So we have started celebrating the commemoration of WWII in the Solomon Islands.
We feature our Japanese shipwreck the Kashi Maru this week.
This Japanese freighter was caught by USAF bombers on July 2 1945 while unloading a cargo of trucks and fuel to nearby troops based on New Georgia Island. She lies at 17m in Mboroko Harbour 45 minutes boat ride from Munda. Her artefact-filled hold is easily accessible to all levels of diver and areas of the hold are penetrable. The wreck now hosts abundant corals, clams, Moray Eels, Octopi and masses of juvenile tropical fish and crustaceans. This is a truly spectacular dive for WW2 enthusiasts and wreck divers
