Thanks Mango Lo (Diving Express Hong Kong) for organising this group of 13 to stay and dive with us, lots of laughs and fun last week and great night with hot pot at El Galleon!

Peak Performance Buoyancy – Mermaid style

peak performance buoyancy asia divers puerto galeraUnderwater somersaults, buoyancy games, finning like a mermaid and generally just having a lot of fun underwater was exactly what Jackie Hughes needed on her relaxing long weekend trip over from Manila. She successfully completed her PPB course with Sabine and now really feels like a little mermaid. We even have an underwater sign for it now…

The PADI Peak Performance buoyancy course is a great way to get back in to diving or just fine tune your in water position. For more details please follow the link.

In-between a PPB course, a couple DPV dives and relaxing, Jackie had a chance to take this awesome photo. Check out the full moon rising with the Point Bar and our dive shop below. What a cool photo!

Puerto Galera has had some amazingly colourful sunsets recently….it’s that time of the year again! Nice to see Andy Xie out with his camera.

Great to see Glenn and Sheila back with us again and for Glenn to earn a well deserved 400 dive t-shirt in which most of those dives have been with us! There we’re a few nervous moments for us when we discovered we didn’t have the right size shirt in stock, but a miracle happened just in time. We hope to see Sheila get hers next time…

Congratulations to Larry Bird and Kris on their engagement. Larry romantically popped the question to Kris underwater on a dive in the Maldives. So sweet, and I guess you can figure out her answer…

2019 Photo Workshop – Sneak Peek

underwater photography workshop 2019 asia divers puerto galera

 

Join us June 16-23, 2019 for our Photo workshop with Phil Rudin and Beth Watson. There will be hands on workshops on many different subjects including:

Black Backgrounds : The key is to block out all natural light so only the light reaching the camera sensor is produced by strobes or torches aimed at the subject. Camera settings, strobe positioning, composition and subject location all play a role in achieving a black background. Join us to learn more!

For details please see the 2019 Underwater Photography Workshop page, or contact  [email protected] for inquiries.
