    hey bro,

    actually, you'd be surprised. camotes has changed alot since you went there the last time. heck, it changed alot since i last went there about 8 years ago. i can confirm that there is a wreck there somewhere near the island of tulang. it was a sulpicio lines boat i think. anyway, we got pics of us on the bow before the whole thing disappeared underwater. hmm..that was in the late 80's i think.

    Hi Guys,

    Indeed there's a wreck in Tulang and its in pristine condition and definitely it's not a passenger ship (sulpicio) but rather its a cargo freighter which was carrying lots of softdrinks to camotes. We were there sometime July 2008. have a safe diving

    aquadiveinc,
    Are you referring to the 2 boats between Tulang and the main island? If so, those were the Arquillano's fishing boats, that sank during a typhoon. Hopefully, you took some photos.

    There's another ship wreck, I think, owned by Sulpicio, just not sure where its located, but the Arquillanos hired a couple of commercial divers to salvage whatever they can from that wreck.

    sub,

    aquadiveinc might be right. if i remember correctly, aki was saying that after that thing went down, no fishermen went out fishing coz they all got the sardines (in cans obviously) that got washed on the shore. don't know how deep the wreck would be at but i'm not sure if they really were able to salvage that thing. tulang is nice though and i'm glad that camotes is getting on the diving map.
