“sunken dreams”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

well the sunken wreaks i visited were not that great..its more of a tourist trap over-rated..as a great adventure..problem is unless you are the 1st.in line on the tour you wont see much as divers kick up so much silt the visability is poor..taking pics is impossible..there are better sites...but if you go you gain bragging rights..and satify your adventure of seeing some wreaks...

“Good wreck”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Well, the ship wreck is there. You couldn't miss it. Since Im not a diver, our boatman took the pictures for us. He dove under water and took really cool pics of the ship.

“So so”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

The fact that there was a ship underneath where I was snorkeling just freaked me out.

A marker is found in the middle of the sea where small boats park around it. A rope then guides snorkelers and divers to where the ship is. You'd see the tip of the sunken ship, full of molds and weeds. It is like the sunken Titanic as seen on the movie (but a smaller version.) I felt like someone would just grab my leg. :S

However, it was still spectacular and amazing to see a part of history right below me.

“Lusong Wreck!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

if you are not a scuba diver, the most accessible of all the Old Japanese wrecks in Coron is the Lusong Gunboat. It is located in about 4m deep water and a great place to spend a few hours snorkelling. You will see nice coral formations and a lot of interesting fish species. There is also a coral garden just right beside it. Definitely a must see in Coron!
