Evolved Divers

My experience with Evolution was great! I did my open water course and deep dive adventure and was given a very thorough and careful instruction. I felt very safe and also had fun! The sharks were a highlight but I also loved the teeny tiny little creatures that inhabit the sea. The Craic House had really good food and they were very accommodating to our dietary needs. All the staff, from the manager to the boat crew were very friendly and helpful and we picked their brains for recommendations on other dive resorts around the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indo. We would definitely come back!!


I just finished the Extended Range course with Matt Reed, and after 9 years diving and several courses (up to instructor and Tec Rec 50) that was the best course i ever had, the quality of the training and the instructor it is one of the best around the globe.
Totally focused in develope all those skills that could save your life throug repetition, let you learn from your owm mistakes, reinforced with a good dose of theory and gentle touch. If you thinking to take a Tec course this will be the choice.

I will return!

A belated thank you for an absolutely brilliant time, during my not so recent ‘training holiday’ with you at Evolution. Indeed, because of both work and training commitments here, the time has simply flown by - just as it did in Malapascua! After dusting down my old dive-log, I can’t believe it’s almost 10 years, since I started my Tech Diver Training with you on the old steam-driven Dolphin at Puerto Galera…where has that time gone! After all that time (and diving/courses with you, including your time at Dumaguete), it is refreshing to see that both your professionalism and dedication to diving, and training have remained. I have been a diver for 36 years, (30 in the Military), and it is, indeed, those attributes that have kept me going back for more.It was a pleasure to see the success of your joint venture, Evolution Diving. The Resort is superbly managed by yourself and David, and definitely bears the hallmark of your individual skills and hard work. ‘All’ of the staff were first class, which only added to the friendly, relaxed, atmosphere of both the Resort and Craic House. Food…never missed a meal, and I will always remember my early morning breakfasts at Craic House, looking out at that fantastic ocean view…or was it the dread of the next Advanced Wreck dive! Have to say that the residents who were there during my stay (in particular Damo – I will miss his ‘just one more drink’, because we have a hard dive-day tomorrow), only added to a great time!I’d better sign off, before this becomes longer than one of my ‘stories at the Craic House Bar’. Again, many thank’s, I will continue your philosophy of teaching ‘knowledgeable and thinking divers’, and, as the only diver during my stay not too see a Thresher Shark, will definitely be back!

Love the Craic Bar!!

I don’t think there are any other beach resorts in The Philippines with an Irish bar. This has to be a first. We had great ‘craic’

Can't wait to come back!

I was looking for beach resorts in The Philippines and stumbled into your place. You looked after me and made me feel part of the family. I’ll be back and this time with a booking.

A Perfect Holiday

Thanks for the perfect holiday. I love your beach room and you have one of the best value beach resorts in The Philppines.


Matt and David, thanks for a great time! Monad Shoal was an amazing place, but the group agreed that the macro life and GATO ISLAND were also some of the best dive experiences ever.

When we go back, let's do the wrecks, more Gato, and more Monad!
