It’s been an amazing week at the resort for the kids from Dubai. They have all left here very happy to have earned their diving or sailing certifications. We think it’s something to be very proud of!  Both of these activities are things they can keep active with, learn more about, and make the rest of their lives more fun with. Congratulations to the whole group, and thanks once again to Ralph Russell for choosing us for the 7th year in a row! El Galleon/Asia Divers have hosted many school groups over the years and have become well known in this specialty area. If you’re interested in doing the same for your school group please contact us.

During their “Week without Walls” the Dubai American Academy participated in community service projects at two local schools. This group painted a new classroom/computer room. Please have a look at our Facebook page to see more of the photos from this event at: and while you’re there, “Like us”

They brought many boxes from Dubai filled with school supplies for each grade, including pencils, crayons, sharpeners, notepads, markers and erasers. The kids were thrilled to get them.

Blankets were given out to some of the kids too.

The group also went on a day trip in the area so see some of the beautiful areas surrounding Puerto Galera. They got to visit Tamaraw waterfalls, ride in a cart pulled by a carabao, walk over a hanging bridge to see a Mangyon community and enjoy a fun afternoon swimming and eating.

The send off for the group was a Philippine cultural night on the platform. The Puerto Galera National High School dance troupe put on a wonderful performance for the kids along with two fire dancers, a great live band and a DJ to get everyone dancing, some Philippine delicacies and fireworks to end the night.
