The Thresher sharks in Puerto Galera are back and WOW are they ever!! There have been numerous up-close interactions and sightings over the past few weeks. It looks like there could be five different sharks around including one juvenile. Our divers have been super happy seeing these beautiful creatures up close. Scooter dives have been epic with the scooter team just cruising along with the threshers almost bumping into them on a few occasions. Best time of the year to see them is from now until April…the sooner the better!
It’s very good news that the Alert Level had been lowered to 3 and we’re hoping to see it drop even more soon. Puerto Galera has had no affect whatsoever from the Volcano and we hope that everyone can get back to a normal routine in Batangas. So…book your holiday in PG now!
