EAST TANGAT GUNBOAT



Depth:    3m - 19m / 10' - 62'

Skill Level:    All Levels

Description:    Wreck



East Tangat Gunboat

Pretty close to the east-shore of Tangat–Island, you can dive a small, 35m long Japanese anti- submarine-chaser and Tug-boat in shallow water of min. 3m down to max 19m. A perfect dive for beginners or a 3.rd dive of the day, and of course, for underwater-photographer! Her original Japanese name is Tamakaze.



 

The Crew of this boat most likely scuttled it after the air-raid because it is so close to the shore and there are no big damages. Together with Lusong-Gunboat it was one of the easiest wrecks of this fleet for locals as well for the commercial salvage-company (and later on for divers) to salvage all valuable items out and off.

 

However, this wreck is still a lovely dive, most of the time under very calm condition; the visibility varies from 5-15m. A plenty of fish-life around the wreck, with groupers, batfishes, crocodile-fish, the common coral-fishes and, especially on cloudy days or in the late afternoon, you can spot out the rare, spacey-colored, Mandarin-fish, hovering somewhere in the corals of the reef beside of the wreck.


Only a very few options to penetrate, it is pretty easy to navigate on this wreck and for the more experienced divers possible to explore and play around in a buddy-team even without a guide.
