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.

Best dive option out of Coron Town Really good dive experience outside of Coron Town crowds! The center is in front of the best wrecks so you avoid the hour and a half boat ride from town and the amount of divers crowd while diving! TOBY is the number one! I am AOW and my girl is OW and he did the best to adapt the dive to both of us enjoy together! Highly recommended!!!

Boutique experience with the best dive school What an amazing experience. I would recommend Pirate Divers to anyone visiting Coron! Simon helped in the pre-trip organisation on where to stay, booked transport, it was all so easy. The dive shop is not in Coron town and that is the best decision we have made. We did 3 shipwrecks during the day and the staff and organisation was super! JJ, our dive instructor was very knowledgeable. I really appreciated the small group of people (max 4 per instructor) and it felt like I was diving with a boutique dive school rather than diving with the masses. It made the experience so much better. I would definitely visit Coron again and dive with Pirate Divers.

Awesome wreck diving shop in Busuanga! I've thoroughly enjoyed diving with the team at Pirate Divers - they are very professional, look after their equipment and make sure to tailor the dives to the group's ability. Our dive group was always small, and our guide provided an excellent in-depth briefing before the dive. They regularly checked in everyone thoughtout the dive too and I always felt very safe.The wreck and coral garden dives are really outstanding, there is so much marine life and so many features to look at! It was very convenient to book and ask questions using WhatsApp, the team was very responsive and very accommodating.Highly recommended!

Friendly and helpful Did 9 dives in 3 days and had a blast. The wrecks in Coron were some of the coolest dives we’ve ever done. Simon was quick to answer all of our questions on WhatsApp and it was super easy to get everything set up. The dive boat was quite spacious and very comfortable. Our guide (Jayson) was great and the guys on the boat were fantastic. If we get another chance to come to Coron, we will use Pirate Divers again!

Fun and highly recommended We (1 adult, 2 teenagers) had a great experience with Simon and Toby. The kids did the PADI open water course and I just did the dives for fun. The instructors were very patient and did a great job reassuring the kids during their open water training. The equipment was excellent and safety standards were high. Simon and Toby were also a lot of fun to be around, they made the whole experience fun and enjoyable. We saw some nice ship wrecks, reeds, a turtle, and many types of fish. Highly recommended.

We spent two days with Pirate Divers to make our Advanced Open Water diver. It was nothing short of amazing! The instructor Toby was great, knew exactly what we were comfortable doing but still pushing us to learn. As a result we'll be super-confident on our next dives. The dive sites are gorgeous as well - the wrecks are obviously great fun, and also "sand pit reef" (for our underwater navigation dive) was colorful and overflowing with marine life. If you're planning to dive on Busuanga, be sure to book Pirate Divers!

Just finished a week with Pirate Divers Busuanga during which I completed my PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water diver certification courses. I studied with a fantastic instructor named Toby D'Warte - he is deeply knowledgable and was kind, funny, and supportive throughout the process. And the dive sites for certification are just...wow. Stellar dive shop in the perfect location for convenient access to breathtaking dives. Can't ask for more. I feel super prepared for my next dive adventure and am eagerly arranging plans as we speak. I will definitely be returning here in the future, could not recommend more highly!

My wife Fiona and I spent over two weeks diving with Pirate Divers and had an amazing time. We dived all 8 of their main shipwrecks multiple times, as well as Cathedral Cave and Barracuda Lake. I also used this trip to do my Wreck Diver and Deep Diver specialty certifications. Both the fun dives and the instructional dives were really well done. The staff are competent and fun, and they also take safety seriously. A typical fun dive consisted of entering a shipwreck behind one of the divemasters, then following the divemaster along one of their favorite routes through the wreck. The wrecks here are so huge that you will spend your entire dive inside and still not come close to exploring the whole thing! Finally, the shop's location is perfect. It's right at the base of Busuanga Bay Lodge, so you can stay at BBL and walk to the shop each morning. And then they're only a 10-30 minute boat ride away from most of the wrecks too, making it probably the most convenient shop in all of Coron. Thank you to Simon, Toby, Michelle, Marina, Flora, Dyzon, and Shaun for making our time in Coron so memorable! We miss you guys already.

Excellent dive shop offering quick and easy access to all the wrecks. Simon the owner and his staff are fun to hang out with and great dives all over the area. Wrecks are located 5 minutes to 45 minutes by boat from the shop and staying in the surrounding area is very peaceful and local with some good restaurant options in a non touristy environment. Save yourself the 2 hour boat trips to the wrecks from coron town proper and dive with pirate divers.

I had an amazing time getting my Open Water certification with Toby at Pirate Divers. My training was 1:1 and we mostly also had the boat all to ourselves. Toby was extremely experienced and made me feel very comfortable throughout the training. We did some wreck and reef diving and both were very close and really cool. I definitely recommend staying at Busuanga Bay Lodge and diving with Pirate Divers!
