The vessel takes 20 minutes to access from shore and was 115 meters in length. The Japanese vessel was powered by four diesel engines and carried a Kawanishi flying boat, crane which is now lying on the seabed. Her access is from 26 to 38 meters deep. This is a deep dive and includes metal hazards therefore you can only swim through if you hold a wreck diver certification.
