best dive sites

it was a little crowded with all the dive boats, but the wrecks were really fun to dive, and you don't need a wreck cert.

Best visited if you know how to skin dive, but also pretty cool for snorkelling enthusiasts. The Lusong Gunboat Wreck near Lusong Island can be viewed pretty close to the surface, while, the wreck by Sangat Island, though quite deep, is surrounded by coral gardens.

We had wrecks diving and there nothing really nice. Visibility is very low, so can't see whole sheep, and can't understand what part are you looking now. By fact, you just see peace of metal covered by mad. Inside of wrecks even worth.

Both Japanese wrecks are superb dive sites. AKITSUSHIMA, 115m long and rests at 35m depth. Recommended certification level: Advanced Open Water with experience, Wreck Diver Recommended EAN-Nitrox Mix: 28%-32% One of the most famous wreck of Coron Bay is the seaplane-tender Akitsushima, because she is the one and only discovered navy-ship of this fleet (until now), which makes her special...

I had a chance to see two sunken wrecks in my three day tour at Coron. I did not need to go scuba diving. The first was at Skeleton wreck, where we saw a sunken Chinese ship. I didn't enjoy this much because there were so many swimmers and divers at the time we reached the place. We were literally... More

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..

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

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 ☺
