Puerto Galera, Philippines 2009

Puerto Galera, Philippines is on the northwest tip of Island of Mindoro.  Is is a common weekend beach getaway spot for expats and locals of Manila.  A 1 1/2 -2 hour car ride to Batangas and then a 1/2-hour water taxi ride puts you into the heart of Puerto Galera. 

The diving is very good and most sites are a 5-10 minute boat ride.  Verde Island is about a 90 minute boat ride.

Diving is a mix of different styles of reef.  All very healthy with lots of color.  The area is known for its swift currents and drift diving.
