I used to snorkle in Viet Nam, Thailand, Malaysia & Indonesia but here is almost the best place to see coral. There are many kinds of coral with different color & all of them still alive. It's awesome. I saw a huge Nemo haha. Must place to go when you come to Coron

This is a sanctuary reef garden as only special boats are allowed in. We've gone twice over the years taking our tow boys then four children we sponsor. This time we took six kids ages 10-15 and they loved it. We took two boats. Two people on each side held onto the boat with their head down and snorkel up... More

stopped here on our boat tour - was expecting more of the same kind of reefs as other places in asia but this was incredible: teeming with life and coral in colours I have never seen before...didn't want to ever get out of the water

We visited this spot as part of the 'Reefs & Wrecks' tour (Lusong Gun Boat, Lusong Coral Garden and Pass Island). We went out 3 days during our stay in Coron Town and this was our favorite tour. The Coral Gardens are absolutely magnificent and easy to snorkel over. One of our boatmen went out with us, managing the children.... More

The array of coral was simply amazing!! There was so many different colors and shapes. I tliterally looked like the coral fields in Finding Nemo! LOL. I've snorkeled all through the Caribbean, Philippines and Thailand and this is some of the best I've seen!

I have dove and swam in many different areas and this is the most beautiful reef i have ever seen. If you know what you are doing and know how to free deep dive it it one if the most beautiful places you could see.

When we visited the current was quite strong. But it was lovely to see the coral. Saw so many fish & felt like i was in the nemo movie

Stunning coral garden but it's so sad to see how so much has died from stupid tourists standing on it. The boatmen about continuously for people to stop standing on it but people just don't understand how much damage they are doing to it. Definitely go on a trip and be careful to not destroy it!

We anchored out away from the beach. The place was the best for the different types of coral. Stay there three hours snorkeling had lunch on the boat. Lot of fish we even saw a turtle. Would go back if I was in coron town again. We hired a boat for 3000 p and each sport we went to cost... More
