Thresher Shark Divers has been operational since 2004, and in that time we have become known as one of the best and most professional dive operations in the Philippines. The PADI awards we now regularly receive are a testament to that. These includes the most prestigious  of their awards, finalist for two years running for OUTSTANDING DIVE CENTER BUSINESS.

What better place to do your PADI IDC?!

PADI Go Eco Status

Go Eco OperatorTSD was awarded Project AWARE GO Eco Operator Status in March 2009. Project AWARE Foundation, a non-profit environmental organization working with divers to conserve underwater environments, launched the Go ECO campaign into the Asia Pacific region in 2005. The main objective of Go ECO is for dive centres to minimize their impact on the aquatic ecosystem whilst contributing to environmental, economic and cultural conservation. Dive centres are required to meet best practice environmental guidelines and commit to the Project AWARE Go ECO philosophy.
