Coron is my favorite place to dive shipwrecks!!! In addition to all the exciting shipwrecks, the lagoons, volcanic islands, caves, lakes, hot springs and mangroves are just magical! We even saw a whale shark at one of the wrecks.
Toward the end of the Second World War, the American reconnaissance planes took surveillance photos of the Palawan Islands trying to locate the Japanese imperial fleet. They thought originally that the ships were one of the Philippines' 7,100 islands - until they compared surveillance photos taken over a period of time and noticed that the islands were moving! So they sent their bombers and attacked the ships while they were at anchor. This successful attack helped turn the tide of the war for the Allied Forces in the Philippines.
My preferred dive shop is Rocksteady Dive Center in Coron Town.
