Wreck Diving

The blue sky melts into the calm waters of the bay as the boat pulls into the site of the first wreck, just five minutes away from the dive shop. Here at Pirate Divers Coron, we like to say that the WW2 shipwrecks are right in our backyard. With most wrecks located only around half an hour away from the dive shop, it allows us to focus not on the commute, but on what’s really important – scuba diving.

With a team made up of both local and international divemasters and instructors, with years of experience and thousands of dives under their belt, we guarantee quality dives, a friendly atmosphere, top service and a high dive guide-to-diver ratio. All dives are tailored to our guests’ needs, checking in on their level and comfortability underwater.

Amazing PADI certification experience in Coron! My boyfriend and I got PADI certified with Pirate Divers in Coron. Coron is definitely one of the most special places to do Scuba: great visibility, healthy corals and shipwrecks. We absolutely loved the experience. The staff at the school are lovely and the instructors are very knowledgeable. Our instructor, Lukas, was fantastic. If you go to Coron and you are planning to dive, ask for Pirate Divers and and Lukas!

Awesome experience … with several hundred dives, these were some of best 19 dives every Busuanga Bay is an amazing dive destination. The Busuanga Bay Lodge is strategically located 5 minutes from one of the largest wrecks and no more tha 45 min boat ride to most every other dive. The Pirate Divers dive shop is great … accommodating both advanced, wreck and open water divers. Thee were a few stumbles (broken compressor, shortage of O2 for NITROX), but everyone did their best to solve the issues. Their diver masters are safety aware, very competent, but not overwhelming… shout out to flora who gave me 14 STUPENDOULY GREAT DIVES .. Never made it to Coron Town, because staying in BBL is so easy! 19 memorable dives in 6 days … even a night dive 👍👍👍 I will definitely come back

Excellent diving experience It was a first diving experience for us and it was awesome. Lukas was the most amazing teacher, explaining everything for us with patience. He ensured that we understood each step perfectly and made the whole experience truly enjoyable. His detailed explanations and enthusiasm for diving made us feel both safe and excited about exploring underwater. It's rare to find an instructor who combines such expertise with great teaching skills, and Lukas definitely has both. Highly recommend for anyone looking to dive, whether you're a beginner or experienced!

The most friendly Pirates in Philippines My friend recommended me the Pirates and now I am forever thankful. So well organized, excellent from top to bottom. Amazing dive sites if you like wrecks. I had the opportunity to dive with Dexter who is a fantastic dive master and will show you Busuanga's hidden treasure. Michelle who is the desk manager will do everything she can to have the best possible diving experience organizing and picking which dive site you should visit.

10/10 gerne wieder! Super Erfahrung, super Laden und Tolle Tauchlehrer. Ich habe meinen Open Walter Diver mit Lukas und Lukas(Ranger) gemacht. Beide Sprechen deutsch. Perfekt für mich. Lukas hat alles entspannt erklärt, verdeutlicht und seine Erfahrung mit ins Spiel gebracht. Man merkt das es nicht nur sein Beruf ist. Auch Ranger war voll dabei. Beide super Lehrer. Die Kurse waren zum Glück sehr klein und man hatte quasi eine 1zu1 Betreuung. Ebenfalls das Restliche personal, wie die Büro Dame und die Herren vom Boot waren super freundlich und Hilfsbereit. Alles in allem ein Super Team. Sehr Familiär und Professionell. Kleine negative Dinge findet man immer. Allerdings habe ich hier nichts was die Bewertung negativ beeinflusst. Ich bin absolut zufrieden und hoffe ich kann weitere Kurse besuchen.

The coolest dive boat and the most professional diving day tour! I had an excellent day's diving with great service from Divemaster Tom, Captain (& cook!) Oliver and the rest of the friendly crew. I was booked in for 3 fun dives (2 wrecks & 1 reef) plus a refresher dive as it was 2+ years since my last one. For the refresher dive, I expected the typical cursory rush through getting into the water and a quick buoyancy check. But as we headed to the first site, Tom took us through a complete review of all our equipment, setting it up to dive. When we arrived we got in the water next to the beach and our small group all had to demonstrate that we could successfully do the basic drills (including regulator purging, regulator recovery, mask clearing and fin pivot). This was the perfect reminder and preparation to enable us to go straight to our first dive on a nearby shallow wreck. Tom's instructions and patience above and below the water were exemplary and made the first dive effortless and immediately enjoyable so I could get the most out of this chance to dive a wreck. We did a 2nd, more advanced wreck dive and Tom led us expertly inside the hold and along the bridge of the impressive Morazan Maru cargo/passenger ship. What an incredible experience! We surfaced and feasted on an incredible lunch of freshly prepared dishes of fish, chicken, squidballs, vegetables and rice. Thanks again to Oliver and Buddy for theor hard work preparing this! We finished with a nice reef dive and headed back to Coron by about 5pm, where a motortrike was waiting to deliver us back to the dive shop, which was a few metres from my hotel. By the way, my wife also enjoyed some great snorkelling while we dove and saw turtles, Titan Triggerfish and juvenile Batfish from the surface! So this is also a great day out for your partner if they don't dive, or as was the case with my wife, was unable to dive due to recent nasty flu and congestion. So, hopefully my wife and I can return to the Philippines in the future, in which case we will definitely go with Pirate Divers!

Come and dive with us in Busuanga.

We had an amazing time while diving with Pirate Divers. The Wrack Dive Course as well as the fun dives were really nice. Everyone from the crew was very professional and had a good kind of humor. Special thanks to Flora and Toby! :-)

My time at Pirate Divers Busuanga was absolutely fantastic. Everything was well organized, and the rental equipment was excellent. The team took great care to ensure that everyone felt comfortable and safe while exploring the wrecks. Despite arriving with a group of divers with varying experience levels, we were able to dive according to our skills and safety. Diving with dugongs was a breathtaking experience. Huge thanks to Dyzon, our guide, who created unforgettable memories with us that we will forever cherish in our hearts. His expertise and enthusiasm truly made our experience exceptional. The entire team was incredibly kind and friendly, creating an amazing athmosphere. I highly recommend Pirate Divers Busuanga for an exceptional diving adventure.

Just had the most amazing dive experience with pirate divers! We booked 6 wreck dives and a diving day with the dugongs. The center is located in a very nice location offering a nice view at the ocean. The center is very well organised. The rental equipment is great and the staff is just awesome. We felt so comfortable. We got the same guide, Dyzon for all of our dives. He is an amazing guide and we had very special dives with him. If I come Bock to Coron, I would definitely go diving with these guys again! Thank you so much 🥰

I had a great experience with pirate divers!! I’m already certified and have done diving and refreshers in multiple countries in Asia but Mike gave the best refresher training I’ve ever received anywhere!! Perfect English and he went into so much details w care and really made sure we understood everything he was saying. I did the dive with Flora and she was absolutely amazing and so fun!! I rented a go pro from them and flora took SOO many beautiful pics and videos of me. She even gave me posing ideas 😄 we went to two wrecks and the big one ( Okikawa) was most interesting dive I’ve ever done!

My first time diving, wasn't sure whether I would feel comfortable and like it. It was great! Instructor Toby is a really nice and professional, native English instructor. Went for my PADI Open Water Diver course and got it here. Really enjoyed it! He knows a lot about the underwater world and is passionate about it. They are very close to great shipwrecks with lots of coral and sea life. Would recommend it to anyone!
