A heaven for scuba divers with facinating marine life.

Puerto Galera is one the easiest dive destinations to reach from Manila. It is situated 80 miles south of Manila on the Island of Mindoro. There are three ways to get to Puerto Galera from Manila:

PRIVATE TRANSFER

The private van transfer service is the quickest and the most convenient way to reach Puerto Galera.  An air-conditioned van will be waiting at the airport or your hotel to pick you up. The driver will be at the exit or the lobby carrying a sign with your name.
