All up these guys are in the right location, know what they’re doing and are doing it right. Would recommend them to any qualified or potential first time divers. Getting there: from Manila the trip takes roughly four hours. For a weekend break you can leave at 8am Saturday morning and be diving by 1pm. The ferry to Puerto Galera... More

Great little place, away from the madness elsewhere. The diving was good with an excellent dive guide and surprisingly good coral gardens. All in in all Badladz is a friendly and professionally run operation I am pleased to recommend to anyone looking to dive, or just hang, in Puerto Galera.

I sincerely apologize to both of the Gavins that I delayed to post this review for a year! My husband and I always talked about our diving experience there and wanted to leave a review. It's my very first (and second) scuba diving experience and it wasn't easy! I'm totally not a scuba diving person... I didn't even feel comfortable... More

Hi ChristyChenRui, Better late than never! haha. Thanks for taking the time to share about your diving experience. We have many students who are apprehensive about scuba diving just like you and say that they had a great experience with Gavin. It says a lot that you still think about and talk about diving at Badladz even a year afterwards!... More

I stayed at the Badladz Dive Resort in Puerto Galera in March and I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about the experience. The food is excellent with a mix of options from American, Mexican, English and traditional Filipino food. The staff are incredibly friendly and always willing to help out with just about anything, power outlet adapters,... More

Muelle isn't the party or the beach part of Puerto Galera, but it is right in the middle of the two. A quick trike taxi ride (~100 pesos) either east or west takes you to Sabang or White Beach. Muelle is nice and quiet, and all the rooms have a little table out front with an amazing view over the... More

Located right next to the Muelle Pier of Puerto Galera, first thing my wife and me noticed about Badladz Dive Ressort is the breathtaking view over the bay which is supposed among the most beautiful ones in the world. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly and competent staff downstairs in the restaurant and they kept us happy during our... More

If you like to have the party scene on your doorstep, you're probably better off at Sabang or White Beach. This place overlooks tranquil and picturesque Muelle Bay, a stone's throw from the ferry pier and walking distance to Puerto Galera 'Town' with a nearby supermarket, bars, and other facilities. You can catch a jeepney to Sabang (apparently not to... More

We (a group of 6 divers and 1 snorkeler) booked a two-dive trip to Verde Island. The diving was fantastic, and the lunch provided on board was delicious. The staff are friendly and professional. Would dive with them again!

I recently took a dive trip with a group of friends to Verde Island and had a fantastic time with the friendly and professional dive staff. The hot towels in between dives are a stroke of genius! The food both on the dive trip and in the restaurant is also excellent.
