The Shinkoku Maru is one of the two mandatory dives in Chuuk. She was one of the eight fleet tankers which refuelled the Japanese Strike Force for Pearl Harbour.

Tonnage: 10,020. Length: 152.4 metres. Beam: 19.8 metres.
Launched: 13 December 1939.

She now features magnificent coral growth and fish life after being hit by a torpedo and sinking to rest on an even keel.
