The Best of The Philippines: Puerto Galera & Dumaguete

Nov 18, 2023Nov 30, 2023
Starting at: $4700

Puerto Galera diving offers a wide variety of dive sites, accessible via a 5 or 10-minute boat ride. It is a hub of marine biodiversity, offering some of the best diving in the Philippines – including macro, critters and wide-angle.  It is home to a variety of dive operators and dive resorts and hotels that are sure to suit the most discerning dive enthusiast and photographer.

The frogfish capital of the Philippines, Dumaguete, with its black volcanic sandy beaches, offers divers a great opportunity to see unique macro marine life on sandy patches, hard coral reefs, and artificial reefs (including cars, various structures, and more!). From Dumaguete, you can dive over 20 coastal dive sites, the healthy reefs around Apo Island with over 400 documented species of corals (that’s 65% of the world’s corals!), the vibrant walls of Siquijor, and snorkeling with whale sharks in Oslob!

Both locations provide great diving for all experience levels, from beginner to advanced divers. We will be splitting our time between Puerto Galera & Dumaguete.
