Atlantis Dive Resort, Puerto Galera

We loved Atlantis Dive Resort in Puerto Galera. No current, 5-10 minute boat rides, and spectacular reef life. Defiantly worth the long flight from the U.S., the van ride, and the boat ride, and finally the short walk to the resort.

The town itself was bustling, but not much to write home about, and there is no white sandy beach to lay on and soak up the rays... but when you can dive 5 times a day - who cares?!? If you must have a lounge chair, then there is a lovely pool to hang out by in between dives.

The resort is unique and built into the hillside. The dive equipment room was at the bottom of the hill and the setup was great so there was minimal fuss about organizing dive equipment.

The basic rooms were tiny. My 6' husband's feet dangled off the edge of the standard bed so we upgraded to the honeymoon suite. Which was far more expensive than we budgeted for, but there was no way that two large people were going to sleep comfortably in the standard room. We really enjoyed the spacious suite and our private patio at the very top of the hill.

At the end of the day we hung out at the bar and swapped fish stories.

Puerto Galera is a macro life lover's dream! The reef was crawling with nudibranchs. Sea horses were also spotted several times. The giant clams were... meh... fun to take a snapshot with my buddy (even if the water was mucky), but that was the site where we also saw giant lionfish, the mimic octopus, and the flamboyant cuttlefish. Every dive, from reef to the clam reserve was a true treasure hunt.
