Sea Rider Diver Center Puerto Galera, "The Back Packer's Choice" has been diving and operating at Sabang Beach, Puerto Galera, Philippines for 10 years. Our dive and course rates are guaranteed to be the most affordable (cheapest!) in the area. PADI, SSI and BSAC dive courses are offered. We dive at least one hour (air permitted) and have the best macro spotter. All guides are very familiar with the dive sites and love to spot macro critters for underwater photographers. We discovered the Macro Haven dive site and is exclusive to Sea Rider divers. We don't mix fun divers and U/W photographers. Dive master/guide to diver ratio is always kept at 1:4 to ensure safe diving.

Hi, I just dived with them on holiday last year so you'll need to check priicng with them directly. I know it was amongst the very cheapest on Sabang though. Enjoy!
