You will be picked up at your accommodation in Coron town proper and driven to the port. There, you will board a boat that will bring you to Coron’s popular snorkeling spots, starting with the Calumbuyan Island. This piece of paradise sits between the islands of Busuanga and Culion and is known for its colorful coral reefs packed with starfish and giant clams.
Upon arriving on the island, paddle a short distance from the beach until the water level reaches your waist or chest. You will then don your mask and snorkel to see the teeming marine life in the area. If you are new to snorkeling, there is no need to worry as the water is shallow and your guide will assist you. There is a life vest you can use as well.
Just a few meters away from Calumbuyan Island is Pass Island, where you can go beachcombing and relaxing. The shoreline here is known to be shallow, so kids can easily enjoy the beach activities without hassle. Take some pictures, soak in the sun, and prepare yourself for what you will see in your next destination, Lusong Gunboat Shipwreck.
Here, you will get the chance to see one of the 12 Japanese ships that sunk during a WWII airstrike. Since the shipwreck is on shallow waters, you will get to see its details even by just snorkeling. It is home to tropical fishes and colorful corals, too. You will then head to Lusong Coral Garden to check out the teeming marine life here. Bring your underwater camera to take photos of this surreal view.
From Lusong, you will make your way to East Tangat to explore another wreckage. This submarine hunter boat sunk towards the end of WWII. It is now a popular dive and snorkeling spot among beginners because of its visibility and shallow depth.
