I've searched the net but all I can find is that there are two of them...
Size, type, etc.?
Are they worth a dive or two?
I haven't dived them, but here is synopsis of what can be found in Jack Jackson's "Dive Guide: The Philippines" ISBN 1 85974 054 5:
Access: dingy or shore
Conditions: Normally calm. Viz. can reach 20m.
Avg. depth: 30m
Max. depth: 35 m
40 m Japanese freighter. Lies on sand at 35 m with mast from 20-27m. An easy ship for penetration by more experienced divers, it is also good for photography.
Avg. depth: 25m
Max. depth: 28m
Slightly smaller 35m Japanese freighter. Lying on its side on the sand at 28m. Not quite as good a dive as wreck 1.
I hope this helps. If you decide to dive there, I'd be interested to hear your opinions.
