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 holds are empty and the king-posts and masts are stretched out from the wreck to the sand and make intriguing explorations.
