Coron offers a lot of shipwrecks for diving. Well worth a visit if you are an avid diver. Did some diving with Neptune divers. The water was crystal clear. I will definitely visit this again.

You see only outlines of fairly small ships that sank. Ok if part of a larger tour. We were part of the Coron Island Tour which was great. Especially the lagoon

There are many japanese ship wrecks near Coron. They are available for OWD and AOWD certifications. Three of them you can see when snorkeling - their tops are only 0m-5m.

If you like wreck diving then look no further than Coron. Many different wrecks of all shapes and sizes and at various depths, from beginner to advanced diving level. My only regret is that I didn't have long enough there to get any more dives...More

Good place to snorkel. There is a wreck with coral garden on it. After this place our driver took to another place. I will be honest and tell that second one was better than wrecks.

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
