The beach is so pristine but make sure to wear a full-on rash guard/wet suit that covers your arms and legs (never mind if you’ll look funny) as there are many jellyfish sightings in the area. My husband got stung when he was just sitting...More
Coron boasts diving as maybe it's best tourist slogan to the world. However, you don't only see reefs and marine life here but also wrecks from the Japanese World War. If I'm not mistaken, 10 or more ships sank near the island of Busuanga/Coron Town...More
Sunken Japanese ships are very exciting to visit and the Coron area (North East of El Nido, Palawan Island) is very famous for these ships. These are huge wrecks with plenty of marine life and corals too, but you should be a certified diver to...More

There are even explore scuba opportunities where certification is not required. You won't be certified when done and you will only be able to see the shallower wrecks but I am sure you will find it awesome.

There are two shallow gunboats that are great for snorkeling. The Lusong gunboat breaks the surface at low tide and has a maximum depth of ten meters. There is not much left of the wreck besides the hull, but the surrounding Corals are some of the nicest in the area. The Teru Kaze Maru aka East Tangat Gunboat, sits on a slant. The bow is at four meters from the surface with the stern resting at twenty meters.
The "big wrecks" sit in deeper water. The average would be 30 meters at the hard bottom, with the main deck levels at 18 meters. It depends on your ability as a free diver.
Most tours last all day. If you are departing from Coron, it will take an hour just to get the the Teru Kaze.
Caluit Island is on the north side of Busuanga Island. Most of the tours to Caluit are by van and leave really early in the morning, 4:00-5:00am. You want to get there early before the sun is high in the sky. The animals tend to hide in the grass from the midday heat.
