This is a great place to snorkel with friends, family, or special someone. The ship looks really amazing you can imagine how powerful these big ships were during those times. Fishes and corals also can be found near the ship wrecks.

The fact that the boats are wreaks from WWII was the most interesting part. There didn't seem to be a lot of interesting fish around and the coral, sadly looks dead.

A good place to snorkel. Lots of different species to see. You can see the sunken ship better if you dive.

One of the few place where you can dive several WWII wrecks in a short distance. Amazing if you dive through these Japanese war vessels.

Quite a number of various wrecks to dive. Best is a private boat with a group of people and departure early from Coron Port....the earlier the better to get to the first wreck before other vessels arrive and you get the best visibilty at least for the first dive. It gets really busy out on the wrecks, se get out... More

Being adjacent to the Coral Garden, this is another good place to snorkel. I actually find the schools of fish here are not afraid of human contact as they would swim right in front of us! Beware of jellyfish stings though specially if you go there after a rainy day.

We went inside the wrecks with flashlights and it was so eerie I felt like I was in a horror movie (in a good way). Morazan Maru was my favourite of the ones I saw. Just diving down and in-between the huge boilers was a lot of fun. Be careful, though as there are some very narrow little tunnels. Definitely... More

Travelling to Coron/Busuanga, our goal was to experience the many snorkelling opportunities (reefs, marine life & wrecks) that were available on day trips leaving Coron port. We pre-booked using Calamianes Expeditions & Ecotours for our four days of planned adventure and this place was one the sites visited/experienced during one of the private day trips.

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.

I went to Teru Kaze Maru, Morazan Maru & Lusong Gun boat. The visibility is a bit poor and there are huge angel jellyfish swimming around (Bring rush guard or full wet suit). I went inside Lusong gunboat (my first wreck freedive) :) Overall: great experience (I'd like to research more about these boats)
