this is an eyesore. Tons of dumped metal equipment and very little sea life. it is a terrible way to treat the environment and the people of vanuatu. I think the Americans should come back and clean it up

Visited with Allan Power Dive Tours - Guides gave a brief history of the site. WAs amazing to see all the junk which was dumped post WW2. Great site for a dive.

Such an awesome place to snorkel. There is a heap of machinery and objects left from World War 2. Loads of amazing fish and coral. Defiantly worth going to.

Response from Lee B | Reviewed this property |
The cost of 500 Vatu and your taxi fare is correct. If you want to scuba dive on the site then you can ask any of the providers that go there. We dived with Coral Quays. You can also snorkel on the site if you would... More
