The bay right in front of Puerto Galera has some great critters to observe. Frog Fish, Sea Horses, many types of Pipe Fish. Also a great place to see Mandarin fish at dusk. Visibility usually good except when heavy traffic occurs from boats in the bay. Sometimes gets crowded so be careful when surfacing.
