With a wide variety of marine life and its warm climate, Asia Divers provides a year-round paradise.
Asia Divers and El Galleon Resorts are located in Puerto Galera on the North East tip of Mindoro. Puerto Galera was originally a fishing community. Then in the 1980s, the Philippines Government discovered just how many species of fish and corals there are here and declared the entire area a Marine Reserve. Once a thriving fishing village, Puerto Galera soon became the premier scuba diving destination in the Philippines.
The Philippine Department of Tourism became involved and convinced the villagers to diversify and to become involved in tourism. Puerto Galera had two big things going in its favour is its beauty and the marine sanctuary.
It was around this time that the El Galleon resort came into existence along with Asia Divers who have been catering for top class vacations ever since. The El Galleon resort is a premier diving resort just a couple of hours South of Manila, providing unashamed luxury at prices that most Westerners would expect to pay for a two star hotel. Hotel rooms in the resort start for as little as $59 a night.
The diving here is unquestionably the best of anywhere in Oriental Mindoro and some would say all the Philippines or Asia.
Part of the El Galleon beach resort is Asia Divers which is the diving school within the resort. One of the premier PADI diving schools in the Philippines. Here we teach beginners, provide Instructors to help you explore our marine world or train up to full PADI Instructor. One of only two schools in the Philippines qualified to this level.
A survey by the Philippine Government found that anyone diving in Puerto galera is almost certain to come and dive here again.
