Today saw the launching of Scandi Divers Resort’s new boat. This is now the second boat in our ‘fleet’.
The boat was originally built in Palawan, and was sailed to Puerto Galera three years ago by our friend Steve Hunter. Scandi Divers purchased the vessel and we have been on a mission to resurrect it.
The boat now has a fully covered dive deck and can accommodate 12 divers and their equipment.The boat is also fully equipped with VHF radio, Emergency Oxygen and First Aid. Off-season improvements will be a head and a small galley for tea and coffee during surface intervals.
We are looking forward to having many diving adventures at Verde Island, Maricaban Island, Chicken Feather Island and even further afar!
We have some video footage of the boat launch and some fast cruising around Puerto Galera, so we’ll share that with you as soon as we can!

Scandi Divers Resort dive team recently attended the annual Greenfins Seminar, to show their support for Greenfins marine conservation efforts. Puerto Galera has some of the most beautiful reefs in the country and it is vital that resorts, residents and tourists alike make the effort to respect and preserve them, and the incredible marine life that flourishes in these reefs.
Green Fins, internationally coordinated by Reef-World, are the only recognised environmental set of standards with a comprehensive management approach to provide guidance and support for business owners and national authorities to promote best practices.
Congratulations to Nigel Bot and his girlfriend Jonalyn Quiles for completing their DSD and discovering the amazing underwater world Puerto Galera has to offer! We hope to see them back soon to further their training on the PADI Open Water course.
