Diving with Rocksteady Dive Centre
Coron is a fantastic place to go wreck diving as there are a number of Japanese WW2 wrecks within a reasonable distance from Coron. There are many dive centres to choose from with the town and much is up to personal choice. I chose Rocksteady Dive Centre as it had been recommended to me by a fellow PADO pro who had dived there himself.
I dived with Rocksteady for four days doing a total of 12 dives. I had a fantastic experience and I found the staff to be very professional and safety conscious but still with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Throughout my time diving, I was guided by Bong, one of the DMs at Rocksteady and without doubt, he led me on a number of spectacular wreck dives. Rocksteady are generous in terms of how they staff the boats and dive guides are carefully matched to customers by Karin, the owner, based on the level of experience each diver has. For me, this meant that I was able to do a number of good penetrative dives without experiencing the silt been kicked up by other less experienced divers.
I used my own gear, but rental gear appeared to be in good condition. The boats were well maintained and quite spacious and a good lunch was provided each day by the crew on board the boat. Without doubt, this is a good centre to dive with if you are diving in Coron and one that I would not hesitate to recommend or return to. A five star experience!
Equipment: All equipment can be rented but in addition, I would recommend taking, a hat, towel, sun glasses and sun screen. The boats are big enough for people to take personal effects such as camera and for them to stay dry.
