It was a very successful staging of the Miss Scuba Philippines 2017 Swimsuit Competition held at the poolside of La Laguna Villas in Puerto Galera. All the fifteen candidates vied for the attention of the judges – most of whom are members of the PGDDRA or Puerto Galera Dive Shop and Dive Resort Association aside from the Puerto Galera Mayor and Vice-Mayor. Special sponsor awards were also handed out prior to the announcement of the Top 3 in swimsuit (by Swimwear Store): Helga Cerbo, Lorin Talosig and Sherlyn Doloriel.
Athena Catriz hosted the proceedings, while National Director Cindy Madumma made sure that everything went well.
