Philippine weather, for sailing, has two distinct seasons, with a messy mixture of remnants or nothing for a few weeks in between: Northeast monsoon "Amihan" winds, from November to April; and, Southwest monsoon "Habagat" winds, from May to October. Tropical storms and typhoons (hurricanes / cyclones) may affect Philippines weather at any time of year but most frequently from April through to November. Typhoons almost never affect the sailing around Mindanao, because it is too far South, creating excellent cruising opportunities from Samal Island (in the Davao Gulf), East then North to Siargao and the Surigao Strait, along the North coast to Cagayan de Oro, and to Dapitan (Zamboanga Del Norte), with excursions through the southern Visayan region (Bohol through Negros to southern Palawan). Although the weather is almost always favorable, we do not recommend West of the Davao Gulf nor West of Dapitan.
Because the Philippines is so strategically located, between the West Pacific, the West Philippine Sea and the South China Sea (with many shipping lanes and air corridors), Puerto Galera weather forecasts, Philippine weather forecasts and typhoon warnings are available through a myriad of different weather forecast sources.
Puerto Galera weather forecasts and Philippines weather forecasts contain hourly, six hourly, daily and weekly weather forecasts & updates, including satellite imagery, barometric weather charts and weather webcams.
