Comments This was first time in Philippines and I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly people and great diving.
Atlantis resort was excellent for staff,service, quality of food, clean attractive rooms, always had hot water and had clean sheets every other day. Very professional DiveMasters and guides are at Atlantis Puerta Galera. There were lots of crinoids, lionfish, frogfish, leaf fish, large batfish in schools, nudibranchs, all kinds of angelfish, triggerfish, and more!More Americans should visit the Philippines. Diving is like jumping into an aquarium. The few sites with strong currents were managable with help from the Divemasters.

Only thing that disturbed me was that the Filipinos hit and abuse dogs and cats and treat them as if they were pests; sad to see that.
