Philippines Underwater Archaeology, Shipwreck and Salvage Resources

This is my resource link page for useful information on Philippines underwater archaeology, shipwreck resources and information about marine salvage. With a rich maritime history, including lots of action during World War Two, the Philippines has an impressive collection of wrecks; many of which are yet to be discovered. This makes the Philippines a prime location for underwater archaeology, treasure hunters and technical scuba divers.

Please do let me know if you encounter any ‘dead’ links.

  1. Hi –

    I’m searching for any video’s of underwater shipwrecks from WW2 in the Manila Bay, Philipines. My Grandfather’s brother Ken Mills was killed in Feb. 1945 onboard – LCS (L) (3) 7 It was a smaller size battle ship. Three of these were hot & sunk by the Japanese suicide fishing boats. Is there someone/diver who has ever dove upon any of these in the Manila Bay?
