Nanshin Maru Tanker

The Nanshin Maru Tanker was a Civilian tanker approx 834 gt.

The so-called "Black Island Wreck" can be easily identified as a small tanker converted to carry specific fuel (gasoline, Diesel, lube oil etc.) in small isolated tanks for replenishment of land-based depots.

The ship is approximately 50 meters long sitting upright on a sandy bottom.

Location: Close to Black Island Beach in front of the stranded vessel.

This dive site is perfect for beginner wreck divers and underwater photographers. It is a beautiful dive in clear water. You can see plenty of scorpion fish, lion fish, trumpet fish, groupers, and bat fish.

Max depth: 32 meters. The wreck starts in 21-meter deep water.
