This dive site is a wreck dive that is named after the landing site of the first Christian missionaries in the area. They arrived in Irian Jaya and placed the landing spot on a beach very close to the dive site. The wreck lies at around 18 metres on a sandy bed close to this beach.
Of the wrecks in Raja Ampat, this boat is one of the most accessible with many items still to be seen when penetrating the boat. It was a Japanese Navy Patrol Boat that sank during World War II and it is now completely colonised by sponges and soft corals. As it is relatively shallow with maximum depths of 20 metres, divers will be able to spend adequate time on the dive and explore the wreck. Visibility is also good and can reach 30 metres on a good day. Penetration of the wreck should only be completed by divers with the relevant experience.
Divers can still spot the ships lamps and the depth charges. Divers will be able to penetrate the engine room and the communications room. The front hold can also be accessed and divers can see the switchboard and ammunition as well. The wreck is now home to a huge variety of marine life including humphead parrotfish, napoleon wrasse, moray eels, scorpionfish, and lionfish. The walls of the wreck are home to many smaller creatures such as gobies, shrimps, and nudibranchs. These can all be seen on night dives to the wreck, which are very popular. Towards the end of the wreck, there is a smaller area that is known as critters corner. This is a great spot for muck diving and divers can easily find mantis shrimps, seahorses, devil scorpionfish, leaf fish, and frogfish in this area of sand and rubble.
