Wreck diving in the Philippines
Busuanga Bay Lodge is a magnificent 4 star resort, designed as part of a luxe enclave overlooking the West Philippines Sea. The main attraction of Busuanga Bay Lodge must surely be the wreck diving found within easy reach of the resort – a fleet of Japanese supply ships which were sunk in September 1944 by a US Navy strike force of fighters and dive bombers. There’s now 24 ships scattered around the bays of Busuanga Island and Coron, many of which can comfortably be dived within recreational limits. Several of the wrecks are in excellent condition and you’ll see artillery, equipment and general goods still on-board. The area also boasts a wide range of dive sites to suit all tastes and levels of experience, from shallow reefs to pinnacles and drop off’s.
One well known dive site is Barracuda Lake. Diving this site requires a short but steep mountain hike over some limestone cliffs (carrying your equipment). The reward is a pristine lake with unusual thermoclines ranging from 27 – 39 degrees C. Combine great diving with stunningly beautiful topside scenery of the archipelago (virgin beaches and coves) and you have all the ingredients for a superb holiday and diving location. Busuanga Bay Lodge offers luxurious accommodations and services, as well as opportunity to explore the gorgeous area by boat, kayak, mountain bike and foot.
