Puerto Galera From Manila is about 2 hours by road and 1 hour by boat from Batangas.
El Galleon Dive Resort and dive centre, Asia Divers, are renowned for their serene and quaint beachfront surroundings fronting Small Lalaguna Beach in Puerto Galera. Puerto Galera is one of the leading scuba diving locations in the Philippines, offering some of the best diving in Asia. There is no better place to experience this than our new diving platform which is right on the water. On the end of the platform, we have a pontoon for our boats to dock on, which makes it very easy for divers to get on and off the boats. EL Galleon Resort has thirty air-conditioned rooms that blend into the tropical hillside. Majestic views of Sabang Bay and Small Lalaguna Beach, a restaurant which extends to the water’s edge offering a great value in European and local cuisine, a swimming pool, and a lovely outdoor spa. We also have luxury Villas which are only a five minute walk from our resort. There are dives for all levels, from easy training dives amongst pristine coral to high-voltage drift dives, to muck dives. We are also only a 20 minute boat ride to Verde Island which is one of the most amazing dive sites in the world, and over there you usually see some of the bigger fishes; schooling jacks, tuna, sweetlips and snappers. Verde Island Passage is home to 60% of the world’s known shorefish species, and even as much has yet to be explored in its waters.
