"What's the difference between dive lessons of PADI and SSI?", "Should I take PADI or SSI certfication?" and "Which is better? PADI or SSI?"
PADI and SSI -and hundreds of other agencies, are all internationally recognized, accepted and governed by organizations and commissions that set international diving learning standards. Choosing between agencies is really a matter of personal preference (and budget). What should really be considered by students and aspiring scuba divers is their INSTRUCTOR.

What makes Puerto Galera the perfect destination for scuba diving?
Puerto Galera’s close proximity to Metro Manila
This makes it the top choice for local divers, business travellers, families and couples on holiday.
Just 2.5 to 3 hours away from Manila, a day trip by private car or public transportation is certainly possible for those in a hurry and just want to get that dive fix. If enrolling to a 4 hour Discover Scuba Dive program, you can get here by 9am and be back in Manila by 5pm.
If travelling from outside the Philippines and on vacation, you can also make Puerto Galera your home base and do day trips to Metro Manila for out-of-water sightseeing.
The diversity in marine life and dive sites
More than 30 premiere dive sites and over 2,500 species of marine life. What more can you really ask for?
It’s an everyday kind of thing to make a serious drift, wreck, macro photography, deep dive IN JUST ONE DIVE.
Common to see surgeons, butterflies, bats, angels, camouflaged frogfish, blue-ribbon eels and nudibranchs.
The Top 10 dive sites in Puerto Galera are best described here.

We’re making Discover Scuba Dive more fun by making it more affordable!
Only P2,500.00 | $55 USD – we seriously think that’s the cheapest in Puerto Galera and no one else can beat that price.
Discover Scuba Dive is for those who hasn’t tried scuba diving before. The intro course consists of skills training (shallow open water) and an open water dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters. Pawikans or sea turtles are also plenty in season, so if you’re lucky, we’ll spot not 1, not 2… definitely more in just 1 dive!
