Yup….we love it! Great weather here now and only a bit of rain at night. Come on down!
One of the nice things about being here in the off-season is getting the dive guide and dive site all to yourself! Clarice and Jeff Napier have been enjoying this type of diving all week…
It’s been wonderful to have Peter Zheng from China back at with us again with another group of excited students and divers. With the sun shining, calm seas and warm water it made their time here very enjoyable while learning to dive. Most did their OW and AOW along with getting in some fun-dives in between. Allison was guiding the way for the group of 7 students and several fun-divers and keeping the team logistics running smooth. Congratulations to all the new divers!
We all celebrated 13 year old Yue Puhang’s birthday with a superb feast prepared by Chef Antoine, balloons to decorate the table, and a wickedly cool cake. Yue Puhang came here as part of Peter Zhengs group and completed his OW and AOW courses with flying colours.
Hanno Jansen has been a regular at Asia Divers and El Galleon for many years. He has quite often had a camera in his hand over the years but now with a great camera set-up and good control using his wing he is really getting some nice photos.
This month’s cover photo is by Sue Goodman. Sue has been reunited with her camera twin and has been back in the saddle again taking some lovely photos. This photo was taken on a nice relaxing dive in Manila Channel. Our weekly newsletter, the “Monday News” is a great way to keep up to date with all that is going on around here.

Andy has been keeping himself very busy this past month with many students from China. Above Huang Yang and Wang Bo are doing the PADI OW course. If you need a very professional Chinese speaking instructor to teach your diving course here at Asia Divers please contact us at email@example.com Andy had the pleasure of having his aunt and brother-in-law here for a visit and he took them out on a “Discover Scuba”.
Shi Ke Yu, 16 years old and her father Shi Sheng Li did their dive training together with Andy.
Looking good in their scuba kit are Renaud & Ilan Gabay. Dad and Lad started off with the PADI Advanced Open Water, and then moved on to Deep Specialty combined with a Nitrox course. That kept them busy for a few days. Well done guys!
Father and son, Arne and Storm Strauss decided to learn to dive and do the PADI Open Water diver course together and what a great location to do it in. Congratulations!!
Congratulations to Peter Zheng’s group of eight from China for completing their PADI OW and AOW courses here. We’re looking forward to having Peter back with us again in July with even more folks!
PADI Dive Master Anne Astorga and Sami Lindroos have been enjoying some much needed fun dives. Anne works on the Live-aboard Discovery Palawan which Tommy has just been on and Sami works for a travel agent in Finland. They were both especially happy with all the great diving in Puerto Galera and very excited when they did a muck dive to the boat yard and found a Hairy frog Fish.
With the sun shining and the water temperature at a very comfortable 29c- 30c it’s been another fantastic week at Asia Divers & El Galleon Beach Resort. We have several divers, students and group of eight students from China keeping up the excitement around the dive shop.
Allison was guiding the way for Peter Zheng a PADI Instructor from China who brought in a group of 8 to complete the Open Water and Advanced open water course. As you can see from the photo it was a fun time with a few highs and a few lows. Congratulations to all the new divers.
Asia Divers is thrilled to have received an award from PADI for “Recognition of Outstanding Contribution to the Dive Industry.” It was presented to Tommy from Jimmy Christrup, PADI Regional Manager, Philippines.
