We’ve been coming to El Galleon and diving with Asia Divers since 2001. We stumbled on it by chance when the British Foreign Office suggested that our original destination of Indonesia was no longer safe. AND what a find Asia Divers was !! We never even unpacked our cases on our first visit and it was dive: dive: dive. The beautiful Canyons dives reminiscent of UK diving (minus the dry suits) with the exhilarating currents, lush soft corals and abundance of large fish in the deep cool Fish Bowl. We just loved it all and have returned so many times often bringing lots of UK divers with us.
SO what is our favourite dive site and could we ever even agree. For me it has to be the Hot Springs at Chicken Feather Island; Terry can’t be persuaded in any direction other than Verdi Island and Brian just loves the high energy drifts of the Canyons – so long as he is going with the current !!!. (Brian not being one for exerting himself at the best of times :-)). And as for Queenie – well all the dives are simply ‘Just the Bollocks’ which translates as totally 100% FAB.
We have been here at least 9 times and are already planning our next trips. This year diving with Alison has been excellent and she gets our 5star rating and lots of thanks from all of us for planning a great dive itinerary. It was also good to catch up with Pete, Dave, Sam and the crew at El Galleon and Asia Divers many of whom were here when we first visited.
Looking forward to seeing you all again next year – Caroline and Terry Birtles , Brian Anderson and Jane Poole (Queenie)
