Remnants of World War II, the Tank and Landing Craft wrecks are in 60 feet of crystal clear water off the coast of the Makena Golf and Beach Resort.
Still recognizable after 60+ years underwater, eels have taken up residency in the pipes and barrels. A strange mix of weaponry and old ammunition are interspersed with a plethora of sea life. Schools of Weke or goat fish swim around the wreck in synchronistic harmony. Octopus are regularly found here.
The short swim from one wreck to the other over a sandy bottom, offers an opportunity to find shells. Fragile, but beautiful, Sea Biscuit’s litter the sandy bottom and challenge scuba divers to pick them up without breaking them.
The Tank and Landing Craft are offered as a second dive with a profile of 60 feet for 30.
All dive sites are weather conditions permitting.
Along with the WWII Airplane, the WWII Tank and Landing Craft is one of the most popular historical remnants of the Second World War here in Hawaii.

The 60 feet of crystal clear water allows for visitors to experience this spectacular destination and all the marine life that continues to flourish here. After being underwater for over six decades, eels have since taken up residency in the pipes and barrels; schools of goatfish (Weke) synchronistically swim about, and octopi are regularly seen.
