The Kogyo Maru Wreck is located in Coron Bay in the Philippines. It is a former 158m long Japanese Freighter. It was sunk by US Planes during World War II in 1944.

The Kogyo Maru is now lying on her starboard 34m deep. During the dive it is possible to explore the six Cargo Holds where you still find Construction items and even a Bulldozer! This allows easy penetration possibilities. The construction material was there to build an airfield somewhere in the Pacific. You can also visit the deck and the engine room. Even anti aircraft guns can still be found on the deck ! This is really great for nice underwater pictures.

There is a good marine life around the shipwreck with many groupers, Barracudas as well as the usual reef fishes of the Palawan area. There is nice hard and soft coral and sponges growing all over the Kogyo Maru too.

Due to the depth, this dive site is reserved to advanced divers but is great for beginner wreck divers as penetration is quite easy. It is situated not far from the Irako Wreck and the Olympia Maru which arenalso great ships to explore! It takes about 15 min to reach the spot by speed boat from Coron Resorts.

Most people are here for Wreck Diving.

You can dive Kogyo Maru all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Kogyo Maru on the right for the exact location.

One Dive Log in “Kogyo Maru

  1. Hi there! What is the name of the massive flower-like coral on the top deck of this wreck? I’ve never seen such large ones before.

    Thanks.
