One of the best at Coron!

This is definitely one of the highlights at Coron. A must visit for snorklers like me. You can see actual wrecks and some fishes.

This could be a very nice swimming spot but it's so crowded by all the tourists boats that can be hardly seen via snorkeling..take care to your head when swimming up back from the wreck, as you could hit the tourists boats..

Did 5 dives on 4 seperate wrecks with Rocksteady. Cool dives, the wrecks are very bare from salvaging, but absolutely covered in large and vibrant corals and accompanying sea life. Worth the trip ☺

Around Coron there are several Japanese wrecks that are accessible via recreational scuba diving. We went to four of them and you just need to have seen and done this!

If you are a diver, this is the reason to go to Coron. You can dive a different wreck every dive and if you are comfortable in enclosed spaces, you can certainly dive each wreck multiple times to enter through a different spot.

For snorkelers-this is a must! You get to see an actual ship wreck and explore the amazing fishes and corals that reside on it now so easily! There are amazing things to see all along the length of the wreck-we had great visibility and it was an absolute treat!
