This small wreck is great to explore, but as it is so shallow, this is where snorkels come... So you end up floating between a lot of other people. Still worth it though.

The wreck is 5 meters down but if you have a good resistance you are able to touch it. There's a cord that helps to pull down

One of the places you want to do snorkeling so many zebra fishes and you can see a shipwreck. I really enjoyed feeding the fishes and it won't swim away from you unlike to other snorkeling areas in the country if you are just swimming. They will just will along with you. If you enjoy swimming with fishes this is... More

This place is good for Snorkeling . If your a good swimmer you'll enjoy this place. Just make sure you bring your own snorkeling gear, because usually in the tour its not free...

After watching cartoons/non-cartoon that involve sunken ship- its best to bring the kids here to see their expressions of "awesome". They appreciate it because its the real thing. It would have been a better experience if there was history involve in this attraction.

This wreck was not easy to see. It took a while to figure out what was the ship wreck as it is quite deep for snorkelers. So I soon lost interest in the wreck and went off nearby to snorkel. The coral was very pretty and there were a lot of fish.

Not much left of the sunken ship to see at this site. Just skeleton residue. There is a nice nipa hut with tables for lunch.

When we visited Coron/Busuanga, our intent was to experience the many snorkeling opportunities (reefs, marine life & wrecks) that were available on day trips leaving Coron port. This place was one the sites visited/experienced during one of our private day trips. We arrived at this site during mid-morning and there were a few other boats (and tourists "bobbing around aimlessly"... More
