PADI Dive Resort in Puerto Galera

El Galleon Dive Resort in the Philippines


After more than a quarter of a century of providing our guests with some of the finest diving in the Philippines if not all of Asia, we do feel we can talk with some authority about the scuba here.

What makes this place so very special is an ocean current which starts in the mid Pacific and slowly wanders in a South Easterly direction past our resort.. This current is the Verde Island Passage and it brings us fresh water which is highly oxygenated and brim full of nutrients. As a result we have more varieties of fish on our doorstep than are in the whole of the Red Sea.

It is this current that has made us one of the premier dive locations and people come here all year round to scuba dive or to learn to dive.

Unlike most countries, the Philippines only has two seasons in the year, the Wet Season and the Dry Season, but as the water temperature here is a constant 24C to 28C it matters little when you come here.

We are a PADI Premier dive centre and qualified to train to all levels from such basic courses as the ‘Bubble Maker’ diving course, introducing children as young as eight to our sport right through to becoming a Full PADI Instructor.

Whatever your level of diving experiance, you can be sure we can offer you all manner of diving within your limits, including such things as Nitrox enriched air which prolongs each dive and therefore gives you much greater value for money when you pay per dive.

We also have a Technical Dive school which will train you in a large variety of specialities such as scooter diving, for fun or Trimix diving which will enable you to dive to depths simply not possible with air.
