Skeleton Wreck is a wreck dive within the Coron Island area that is used as both a snorkelling spot and dive site. The wreck is quite shallow, at about 6 to 25 meters and it is mounted on the reef. It gets its name from the fact that the wreck has deteriorated so much that only its ribs are visible as a skeleton of the 25-meter long boat. The wreck is small and so dives usually end up on the reef, where the exploration can continue.

At around 14 meters, divers can find an opening on the right hand side of the boat, the starboard side, which leads to the coral reef. Although most of the boat has long weathered away this has meant that the wreck is relatively safe to dive and so suitable for all level of divers.

Macro divers will have fun exploring the nooks and crannies of the ribs, and should find enough nudibranchs, ghost pipefish, and scorpion fish to keep themselves happy. The usual tropical fish are found here as well and divers can expect to find larger tuna fish, reef sharks, and sometimes turtles. On the reef, divers should be able to spot more marine species including anemone fish, angle fish, and many different damselfish.
