PADI logo PADI 5 Star CDC


Welcome to Thresher Shark Divers, the premier PADI Five Star Instructor Development and Scuba Diving Center located in the beautiful island of Malapascua, Cebu - the home of the famous thresher sharks!

If you're looking for an unforgettable diving experience, you've come to the right place. Our highly experienced and knowledgeable dive instructors will guide you through the stunning underwater world of Malapascua, known for its rich biodiversity and unique marine species, including the elusive thresher sharks. We offer daily diving in small groups with experienced PADI Divemasters and Instructors, many of them with 5,000+ dives around Malapascua alone. 

At Thresher Shark Divers, we offer a wide range of courses to cater to all levels of divers, from beginners to professionals. Our PADI Five Star Instructor Development Center status ensures that we meet the highest standards in scuba diving education, equipment and safety. A full range of PADI training is available including Instructor and Technical, with one of the most active dive internship programs in the country.

Our facilities include modern equipment, air-conditioned classrooms, and comfortable accommodation for a hassle-free and enjoyable stay. We also offer customized diving packages, tailored to your preferences and interests, ensuring that you get the most out of your diving experience. Malapascua is the only place in the world where thresher sharks can be seen daily. And there is plenty more on offer: wreck and reefs, wall dives and macro dives, drift dives and night dives. There is a little bit of everything. Group sizes are kept small and courses are often taught one on one. 

But what truly sets us apart is our dedication to conservation and sustainable diving practices. We work closely with local communities to promote awareness and protection of the marine environment, including the thresher sharks, whose presence has made Malapascua a world-renowned diving destination. 

We have spacious Filipino style banka boats as well as a speed boat, offer coffee, tea and drinking water, shaded areas, ample space to set up your gear, and of course we carry first aid kits, phones and oxygen. 

Dive shop facilities include internet, charging stations and a safe for valuables, as well as a retail area. The beachfront is home to the Wilde Bar for coffee, shakes and cocktails. Oscar’s Restaurant is upstairs overlooking the beach, which makes it great for sundowners.

So why wait? Book your dive with Thresher Shark Divers today and experience the thrill of diving with thresher sharks, while supporting a responsible and eco-friendly diving center.
