Description:    Wreck



Pioneer Wreck

The "Pioneer" Wreck is still unidentified but thought to be either the Japanese WWII Oakita Maru or Mogami Maru. It is about 60m long, in the upright position and still mostly in one piece. There is a torpedo hit on the stern but the prop is still remaining. The wreck has more fish than anywhere else on Malapascua due to its depth, as well as sharks, rays, barracuda and groupers. Only diveable when the tides are right, so you should arrange this in well in advance.
