Asia Divers in Puerto Galera: I've been going there for many years and will be back again next week. The area is a marine preserve and the diving just keeps getting better. Excellent facilities and super-convenient diving; I consider it a land-based liveaboard. Don't miss Verde Island. Ideal place to do courses as well.
