There are a total of twelve sunken Japanese ships from the 1944 World War II. One of which is the Kyokuzan Maru Japanese World War II Shipwreck or also known as the ‘Dimalanta Wreck’ owing to its proximity to Dimalanta Island. This shipwreck adventure is 30 to 40 minutes by boat from Club Paradise Palawan. It will require two dives for one to fully appreciate the 136m long and glorious ship.

This historic Japanese cargo vessel functioned as an auxiliary army supply ship for the Japanese Navy. The Kyokuzan Maru stands upright with the hull settled at 42 meters. The deck level is at 26 to 28 meters and is now beautifully covered with crustaceans and hard coral. The wheel house is at 22 to 24 meters and holds scattered China ware and exposed plumbing

The 2nd cargo-hold from the stern houses a Japanese Army jeep chassis relatively intact at 31 meters depth. Advanced certification is a must for this wreck. A PADI Adventure Deep and or Wreck dive is required if one is Open Water diver. Nitrox 32 or 28 prolongs your dive time. Snorkelers can likewise enjoy the adjacent fringing reef which is full of cabbage and other hard coral species.

This Coron diving site made it to Forbes Travel Magazine’s list of Top 10 scuba diving sites in the world. Explore the wrecks as they speak a moment of history and be prepared to be blown away by a wonderful underwater discovery.
