Diving @Puerto Galera, Philippines

Spent 8 days from 11-18 February 2012 with a group of diving friends at Puerto Galera, Mindoro, Philippines.  Checked in at Sabang-Inn Beach resort and dove with “Dive with Chot”.  Water was cold at 25-26 degree Celsius, and surface choppy for the first 2 days.  Weather turned better and we did 2 days of diving at Verde Island, much better dive site than at Sabang Bay.
