Diving in Coron mainly focuses on about 30 WWII Japanese wrecks, and salt water/fresh water lakes.(below right) A caterpillar tractor inside one of the boats. (below) Nudibranch – soft-bodied, marine gastropod mollusk which sheds its shell after its larval stage. They are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. WikipediaGoing into the wrecks could be a bit unnerving. This trip marked the first time we dove below 100ft. To add to that, it was inside of a boat, and we had about 7 minutes before we had to begin to ascend. We trusted our dive master, who had been through the wrecks thousands of times. I couldn’t help but think that if he had a sudden heart attack or something, we would have to find our own way back to the surface. That would have been very difficult, and even more scary. below – Mandarinfish, one of the most beautiful fish in the world. below – Kayangan Lake

There is a layer of spring-fed, lighter, freshwater that is the temp of a hot bath. There is also a layer of heavier, cold, saltwater that is replenished at high tides and during storms. How the heavy water stays on top of the lighter water, I have not idea. Apparently a barracuda got trapped inside the lake. We got lucky, and saw it swim by.
