electricity around the clock. for a remote destination in the Philippines this is great. Big sun/rain umbrella in the room is a nice touch ( we did have some rain showers while there). there is also a nice little padio and a drying rack.
Food/drink. the restaurnat /bar - craic house is wonderful. food was great and in addition to standard menu there was a stream of specials. You do have to pay for water refills. The best part is friendly staff and great vibe in the place. This is where everyone hangs between dives swapping stories and sharing drinks at happy hour. there is good wifi as well
service/booking. i booked my trip at the last minute. David was very responsive on email. i had dives, room, and transport all sorted out within a couple of hours.
typhoon Yolanda. As of April 2014 - in Evolution you would not know there was a typhoon. it is fully on - accommodatins, restaurant, wifi, electricity, hot water. fish and corals are all there. boats too. Of course for the locals it is different - their houses still need repair. But even more reason to come, stay, enjoy and help the local economy!
