Scuba Diving in Sabang, Puerto Galera
Puerto Galera offers around 40 world class scuba diving sites within a few minutes boat ride of Papa Fred’s Beach Resort. The sites are between 4 meters to 40 meters depth and the water temperatures range between 26 – 29°C. The tide exchange is from a few centimeters up to 2 meters.
The currents in the area are often brisk and unpredictable, creating conditions which may at times prove challenging for novice divers, although shallow, no-current or very slight current dives are always available for beginners. The visibility ranges from 15-25 meters on average and on good days even up to 35 meters.
Big fish like White tip Sharks, Barracudas, Tunas, even Eagle Rays and Turtles can be seen on dive sites like the popular Canyons, Shark Caves, Boulders, especially on a drift dive during big tide exchanges.
On the house reef wreck, you can expect to see many fish life like batfish, angelfish, surgeonfish, wrasses, butterfly fish and other reef dwellers. Exotic fish like Spanish Dancer, harlequin ghost-pipefish, various frogfish, fire gobies and blue-ribbon eels are also often seen here.
For an underwater videographer/photographers’ paradise with all the varied species of soft corals, gorgonians, crinoids, colorful sponges and turnicates and shrimps.
For almost 50 years Puerto Galera has attracted experts studying the ecostructure of micro-organsims, marine life, animals and plants.
The University of the Philippines Marine Biological Station was set up in 1934 and in 1974, the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program International declared the area a research center and the reefs a marine reserve. The great ecological complexity and the abundant species have earned Puerto Galera a reputation as the best dive area in the Philippines.
