The Shinwa Maru (Friendly Spirit) wreck was a Japanese WWII cargo ship. This impressive 120 meter long vessel now lies on her port side in 16-34 meters of water. There are two big bomb blast holes in the starboard side. Mine sweeping equipment, car batteries, ammunition, cables and sake bottles, kitchen equipment and chop sticks are some of the artifacts strewn over the wreck. There are also two diving helmets. The wreck is home to schools of jacks as well as impressive macro life.
