Nick and I just received our new Advanced Open Water and Wreck Diver certification cards and it reminded me that we never told you about our amazing wreck diving experience in Coron!
After our disappointment with the Whale Sharks, Nick and I were really looking forward to seeing some cool stuff during our dive time. After another two flights, we were in Coron and ready to start our diving with Rock Steady Dive Center.
During WWII, a fleet of Japanese ships were sunk in Coron Bay, so now there are about 11 wrecks that you can explore. It’s been Nick’s dream since we started scuba diving to see some wrecks, so we knew we needed to hit these up. We decided that while we were here, we might as well get wreck dive certified, because…why not?
Diving in the wrecks was amazing! I feel like I use this word A LOT when talking about diving, but it just fits. When inside the ships I can’t get over how amazing it is that nature has taken this foreign object and made it it’s own. We saw coral growing on the ships, huge fish swimming in and out, and basically a what looked like a whole underwater city. Nature at it’s finest I think! And to imagine that this is all part of God’s work! And then to think that this is just one of the wonders that the world holds for us!
Unfortunately our camera is only rated up to about 15 meters, so we couldn’t take pictures of most of the wrecks we saw, so just use your imagination!
