We are a professional dive shop that prioritizes personal service and individual attention. You will never find yourself on a boat crammed with divers. We enjoy taking smaller groups so that everyone can really enjoy the dive.

We are situated in peaceful and picturesque Puerto Galera Bay and connected to the Badladz Adventure Resort with stunning views from the restaurant and rooms. Simply walk down the steps and on to the dive boat!

All dive spots are close by with the farthest being 20 mins away. There are many different types of diving available in Puerto Galera, for people of all skill levels.

From giant clams to magnificently colored fish, from ancient Spanish Galleons to Chinese Warships from thousands of years ago, from shallow reef diving to deep, dark diving into the depths – there is everything you need for a wonderful diving holiday in Puerto Galera. Go macro diving to spot the beautiful marine life, large and small, that lives in the tropical reefs.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to take beautiful pictures of both the magnificent big creatures, and little hidden and small creatures you wouldn’t find on your own anywhere else. From flamboyant colorfish, to majestic sea horses and frog fishes, ancient turtles, intimidating sharks and even the fabled mimic octopus – you can find them all here!

Take your camera with you to capture this amazing wildlife on camera, or have one of our photographers do it for you.

The Badladz Dive Resort also offers a friendly laid back atmosphere where you can relax after a day of world class diving and enjoy our highly rated restaurant, have a drink with your diving partners and enjoy the view of the harbor.

We recently did a diacover scuba diving with Tano at Badladz dive resort and it was an awesome first diving experience! It was much less intimidating than I thought it would be, the process was pretty simple. We did a training with some flip cards and demonstration. Then we got our gear and went out to the dive spot.

Yeah, we started BADLADZ years ago as an Adventure & Exploration team. We were one of the first ones in Puerto Galera & things were pretty wild then. It took a tough bunch of Lads to find all the Kool spots and make sure it was safe for tourism. Nowadays...It's a walk in the park ;-) Glad you enjoyed the... More

I did a Discovery Dive with Badladz and it was an excellent experience. The pre-dive training was comprehensive enough to make you aware of the basics but simple enough that I didn't have much trouble remembering it when diving.
