30 minutes by banca. Max. depth 35m. This Japanese freighter measures about 152m long and lies almost upright. The main structures remain intact. It carries in one of its holds a car and truck. This wreck provides shelter to batfishes and substrate for the ubiquitous bivalves. Fusiliers, trevallies, barracudas and rays are occasionally seen.
3 hours by banca. Depth >50m. Very dramatic drop-offs down to about 400m. The steep walls are well covered with corals, sponges, tunicates, nudibranchs and slugs. The coral formation at the plateau is magnificent. Green and hawksbill turtles, and a multitude of fish including damselfish, butterflyfish, batfish, surgeonfish, snappers, fusiliers and trevallies are common.
Off Coron Island . Depth > 40m. This freshwater lake is surrounded by limestone cliffs and served by a hot spring. The water temperature ranges from 27-40 0C. The transition between the layers of cold water and hot water is abrupt. The interface is sometimes visible. There are numerous shells on the bottom, shrimps on the walls and some rabbitfish in the shallow area. The above-water environment is equally fascinating.
