The sun is out and so are we! What a fantastic way to start the day…a nice cruise into the Canyons with just enough current to bring out the big fish, but not so much that you’re blasting through your air and your time. To top it all off we had a nice encounter with 4 very large bump head parrot fishes… with Robin, Gabi and Meinrad.
Off-Season Special still available until August 31st 2019

What’s been going on at El Galleon Dive Resort & Asia Divers
Alli and Elly and Dave spent last week in Beijing at the ADEX Beijing Ocean Fiesta with the Philippines Department of Tourism Booth representing Asia Divers/EL Galleon and Tech Asia. We we’re excited to let the Beijing diving community learn more about what we have to offer.
Long time family friends of Tommy, Daira Lovstrom and Freja Lovstrom came here to get certified. Both Ruben and Arthur jumped in and made it a fun course for everyone.
Jason got all “trashy” as he completed the PADI Dive Against Debris specialty on the PADI Women’s dive Day clean up dive.

Scootering through the DPV Specialty Instructor Course
Boys and Toys… Sebastien had lots of fun scootering around our reefs and we actually found some amazing critters on the way… 3 very large stone fishes mating, a huge green turtle with yellow remoras attached, and at our safety stop we were joined by not one but two cockatoo wasp fishes. What an epic dive to conclude all his specialties.
