Diving in Palawan

Palawan
Palawan is diving haven north, south and in between. The place is abundant with diving sites of ship wrecks and coral reefs, not to mention its clear waters that is simply reason enough to make Palawan a favorite dive destination.

The whole year round is diving season in Palawan, but sites are especially remarkable come October to May, when the waters are mostly calmly rested from the bashes of tropical storms. To start off, Palawan’s most interesting dive sites is the Black Island Wreck, located east of the Malajon Island, which is some 3 to 5 hours from Busuanga Island by banca ride. This diving site in Palawan can reveal so much at a 65 feet average depth, but can can mesmerize divers at the maximum depth of 104 feet.

The Concepcion Wreck or Taiei Maru just south of Concepcion Village in Busuanga. This coral covered ship wreck is about 2.5 hours from Concepcion in Palawan, and reveals excellent reefs at 52 feet, and more at its maximum depth of 85 feet. The corals are an abundant haven for different fish species and a wonder to even the veteran diving enthusiast.

Lusong Island has the enigmatic Lusong Gunboat Wreck at its southern end. After about a 2-hour banca ride from the island and as shallow as 20 feet, the wreckage Palawan diving site can already reveal so much to the diving aficionado and make a good impression on Palawan as a worthy diving destination. At its maximum diving depth of 33 feet the wreck site becomes more colorful with schools of fish roaming and just innocently enjoying the nooks and crannies of the reefs.

Not far between the Lusong and Tangat Islands, Palawan, is the Olympia Maru wreck. Astounding Palawan coral reefs inhabited by daring and wicked-looking sea creatures, like the scorpionfish, mark the Japanese freighter sunk in 1944 at the end of the Japanese War.

In between Lajo and Manglet Islands is another exciting Japanese wreckage in Palawan, the Akitsushima, a glying type of boat tender sunk in 1944 near Coron, Palawan. It exhibits amazing fish life and habitat.

Another Japanese freight sunk at the end of the Japanese War is Kogyo Maru. Just south of Olympia Maru and very near Lusong, this 520-foot vessel has deep coral reef 110 feet underwater and mysteriously dark with less light penetrating even in day time. The above are just some of the diving sites Palawan offers to diving fanatics. Palawan blossoms with diving reef sanctuaries for those who want extra ordinary underwater adventures.
