Have you been thinking about taking your Rescue Diver course but are not quite sure if it's for you? A lot of people feel the same, but almost every diver who has will tell you it's the best course they have ever done. It will move your dive skills up to a whole new level and give you so much more confidence in the water :)

For a student's view on the course, check out this blog by Fabian, who after doing Open Water and Advanced with us on Malapascua, decided to come back and complete Rescue :)

More info on the courses here:

And thank you Fabian for the blog link and such a great write-up! 😊 Hope to see you and Michi again soon!

A sad goodbye to the group from the International School of Macao, who have been with us on Malapascua for a week! We have 20 new Open Water Divers, 8 new Advanced Open Water Divers, and it's been a ton of fun!

Quote of the week from one of the group of 15 year olds, "This trip has changed my future career"!!! 😃

How great is that?!!!

At TSD we always have the flexibility to offer several different daily dive itineraries around Malapascua due to having three roomy dive boats. As part of our full service, which we call "boutique diving without the price," TSD’s experienced and helpful boat crews are always at the ready to assist our divers into their gear.

Boat staff are not something you'd always think about when considering a dive shop, but ours are the unsung superstars of our operation and many have been working for TSD for over 10 years! They will carry all your gear on and off the boat, set it up and break it down, double check everything is in place and your air is on at your giant stride, and even put your fins on :) And all with the biggest smiles you can imagine!

Pictured here are the crew of Amy (Dodong, Joseph, and Ronnie) and Rosie (Johan, Pemar, and Darril). Esther's crew were out diving at the time of the photo :)

At TSD we are proud to be the only PADI 5 Star CDC (Career Development Center) on Malapascua. CDCs are the elite of PADI Dive Centers; there are only a handful in the world and the rating denotes a proven dedication to training professional candidates.
We train all levels of PADI courses from Discover Scuba Diving through to all PADI Instructor levels, including Tec and Freediving.

Pictured here is PADI Master Instructor Angus and PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer candidate Julian with TSD’s current group of proud DM interns decked out in their gear getting ready for a training session.

Considering becoming a PADI Divemaster? What better place than a tropical island in the Philippines? Who wouldn't want to spend a couple of months on our picture-perfect island with its white sand beaches and aqua blue water?

Cuttlefish are one of nature’s most interesting creatures to observe, and they are a common sight in Malapascua’s waters. Dive at Gato, and you are almost guaranteed to see them getting frisky! They have one of the most fun-to-watch mating rituals around, added to which, there is almost always a second male hanging around trying to butt in on the action!

Despite their name, they are not actually fish, but mollusks. They are related to octopus and squid which are found worldwide, but strangely cuttlefish are not found in the Americas.
They are also very intelligent with one of the largest brains among invertebrates.

Malapascua Island is also home to the flamboyant cuttlefish, something on many divers Bucket List! Stay tuned for pics, if you've not seen them before you have a treat in store!
