Possibly the easiest of all wreck dives if you were to do it. This I think is the shallowest of them all. By snorkeling you can see the tip of Skeleton and if you really want, can even free dive down to see more. If you tire of this, there are corals around the shallows and easily pass your time by checking out the ocean life around you. We also did the wreck dive to skeleton and was able to go around the actual ship where it's not so visible from the top. If you can scuba here, I'd suggest it. Beware of late afternoons since a lot of bankas stop here and the ocean becomes loaded with snorkelers.

The place becomes one of the attraction due to a japanese second worldwar wreck located near one of the islands,if on high tides it is quite deep to used snorkel to reach it,but to see such a ship is a considered a close encounter for a non diver.

This is a stop on most of the boat tours. An old wreck 30 feet down. We were barely able to see it due to poor visability. A dissapointing stop, very few fish. It's a hustle to make the village money. The village is just feet away. Expect to pay for this stop. Tell your boat driver to skip this stop.

There are so many fishes and you are so close to them. Bring bread and rice with you and in no time you will be surrounded with fishes.

Water is clear enough but it can't beat going into the water.
