The wreck diving was the main purpose of my recent dive trip to Coron. The wrecks are all fairly easily accessible without the need for tech diving gear, and it's actually possible to go inside most of them. Unfortunately I visited during a tropical storm, so missed the first couple of days of diving and once we actually got to... More

Thought it was amazing to be able to snorkel around an actual sunken Japanese WW2 wreck. You can practically swim over the entire boat from the anchor to the bow...and it's teeming with a pretty good collection of marine life---we even saw a snake! Lots of "nemo" and "dory" fish too..on top of the standard schools of sergeant majors.

This was part of our tour - really cool! Snorkled our way from the corals to the sunken ship. Definitely a must see.

We visited this place as part of an organised boat trip. I am not a very experienced snorkeler, but even I was able to get a good view of the wrecks by peering down from the surface. It was rather crowded though, so not all that much time over target.

One of the main reasons I came to Coron was to dive the wrecks- and I was not disappointed! They were very cool! As a dive instructor with many dives around the world I've been lucky to see some awesome things underwater and these wrecks are now among them! They are big, with ample opportunities to penetrate, and there is... More

It's amazing descending through the clear waters and actually being able to touch and swing through a shipwreck. The wreck also has a variety of corals and marine life.

Allows any diver or snorkeler to experience the crystal clear waters around the shallow wrecks nice corals and some fish but like most of the Philippines slowly being destroyed by population expansio .

We did the reefs and wrecks tour which included a visit to the Sangat and Lusong gunboats. It was really interesting seeing the boats and think about the history of how they got to their final resting spot.

The wrecks in Coron are all better than the next. The first time you witness the massiveness of the boat lying on the sea bottom is such an exhilarating moment ! An awesome window to the past.

This is one of the amazing place in Coron. You get to see a lot of fishes on the area specially when you bring some food to feed them. Don't forget to bring your GoPro to capture your under water adventure.
