As one of the most beautiful Puerto Galera resorts and hotels, Scandi Divers (Scandinavian Divers) is located on the beautiful tropical island Mindoro, about 150 kilometers ( 90 miles) – south of Manila in the Philippines, far from the noise and smog of the big cities. Mindoro is one of the last tropical places left on earth that’s not yet overrun by tourists.
Here you can enjoy the amazing hospitality and warmth of the local English speaking population while taking in the diving experiences of a lifetime (but you don’t have to dive to stay with us). All at a surprisingly reasonable cost. Our dive resort is right at the edge of the water on Big La Laguna, the most beautiful white sandy beach on Northern Mindoro.

The Turtles of Puerto Galera
Puerto Galera and in particular Big La Laguna Bay provides a perfect environment for turtles! Hawksbill Turtles, and Green Sea Turtles are regularly seen while diving in the waters of Puerto Galera, and just a few meters away from Scandi Divers, you can often see them when snorkeling!
Some information about Green Sea Turtles: Green turtles are named not by the color of their shell which is brown but the color of their skin. They are large ( up to 315 kg. or 700 pounds ) are listed as endangered. The adults eat grasses and algae. They mate every 2 to 4 years close to the beach,we are lucky to have this turtle nesting on our beach. They typically dig a pit in the sand and leave 100-200 eggs. The eggs hatch in less than 2 months and the turtles scamper into the sea.
