Puerto Galera is just a car and boat ride away from Manila, in a beautiful little pocket of Mindoro Province. The white sand beaches and great snorkelling and diving opportunities are an attraction for those looking for a low-budget, fun dive holiday.
Diving here is year-round, with high season from December to May. Visibility is often better in the low season. There are dives suitable for all levels, with competent guides to show you the best underwater sights. The area is mostly reef diving, with all the favourite inhabitants such as turtles, nudibranchs, parrotfish, eagle rays, and many, many colourful tropical fish. Dive sites are almost all within 15 minutes boat ride, which means you have more time to enjoy your holiday.
Non diving activities include kayaking, trekking, golf, sailing, snorkelling and windsurfing.
With its classic Spanish architecture, Portofino has great character and comfort. It is located on a white sandy beach in a coconut grove and consists of air-conditioned self-contained units in four configurations: studio, premium studio, 1 bedroom unit and 2 bedroom unit. The resort has great facilities, with a beachfront waterfall and swimming pool as well as onsite restaurant and bar. You can snorkel at the front of the resort. There are several restaurants nearby as well as the Action Divers dive centre. The close proximity of the dive sites means you can come back to the dive centre between dives, giving flexibility with planning and enjoying the other activities in Puerto Galera. The team of international dive professionals at Action Divers are dedicated to giving the best service, value and memorable diving.
