During the Spanish – US war in 1898 the Spanish scuttled the San Quentin in the hope of blocking the passage between Grande Island and Chiquita Islands to the Americans who were relentless in there approach. The San Quentin lies in only 12 metres of water and is often frequented by great visibility being exceptionally close to the entrance to Subic Bay.
