This wreck dive is one of the most requested dives in the Coron Island area as it is one of the largest of the wrecks that can be dived. This wreck lies in a range of 17 to 38 meters and has a length of around 118 meters. The boat itself was a Japanese Seaplane carrier and was a very large warship. The ship was almost ripped into two pieces when she was hit by a torpedo and divers can see clearly the huge damage made to the ship when she was sunk. This damage provides easy access for divers to enter the different parts of the boat.
Divers can spot the crane that was used for lifting seaplanes from the ocean and it is intact and lying on the ocean bed. It hosts many barracudas and giant batfish that have claimed it as a residence.
Divers can also spot a mounted anti-aircraft gun at the front of the wreck. As the wreck is deep, and as there are still some hazards from the metal parts of the boat, swim throughs are not allowed on the wreck unless divers have the wreck diving certification. Wreck divers can penetrate some areas including the engine room where the four large engines are clearly visible. The bridge section has collapsed but divers can still see the radio tower. Divers must be very careful on the dive, as sometimes-live ammunition has been found on the wreck.
Marine life includes many giant groupers, sweet lips, batfish, lionfish, scorpion fish, and schools of yellow fin tuna but most of the attractions of this dive are within the boat itself.
