- About the dive site:
A dive from the history books! During World War II, 5 Japanese Kamikazes hit the American Destroyer, leaving 60 Americans and many wounded. They decided to sink the ship, so that it would not fall in the hands of the Japanese. It is a stricking wreck but being an experienced diver is a must. Maximum depth at this dive site is 42 meters deep / 140 feet and sometimes, has a very strong current. In order to dive at this site, the diver must have completed more than 50 dives and are certified Advanced level or above.
