The resort is filling fast so if you’re looking for a place to enjoy your Christmas and New Year and not have to be the one to do all that cooking and cleaning, come and enjoy it with us. We will have a delicious Christmas dinner with lots to choose from, our chocolate fountain and lots of other special goodies. We kick it off with the kid’s party on the 24th when Santa and his helper will come and hand out gifts and then feed around 300 kids. Christmas dinner starts from 6:30pm onwards. Email email@example.com if you would like to make a reservation.

Well it’s that time of year again… the water is cooling down and the extra layers of neoprene are coming out of the cupboard. But not all is bad, as the water cools down the dives heat up in a big way, with two amazing Thresher Shark sightings and a Giant Manta Ray in the Canyons! Check out the link to a great video made by our own Andy Xie: https://www.facebook.com/asia.divers/
Did you know that sea turtles don’t have sex chromosomes? Instead, sex is determined by temperature at which eggs incubate. In the case of green turtles, at 28oC, hatchlings develop into males; at 31oC the hatchlings grow into females. This has great implication in conservation.

You can become a SeaLifeBase collaborator. WHAT is a “SeaLifeBase collaborator,” and WHO can be one? In a nutshell, SeaLifeBase collaborators are the people who help us by: a) sending or alerting us to references and photos, which we have not yet used; b) assembling data from published sources using a preformatted template; and/or c) verifying or correcting data that we have extracted and incorporated into the information system. Some of them are — but not limited to — biologists, taxonomists, scientists, and other experts. Some are aquarists, photographers, businessmen, and marine-life enthusiasts. Truly, we welcome contributions from anybody who has a passion for marine life.
Puerto Galera’s signature wreck, the Alma Jane keeps divers happily entertained. Although she has begun to collapse a bit from years of weather, she is still a most lovely dive. The huge school of resident batfish, a couple resident frogfishes, many lionfish and trumpet fish
