Summary

In September 1944 the US 3rd Fleet under Admiral 'Bull' Halsey was heading north through the Philippines to towards Manila. Reconnaissance planes from Aircraft Carriers in the Fleet discovered a large of Japanese Cargo boats anchored in Coron Bay. Halsey immediately ordered air strikes and Fighter Bombers subsequently destroyed and sunk 15 -18 boats in the shallow waters around Busuanga.

Today these boats, still lying mostly intact, are the homes for extraordinary amounts of marine life and for divers probably the most easily accessible group of historical Wrecks in Asia Pacific. Some of the smaller wrecks, especially the small gunboats East Tangat Wreck and Lusong Wreck are in shallow water and perfect for training dives and introductory wreck dives. The surrounding reefs are also home to fascinating marine life including giant clams. Olympia Maru lies on it's side at a maximum depth of 25m and with the top of the wreck at just 12m depth this makes a good multi-level dive for relative beginners. Visibility can be mixed but generally there is low current and lots of species to see including Batfish, lionfish and scorpion fish.

This package gives you an ideal opportunity to dive these wrecks, as well as enjoy the stunning above-water scenery of the Calamian Islands.
