Lusong Gunboat Wreck

Coron, Palawan

The Lusong Gunboat Wreck is a popular Snorkeling and Scuba Diving site in Coron Bay. It is a shallow spot with the shipwreck being between 5m and 15m deep. The boat is about 25m long. This shallow wreck dive is ideal for beginners. In addition, the reef life is fantastic with plenty of small fishes all around the Lusong Gunboat. It is usually done as the second relaxing dive of the day.


/> This spot is great for macro underwater photography as there is plenty of things to see and you will a long bottom time. The hard and soft coral is great on the nearby reef perfect to finish your dive in shallow water. It takes only 5 min to reach the place from the Coron Resorts. This location is a Reef. Most people are here for Wreck Diving.

    Second dive compilation I've made. Shot a month after getting my scuba license. Less shaky than the first, although still could use a lot of improvement. Added a Red Filter to the GoPro so that the colors would return to their more natural colors at lower depths.

    Such a fun, otherworldly dive!

    Things To Do In Coron Palawan

    Coron, Palawan is a haven for underwater adventurers. From snorkeling, island hopping, and wreck diving, it has been one of the top destinations here in the Philippines that I wanted to take Tom to. After spending almost a week there, I realized there is so much more to this town than just exploring the underwater world. Although I had a rough idea on what we wanted to do, as we got to the place, we were faced with the question that most travelers ask themselves when they get to a new destination.
