betadine or any antiseptic for wounds,
*take bonamine before riding the boat as it can really get rough on the seas especially if the waves are big Food & beverage are very expensive at White Beach, PG. I recommend that you buy your own mineral/distilled water (4L or 6L) at the nearest grocery or convenient store before heading to PG.
Scuba-diving in PG
There are many wonderful dive sites accessible from the Sabang beach of Puerto Galera.
We went to the follow dive sites for our:
- M/V Alma Jane ( depth 30 meters)
- Hole in the wall ( depth 12 meters)
- Canyons ( depth 30 meters)
- LaLaguna Point (depth 3 to 18 meters)
- Sabang Wrecks (depth 18 meters)
- Shark Caves (depth 25 to 30 meters)
- Sinandigan Wall (depth 10 to 30 meters)
- Verde Island (depth 5 to 60 meters)
My group was assigned to a dive leader called Jef. Jef was really professional and helpful. I am an open-water diver and the dive trip to PG was my first fly-dive after only 1 overseas dive trip in Pulau Tioman, Malaysia 6 years ago and 2 half day dive in Pulau Hantu, Singapore.
Jef was very patient with me and was always keeping a lookout of me to make sure I am doing well and comfortable during my dives. He was also very familiar with the dive sites around PG and was able to find the resident underwater creatures with ease. As I tend to consume air faster than the other divers in my group, Jef would signal to the other dive masters or instructor in my group that he has to ascend with me first while they can continue with the dives for a while more before ascending. He also signals at least twice to make sure they understand what he meant.

Close to White Beach is a reptile farm, with all manner of snakes and a few crocs.
The owner is German and they have lots of information in English. You'll need to take a scooter to get here though.
