COMPLETE TRAVEL INFORMATION

Diving in Puerto Galera, Philippines

Puerto Galera is the place in the Philippines that first became famous in the diving world, and divers from all over the world quickly flocked to the diving resorts that mushroomed out of the soil in this small area. It is today one of the Philippines' most popular destinations for divers as it is easy to get here. There is fantastic macro diving here. Reefs with corals, sponges and other invertebrates are home to all kinds of marine life. Fish, crustaceans, octopuses, nudibranchs, flatworms and a lot of other fun can be experienced here. Occasional wrecks and the diving is varied with drop offs, reef slopes and coral gardens. There are also large areas of sand and mud here and there, interspersed with oases with corals and reefs. Here there are fish of all imaginable sizes, colors and shapes, even sometimes reef sharks, turtles, tuna, barracuda and other species are sometimes seen, but also stingrays, eagle rays, manta rays with luck. Even thresher sharks and tiger sharks have been seen in these waters.

The invertebrates, cephalopods, nudibranchs, crustaceans and echinoderms dominate together with sponges, sea urchins and various corals or sea urchins. The diversity of species is fantastic and all dive sites are relatively close so there are rarely long trips. The diving is varied and one day is rarely the same as the next. But with the help of experienced guides with familiar eyes and knowledge of marine life, you will be able to experience a lot of fun and excitement with a variety of strange animals that you might not even have thought existed.

Puerto Galera is a real diving paradise and you can actually go here all year round as the weather is relatively stable and the area is very calm and peaceful. If it's windy, there's almost always an alternative. For those of you who want to extend the trip either at the beginning or after, it is entirely possible and we will help you find good solutions for that.
