It has the biggest marine life concentration in the world with approximately 1,700 marine species and three exemplary dive spots - the Washing Machine, the Drop-off and the Black Fish Pinnacle.

Puerto Galera is also one of the best scuba diving spots in Asia. The diversity of hard and soft corals, along with hundreds of species of tropical fish life makes Puerto Galera one of the most popular dive destinations in the Philippines.
