Asia Divers and El Galleon PADI Diving Resorts in Puerto Galera.

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,where you can enjoy comfortable  accommodation starting as low as $59 a night

The diving here is some of the best in the Philippines and Asia.

PADI Diving in the Philippines

El Galleon Beach Resort is home to Asia Divers, which is a Career Development Center and can teach scuba diving all the way from Bubblemakers for the kids to instructor level courses. Whether you would like to learn to dive or to improve and fine-tune your existing skills, this is the resort for you.

A survey by the Philippine Government found that anyone diving in Puerto Galera is almost certain to come and dive here again.

Scuba diving in Puerto Galera is the best in the Philippines.

The Philippines is home to the most biologically diverse waters on Earth and the Verde Island Passage – the narrow body of water separating Luzon and Mindoro islands – is a biodiversity hotspot!

Just recently The California Academy of Sciences conducted an expedition in our area “The 2015 Verde Island Passage Marine Biodiversity Expedition: Puerto Galera. The expedition, the CAS said in a statement, affirms that the Philippines is the "center of the center" of marine biodiversity. "The Philippines is jam-packed with diverse and threatened species – it's one of the most astounding regions of biodiversity on Earth," says Terry Gosliner, PhD, senior curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the CAS and a Principal Investigator of the expedition.

Congratulations to Peter Zheng’s group of eight from China for completing their PADI OW and AOW courses here.  We’re looking forward to having Peter back with us again in July with even more folks! 


Peter was very happy to have a new T-shirt from us to go home with!

Looking good in their scuba kit are Renaud & Ilan Gabay. Dad and Lad started off with the PADI Advanced Open Water, and then moved on to Deep Specialty combined with a Nitrox course. That kept them busy for a few days. Well done guys!

Congrats to Hilde Hansen for her personal diving milestone of 200 dives. Here she is pictured with hubby Torstein just about to depart on the second part of their holiday to Boracay. We hope you have a great time!

Father and son, Arne and Storm Strauss decided to learn to dive and do the PADI Open Water diver course together and what a great location to do it in. Congratulations!!

Andy has been keeping himself very busy this past month with many students from China. Above Huang Yang and Wang Bo are doing the PADI OW course.  If you need a very professional Chinese speaking instructor to teach your diving course here at Asia Divers please contact us at instructors@asiadivers.com
Andy had the pleasure of having his aunt and brother-in-law here for a visit and he took them out on a “Discover Scuba”.
