Dive Trip to PG, Day 1.
School is out for the winter. W and IZ went to Korea for a week, bestowing upon DJ and me this most unprecedented and welcome freedom. We took the opportunity to go diving in Puerto Galera for an extended weekend.
Puerto Galera is a town on the island of Mindoro, south of Luzon, the island on which Manila is located. The most common way of getting to PG is by a 1-hour ferry ride from Port Batangas to Port Sabang.
One thing that I like about PG is that resorts, restaurants, and stores are easily accessible on foot along the beach – unlike Anilao, where each property is isolated from the rest, no beach to connect.
We’re staying at Scandi Divers.
Another thing that I like about Scandi Divers is that the food is ordered à la carte, so guests can eat whatever they want, whenever they want – unlike Anilao, where the food is typically buffet and inclusive of the room charge or daytrip fee.
And yes, the food itself was good, surprisingly good for a not-so-fancy dive resort.
