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.

PADI Certificates of Excellence

Certificates of Excellence are not granted often by PADI: ask any instructor how many they have, and chances are they will say none. However the instructors at TSD regularly receive these awards. Below are only some of the certificates we have received so far. Click to enlarge and see what previous customers have had to say about us!

Project Aware 2009 International Environmental Achievement Award

The International Environmental Achievement Award honors dive operators around the world who display commitment and excellence in their efforts to protect underwater environments within business operations and their community.

"The Environment Achievement Award is about rewarding vision, excellence and pursuit of conservation. More importantly, this award ensures the enjoyment of underwater environments for future generations."
Dr. Drew Richardson, Chairman, Project AWARE Foundation.

PADI Go Eco Status

TSD 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.


Joanne Marston, Manager, of Project AWARE Asia Pacific added, “We are pleased to recognize Thresher Shark Divers as a Go ECO Operator. We look forward to working with them to implement environmental best practices and educate tourists about how they can travel responsibly.”
