Kavachi Korner

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

We call Kicha Island our "crown jewel"- a small island, but rich in diversity both above and below the surface. Drifting down through massive rock formations cleaved from the island eons ago, we reach the wall where the action usually begins. A loud "KA-BOOM" has everyone looking around anxiously, checking everyone's gear, until we remember Kavachi, the emerging volcano 18 miles south of Kicha. For some reason, this particular wall catches the sound with sometimes painful intensity, giving a per...

Bonegi One, Hirokawa Maru

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.0, 4 votes

The Bonegi I or Hirokawu Miru is a Japanese transport ship that was attacked by American Dive Bombers and beached in November 1942. Access in and out of this wreck is easy and safe from the nearby shore making it ideal for beginner to advanced divers. The shallower sections of the ship, starting at about 5m, are fairly broken up with the main attraction being the fantastic coral and fish life. The deeper parts, up to depths of 57m, are far more intact and makes for a very interesting dive. The h...

The Kasi Maru (Casi maru), a Japanese freighter, was bombed at anchor after local coast watchers tipped off American forces. The 45 meters long wreck now sits only twenty meters from the shore; the hull lies in 18m, which makes it a good site for snorkelers and novice divers alike.
