You can snorkel some of the wrecks, but scuba is the way to go. Longer down time to soak in the views and explore the wildlife that has made these ships their homes. Would suggest at least 1 shipwreck dive here if you haven't done any yet.

There are some great wrecks here and well worth exploring as many as possible. We were really lucky that the sights were not busy and we got to enjoy them virtually to ourselves!!! Go check them out - they have been down there a long time and won't be there forever!!!

The 2nd World War wrecks are really impressive and the visibility is great. You'll be able to explore the wrecks from the inside without a torch, even at more than 25m depth ! Really worth the dive !

The wreck is not that deep and covered with plenty corals. Sea trees here is incredible huge which I never see before. However, the vision here is not that good compares with its scense. Photoshooting here is a hard work and you may have to control your trobe much better than other place. To dive here, please make sure that... More

The visibility leaves a lot to wish for, but it was still a cool experience. And they are very shallow so if you have your open water and feel safe about it your self they will most likely let you go in in the smaller ones

This was my first real wreck dive that I have been able to do. The day I went out I was able to do both the Tangat and east Tangat Gunboat wrecks. The dive master was happy to take us into the wrecks if everyone in the group was happy. During my trip there was a member who didn't want... More

Our Capt. Anthony and first mate Toto of the Kevin Joy were great! We went to the wet market with Toto and bought food and supplies for the trip and they did the rest, acting as tour guides and chefs! Would definitely book them again. The wrecks were cool and very visible just snorkeling around.
