Japanese Wreck Hayabusa Maru
When to go diving
This dive site in the Gili is especially aimed at experienced divers because it is a decompression dive. This dive spot is ideal for an introduction to technical diving or for technical divers already certified. The Japanese Wreck was a Japanese WWII patrol boat. It rests straight at 45 meters deep on a sandy bottom. It is located in a protected bay off the coast of Lombok. The shipwreck is about 25 meters long and is covered with corals. A varied fauna has settled in and around the boat: platax, trevallies, barracudas, linden banks, flying scorpion or nudibranchs are commonly observed.
