Freediving Puerto Galera


Class 1 Philippine Freediving Destination

Freediving around Puerto Galera has been a recreation and sport for more than a decade with more than 350 metre depths being possible in the Verde Island Passage that fronts Puerto Galera’s North shore. It is not widely promoted mainly because scuba diving is the predominant underwater sport here, but World record attempts have been made in the Verde Island Passage, hosted by a couple of the established dive shops.

Freediving to almost any achievable depth is possible off Puerto Galera, for the Verde Island Passage descends to 450 metres within one mile from shore.

Freediving Locations Around Puerto Galera

The best freediving location around Puerto Galera will be found off the northern edge of the peninsula beach area - from Big Lalaguna Beach to Sabang Beach. Freediving here is recommended at slack tide because at peak tide the tidal flows can be swift and there are many areas of disturbance.

Freediving is also possible towards the western reaches of Puerto Galera but this area is not so popular because there is little sheltered water, tidal flows are more apparent and there is a significant amount of recreational water traffic at the surface.
