Far from the noise and smog of the city, Puerto Galera is a secluded tropical getaway where tourists are few, and the scuba diving is unmatched. The wide sandy beaches give way to crystal clear waters, where diving within the reef transports you to a marine world teeming with color and life. After a day spent underwater with wily sea turtles and neon-colored fish, you can relax in our resort accommodations – by the pool perhaps, while enjoying endless skies painted with the warm colors of the setting sun.
Welcome to our incredible Puerto Galera Resort on the tropical island of Mindoro, about 150 kilometers (90 miles) south of Manila. We are Scandi Divers Resort, nestled on gorgeous Big La Laguna Beach, where the sand is white and the diving is simply stunning.
We have so much to offer!
Discovering our two kilometer long reef is undoubtedly the highlight for most guests at our Puerto Galera diving resort. A dive on the reef brings you face to face with more biodiversity than the entire Caribbean and Great Barrier Reef combined! Indeed, our Puerto Galera “backyard” is recognized as offering the best diving in all of the Philippines, making Scandi Divers the finest Puerto Galera resort.
Your Puerto Galera adventure will immerse you in a colorful underwater world filled with an incredible variety of corals and more species of fish than is possible to count. Diving on the reef will also likely give you an opportunity to swim with the giant sea turtles that nest on the beach near the resort.
With over 35 diving sites within ten minutes of our Puerto Galera resort, you are never far from the action. If you don’t already have a diving certificate, we offer diving courses on all levels. We specialize in certifying new diving enthusiasts in the internationally recognized Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI). Our experienced diving instructors teach in English, Dutch, Chinese, Tagalog, German, Hebrew and all Scandinavian Languages.
