DR Maru

Local Name:

DR Maru


I am told that the depth here is 25 to 30 feet.


I know this has been dove from shore. I'd really like some input from someone still on Kwaj as the best was to dive this one!

This wreck was reported by Broadwater in his book "Kwajalein: Lagoon of Found Ships". It was re-discovered around May or June of 2006 by Bob Swanson & Jonathan Welchman. Based on Broadwater's description, we believe this wreck to be what Broadwater calls "DR Maru".


I believe that we are seeing a boot, foul weather gear, grab rail and a couple portholes. so, for a little rubble wreck, this might prove to be an interesting site to explore!
