“What an awesome experience”

Sunken Japanese Wrecks

Not too deep.  You can stand on part of the ship and take photo.  Be careful because there are sharp edges.  We cut ourselves when we hold the ship and took photos. During low tide, you can actually see the stern of the ship above the surface. It was supposed to be a camouflaged ship during the WWII.  They camouflaged it with mangroves but was noticed and gun down.

It felt eerie at first, like it was a "ghost ship" but eventually, you will learn to admire it especially when you see that it's beautifully covered by a variety of corals, sponges, different types of fish and shells

Very cool diving on the wrecks, beautiful coral on the top of the ships with amazing sea life and turtles and many other fish! Cool to navigate through small holes throughout the ship

Great big wrecks and penetration and dived all of them at least twice. By staying at Sangat you avoid the masses from Coron.

Went here for a private tour from a smaller boat who took us to 4 areas and one of them is here. stayed here for almost an hour before transferring to another area.

what i can say is that the view of the ship wreck while snorkeling was truly amazing. the one that you see in the movies which shows shipwrecks and the rays of light coming fromt the sun scattered by sea water and lighting the corals, fish and the shipwreck, it just made me awe.

will be visiting here again if given the chance. but would like to tour around other areas in the philippines which i haven't been visited yet.

but this was a great place to visit in coron island.

I just did snorkeling at this site. I find the sight of the shipwreck creepy. It was dark and it looked like a ghost would just appear at any minute and would grab my feet and bring me down. But there's one thing nice about this place though. Here you will see lots of different kinds of fishes swimming around the area. When you feed them with bread you will totally get surrounded by them.
