Skip this part of the tour if you're not going to dive because this part is full of tourists all looking for the wreck in murky waters and all you could see is the top of the ship.

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

Very interesting scenery under the water. To see ship wrecks was an amazing experience. The wreck is close so a could touch it. I did just snorkeling and it was cool.

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!

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
