Lat 13° 30' 0N Long 120° 57' 15E  Peninsula on the northeast corner of Mindoro Island. Also known as , Port Galera or Puerto Calero.

Popular tourist destination. There are several shipwrecks in the area including Dry Dock 21-28m, Alma Jane Wreck (20-30m), St. Christoper Wreck (20-24m), Sabang Wreck (5-20m), Monkey Wreck (40-45m). Unsure which, if any of these wrecks are wartime related.

Reported as a "Japanese Wreck" in dive charts, resting in 42m of water listed as a dive site midway off the eastern shore of the peninsula. This was a wooden patrol boat from WW2. Little remains now except the large engine, shaft and propellor. Thanks to Rick Kirkham, Frontier Scuba for additional information.
