Kashi Maru (Wreck)

This Japanese freighter was caught by USAF bombers on 2 July 1943 while unloading a cargo of trucks and fuel to nearby troops based on New Georgia Island. She lies at 17m in Bairoko Harbour, a 45 minutes boat ride from Munda. Her artifact-fille hold is easily accessible to all levels of divers.

The wreck now hosts abundant corals, clams, Moray Eels, Octopuses and masses of juvenile tropical fish and crustaceans. This is a truly spectacular dive for wreck divers.
