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.

What the scientists have to say about Puerto Galera’s biodiversity!

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 co 6nducted 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.

What they say about us

"El Galleon – Nice enough rooms / resort, clean and comfortable. ‘More than adequate’ and all staff were exceedingly helpful.

Dive Centre was a slick operation & very professional, with well-structured diving. Easy to do 4 dives / day with dive sites only 10 mins away from the resort, it was great to be able to go back to your room between dives.

Exceedingly good corals & an abundance of fish life, all very colourful. Many shoals of fish, but no big stuff seen. Lovely canyon dives, some had healthy currents. ‘Hole in the wall’ dive site was great. "

What’s been happening here this week

What a fun few days it was for Alli’s “Dream Team” John, Grace, Reesa and Faith! Everyone got to experience the beautiful underwater world of PG.

With an extra shorty wet suit and warmth sunshine, Qi Ding got through OW and AOW courses even when the water temperature was 23 degreeC--of course being a good sport also helped;) It was great fun and only the beginning of her diving adventures. Enjoy the underwater world!

It was wonderful to Discover Scuba with OceaneHakym and Kyal. On on to more underwater adventures…

He’s back….

After two years of his OW course, Xingxing Xu decided to take the next step. He did a Reactivated course to fresh up his skills and knowledge before carry on with his AOW and Nitrox courses. Well done and we'll be glad to see him next time for some other fun!

Thanks to the Arjan Kroon (the Candyman) for this photo of something very special that has popped up recently. Can you see what it is?

Ocean Dive Supply in Cebu

Ocean Dive Supply Philippines had their annual Staff meeting in Cebu in the weekend. Only missing was Krizthel from PG who took care of recording the diving and Melgy in Coron that could not make it.

After the more serious part of the weekend where Tommy went through how the stores are doing, sales training, work procedures and marketing the staff went for a city tour of Cebu.  Dinner of course was a highlight with all 24 together having Pasta and Pizza in the new Time Square area of Cebu.

No mobile phones where allowed during Tommy’s presentation.
