Blue Ribbon Dive Resort in Puerto Galera is located on the beautiful beach of Small La Laguna Bay, just a couple of minutes walk from the famous Sabang Beach. The bay is far more peaceful than the hustle and bustle of Sabang, but you are still close enough to enjoy the convenience of the town’s bars and restaurants.

Water temperatures are dropping a bit, which means it’s critter season! Come join us for some great diving and critter hunting. Although this time of year is technically winter, air temperatures are still in the high 20s and low 30’s (°C), and water temperature is usually in the high 20’s. Since typhoon Nina hit us on Boxing Day 2016, we have had a spate of rain and ‘cold’ weather, which has brought the ocean temperature down to around 24°C. For us locals, that’s quite cold 😉

Enjoy the video of some of our favourite critters, found on one of Puerto Galera’s most popular dive sites, Sabang Wrecks.

Congratulations to Blue Ribbon’s fearless leader Jon, who just performed a 30m(100ft) freedive to the Alma Jane wreck. The Alma Jane is one of Puerto Galera’s most popular dive sites for advanced scuba divers, but we believe this is the first time anyone has freedived down to the wreck. Well done Jon!

Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is currently the only resort in Puerto Galera offering PADI Freediver courses (intsructed by resort owner/manager Jon). Please visit the Freediving pages for more information if you are interested.
