Map of the Republic of the Philippines showing Manila, Coron, and Cebu

Dive Right-Coron is located 250 km south-southwest of Manila in Coron Town, on Busuanga Island, in the Calamian Island Group, north of Palawan Island, in the Republic of the Philippines. Coron is easily reached by daily morning and afternoon one-hour flights from Manila or by overnight ship from Manila.

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The political and reigious trouble in the extreme Southern Philippines on the islands of Jolo, Tawi Tawi, and Sulu which are next to Malaysia is 700 km away from Coron. It has had no effect on life in a small town like Coron or diving on the eleven Japanese World War Two wrecks. All we know is what we have seen on local news, CNN and BBC.

See 10 wreck pictures and a Coron Bay wreck diving site map below. These wrecks are now artificial reefs teeming with hard and soft coral and marine life. Sunk at anchor, you can dive the deck of our deepest wreck at 36 meters. For serious wreck divers our "interesting" dives are penetrations into the wrecks done at 24 to 43 meters depth. You should read, "Wreck Diving with Dive Right-Coron" to understand how everyone can dive the wrecks of Coron Bay.

Most people and many divers have misconceptions about wreck diving and nitrox diving. Nitrox is NOT used as a gas for deep diving! Nitrox extends your bottom time when you are diving a horizontal dive site like a wreck. If you can't make a multi-level dive nitrox lets you stay at one depth longer than on air.

In cooperation with most local resorts, Dive Right-Coron offers a great variety of complete travel, transfer, lodging, meals and diving packages. We don't own rooms or a resort so we can steer you into the bet lodging for your taste, budget and preference.

 Dive Right - Coron

Dive Right - Coron exists for scuba diving on 11 sunken ships of the Japanese WWII supply fleet. Caught by surprise, these ships were sunk at anchor at depths of 10 to 43 meters. Eight of these ships are in Coron Bay, an hour boat ride from Dive Right - Coron.

Designated as National Historical Sites, the wrecks are surrounded by Japanese owned cultured pearl farms. The security guards at the pearl farms protect the wrecks from Filipino fishermen. The wrecks are alive with soft and hard corals and teeming with marine life.
