Puerto Galera with my Enriched Air Diver student :D
Puerto Galera (PG) is easy to get to from Hong Kong (HK).
We flew directly from Hong Kong to Manila and got a boat transfer to PG from Batangas.
It would have been great if we left early on Friday but we took the last flight from HK and had to stay over night in Batangas.
We felt that public transport was a bit over crowded so we got private transfers on our return.
I strongly suggest to take private transfer if you have a higher budget especially if you are carrying a lot of dive equipment.
The total travelling time from Manila Airport to / from PG was roughly 3.5 hrs - 4.5 hrs.
Arriving at PG, we got really lucky with the weather during our stay.
Three days of sunshine and good visibility!
My student improved a lot on her buoyancy during this trip and was able to get close to these little marine animals~
