Having considered many options in Puerto Galera for my dive trip I plumped for Badladz at Muelle Pier after reading the previous reviews and sending a couple of emails which were promptly responded to by Gavin.

We were in touch with Gavin a few weeks before arriving to Puerto Galera and then planned the training session. Unfortunately I had a cold and had to postpone the sessions to the last days of our stay. Thanks to the help of the owner and the instructor, it was possible and we did it on time.

Going by the mosytly positive reviews this is a great place for divers. Its got friendly efficient cheerful staff and good food in a tranquil environment. Sadly the thin wooden partion walls between rooms easily lets the sound of the Tv and neigbours talking be heard. Hearing the neigbours TV all night does not make for a good rest. Its... More

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.

Hi ChristyChenRui, Better late than never! haha. Thanks for taking the time to share about your diving experience.
