History of How Diving Started in Puerto Galera

0

Diving in and around Puerto Galera started back in early 1981 when Brian Homan, an Australian from Maitland NSW, started Capt’n Gregg’s Dive Center on Big Lalaguna Beach in a small space underneath the Hobbit House Bar and Restaurant managed by Ray and Rosita Ramos.

Snake, a fellow Australian, teamed up with Brian around July 1981 and together they started exploring the area, looking for dive sites and wrecks.

The Hobbit House was destroyed by a typhoon on Boxing Day 1981 but luckily, the dive shop being underneath, survived. Most of the hobbits then returned to Manila and Ray and Rosita rebuilt the establishment and called it Rosita’s Inn. The Hobbit House is now a well known music club located in Ermita, Manila where the hobbits are the waiters and they also own and operate the business.

Jennifer Idol, The First Woman to Dive all 50 States

By Jennifer Idol

I flew over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 and was moved to raise awareness for local waters through my underwater photography and diving skills. I determined a journey to document and dive all 50 states would help show how our national underwater world is a treasure we should care for and protect. While working as full-time senior designer for the Texas Association of REALTORS, I dedicated vacation time and weekends to set out on the first steps of my journey in 2011. I became the first woman to dive all 50 states in August 2015.

Epilogue

It took a while for the police, the Coast Guard and everyone else to straighten it all out, but eventually they did.

Glenn Downing got a lot of media attention and press in the next few weeks, but not the kind he was looking for. He was revealed to be a fool and a complete dupe of the company preparing the ship. While he wasn’t criminally responsible, everyone blamed him for being too trusting and naïve. He never worked around the water again.

GOING DOWN WITH THE SHIP, A Winthrow Key Adventure Short Story by Eric Douglas (Segments 1 thru 8)

6

Segment 1

The conch made its way slowly across the sand – journeying from one reef outcropping to the next. The separation was no more than 20 feet, but it had probably taken the poor creature hours to make it the 15 feet it had traveled so far. Tiny marks – footprints, really – in the white sand showed his progress and the determination it had taken.
