It has become too touristy to enjoy swimming around it, or doing any snorkeling. If you want to see it though, try doing it early in the morning.

Everyone should try this! We had help from Rocksteady Dive Center and they were amazing! The scenes here were breath-taking, we love how nature claims these ship!

It is really like you dive through a museum, but then a little bit more exciting. Not only inside the wrecks is cool, but on the outside there is so much coral growing which attracks a lot of fish!

Not many places can you find actual war wrecks within recreational diving limits. In Coron, there are eight! The wrecks are great and have more fish life than many of the reefs. If you are in Coron, diving the wrecks is a must do.

The wrecks has its own magic and are full of fishes and corrals. The disadvantage is that in main season are really crowded. Simply they are not big enough :)

A very good diving spot with plenty to see to keep you busy. I guess snorkeling would be a tat more boring considering it is more difficult to get up close and personal with the wrecks. Myself i had a great time.

Some of the best diving I have experienced, these wreck are awesome, lots to see both inside and outside of the wrecks. One of the only places you can do wreck penetration without a wreck cert!

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.

Good day, we only did snorkeling and went to one wreck as we took the "do it yourself" approach at the sight. Tours are available just ask at the hotel your staying at. If you want to do Caluit it will take a full day due... More
