Coron Shipwrecks and Lusong Coral Garden tour (Private / Shared)

By Philippines Divers
During this experience, you'll witness the famous World War II wreck that sits at the shallow ocean floor. Other than that we will visit Lusong Coral Garden to getup close with an array of dazzling marine life, excellent corals, vibrant colorful fishes and occasional sea turtles. We will visit the Lusong Gunboat : a famous snorkeling and diving site, a shallow area with a shipwreck that lays on an angle on its side. The gunboat is approximately 25m in length, and its stern can be visible at low tide. The East Tangat, sunk on the 24th of September 1944 during the World War II that was believed to be either a tugboat or an anti-submarine craft. This area has a good visibility and a very good shallow water, which makes it an ideal choice for snorkelers. Lusong Coral garden is a popular Coron Snorkeling experience featuring many varieties of corals. You will enjoy a good visibility there. We will visit the Pass island for a amazing snorkeling and island hopping experience.

          Terrible tour operator, do not book
          Do not book! First of all, booking online costs over twice as much than paying directly with a local tour operator (loads, you'll have no problem finding one). Secondly.. they cram so many people on the boats (24 plus crew) and we would have been sat at the end, without shade and would have burnt so we decided not to go. We have been told that the trip is unrefundable and only got the environmental fee back (200 peso per person) but not the entrance fee to the lagoon because they pay this before we get on the boat. Thirdly, we were not on the manifest. When we complained to the tourist office they quickly scribbled our names on the back. If you do go on a shared tour, check you're on the manifesto as you get on the boat. Advice- find a few people and book a private tour. The shared boats were packed and not well organised. Lastly, we contacted the tour operator for assistance and got no reply. Do not book with this company.

          Great day tour but not for snorkelling
          Amazing host Rameel was so accomodating and looked after us the whole trip. Places visited was nice but did not allow too long at one place. Snorkelling was only 30 minutes and was not a good place to snorkel. Drop off was also not included in price you have to pay the land part back to your hotel. If ur looking for a snorkelling tour this is not it but if u want a fun day trip this is great.

          Boracay Parasail station 3
          First time doing this so was a wonderful ride and very safe and efficient. 3200php for two for 15 minutes. Just before 5pm as they stop at 5pm. We got a video also add 1200php. Was worth it. You need to download an app for this also to upload the data. So make sure you have data. We used Globe for the two weeks Cost us 750php each at Cebu airport There was a really great bar grill up on the beach front looking out to the sailing flotilla next to 7 eleven. Great burgers and cold beer.

          10/10 Great experience
          It was one of my best experiences in Philippines. My guide Jay is an amazing photographer and he took so many photos for me. I could rent equipments like long fins, fin socks and clear kayak.Renting a clear kayak was Jay's suggestion but I'm so happy that I followed his advice:) The tour was very flexble. Thanks Jay and the crews for the amazing tour!!

          Jonathan’s the best tour guide ever!!!
          Took a vacation with my girls to get away from the big city and let me tell you we were not disappointed. Palawan / El nido is a beautiful place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city and our tour guides were just the icing on the cake. Jonathan and the rest of his crew provided a very detailed and immersive experience on the islands. We booked them for two tours, and they were amazing every step of the way. Not only were they respectful, they took amazing pictures of us, provided delicious food, and safely directed us on all the islands. We are forever grateful and will definitely book with them again 🤍 Thank you Jonathan. We can’t wait to come back (:

          Stunning tour of El Nido and Bacuit Islands!
          Absolutely stunning place! Highly recommend renting a kayak to go into the Big Lagoon, well worth it! Guides were great! If I had to do it over again I would pay for the private tour, as it was a large group and a lot of waiting. Tour itself was fantastic and gorgeous scenery!!!

          Boat trip with amazing lunch
          Nice enjoyable trip. Agency contacted me personally the previous night to make sure I know where to meet them, the guide was on time, and everything went smoothly. Special thanks for the great lunch; instead of the usual rice-in-the-box these guys served a table full of meat, chicken, vegetables, shrimps and 2 whole tuna fish (!), + dessert of course. I also liked that our group was small enough (12 people). I strongly suggest you bring/rent water shoes, it helps a lot especially when walking to the boat in the water. You also might want to bring waterproof bag for your stuff, I did not but managed somehow.

          Great experience of cliff jumping and snorkeling in Boracay.
          Everything was perfect, we’ve visited two snorkeling spots and did cliff jumping at Magic island, after which we had a delicious lunch there. Our tour guide Jojit was very helpful and friendly.

          Book it at El Nido in local hotels not at TripAdvisor
          The Tour A includes nice spots in Palawan. The beaches are so special and we went into a cave at secret beach. The pick up was honestly bad organized and in general it is too pricy. My advice book it when you are in El Nido: 1400 Pesos!

          So fun!
          This was so fun - went with 8 year old and 14 year old. Was a terrific action filled day, nothing strenuous - just pure fun. but buy it from the tour guides -we got ours in front of Astoria current beach side - if you can find Danny he was awesome and gave us a great deal. Paid a fraction of the price

          Super Tour
          We did Tour A booked via our Hotel cost was 3200 peso for the two of us, great team of guides and boat crew. We are 58 and 67 years old but the guys really looked after us including doing the Kayaking with us. 5 Stops everyone fantastic and beautiful, the last stop Commando's Beach could have spent less time there and more time elsewhere,that said at no point were we rushed. Need to be in OK physical shape to do this tour

          Good experience, lots of micro-transactions though
          Tour guide was great and overall amazing views. Snorkeling is a must. Some downsides though are: - Lagoons are only accessible by kayak. No swimming allowed. - Kayaks are NOT included. You’ll have to pay $300php per lagoon to kayak, otherwise you’re just sitting on the boat for an hour while everyone else kayaks. So bring cash. - Snorkel gear is NOT included. You’ll have to rent these at the beach before getting on the boat ($200php). Lastly, book this tour while in person, either through the hotel or local tour operator. Otherwise you’re going to be paying more than double the rate.

          River tours
          If your not a fan of malaria, avoid the mangrove River tour. The guides were excellent. Both in the mangrove and underwater River tour.

          Siargao's Sohoton Diving With Jelly Fish
          An interesting experience diving and close encounter with non-sting jelly fish in Siargao's Sohoton Jelly Fish Sanctuary. We had a great time and our volunteer community tour guides (Leo and Nel) helped capture some of the underwater videos. I've created a documentary video and posted on youtube for your viewing pleasure.

        This was the highlight of our time in Coron. The shipwrecks were amazing, you get an even better view if you can do some free diving. We managed to avoid crowds and had an amazing day. Would highly recommend taking this tour!
