Get ready for a fascinating natural and historical underwater adventure with the!
The waters of Coron and the Calamianes is home to a number of World War II Japanese ships that were gunned down by a sustained US airstrike. These historic wrecks, along with the rich and thriving coral gardens and marine life, make Coron a dream dive and snorkeling site.
This tour features two of these historic wrecks – Lusong Shipwreck and Sangat Gunboat, as well as the colorful Coral Gardens near Lusong Shipwreck.
Aside from the well-preserved nature of these wrecks, underwater creatures (such as fish, turtles, and Skeleton shrimps) have also claimed these wrecks as their home so you are in for an interesting snorkeling or diving experience. The tour also features a relaxing picnic lunch by the beach at Calumbuyan Island.
The WW II wreck (in September 1944) is one of the two wrecks in Coron that has its coral encrusted bow just one meter under water so makes it perfect for snorkeling. A little further away there is also a beautiful coral garden that is often inhabited by cruising hawksbill sea turtles. Later in the afternoon we will head to one of the most pristine isolated islands in the archipelago of Busuanga Western Coasts.
