PHILIPPINESAlma JaneThe Alma Jane, once a Philippine cargo vessel, was cleaned and stripped down in 2003 and sunk off the shores of Puerto Galera and Sabang Bay. It now sits at 30m in an upright position and is 30 metres in length. There is plenty to explore around the exterior, but there are parts of the wreck where it is safe to penetrate into the interior.

The Alma Jane is home to large schools of batfish, sweetlips, red and yellow snapper, occasional frogfish and many other smaller fish, sometimes eels and sea snakes. Hawksbill turtles come by for a visit on the wreck too. In the early morning light on a day with exceptional visibility, it’s a perfect place to dive. Alma Jane is also a great place to train, including Nitrox and Deep Dive for your Advanced Open Water Diver course.

The Alma Jane is one of the mostpopular dive sites of Puerto Galera and even if you have been there before, you won’t get tired of the vibrant marine life surrounding it. You can end your dive by swimming to the shallows near Fantasea Reef to maximize your bottom time.
