A perfect photo opportunity, this World War II plane is a favorite among divers. Unlike other wrecks on Oahu, the Corsair was not intentionally sunk as an artificial reef. The pilot ... moremisjudged his fuel and made an emergency landing in 1948. Located just outside of Maunalua Bay in East Oahu, the plane sits at approximately 110 feet. In addition to the plane wreck, the area boasts a unique garden eel population and a dive site known as Spitting Caves (or China Wall Drift). Rock formations on the surface can cause swells to “spit” up into the air, and under the waves divers will find a 35-50 ft wall and a variety of caves and ledges to explore. Currents can be strong at this dive site, so always use the mooring line and keep an eye on your buddy.

About a mile off shore with Diamond Head crater in the background rests the wreck of the YO257. This old World War II Navy ship is one of the island's most popular dive sites. ... moreShe is resting upright at about 95ft. Holes have been cut through-out the ship making easy access to some of the interior cabins.

A retired Navy Yard Oiler built in the 1940s, the YO-257 was purchased by Atlantis Submarines Hawaii and sunk in 1989 off the coast of Waikiki. The YO, as it’s called by locals, sits at about 100-115 ft of water, but divers reach the top decks by 85 feet.
Teeming with marine life, one of the highlights of this wreck is the turtle cleaning station on its main deck, where divers can have a once in a lifetime experience with these magnificent creatures. Tropical reef fish abound, along with moray eels and reef sharks.
A very popular dive site, it’s accessible by most divers but can have very strong currents. We recommend you always use the mooring line and also keep a careful watch out for the 80 ton Atlantis Submarines that may cross your path.

Baby Barge is a great East Oahu wreck to explore because it has beautiful reefs and affords access to other sites. Sitting upright at 60-85 feet, divers can explore coral colonies ... morealong the deck which sits at 45 ft. Along the left side of the wreck, you’ll find a 15-20 ft ledge that drops down to about 85 ft. Green sea turtles often take advantage of the caves along this ledge and white tip cave sits towards the western edge. This is a great place to see white tip reef sharks along with an occasional Galapagos shark.
Getting out to the site takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes and can be a little bumpy depending on conditions. Currents can also be strong and you should watch the surge. Fantasy reef is usually the second dive where divers can drift dive through overhangs and swim-throughs at 45 ft.
