Nice little area to snorkle and dive. Cool to see fishes and watch advance divers reach the ship. The visitor's boats could get a little crowded.

We went for diving with the Reggea Dive center and had a lot of fun at these wrecks. The best part is that you actually can enter the wrecks. Highly recommend!

Heard about the sunken ship tour totally amazed that it was just a few meters above anove water. You could easily play with it's marine park. 😍

This was a first time exploring ship wrecks and it is just amazing. Ships are huge and quite easy to explore (but always with dive instructor), with depth from 20 to 40 meters.

Didn't even know that Coron is a wreck-diving capital of the world until I got there. The wrecks are simply spectacular - large, not too deep, covered in marine life (best places to see the marine life) and you can swim right through most of...More

I’m not a very experienced diver but I go once a year. I was a lil nervous to do these wrecks, but once I got in the water my fear subsided and history came alive. The wrecks are fascinating and almost bring back that sense...More

We visited 2 of the wrecks whilst staying at Sangat dive resort, which is very closed to them. Even just snorkelling they are very interested and heaving with tropical fish. Sadly they can be rather “overrun” with tourists

One of a kind location to view the sunken japanese ship that happened during world war II. Able to see via snorkelling, for better views, diving is highly suggested. Otherwise, enjoy the swim and appreciate the amazing view.

There are multiples sunken boats in Coron but most of them can only be seen while driving. If you are snorkelling only and want to see one, go to the skeleton reef.

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... More
