Dona Marilyn Shipwreck - Cebu Province Attractions

Dona Marilyn Shipwreck

One of the highlights of diving in Malapascua is the proximity of the Filipino passenger ferry wreck, Doña Marilyn which sunk about 20 years ago, in an area not far from the island of Manuc-Manuc and Masbate.


This 100-meter long wreck is lying down intact on its starboard side in 32 meters of water. The top, being only 20 meters away from the surface is covered literally with amazing beautiful soft corals.


The wreck is home to a lot of corals and fishes. And on the sandy bottom where the cargoes has been scattered, you may occasionally see gray nurse sharks and black spotted stingrays. Dives to this site, due to the depth and usually quite strong current is advisable only for advanced divers.
