Diving in the Philippines is one of the amazing magical experiences the world offers all those willing to leave the office behind for a while. Whether you’re visiting the reefs in Puerto Galera or the shipwrecks in Subic Bay, there is always something of interest to discover and enjoy.
The great thing about the Philippines is that there is always something to do. Most of the time, it’s diving. One of the main reasons (if not THE main reason) people come to Puerto Galera, is that there is world class diving. Scientists declared Verde Island, just 10 minutes from the door of Badladz Adventure Resort, the center of marine biodiversity… in the world. Think of the best place you have ever been snorkeling, and then multiply it by 2… 3… or even 10.
Scuba diving is a great way to spend time with your friends and family. If you come with a group, we can arrange a special diving trip. We’ll visit the best spots in the area and then finish with a picnic on a private beach. Sound good?
Immediately in front of Badladz Adventure Resort are a number of great dive sites. The Giant Clams is a fantastic site for beginners, at an average depth of 9 or 10 meters. Despite the shallow depth, there is lots to see, including marvellous coral that grows from the ocean floor. Under rocks, if you look carefully, you’ll also find reef octopuses that can change color in the blink of an eye.
A short distance from the Giant Clams is another fantastic site… The Manila Channel. This dive site is used for beginners and slightly more advanced. On the right tide, divers can float down the channel at a leisurely pace, with no need to swim. With very little finning needed, the oxygen lasts longer and you get to experience more of the amazing sea life. From countless species of tropical fish that demonstrate the variety of nature to alien-like shapes and lifeforms that hide beneath rocks and under the sand, it is a wonderful place.
But here’s what’s cool. If yon’t like to dive, there are still plenty of fun things to do in the Philippines. Near Badladz, you can race through the mud, play paintball, revel in the infamous nightlife or go hiking. Puerto Galera even has its own golf course!
If you’re interested in a holiday that you won’t forget, book your stay at Badladz today. You’ll have a relaxing getaway that will open your mind to what’s possible once you leave the Western world. See you soon!
