We are a small friendly team aiming to bring all types of SCUBA diving to the enthusiastic diver. We aim for the highest standards and keep your hobby interesting by offering some varied alternatives from the standard dive centre. Twin tank diving is not all about deep or decompression diving, indeed it’s about so much more. We offer both single and twin tank diving courses and guiding with accommodation. « less

My 7th or 8th dive trip here diving with Asia Divers. The "loading dock" (it is a little like a conveyor belt) area is spacious, has a nice wooden deck so barefoot or booties friendly. The staff do everything but wear your gear for you! The guides are long-timers who really know the sites as well as the conditions except... More

I went through the open water certification course with John Barratt a few years ago and hadn't been back to the water since then. I live in northern Japan and the tsunami kind of dampened my excitement about the water for awhile. A buddy and I went down again last week for 2 days of diving. John gave us a... More

I would highly reccommend Diving Puerto Galera to anyone wanting to dive in Puerto Galera, especially if you are looking to do courses. Steve is an absolute wealth of knowledge, and a fantastic instructor! Our dive trip to Coron was excellent!

I did my Advanced Recreational Trimix course with Steve at Diving Puerto Galera in Sabang. It was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend anyone interested in getting into twin tank/tech diving to check these guys out.
