Truk Lagoon

Sankisan Maru

The history of this vessel or its commercial purpose is unclear as well as its exact measurements. But, with only front half the wreck intact, the overall length does not really matter.

The half of this wreck that is easily accessible to rec divers (the mangled stern side is deeper in 150+ ft) has so much things to see, one dive may not be enough. There are interesting hold contents with bullets, trucks, and aircraft engines all competing for divers' attention.

Highlights are numerous and include the contents of the holds as well as the anchor still sitting in it splace on the bow.

Hazard - those wishing to see the prop on this wreck would have to drop down to 150 ft. Visibility can be bad as well.
