Our PADI Diving Courses in Puerto Galera

Asia Divers Puerto Galera

The founders of Asia Divers had been one of the first to operate in Puerto Galera since the golden age of scuba diving in Mindoro – this was 30 years ago when the cove was exclusively an advanced divers’ playground.

Today, Asia Divers’ PADI diving courses welcome everyone from all backgrounds, skills, and ages to come and enjoy a piece of Puerto Galera’s incredible marine biodiversity and beautiful coastlines. We have prepared dozens of courses that will fit your needs – from absolute beginner to pro-diver looking to develop your career in the diving industry.

This article will cover the majority of diving courses that we offer, in which students are all under the supervision and training of Certified PADI Instructors.

Beginner Courses – Getting In The Water

A great part of scuba diving is trust. You must trust your instructors and follow their leadership; you must trust your equipment after you’ve checked it, but most importantly, you must trust yourself that you can operate the equipment properly and make low-risk decisions throughout the session.

Valuable lessons can be learned even as a beginner in the PADI Recreational Courses.

PADI Skin Diver

For children 8 years and above, the Skin Diver course is valuable to build trust and comfort with the underwater environment – think about the time when you first became confident enough to free dive in the deeper part of the swimming pool.

PADI Bubble Maker

Bubble Maker is the course where your child can become accustomed to the diving gear and breathing underwater. This early training is excellent to develop interest in scuba diving later on.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

Discover Scuba Diving is for those who have always wanted to try scuba diving at least once in their lives, but aren’t sure about making a commitment to the full PADI Open Water course with a globally-recognized certificate.

Another option is to take the PADI Scuba Diver course, which is part of the full PADI Open Water training. If you do well in this 2-day course, at the dive instructor’s discretion, you may credit (upgrade) this towards full certification later on.

Advanced Courses – For Serious Diving Business

The college equivalent to the PADI Open Water Diver course is the PADI Adventure Diver course. Learn skills in greater depth. You can opt for several course variations in this particular certification – from Rescue Diver and Emergency Transponders to becoming a Divemaster (minimum age of 18 years).

Underwater Photos Corner

We’ve had a fun time doing the PADI Digital Underwater photography course these past few days with Arthur Nash and Finn Marinkovich-Josey. Both students enjoyed taking photos with the Olympus Tough camera and housing and got some great results. They also got to practice some editing on their phones and tablets.

Arthur and Finn did their PADI Advanced course earlier on in the week, and then went right into the photo course. I was super pleased to see that not only we’re they taking some great photos, but they had excellent buoyancy and awareness under water.

Below are a few of Finn’s photos and we’ll have some from Arthur next week.

I liked this silhouette photo of the fish because of the stunning blue water and the sunburst.
