120 ft /40 mt
The mighty ship of the the Irako is not for the basic diver, the depth she is resting is deep! Beware of Nitrogen narcosis and disorientation, the top is around 60 ft / 18mt from the surface. You descend from the anchor line of your boat to reach this point. From there you make your way down the mast to the opening that once covered the decks. This is around 100 ft / 30 mt of water.

Entering the hull is both claustrophobic and exiting, You will need your lights here, as the inside is completely dark! Making your way to the engine room with your dive guide on the lead, you will see the engine and the different wheels and pistons that once powered this Japanese cruiser. You’ll only have time for one half of the ship so make your exit trough skylight along the engine room’s long shaft. The mast will be to towards the length of the ship. This is where you will ascend. Do your safety stops along the way and follow your dive computer so as to avoid the bends whenever necessary.
