Puerto Galera is another popular diving destination given its proximity to Manila. A 1.5-hr bus ride from Manila and another 1.5-2 hr ferry trip makes it an ideal weekend getaway from the city.
Puerto Galera is known for its exciting drift dives as current tends to pick-up. It is also known for its macro diving (muck diving). One of the admirable diving practice in the area is the no anchoring culture which aims to preserve and protect the life beneath.
Canyons is one of the popular dive sites in the area where it was listed as one of the 2012 top 50 dive sites in the world by CNN. http://travel.cnn.com/explorations/escape/outdoor-adventures/worlds-50-best-dive-sites-895793/
