Scuba diving in Barracuda Lake
Barracuda Lake is one of the most unusual and amazing dive sites in the Philippines, located on the north shore of the fascinating Coron Island. The lake's name comes from an extremely large barracuda living in the lake. The site is suitable for divers of all experience levels.
