It was a plave where you will be amazed on how you cam easily see the neauty of something underneath the waters. The school of fish and the art of the sunken ship wreck. If you are a good swimmer then this is one of the place that you should check out because its nice and awesome!

Great dives. A lot to see and do on these wrecks, from penetration to just looking around. Tell your DM your limits as they like to push things a little!

It is one of the best places for wrecks diving! Huge ships - where you can go inside and dive for as much as 30 minutes, exploring the insides of Japanesse ships from WWII

its perfect for divers who are adventurous. seeing it from above using goggles it looks so creepy because its massive and some parts are actually dark as its submerged to the deeper part of the sea (i have this fear of big things underwater)

I've snorkeled in many places but never to a wreck so this was a new experience. We went to three different wrecks over two days of boat tours off Coron. The best ones were on the "Wrecks and Reefs Tour". There the Japanese gunboat called the "Lusong Wreck", was just below the surface so you could see it well. Several... More

The warm blue waters of Sangat Island are an aquatic feast for the eyes and senses. Ghostly WW 2 wrecks, intense deep blue drop offs, fields of colorful coral and a myriad of tropical fish bombard your senses with loads of water oriented fun. I toured Sangat Island with a diving outfit called Coron Divers they were top notch. We... More

I totally love it! Though the remains are almost unnoticeable, but swimming with the Zebra fishes are way enticing. I experienced deep diving with the rope.
