With thousands of islands and seemingly endless reefs, the Philippines are a diver's paradise. For mariners throughout history they have also been fraught with danger, and the many hundreds of wrecks that litter these waters bear silent testament to this.
The volume of wrecks is staggering, but so is the span of history they represent. You can find everything from Spanish galleons loaded with Ming Dynasty porcelain, to modern US Navy electronic warfare aircraft. It is possible to see centuries of human history laying on the bottom!
The wrecks are not just historical sites, or museums. Many of them have transformed into magical reefs exploding with life and color, enjoyable by any diver.
This book tells the stories of these ships, tanks, planes and other wrecks in order to really allow the reader to connect with their history. Focusing on the two major wreck diving destinations of Coron and Subic Bay, this book is essential reading for anyone looking to visit these legends beneath the waves.
