The Baby Barge

Not a remarkable wreck but the reef surrounding it is great! There is a cavern on the deep side of the wreck, however, and it is not unusual to find one or two white tip reef sharks sleeping in it. Turtles are usually everywhere and seeing 5 or more is not uncommon.
The wreck lies in about 70’/21m but if you want to check out the cavern the maximum depth will be 85’/26m

The Corsair Airplane Wreck

Probably the most famous of Oahu’s wrecks. It is small but definitely worth a visit since it is remarkably intact and good airplane wrecks are rare! It has been down there since 1945 when the pilot ditched it after engine problems during an exercise.
It is a deep dive with a maximum depth of 107’/32m and with air that makes the bottom time about 15 minutes. The wreck is surrounded by hundreds of garden eels halfway out of the sand.
