Yokohama Maru

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 4 votes

The Yokohama Maru is an extremely deep dive, which should only be done by technical divers. It was built in 1912 as an armed passenger and cargo vessel for the Japanese and traveled mainly between Japan and Guam. During the war it was transformed in a troop transport vehicle. It was taken down near Salamaua in March 1942 by a USS Lexington carrier aircraft. The wreck will appear at about 40 meters of depth, in excellent visibility, while the top of the wreck, the bridge, is located at a depth of...

Rated 5.0, 2 votes

Eagle Ray Pass or Eagle Ray Passage is famous for its encounters with huge eagle rays. The narrow passage is officially named Byron's Passage and lies in the Planet Channel. It has a wall-like reef along its channel covered in soft coral, sponges and fans. The passage is created because of its two pinnacles at either side that create a high current channel where big pelagic action is to be expected. And so it does. You will see many huge barracuda, jacks, tuna, eagle rays and many type of reef s...

Sullivan's Patches

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Sullivan Patches consists out of two reefs perpendicular to each other and the complete site is too large to see everything with one dive. In the early 1980s there was a crown of thorn starfish outbreak and they literally ate the reef. The coral took years to grow back, but now it has succeeded and nothing can be seen any more of the enormous apatite of the starfish. It has clear and deep waters all around and a shallow reef top, which are excellent conditions for marine life and prolific coral...

Suzie's Bommie

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Suzie's bommie is located near the sunken barrier about 15 kilometers away from Port Moresby. It is a coral tower that rises from about 35 meters of depth to around 12 meters below the surface. Invertebrates such as the pygmy seahorses, which live on gorgonian sea fans, is definitely the number one reason to dive here. Macro photographers will have a good time, because other small creatures such as nudibranchs and flatworms also inhabit this area. Near the top of the reef live tens of lionf...
