When we're told we're heading there to see the sunken ship. I felt a bit afraid when told that it's approx. 40 meters deep, but upon docking, you can already view the ship's wreck because the water is so clear, when our boatmen, threw some bread & leftover rice to the sea, it's amazing to see a variety of fish with their array of lovely colors, all shapes & sizes coming forth to us! It was a feast to see them having a picnic afloat! Seein the ship wreck itself was also an experience, I'll never forget. I vividly captured it's image in my mind. This is also a must-see destination, you'll be happy to share stories with.

We did snorkeling on the Japanese wreck and it was pretty deep. I can't go really near the Wreck due to the depth but you can clearly see it. The water is clear and there are a lot of fishes. You can even see the Main Gun on the boat. I think one should have scuba gear to truly appreciate and explore the Wreck. I'm sure there would be a lot of interesting finds inside the boat and different fishes. I kinda wonder what battle took place here and why the Japanese boat sank during World War 2.

This was certainly one of the highlights of our stay. We snorkeled at one of the shallow wrecks, you can see the whole frame from the surface on a clear day with lots of fishes. Then we went diving at Tangat and Luson with the crew from Seadive Resort. This included a dive at the Coral Garden - spectacular, excellent service from Sea Dive. Will definetly go there again, if possible.
