Are you looking for the next adventure in your life? Why don’t you explore one of the worlds top 10 diving destinations? Kona Honu Divers is inviting you to come explore the underwater world in Malapascua. Sign up today, as space in this resort is limited!

Evolution Dive Resort
 is the #1 rated dive operation in Malapascua.  Their focus is on environmental responsibility and training divers to be stewards of the ocean. In addition to a world-class dive operation, the resort features a variety of accommodations topped off with a delicious dining experience.

What will I see:  On the early morning dives we head out into the open pelagic to see Thresher Sharks who migrate up from the deep water to get rid of parasites.  A fantastic place to view rare little critters like the blue ring octopus, mandarin fish, and a variety of seahorses.  On the house reef, you can see seahorses on practically every dive!

Who should go: The experienced diving enthusiast who just completed a week of diving in Dumaguete.  The diving enthusiast who was unable to join us in Dumaguete and is looking for some big animal encounters like thresher sharks and pelagic manta rays in addition to the abundance of macro critters.  Malapascua was named in the Top 10 places to dive, come find out why!


Where is it?: 
Malapasqua is a tiny island in the Philippines and is alive with a culture that has remained more or less unchanged for generations.  It has no cars, no banks, no health centers, and no Starbucks.  This is a true dive vacation where the focus is on diving, relaxation, and socializing with your fellow travel group
