Dive Sites & Wrecks - Subic Bay, Philippines


We dive 30 wrecks and coral sites with our four fast speed boats leaving in front of the resort at least twice a day. Wreck sites include World War 2 wrecks, battle ships, cargo ships, patrol boats, landing ships, antique steam ships, submarines and airplanes.

Some of the wrecks and reefs near Johan's in Subic Bay, Philippines

Johan's offers more than 15 wrecks within a 5 to 15 minute speed boat ride and 30 wrecks within a one hour speed boat ride from our resort.

Some of the wrecks are marked on the map above but we have many more that have been dived by only a few divers in the world. Up until recently, the bay was closed to all recreational diving by the military and only Johan's offers the possibility of diving on previously unknown virgin wrecks.

We are continuously discovering new wrecks in the area that offers the adventurous diver unparalleled opportunities.

We have original pictures and history covering most of the wrecks so you can read up just before the dive, than get a breifing with drawings on how the wreck lays on the bottom. This all comes in detail with points of interest and hazards to watch for.

For divers holding a wreck divers licence or advanced technical wreck divers we can guide you on shallow or deep penetration. For those whithout these licences we guide you outside the wrecks or teach you how to penetrate the wrecks, than help you get your wreck divers licence.
