Scuba Diving in Puerto Galera

Puerto Galera is widely recognised as having some of the best coral reef scuba diving in Asia. The Verde Passage, which separates Puerto Galera from the Philippines mainland is one of the most bio-diverse bodies of water on the planet!

The warm, nutrient-rich waters are home to dolphins, turtles, reef sharks, and literally thousands of species of fish, hard and soft corals, and incredible sea creatures of every shape, color and size.

With over forty dive sites within a few minutes boat ride of our resort, Puerto Galera is truly a scuba divers’ paradise. There are wrecks to be explored, drift dives, caves, muck dives and even technical diving sites.

Underwater photographers will really be in their element, as Puerto Galera is a treasure trove of macro marine life to rival any other in the world. Photographers keep coming back to Puerto Galera from all over the world looking for that perfect photo!

Recreational Scuba Diving

We do several fun dives each day, and let our divers decide which dive sites they would like to visit. Night dives are also available and are highly recommended. Dive sites like Sabang Wrecks offer a delightful view of what the ‘night-shift’ gets up to when the sun goes down and it’s time to find something to eat.

We also do day trips to the incredible Verde Island dive site, which is popularly acclaimed as the best dive site in Puerto Galera. The day trip usually consists of 2-3 dives with a delicious BBQ lunch on Verde Island during a surface interval. Not to be missed!
