What a great time with SolCalScuba! Lots of fantastic dives in our amazing biodiversity in Puerto Galera with a great group of folks.

We spent a wonderful evening with the gang from SoCalScuba as we celebrated American Thanksgiving with a scrumptious Turkey dinner and all the trimmings prepared by Chef Jamie and his team.

What has our Divemaster Intern, Elliot been up to this week?

It’s been a busy week with Asia Divers as we enjoyed the company of SoCalScuba from America. Myself and Elly were paired with the PADI Open Water divers in the group. Along with showing them a great time, we focused on improving their air consumption and buoyancy skills. We were able to show them the best of our fantastic reefs and watch them improve over the week. It was sad to see a great group of people leave but I enjoyed being able to watch my group of divers improve each day.

I’ve also had the pleasure of a visit from my own dad, who has been desperate to dive this spectacular coast line and make a special visit to Verdi Island. For me to be able to bring him along on the dives and show him why Asia Divers is one of the best dive centres we’ve been to has been very special for us. Only two more weeks until I leave Asia Divers now so I’m trying to finish my amazing time here with as many dives and memories as I can.

This year’s DEMA was very successful in terms of catching up with our travel agents and business associates from all over the world, but spending time with some of our great friends made it even more special. With John Comerford, Chona Baret, Sue Goodman, Karen and Ray Hopton. John, Ray and Karen used to spend a lot of time here in the early years and we’re an important part of what we have become today…thank you!

Dive Travel – Dive The Best!

Asia Divers has booked some spots on Discovery Palawan for a 7-day trip to Tubbataha Reefs. The trip is May 16-22, 2019 with 5 days of diving on South and North Tubbataha Reefs.

This is the best diving in the Philippines, don’t think anyone will argue about that. Beautiful walls and reef tops with plenty of corals and of course the pelagics cruising along the wall and out in blue water. In the past trip we have seen plenty of Sharks, Mantas and of course the real highlight, Whalesharks.

It’s been a bit of a busy week for us here at Asia divers, with two groups from different sides of the world.

Bestdive from Warsaw Poland had an awesome time with us, diving all the usual spots with a great trip to Verde Island. They also seamed to enjoy a few nights in the point bar, and their last night saw a fair few shots downed as well a few T-shirts for shots.

Joanna (Joasia ) Drozd-Piekarowicz celebrated her 100th dive with us and was so happy with her T-shirt. Well done and thanks for visiting us!

After a few days with our Polish friends, Udive from Taipei, Taiwan arrived and boy did these guys like to dive. Most did all four day dives, with a few night dives for good measure.

They also did a three dive day at Verde with BBQ. Udivers enjoyed communal meals in the restaurant in the early evening with a few bevies but really let go on their last night in the Point Bar and we couldn’t help but join in! See you next time!
