This place is good for Snorkeling . If your a good swimmer you'll enjoy this place. Just make sure you bring your own snorkeling gear, because usually in the tour its not free...

After watching cartoons/non-cartoon that involve sunken ship- its best to bring the kids here to see their expressions of "awesome". They appreciate it because its the real thing. It would have been a better experience if there was history involve in this attraction.

This wreck was not easy to see. It took a while to figure out what was the ship wreck as it is quite deep for snorkelers. So I soon lost interest in the wreck and went off nearby to snorkel. The coral was very pretty and there were a lot of fish.

Not much left of the sunken ship to see at this site. Just skeleton residue. There is a nice nipa hut with tables for lunch.

When we visited Coron/Busuanga, our intent was to experience the many snorkeling opportunities (reefs, marine life & wrecks) that were available on day trips leaving Coron port. This place was one the sites visited/experienced during one of our private day trips. We arrived at this site during mid-morning and there were a few other boats (and tourists "bobbing around aimlessly"... More

This was the last snorkeling site we went to on our island hopping tour so it was a bit crowded but it hardly diminished from the overall experience. As you dive into the water you immediately notice the number of fish in area who are not afraid of human contact. As you approach the buoy of the wreck and look... More

Snorkeling is nice in that little area and you will be able to see the Skeleton, although you have to really focus on that.

Snorkeling to see the reef is not as good as scuba diving. There are lots of corals but u will barely see the wreckage that make up the skeleton reef if youre only snorkeling.

The attraction is the shipwreck but the friendly fishes steal the show. They swarm to you as if to say hi. Snorkeling is a joy here!
