Irako

Japanese refrigeration ship, displacement 9,570 tons, length 147 meters. Location: At the mouth of Coron Bay

Probably the best wreck dive in the Philippines. The Irako is quite
intact and because of the good visibility you know you are on a big
shipwreck. Big groupers, schools of tuna and yellow fin, lion fish and
scorpion fish live around this wreck. Two sea turtles live in the
crumpled and folded metal of the superstructure. There is a beautiful
deep penetration through the engine room for trained, experienced and
properly equipped divers.

Irako usually has the best visibility of all the wrecks in Coron Bay.

This
dive is best made at deck level while breathing 32% Nitrox for a 50%
increase in allowable bottom time. Penetration of the interior would
require 30% or 28% Nitrox depending on which deck level you wish to
swim through.

Max depth: 43 meters on the bottom, deck level at 28 to 35 meters.
Recommended certification level: Advanced Open Water Diver, Deep Diver
Specialty, Wreck Diver Specialty.
