Welcome to the best resort & liveaboard diving adventure the Philippines has to offer… Welcome to Puerto Galera, Anilao, Apo Reef, & Coron!
The first part of our trip will be a 4 night stay at the luxurious Puerto Galera Resort. Puerto Galera is well known for its numerous scuba diving sites and has some of the most diverse coral reef diving in Asia, located at the very heart of the “Coral Triangle”. The area also features numerous pocket beaches and stunning tropical scenery. More recently, in 2005, Puerto Galera hit the international tourism limelight when it was given “The Most Beautiful Bay in the World” award by UNESCO, only the third bay in Southeast Asia to receive this prestigious rating. Declared a reservation area in 1973, Puerto Galera lies on the northern tip of the island of Oriental Mindoro, approximately 110 km south of Manila. Most of the prime diving spots are located in Sabang, one of Puerto Galera’s twelve coastal districts. Mindoro Island is separated from Luzon by the Verde Island Passage. Waters are flushed by the current of the West Philippine Sea, claimed by many to be the center of marine biodiversity in Asia. This is resulting in strong currents making the area well known for its spectacular and exhilarating drift dives. Puerto Galera also boasts over 180 species of nudibranch as well as numerous fish and turtle species, making it a prime destination for underwater photography. Behind the beautiful beaches are the huge and generally unexplored mountain ranges of central Mindoro.
