baracuda_smileNathan Kaempfer Thanks for the hot dive tip it was a great source. So the full report, flew into Miyako at sunset, stayed at a hostel near their "Kokusai Street" (3000Y/night), rented a car (3000Y/day), picked up tanks (1000Y/tank if referred by Taka Dive Shop otherwise 2000Y/tank) actually very difficult to find tanks we had to go straight to the wholesale gas company (most people do the all inclusive boat dives 12000Y/day which includes lunch and three tanks), we drove south towards Kurima Island as locals said best place to beach dive. It is a 1K swim from the west facing beach to get to deep waters. We opted to stay in the shallow near the finger style reefs near the beach as they are full of life (Eels, lobster, sea turtle, tons of life). Then we drove to Boragawa Beach almost all the way to the light house on the southern cape. Definitely recommend this dive, it was extremely low tide so we walked the reef out and jumped in (careful many crown of thorns here) but the reef is from 5-10ft below surface to 65 ft at low tide. There are networks of "tunnels" and cracks in the reef that made this an incredible dive allowing you to stay at 50 - 65 ft and cruise near the sandy bottom. Felt a lot like cave diving in many places. Then when you are finished get rid of the tanks and swim east along the shore line (you can kayak or walk if the tide is low enough) and there is a famous cave right at the same beach that has limestone formations and a fresh water stream/waterfalls inside. The rock is like velcro so you can cilmb in and up no problem. You have to swim into the cave and at high tide you might not be able to spot the opening very easily. There are many locals taking tours there so you can follow them. Then we drove the rest of the island and I left that night. I recommend getting involved in the local drinking tradition. Don't ask me why there is a German Cultural Center out their either. Good times, good livin!

baracuda_smileTokai Maru

This Japanese feighter was sunk in Apra Harbour on August 27th 1943. She had already been attacked by one US submarine seven months earlier and was resting up when the fatal attack was launched by another submarine.

She is large, at over 135m and lies in 35m of water, listing heavily to port. A tordedo blew a hole in the number 3 port cargo hold and it was this damage that almost certainly sunk her. The holds still contain some interesting relics including beds and truck frames. The engine room is enormous and the two engines and catwalks are intact. The deck house at the stern still contains some depth charges - do not attempt to touch these!

One amazing feature of this site is that the Tokai Maru rests next to the SMS Cormoran, a German merchant raider that was scuttled in 1917. The two ships actually touch and this is the only place in the world where two vessels, from different conflicts, do so.

The Cormoran is 90m in length and lies in 35m of water. The best way to approach her is to follow the midsection of the Tokai Maru until you see the vessel at 22m. The hull is intact and the engine room easily accessable through skylights.

TOKAI MARU & CORMORAN-This is definitely a one-of-a-kind dive site...there is a WW I German ship (the Cormoran) and a WW II Japanese ship (the Tokai Maru, of course) which are actually in contact with each other. I've read that this is the only place in the world where this is the case. This site is especially popular with visiting military divers. In most cases, it is done from a boat, but I've done it from the beach, when I have divers who REALLY want to see it, and don't mind the 20-minute plus surface swim to & from the wreck! A brief bit of history (don't worry, there's no test!)...the Cormoran was "scuttled," that is, sunk by its own captain, after US forces took over Guam during WW I and told the captain "gimme your boat," or words to that effect. The Japanese ship was actually sunk during battle, and damage from the bombing can be seen on the ship. While the harbor bottom here is around 100'/30m, the top deck of the Tokai Maru is about 50'/14m, while the Cormoran is a bit deeper...60'/18m. Both ships are resting on their sides. While shipwrecks don't have the abundant fish life of the reefs, you'll usually see schools of
Fusillears, and sometimes big Puffer or Porcupine Fish, and this Batfish, ready to have my finger for lunch! As with all shipwrecks, don't try to penetrate the dark interior (outside passageways & rooms are ok) without proper training. The inside of ships often have decades of fine silt built up, and a stray kick will reduce visibility to almost nothing...making it difficult to find your way back out. Email me & I'll tell you a story of why this is a bad idea!

The only wreck in the world where you can touch a WWI wreck and WWII Wreck!

GOOD MORNING SCOTT,
I'M GOING TO HAVE ERIC HELP W/ SOME OF THE DETAILS, AS WELL.

Darlene, Do you have the lat/long for the wreck?

ERIC, HELP? IT WILL BE AN APPROXIMATION BECASUE WE DON'T WANT TO DISCLOSE EXACT. DUE EAST OF AWASSE FOR ONE HOUR.

Do you have the exact date for the wreck?

I'LL LOOK IN MY LOG BOOK, BUT 2009.

I need the approximate dimentions for the wreck.

WE COULDN'T SEE THE MIDDLE/END. WE FEEL AS LONG AS THE EMMONS, FOR SURE.

The depth the wreck, forcastle and to the sand.
TOP WAS AT 220', COULD NOT FIND FORCASTLE
APPROXIMATE DEPTH TO SAND IS PROBABLY 300'

The conditions of the wreck the vis, currents, waves, surge surf, water temp, air temp, ect.

VIS = 50-80', NO CURRENTS THAT DAY DURING SLACK TIDE,, NO WAVES/SURGE
WATER TEMP WAS 69F (I WORE DRY SUIT, CHUCK WORE WETSUIT - MAYBE 5MM), AIR TEMP WAS 69-75'F BECAUSE IT WAS ALL MORNING.

The name of the wreck, any history to the wreck.
NO NAME AVAILABLE
POSSIBLE HISTORY: POSSIBLY CONVERTED DESTROYER TO SOMETHING BECAUSE THE DECK WAS CLEAN. POSSIBLY SUNK DURING THE WAR. NO RECORD BY THE JAPANESE COAST GUARDS. POSSIBLY ONE OF THREE WRECKS IN THE AREA.

The date the wreck was sunk. Any other information that you would think is helpful.
SCOTT, IF YOU PUT ALL, EVEN THOUGH IT IS VAGUE, IT WOULD SATISFY ME BECAUSE I JUST WANT THERE TO BE A RECORD THAT OUR TEAM DOVE IT.

I'M GOING TO TRY ANOTHER DIVE FEBRUAR/MARCH W/ KONDO-SAN.

Hi Scott!
Here are the facts of the dive along with some photos. Larger res photos may be available if desired. Do you have the lat/long for the wreck? From Google Earth: 26 23’ 00” N 128 02’00” E Roughly 3 miles East South East of Ike-Shima. This is a guestimate based on southwest wind with Ike off our starboard aft quarter. It is unlikely one could locate this wreck with this information. Chris Pancoast knows the exact location and all dives should be undertaken with him on his boat due to his experience finding and fishing on the wreck, and his knowledge of the ocean currents in this area of Okinawa.
Do you have the exact date for the wreck? Date of the wreck is unknown; however, it shows similar decomposition traits to that of the Emmons, so I suspect it is from that era (my opinion).

Dive info: 31 Jan 2010, Dive Time 1022; dive duration – 51 minutes; descent time: 9 minutes; time on bottom 4 minutes; Equivalent Narcotic Depth at max depth: 85 feet
Width is approximately 40 feet; length is unknown at this time – we had ~75’ viz and could not see the superstructure from the bow.
Top of the forecastle was 215, main deck at 225, and to the sand was 250 to 270.
VIS = 50-80', NO CURRENTS THAT DAY DURING SLACK TIDE,, NO WAVES/SURGEWATER TEMP WAS 69F (Eric and Darlene WORE DRY SUITs, CHUCK WORE WETSUIT - 5MM), AIR TEMP WAS 69-75'F BECAUSE IT WAS cloudy/raining ALL MORNING.
True name unknown: Wreck named in honor of first dive team lead to dive it: Darlene’s Wreck
Date of the wreck is unknown. The wreck appears to be a cargo ship that is lying in sand and shallow reef patches very exposed to the water column. Age is unknown; it is not a charted wreck according to Japanese Coast Guard. Possible three wrecks in the area according to Chris Pancoast, Boat Captain. This wreck was discovered by Chris Pancoast who has successfully fished it. He inquired of the wreck to the local coast guard and they were unaware of any wreck in this area. Chris reported a suspect structure to Darlene who organized the first exporatory dive on the wreck. Dive team included: Boat Captain Chris Pancoast, Dive Team Lead Darlene Fong, Dive Team Supervisor Chuck DeCesari, Dive Team Photographer Eric Eckman, Safety Support Divers Kurt Reese, and Suzan Gada. Qualifications recommended to dive Darlene's wreck include PADI full Trimix or equivalent with experience to 250 feet or more. Do not attempt this dive on air; the depth of the main deck is beyond air toxicity limits, the open ocean exposure, and unpredictable nature of the dive site make dive's within Tec Deep air limits unreasonable. Perhaps future exploration of the wreck and it's superstructure will find otherwise. This awesome dive was capped off by a porpoise frolicking around the dive boat once we reboarded from the dive. Congratulations to Chris and Darlene for bringing this lost ship to light again!

Cheers! Eric Echman

okigroomerThis dive site is right across the street from Jam Marine Club. You can park on the street right near the steps on the sea wall. The steps lead right into the water where they have built up a protective barrier for wave action. Great place to fin up in higher tide. If you go out to the left you can drop down about 30 - 40 feet the otherside of the jacks. Like Kadena Steps, this area can get kind of turbid and murkey if there is a lot of wave action. You will see all kinds of coral, both hard and soft. Also a diverse collection of fish. Lots of star fish the last time we dove this one. If you go right, depending on the height of the tide you may have to walk over coral until you get into deep enough water to swim. There are sometimes schools of barracuda swimming around here. The wrasses keep busy with their cleaning stations and you'll see snappers and parrot fish taking advantage of their hospitality.

okigroomerThis dive site is one of my favorites. Easy to get in and out. Very diverse as far as fish and coral life. Lots of eels as well as sea snakes. A lot of instructors favor this site as it's easy to navigate and has a sandy bottom. The soft corals here are beautiful and the fish are friendly and not afraid of divers. The clarity can be affected by excessive rain fall and windy conditions. Look closely in cracks and crevices for small macro life including cleaner shrimps and small crabs. There are also usually a lot of nudibranchs to be found. The coral garden across the top of the reef is spectacular. The anemone fish around this area are not afraid of divers and can be aggressive. Unless you have gloves on keep your hands away from them. If you hear a snapping sound look around for the anemone. These guys swim around snapping thier jaws when divers get too close. During the winter months we were able to hear whale songs from the visiting Humpback whales in the area. Although we could not see the whales and had no idea how far away they were, we definetely heard them and it was amazing!

okigroomerBe sure and bring some extra yen for the parking lot. We can usually get out for less than 500 Yen. During the summer months they seem to be open until 7pm. There are bathrooms and pay for use showers. Also an ice cream shop and a noodle shop as well as no shortage of vending machines for drinks. Not exactly sure what time they open the parking lot. But, you could probably park outside of the parking area along the sugarcane fields. The dive area is down the steps and is fairly diverse. Lots of Nudibranchs, anemone fish, scorpion fish, leaf fish, parrot fish, lion fish, Moorish Idols as well as many others. Water clarity here is usually pretty good if the seas have been flat. This area is usually dive able during the summer months when other areas might be too choppy to enter. Winter months can bring wind shifts and choppy seas. The site is very easy to navigate and is popular with Americans as well as Okinawans. There are several local Okinawan dive shops who run shuttles full of divers. It can be crowded, but once you are in the water it's not usually too bad. A lot of the fish here expect to be fed and will come right up to divers. If you have food for them, Vienna sausages, or small shrimps, or commercial fish food they will entertain you until the food is gone.

baracuda_smileOkinawa, Japan was the site for the second largest beach landing in history only second to Normandy, France. The difference is that Okinawa, was almost entirely US Forces verses Normandy, France had combined allied forces. More US Navy ships were sunk in the battle of Okinawa, than any other Navel skirmish. This is due to the nearly 7000 Japanese Kamikaze suicide pilots that dive bombed the US fleet. As divers we are still finding the remains of this battle just off shore. We find everything from coke bottles from 1945 to 1000lb Japanese sea mines. Last week I found 2 X bombs/torpedoes/extra gas tanks, that were 8' long x 24" wide with fins that were found off of the west coast of IE Island/Okinawa Prefecture/Japan. The battle of Okinawa (Operation Iceberg) started 1 Apr 1945. The Marines landed north of the Hija River (green bridge on HWY 58 and/or the red bridge) and the US Army landed south of the Hija River. I have taken the original invasion map and I have overlaid it over modern google earth. The link to see this product is on scuba board.
