The lighted portion of Irako Maru near an exit
Wreck as artificial reef tangled with soft corals making it home of marine life.
Rolls of interlink wires now calcified after more than 70 years underwater!
Penetrating Kyokuzan Maru, no fear of the dark!
This flatworn was spotted in Irako!
This tiny nudibranch blended with colorful soft corals
Sea squirts grown like flowers covered steel parts of ship wreck
Tangles of purple corals decorated side borad of East Tangat Wreck
Hundreds of bags of cement turn rock hard pillows inside Irako Maru
Coron is one of those places I kept coming back, more than its pristine beaches, crystal waters, stunning views and friendly people, I love its mystery beyond the surface. In our fifth homecoming we dove at Irako Maru, Kogyu Maru and the East Tangat Wreck. Penetrating the holes and the darks inside the monsters always blew me away!
