- the Pearl of Mindoro - is famous for its many excellent beaches, coral
reefs and exquisite dive sites with something extraordinary to offer to
both the experienced as well as first-time divers.
life is wonderful with more than 3,000 species of fish and marine animals.
In the waters you can see sharks, rays, moray eels, octopuses, and sea
snakes, along with numerous different species of fish such as clownfish,
groupers, surgeonfish, parrot fish, sweetlips, tuna etc. There are shallow
coral reef gardens, easily accessible, and an excellent experience for
snorkellers and underwater photographers.
Because of the tropical climate with average daytime temperatures of 27-33
degrees Celsius, diving is possible all year round.
Puerto Galera has some 30+ dive sites, and most of them can be reached by
boat within 10-15 minutes. The great variety in dive sites make certain
that divers with all levels of experience can have a magnificent and
challenging underwater adventure.
The following are a few of the exciting dive sites around Puerto Galera.
Note that there are more than 30 dive sites to be explored, so the list
should only be considered as an appetizer.
Verde Island (depth 5 to 60 meters)
This wonderful island is located in the middle of the channel between
Luzon and Mindoro. There are many beautiful dive sites around the island.
You will find beautiful walls with hard and soft corals, sponges and a
rich diversity of fish.
(depth 3 to 10 meters)
Coral Garden is situated off Long Beach. It is a beautiful dive site with
large formations of hard corals along with basket sponges and colorful
soft corals. A fantastic site for underwater photography with a high
variety of small fish.
Hole in the Wall (depth 12 to 19 mtrs.)
Drop into 9m of well-lit water, with fields of table corals as good as
anywhere in the world. The hole is about 1.5m high and 0.8m wide,
covered with multi-colored sponges and crinoids, leading to the Canyons.
The area teems with small reef fish, angelfish and butterflyfish. There
are male Titan Triggerfish guarding eggs in nests, shoals of parrotfish,
pennantfish, moorish idols, snappers, lionfish and several others.
The Canyons (depth 29 to 60 meters)
An advanced dive that needs a good dive guide to allow for the currents
to get you swept into position. Drift past the hole in the wall and race
over several small dop-offs covered in soft corrals and sponges. There
are a couple of smaller canyons where photographers can briefly shelter;
moray eels have been found here. The main reason for the dive is to see
the teeming fish life -- just about everything, including Six-banded
angelfish, royal and emperor angelfish. There are some large barrel
sponges and gorgonian sea fans in the deeper water.
Shark Caves (depth 25 to 30 meters)
The Shark Caves are located east of Escarceo Point. In the first cave at
25m you can find white tip reef sharks resting during daytime. Further
down is a second smaller cave where spotted sweet lips and blue spotted
rays can be found.
Manila Channel (depth 5 to 18 meters)
The Manila Channel is the channel between Medio and Paniquian Islands. The
dive begins in shallow water on a beautiful reef with hard and soft corals
and hundreds of small fish. Then you drift into the channel with the flood
tide of Verde Passage.
The Hills (depth 5 to 15 meters)
The Hills are located at the southeast end of the channel between Medio
Island and Coco Beach. This site is small and very well protected, and it
is made up of rocky corals, fans, sponges and many different kinds of hard
and soft corals. This is a really good site for macro photography.
(depth 3 to 18 meters)
Located close to the white beach of Big Lalaguna. A very nice reef with
plate and stag horn corals living in harmony with many species of small
fish. Sole fish and stargazers can be seen during night dives.
Sabang Wrecks (depth 18 meters)
On a sandy bottom lay the wooden hull of a Vietnamese fishing boat which
is covered with aquatic life. You will find yourself surrounded by damsel
fish and bigger fish like bat and surgeon fish. Close to the wreck is a
steel hull of a 12m sail boat that was submerged by a dive shop to create
a new wreck site. Both wrecks are great for night dives.
Sinandigan Wall (depth 10 to 30 meters)
Located at the southern edge of Escarceo Point. This is a real wall going
down to 30 meters with all kinds of corals and at least seven different
varieties of nudibranches as well as plenty of larger fish. It is a
perfect place for multi-level diving.
Talipanan Reef (depth 15 to 80 meters)
Talipanan Reef is located a 25 minutes boat trip west of Puerto Galera.
Here you can discover a pinnacle starting at 15m with a large variety of
hard and soft corals and small fish. It drops of to over 80m and different
sharks can often be observed during deeper dives.

Only 140 km south of Manila,
Anilao's proximity makes it a popular destination for weekend diving
trips. Even excursions are ideal in this southern town where resorts are
situated within short boat rides to excellent dive sites. Diving is mainly
in coral slopes and shallow gardens among sandy patches. Choose from any
of the 24 dive sites between the coast of Anilao and Maricaban Island. The
most popular site is the Cathedral (average of 60 ft.), a roofless cavern
with a blessed cross flanked by two large sea mounts. Ideal diving season
is from November until May.
It is located in Cagayancillo town, Palawan. Trips to Tubbattaha from
mid-March to mid-June are all vessel-based and require planning for a
minimum of six weeks prior to departure. To reach the place, take a
70-minute flight from Manila to Puerto Princesa City. From the airport, a
shuttle bus takes you to the dive boat. Boat ride from Puerto Princesa
City takes approximately 12 hours.

Seven enchanting lakes surrounded by craggy limestone cliffs attract
hundreds of nature lovers to Coron Reefs in Northern Palawan, near the
town of Coron.

shipwrecks sunk on September 24, 1944 by US Navy action. They range in
depth from the surface to 40M. This large variety offers exciting wreck
exploration for enthusiasts, from novice divers and snorkelers and
recreational divers to experienced TEC divers. Dive operators offer PADI
