“Japanese Wreck in snorkel deep water!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We vivited this attraction as part of our Island Hopping Tour. As Im not a diver it was great to be able to access one of the Japanese Wrecks by snorkelling. Bring some bread or skyflakes for the fish as the snorkelling was amazing. The place does get crowded with many boats, divers and snorkellers.

“One of best diving experiences so far”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Me and my wife have done 2 wreck dives in Coron, and i can say these were one of the best dives we ever had. Even compared to SS Thistelgorm in Egypt.

“one of the best of its kind”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Lots of historical ship wrecks to choose from depending on your level of experience. You don't need to be a diver or a good swimmer to see some of it. "Lusong Gunboat" is great for non-divers, wreck is great for snorkeling, it's nicely covered with hard corals and offers a nice variety of fish life. It was my first time to see a shipwreck and it feels creepy but I enjoyed it, in fact that experience makes me decide to learn scuba diving. One of the best that coron can offer.

“Rock the Wrecks of Coron!!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Phenominal wreck diving!!! Words and pictures cannot describe this experience!!! I have dove a few wrecks in the past several years, but such a large concentration of historical wrecks is just fantastic. Dive with rocksteadydivecenter.com and expect well catered dives.

“Some of the best wrecks in the world!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I am an experience diver, and usually I hate bad visibiliy. But I didn't mind it in Coron Wrecks. The wrecks are so great. They are huge and you can just spend most of your dive inside. Going is corridors, rooms, finding stuff like if it sunk yesterday. Don't expect much life, but expect an incredible atmosphere. I was under the charm of each one of the six best wrecks. There are 3 tip of day dive : beginners, medium and hard. Each time with 2 wrecks dive and an optionnal third dive on Barracuda lakes or on a reef with a smaller wreck. I did them all and it always been a great day.
