ABOUT SABANG BAY

Edit

Located in the most northwest municipality in the province known as the Oriental Mindoro, Philippines, Puerto Galera offers divers a rich area to search and find sea life and natural marvels. Puerto Galera itself is located on the southwest end of the Isla Verde Passage which is about 100km south of Manila.
Puerto Galera is actually one of the oldest Spanish settlements in the Philippines as having been founded in 1572. Its history helps make Puerto Galera one of the most interesting places in the Philippines to visit, but it is the diving along Sabang Bay that has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years.

As one of the premier diving destinations in the Philippines, Puerto Galera offers about thirty different dive sites all within about 10 minutes from Sabang Beach in the bay area. For those who want to experience some of the most interesting diving conditions, then exploring the Sabang Bay area is the place to be.

Sabang Bay has developed a reputation for having a wide diversity of marine life. The number of different species of fish is truly enormous, but what help make this part of the world unique are the many different wrecks that are in the area.
Over the years there have been many vessels sunk in the area of Sabang Bay, including a World War II Japanese patrol boat. The wrecks date from different times and their conditions vary with the age and material that they were made from. However, it is the incredible sea life that includes a vast amount of flora and fauna that make Sabang Bay one of the most desirable places to dive.

The overall diving conditions along Sabang Bay in the various recommended locations are safe enough for new divers to explore. The clear waters combined with the relatively low diving depth make this an ideal place for those getting familiar with diving. The currents as well are tolerable. The visibility conditions do vary depending on the time of day.
