We have two centre Holidays in the northern & southern Philippines.
We usually fly with Singapore Airlines (rated one of the best airlines in the world). Departing Heathrow to Manilla with a quick changeover in Singapore or Hong Kong.
We will then stay at Puerto Galleria on Sabang Beach with unlimited boat diving on local reefs and wrecks. Most of these sites are a mere 3 minutes run up to a Max of 15 minutes away from the dive centre. After several days at PG we then depart Puerto Galleria and then fly to Dumaguette on the Island of Negros in the far south of the Philippines.
Once again we will be diving local reefs by boat. The resort at Dumaguette has it’s own house reef with some fascinating critters. You are likely to easily find frog fish, sea spiders, flamboyant cuttlefish, mantis shrimps, and a plethora of colourful nudibranchs. On the last day we then sail and drive back to Manilla where we can enjoy the city prior to our flight home.
Diving in Puerto Galleria & Dumaguette is very special. Macro Photography is essential here. These small critters here that are not found elsewhere around the world is what bring Divers to the Philippines. We have completed four visits to these two locations and our divers are still amazed at the number of different types of fish and fauna that they continue to find.
The local Philippine custom is very friendly and they always have a smile and are happy to meet visitors. The food offered in the resort and the local eating places is varied with good selections of local dishes as well as continental style dishes. The night life for those that like to party in the evening is very lively and only a short walk away in Puerto Galleria. In Dumaguette you will need to go into the main city (Approx. 15 mins) by Motor-Trike or resort Taxi. The local Trike’s are the most enjoyable way to travel, its how the locals get about. The most interesting part of Trike is how many people can travel on just one Trike. I have counted 7 people on one, “not very safe but interesting to watch.
