The port of Batangas is used
by ships and ferry boats bound for nearby Mindoro Island. Batangas Bay is a popular dive spot
with many reefs and sites for divers. There are several known shipwrecks. One is a capsized barge (identity unknown) in 15-50' at 'Twin Rocks'
the other is a ferry sunk postwar.
